Default I'm eating McDonalds right now...

...and it is delicious! I NEVER thought I would order a salad at McD's, but I did it today, and it is so good. I ordered the Southwest Salad with grilled chicken which my loseit app tells me is about 420 calories in all. The sodium is still out of this world (900mg), but still a not bad choice when faced with McD's.

YAY! I was worried when I saw the thread title. I was like, "NO! You're so close to ONEderland!" But look at you! Rocking weight loss at MickeyD's!

Good for you!!! It's so funny how salads can be really enjoyable once you get used to the idea of eating rabbit food

Good job! That sounds yummy, I might have to get someone to bring me one sometime. I can't go into McDs anymore. The smell of nuggets alternately makes me ill or causes cravings.

MMM I love McDonald's salads! I get the Spicy Thai one with grilled chicken, so yummy - I enjoy it while the family eats their burgers once in a while.

Thanks! The salad was so tasty, and pretty satisfying too. I'm so glad I tried it, I always had this thing about not eating a salad at McD's, but it was so good. This will definitely be my go to when Cam is insisting on his happy meal fix.

Kukkie -- Yes, we did end up there for 'yes day', but it turned out okay. I'll just pray the sodium doesn't kick my butt tomorrow!

I eat at McD several times a week because my kids love to go there of the weekends and I have a quick lunch with my mom on Weds.
I always order the grilled chicken cesear salad, no croutons and I use half the cesear dressing. So delish and so filling. If you have to eat there, the salads are definately the way to go.

Nice!! I love McD's for healthy choices, actually! If I'm going through the drive-through for some reason and not going home after, I order 2 honeymustard grilled snack wraps, then dump the insides of one onto the other. And an order of apple dippers and a diet coke if I'm feeling really crazy.

If I'm going home, I order that same thing, then take it home and dump everything onto a La Tortilla wrap with lots of extra dijon mustard... that's REALLY delicious!

I've eaten there a couple times this year. A mcdouble with no cheese had 320 calories. Take the top bun off and takes away another 50 or 75 calories...I forget. I've seen a commercial about a new grilled chicken breast sandwich coming and it's supposed to only have something like 340 calories. I think I saw something about them trying to make their happy meals less fatty and fewer calories for the kiddies.
