What Food Do You Wish McDonalds had on their menu?

I have such a hard time eating well when I go out. I wish I could get a plate of rice and beans with a side of some veggie at McDonalds. Something like that. If they have breakfast burritos, why not rice and beans? Or McFalafel?

I could go for skewers of bite-sized, grilled 'McVeggies' - 4 sticks to a fry-sized box, seasoned and easy to eat in the car. I'm a little sick of salads as the only alternative to fries.

Spinach salad with some chick peas, broccoli, avocado and chicken. And some tasty sugar free tea. If Starbucks can sell piles of tea, so can McDonalds. Green tea, lime tea, earl grey. Think outside the bun!

Here here!

Need some veggies on their menu, and sugarless drinks that rock, bean dishes, veggie burgers, etc. So sick of fast food places not getting it.

Beans and salsa would be extraordinary. How about steamed vegetables as a side dish? I second the chick peas with avocado, a three bean salad of sorts. Yum.

I like the idea fo the grilled skewers of veggies - with grilled chicken bites - that would be great! And a balck bean burger on a fast food menu would be tops!

It ain't gonna happen. No offense, but stop wishing and start doing.

If you are serious about what you put inside your bodies, if you are firm in meeting your health and fitness goals, then you shouldn't be wishing or relying on something like a fast food franchise to assist you. Honestly, a big part of why I was feeling so run down and why I now dedicate time to hit the gym is because I justified eating junk with not having enough time in my day.

The reason fast food chains do not serve these types of food is because of cost. Healthy, live foods have a shelf life far lesser than say, A grade B frozen beef pattie. They serve salads because they are cheap. Tomatoes, are a pretty staple item at burger joints, so there is no loss there. You might see a cucumber every once in awhile or some shredded carrot if the salads are pre-pack. Fast food joints are just that, why wish for more...

Most all deli's offer veggie and lean meat sandwich varieties and a lot of them offer a pretty healthy soup of the day. Subway has a 6g of fat and less menu also. Grocery deli's have tabouli salads, multi-bean salads, tahini, hummus, veggie burgers and many other high protein, lower fat foods.

Once you really get into your groove, you will find you want to prepare most of your meals so you know exactly what is in them. Also, in time with healthy exercise, you tend to have more energy...no matter how long your days tend to be. With that new found energy, you can plan your weekly meals and actually have good quality family time preparing the dishes for the week.

And I concur , the smell of McD's is quite disgusting!

No one can fix you but you.

i don't eat at mcdonalds mostly because they don't offer anything i would ever eat. i thought the question was aimed at anyone, not just those who actually eat there. if they offered something like a 3-bean salad, i would not trust that the oil and salt used to mass-produce the salad were healthy choices. too bad Boca-Burger doesn't open a fast-veggie-food chain! they would hit it big!
