McDonald's Wholesome Choices BloggerMy husband and I were talking about the ‘McDonald’s Wholesome Chocies‘ blogger event I went to a few days ago with special guest Andrea Riggs from Get Body Beautiful, when my son overheard us and asked “what does wholesome mean“?  I had him look up the definition on my iPhone.  According to Merriam-Webster the definition of wholesome is ‘promoting health or well-being of mind or spirit‘.  So wholesome doesn’t mean perfect?, he asked.  “No” I said.. when you say you are trying to be wholesome, then you are making an effort to promote the health of your body, mind, and spirit through exercise, food, and other things like laughter.

So back to what I was talking to my husband about..  I am partnering with McDonald’s on their Wholesome Choices Blogger Program.  Over the next few weeks I will be sharing tips and ideas for making more wholesome choices in your every day life.   As a parent of two children and a business owner I am always searching for ways to be more relaxed, energetic, and for both my family and I to be more wholesome. Whether living a wholesome life is through exercise, laughing together, or eating more better, wholesomeness can be achieved in many different ways.  Through this ‘challenge’, I have committed to losing one dress size by making more wholesome choices.  Not just food choices but with exercise as well.

Let McDonald’s help your family make better food choices when you are on the go.  Through the McDonald’s “Made For You” cooking system, you can special order various menu items to help meet your nutritional needs. A range of serving sizes make it easy to create meal combinations that work for you and your family.  The calorie count in McDonald’s newer menu items may be reduced by lessening the portion size, among other ways.  McDonald’s offers a variety of whole-grain oatmeal choices on the breakfast menu which are available all day. The Fruit & Maple Oatmeal and the Apple Cinnamon Walnut Oatmeal are both 100% natural whole grain oats, rich in fiber.
