Trying to Get More Veggies in Your Diet?

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

We’re trying to increase the veggies we eat in our diet and 57% of Canadians feel the same way. Our friends at McDonald’s Canada are beginning to offer more meatless options with fresh veggies. We’re pretty stoked about two new Signature McWrap™ flavours - Mediterranean Veggie and Santa Fe Veggie ($4.39 each) made with whole wheat steamed tortillas. Perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.

The Mediterranean Veggie (top left) features roasted garlic hummus, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, shredded iceberg lettuce, lemon-seasoned crispy onions seasoned with lemon, and a creamy Mediterranean feta sauce.

The Santa Fe Veggie (top right) features fire-roasted corn, black beans, a blend of light cheddar and Monterey Jack, tomatoes, red onions, shredded iceberg lettuce and crunchy tri-colour tortilla strips are mixed with chili lime glaze and a Southwest sauce.

Now going meatless and getting more veggies when you’re on the go isn’t so limited and boring. Both Signature McWrap™ flavours are now available at your local McDonald’s

Trying to win friends with salad? Plain old oil & vinegar can get boring after a while which is why we asked Anne Parks, Director of Menu Management at McDonald’s Canada to share her favourite salad dressing recipes with us! Anne got her start at McDonald’s in 1978 when she started working behind the counter as a teenager. Thirty-five years later she grew her career from working at the store level to her current dream job where she gets to cook and eat for a living! Whip up a batch of her dressing at the start of the week to keep your salads inspired.

If you can shake a jar – you can make your own DIY Mason jar salad dressing. 

This recipe uses what you likely already have on hand at home and can be doubled or even tripled if you’re serving a crowd. Just make sure to keep refrigerated in an airtight container or in your mason jar. Just drizzle on your favourite salad and enjoy!
