The Big Wake Up With Don Chase and Sarah

Weekdays 6:00am-10am

Don’t you love it it when out of nowhere a nice surprise comes your way?  One came my way today. As you may know, since the end of January, I have eating much healthier. Some call it Keto, I am not sure. What I do know is that the scales are going down and that excites me. One of my favorite quickie foods is the sausage, egg & cheese McMuffin but without the muffin.  That’s right, no muffin. You should have seen the face of the Mickey D’s lady when I said I would like two McMuffins without the muffin. She then said, “sir, it wouldn’t be a McMuffin without the muffin. I agreed. To my surprise, a nearby manager knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it. Here I was thinking that in my mind, I had created the perfect low-carb, high-protein mini-meal.  I guess someone else had the idea. Now, here comes the great part. Over the past 3 months, I have been paying $6.00 for the 2 McMuffins. Today, I needed a pick-me-up so I hit the the Owen Drive drive-thru, placed my order, drove to the window to pay my tab and the young lady said, “good morning sir. That’s too much for your order.” She then said my total was $3.87.   I said, are you sure? She said yes. In the past, I have paid $6.00. Yaaay.  That young lady saved me $2.13. Awesomesauce. She then gave me the secret.  She said to order two round eggs and two sausage McMuffins with no muffin. Oh what a beautiful morning. Like you, I love saving moolah. Also, if you are cutting back on carbs, sugars and starches and increasing your protein and fats and have “secrets,” please share them. Thanks very much. Did I really say “awesomesauce?”
