MCDONALD'S OFFERS THE MOST REASONABLE BREAKFAST SELECTION FOR VEGETARIANS

In a recent issue of Vegetarian Journal, Reed Mangels, Ph.D., R.D. evaluated meals for vegetarians at fast food restaurants. For breakfast, McDonald's offers the most reasonable selection.

Vegetarians who use dairy products and eggs could have a Fat Free Apple Bran Muffin, Cheerios, and eight ounces of 1% milk for 340 calories and 3.5 grams of fat. Compare this with other chains' hash browns which provide more than 200 calories and 11 or 12 grams of fat in a serving.

Vegans (who consume no animal products) can choose a serving of Cheerios, 12 ounces of orange juice (pour some on your cereal if you don't use milk), and an English muffin and jelly. This provides 410 calories and only three grams of fat.

To receive the two page Guide to Fast Food and a sample copy of Vegetarian Journal, send $3 to The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203.

The Vegetarian Resource Group is a non-profit organization which educates the public about vegetarianism (abstinence of meat, fish, and fowl). Vegans are vegetarians who do not consume other animal products such as dairy or eggs. For more information on vegetarianism, check out the VRG web site: http://vrg.org
