The Egg White Delight: An Egg McMuffin with Egg Whites
Yesterday McDonald’s announced that they will be updating their menu boards next week with calorie count information. The press release included some possible new menu items for next year including an Egg McMuffin using egg whites, Canadian bacon, white cheddar and a whole grain muffin. This healthier Egg McMuffin will be called the Egg White Delight (260 calories).
The menu items being explored for 2013 include more recommended food groups. Among the additions being tested:
- More seasonal fruit and vegetables options, such as blueberries and cucumbers, during peak seasons.
- Additional produce side options and grilled chicken choices for Happy Meals.
- The McWrap (we posted about this last month), inspired by McDonald’s Europe, features fresh vegetables and is available in three flavors – Chicken & Bacon, Sweet Chili Chicken, and Chicken & Ranch – starting at 350 calories.
- New breakfast choices, including an egg-white breakfast sandwich on an English muffin made with 8 grams of whole grain.
