Happy Meal Anyone?

My husband and I are preparing for a big international trip, so we are somewhat pressed for time. We’re heading out tonight to run errands for the last things we need. In the interest of time, one of my first thoughts is “let’s just grab something quick to eat while we’re out,” which can, but doesn’t always equal healthy. We haven’t decided what we’ll do yet, but I sometimes forget that happy meals can often be very healthy and quick, and it’s more about forcing your brain to actually think that way. As a side note, I don’t eat peas (they’re legumes) 😉The Authentic Happy Meal

If you haven’t, I’d encourage you to look here: http://nutrition.mcdonalds.com/getnutrition/ingredientslist.pdf

Almost every thing on the McDonald’s menu, contains wheat (no wonder we’re addicted). Even their candied walnuts have “wheat starch” and the seasoning that goes on their “100% natural angus burger,” contains 17 ingredients alone, including “artificial” junk. Wait, a natural burger with fake stuff?
