Why I love the new Chicken Sausage from McDonalds and a $25 McDonalds GC Giveaway!

I was compensated by McDonald’s in exchange for posting. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.

A healthy lifestyle can help you feel better, look better, and live better. When you live a healthy lifestyle, everything else in your life improves, as well. It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself. My family has adopted a few simple changes that help us live a healthier lifestyle for today, tomorrow, and forever.unnamed-9

Simple Steps to a Healthy Lifestyle

All it takes are a few small changes to your life to help get you on the road to being healthier today. These simple steps are painless and easy to do, and as we all know, those are the kinds of changes that we’re more apt to stick to.

Drink More Water

If you’re anything like me, you don’t drink nearly enough water. I’ll be the first to admit that I need improvement in this department. Because I’m trying to drink more water, my husband decided that he should, as well, and that we should encourage the kids to drink more water, too. After all a properly hydrated body is a healthy body.


Movement is key to a healthy lifestyle, and the more movement the better. I’ve been doing this for a while. I picked up running again, and I’ve been feeling great. I’ve even gotten my husband in on the act. Even the kids are getting excited about exercise. I make sure they get in an hour of physical play every day before going to a movie or their learning apps. While you may not be a runner, even a walk is a step in the right direction. If you have a treadmill, get on it and just walk for a 1/2 hour. Or go for a walk outside. You can build from there to walking longer and even running if you choose. Whatever you do, any movement is good for your body and key to a healthier life.

More Veggies

Eat veggies, veggies, and more veggies. They’re essential to a healthy lifestyle. Vegetables are chock full of important vitamins and minerals, and fibrous veggies are good for digestion. Aim for half your plate to be filled with vegetables at every meal. Pro tip: Stay away from corn. Corn is just little yellow starch nibblets. Instead, choose vegetables like carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes. They’re delicious, and they’re very good for you. If you have a picky eater, throw a little cheese sauce on top. It’s easy to make, and it tends to get even the pickiest eater excited about their veggies. Not too much cheese, though. You’re aiming for a healthy lifestyle. ;)

Lean Meats

Protein is important, and lean meats can give you all the protein you need without all the fat you don’t. Fish, chicken breast, pork, and very lean beef are all good protein sources to include in your healthy menu options.

Opt for Healthier Choices When Eating Out

A healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to suffer. Little changes, remember? When you eat out, only eat half the portion given to you. Opt for dishes that include lots of veggies and those lean proteins I mentioned earlier. For those times when you really need your fix, opt for a healthier version of your favorite treat.

I’m a big fan of McDonald’s sausage biscuits. I treat myself to them a couple of times a month. Now, when I treat myself, I can do it and still keep my healthy lifestyle going. Because now, they have a chicken sausage option. Yes! Chicken sausage. It’s great. It has all that great McDonald’s breakfast flavor that I love but with fewer calories and less fat. I’d call that a big win for me. Now I can have my cake – I mean sausage – and eat it, too. Yay!unnamed-8

A Healthy Lifestyle is All About Tweakingunnamed-5

Rather than going on some crazy crash diet or weird fad, just tweak out your own life for a healthy lifestyle. Drink more water, eat more veggies, and opt for healthier alternatives when you eat out. I know I’ll always be having the chicken sausage when I enjoy my McDonald’s sausage biscuit.unnamed-4

    I would like to see a fast food place that can make them appealing instead of HAVING to eat at home where I know I CAN. What a wonderful convenience this would be for us!

  2. ellen beck says

    I am excited about the new chicken sausage because really, breakfast at McDonalds is my favorite meal to eat there. I love their sausage McMuffins, and this chicken option would be healthier and I can have them more often!

  3. Amanda B says

    I don’t eat red meat, so the idea of still being able to have sausage and it being chicken really excites me.

  4. Cindy Merrill says

    Well, I’m just plain curious: I’ve never tried Chicken Sausage before. I think I’ll give McDonald’s a visit this weekend just to taste what the fuss is about.

  5. Tami Vollenweider says

    I just went their this past week-end and got the Egg White Mc Mcffin! I was surprised it was very good and filling. I’ve been trying to stay away from worse choices and the Chicken Sausage is something I would really love to try!!

  37. Michele P says

    I eat McDonald’s breakfast very often during the week as it is where I stop before I head in to the office. I’ve been eating their other healthier egg white delight McMuffin and love it, but I have to admit I love sausage as well so when I saw this option I definitely wanted to try it out since I enjoy eating at McD’s but want to make the choice to eat healthier.

  38. Dawn Monzu says
