Step Away From the Egg McMuffin!

By Jennifer Sage On January 30, 2013 Under Nutrition

Yuck! That’s all I can say. If you are the kind to grab an Egg McMuffin on the go, you may want to think twice the next time you are tempted, especially if you are using them for fuel before or after an early morning Spinning® class! This breakdown of the makeup of this American standby and its 50 mystery ingredients might change your mind for good. Husband and wife PhD team, Mira and Jayson Calton, the authors of the book Rich Food, Poor Food, examined the makeup of the breakfast sandwich in Livestrong magazine. They also give a recipe for a much healthier alternative. I love the title of this book too—I’m thinking I’ll be getting this for my bookshelves soon!
