Mark Bittman’s article in the NYT Opinionater this week reveals the dark side of McDonalds’ “healthy” choice. I bring this up not only because the article is a valuable resource for clients – including recipes for DIY oatmeal and the eye-popping fact that McD’s oatmeal has only 10 fewer calories than an Egg McMuffin or a cheeseburger – but also as a reminder to ask for more information when a client reports what he or she ate for breakfast.
