When Twin Cities Live contacted Dietitian Cassie about doing a segment on fast food breakfasts, she knew she was going to be totally out of her element in the drive thru lane. Steve Patterson, co-host of TCL, takes Cassie hostage in a segment they call “The Dude and the Dietitian” and puts her on the spot in both a McDonald’s and a Taco Bell drive thru, and she does the best she can to create PFC balanced morning meals on the go.
When they return to the studio, Cassie brings some real food examples of quick and easy breakfasts that are better than the drive thru options, including a yogurt parfait made with berries, nuts and protein powder, as well as our awesome Egg Bake that she makes every week for her own breakfasts! Check out the video below to see how she tackles the drive thru lane, and find some tips that will help you approach it (or better yet, avoid fast food altogether!)!
