What do I order from McDonalds if I have diabetes?
Fast food is sometimes necessary. It could be a road trip, a busy day of work or running errands, or maybe it just sounds good. Regardless of the reason, if you have diabetes, food choices become more complicated. Will this affect my blood sugar? What can I order that won’t cause a spike?
To make things even more complicated, McDonalds dropped several of their seemingly “healthier” choices last year! In order to simplify the menu, no longer can you get salad, a snack wrap, or a grilled chicken sandwich. Ok then, well what does that leave us with? There are still choices that you can order at McDonalds for diabetes and blood sugar management.
