Indulging a Seasonal Guilty Pleasure – The McRib
Oh yeah. The McRib is back baby. And I’m having one RIGHT NOW.
I have very few guilty pleasures… Desperate Housewives. Millionaire Matchmaker. Vodka. But the McRib is near the top of the list. Honestly, I don’t know how I resisted this long. I’ve been busy I guess – lots going on.
To help emphasize what a big deal this is, I normally stick to about 300-400 calories for lunch. Period. Usually sushi, or a rice bowl with a diet soda, water or some other lowcal beverage (the beverages kill you). But today – oh today – I’m indulging in a full 880 calories.
- McRib: 500 calories*
- Medium Fries: 380 Calories*
- Diet Dr. Pepper: 0 Calories
That’s 1/2 the calories I allow myself per day (trying to lose weight responsibly). But oh so worth it. The tangy sauce. The scattered onions. The meat patty with bone imprint but no bones. Da-lish! No moral lesson here. Just me raving about the McRib. Yum!
