McDonald’s Sausage Burrito 25 Net CarbsMcDonald’s Sausage Burrito

While being trapped in a car for hours, heading towards your destination, you don't have a lot of low carb things to choose from. Like the early episodes in a season of American Idol, sometimes you need to pick the not-so-bad option from a sea of terrible options.

Enter these sausage burritos.

They're cheesy, meaty and have a dose of veggies in there somewhere. By most standard they're delicious, easy to eat with one hand (so you can keep driving) and don't have THAT many carbs (for fast food). This is probably the thing I get most when stopping under the golden arches.

McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin® 27 Net CarbsMcDonald’s Sausage McMuffin®

If you are a simple person looking for some simple low carb McDonalds breakfast food... maybe a breakfast sandwich... then the McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin® isn't a terrible option. WIth only 27 Net Carbs it only has three things... sausage, cheese and English muffin. See, it's very simple and very tasty. However, you'll want to make sure you chug some water after because there is 760mg of salt in this bad boy.... that's about 1/3 of your recommended salt intake for that day. #saltkills

McDonald’s Egg McMuffin® 28 Net CarbsMcDonald’s Egg McMuffin®

Considering this sandwich has less Net Carbs (this sandwich has 28) than "Fruit & Maple Oatmeal" (62) and even their healthy-looking "Fruit-N-Yogurt Parfait" (30)... this low carb McDonalds breakfast sandwich seems like a great option. It's even got all the major food groups that a modern-day American commuter cares about... meat, cheese, egg and bread. Flush that down the hatch with an ice-cold Orange Juice and you, my friend, are living the American Dream!

McDonald’s Big Breakfast® with Hotcakes 149 Net CarbsMcDonald’s Big Breakfast® with Hotcakes

This styrofoam tray has a little bit of everything that's delicious in the world. Within it's thin, flexible walls lives a scoop of scrambled eggs, a savory sausage patty, crispy hash brown, a buttery biscuit and fluffy pancakes with melted butter and maple syrup.

Gawd... even writing that previous sentence felt good.

Don't get me wrong... I LOVE THIS. This food TASTES amazing... but this website is all about carbs and this breakfast monstrosity (that you'll probably eat sitting in rush hour traffic while balancing the tray on your expanding thighs) has ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTY NINE (149) Net Carbs! That is definitely not a low carb McDonald's breakfast food!

As of this writing... this is the highest number of carbs we have ever recorded! Congratulations McDonalds!

I just realized that McDonalds serves Breakfast all day.... where's my car keys?
