Here is a cheap lunch tip: McDonald's has a $1 menu. Order a side salad, which is small, and the 4 piece chicken nuggets. Cut the nuggets into small pieces. All for only $2!
The salad is only 20 calories and the nuggets are l70. The least calorie dressings are: (if you used the entire package.) Low fat Italian is 50 calories, Low fat Balsamic is 40 calories and Ranch is 170 calories.
Then if you are a "senior". you get a "senior" drink for 49 cents with refills.
I work at a McDonald's and this is what I do for lunch--I order the side salad and have them add a grilled chicken patty (the kind you get in the BLT, Club or Classic sandwich) on top. The chicken breast is only $1.00, and I order a small drink (free refills), bringing the total to $3! The grilled chicken breast is 150 calories, 20 calories less than the 4 piece McNuggets and much more meat (IMHO).
Regardless of what anybody says, that Dollar Menu has kept me and my youngest son from going hungry a few times!! Plus it tastes good too. Too bad they took off the double meat cheeseburger. Most idiotic I say!!
