First National Breakfast Day

That will be 2 more days before we celebrate the very first National Breakfast Day. In celebration of this day, McDonalds will give its loyal customers a treat and that will be...

FREE McMUFFIN for the first 1000 customers per McDonald's Store
Isn't that great? No need to make a purchase. All you have to do is simply walk-in to the nearest McDonald's store between 5am to 9am to get your free McMuffin! Be sure to be the first one thousand customers!

It is a common knowledge that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but a lot of people are skipping breakfast especially when they are in a hurry or on a diet. I am guilty of this habit before but not now as I read in Patty Laurel's blog that breakfast eaters tend to weigh less than the breakfast skipper. How or Why? "One theory suggests that eating a healthy breakfast can reduce hunger throughout the day, and help people make better food choices at other meals. While it might seem you could save calories by skipping breakfast, this is not an effective strategy. Typically, hunger gets the best of breakfast-skippers, and they eat more at lunch and throughout the day." - WebMD

So there, that's a piece of info that is stuck in my mind. Now I know why I always end up hungry when I'm only having a cereal drink in the mornings. Most likely, this is the reason why we have a National Breakfast Day is to promote to every Filipinos the importance of having breakfast meal.

Make it a habit to have a heavy breakfast. I  tried having one the other day and I still feel full during lunch time thus I only ate a bagel and some pineapple courtesy of my office mate. Wink! Hopefully I can continue this healthy eating throughout the whole year.

Don't forget to mark your calendars, March 18 for Free McMuffin! For more information, visit or the official McDonald’s Facebook fan page, . You can also share your excitement on Twitter by using the official hashtag, #nationalbreakfastday.

This is the first ever yet I missed it! I wasn't able to wake up that early to grab some free mcmuffins!

Anyway, at least, I tried setting the alarm.

Thanks for this post I'll bookmark this so it would remind me of the next free breakfast from Mcdo!

Yeah I missed this as well since I took a half-day and have to go to work at noon.

Well, let's just wait for another National Breakfast Day ;)
