What is an Egg McMuffin? It's McDonald's fast food breakfast sandwich, consisting of an English muffin, a fried egg, processed cheese, liquid margarine and Canadian bacon.  Here is list of reasons why you should think before eating an Egg McMuffin:

  • Processed ingredients

  • Laced with preservatives

  • High in sodium

  • High in cholesterol

  • Prepared using hydrogenated liquid margarine

First 5 ingredients include:  enriched flour, high fructose corn syrup and sugar

Did you know that one Egg McMuffin contains 820 mg of sodium (34% of your daily sodium intake) and 260 mg of cholesterol (87% of your daily cholesterol intake)*? And the reality is that you will probably order 2 of these, which means 600 calories, 1640 mg of sodium 520 mg of cholesterol!  It's no secret that foods high in cholesterol can increase your risk of a heart attack and foods high in sodium can lead to high blood pressure. So try my healthy eggplantastic version instead!
