Cheap, Nutritious McDonald’s Eats: $1 Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothies, BOGO Egg White Delights

Happy Monday, everyone!

It’s 80 degrees today in Philadelphia, and it finally feels like we’re in the final stretch towards summer. It’s graduation season, and with the end of another school year, lots of families are gearing up for summer vacations: long days at the pool and weeks at the beach. I can’t wait for my summer vacation and I’ve been ferociously couponing my hot weather wardrobe. I even used mobile coupons to score a completely free bikini! As you can tell, one of my chief aims in life is to look good and feel great without spending a lot of money. This applies to to what I put on my body as much as it applies to what I put in my body. I usually have way too much on my plate to actually cook meals during the week, so I rely heavily on convenience food and coffee pit stops. But, just because I’m busy, doesn’t mean I eat junk. We’re past the age when McDonald’s was to blame for your expanding wasteline; today, a fast food lunch will not only save you a ton of money (even more with coupons!) it can also save you a ton of calories – if you know what to order.

What’s on the healthy, delicious, frugal McDonald’s menu this week? Fruit smoothies and high-protein breakfast sandwiches!

This week, from May 21-23, McDonald’s is offering its brand new Blueberry Pomegranate smoothies for just $1.

A small smoothie will set you back just 220 calories and will fill you up (it has 3 grams of fiber) more than a sugary, junky soda.

You don’t need a coupon to take advantage of this deal, but if you want to make it a meal, make sure you SnipSnap this coupon for BOGO Egg White Delight McMuffin sandwiches:

I’m so excited about these new McMuffins; they’re a really great choice for a fast, delicious breakfast. With 18 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and just 7 grams of fat/250 calories, you’re not breaking the calorie bank first thing in the morning.
