In my previous post, I wrote about the McDonald’s First Taste event I attended where I sampled their Fruit and Maple Oatmeal and spoke with McDonald’s Senior Director of Nutrition about the new food item. In just a few weeks, the Fruit and Maple Oatmeal will be available across the country (beginning January 3, 2011). It will be available all day long for $1.99 (but, prices may vary depending on location).
At the event, I also had the pleasure of chatting with event hosts, Jeannie Mai, host of Style Network’s “How Do I Look”, and Laura Posada, author of “Fit Home Team”. They shared with me some tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle and we chatted about favorite food, restaurants, and tasty recipes.
I didn’t get the chance to speak with style and fashion maven, Bevy Smith, but she looks like a cool lady. She styled the models that were handing out the food samples, with the latest fashions from H & M.

Laura Posada Talks ‘Fit Home Team’ Nutrition Guide
The event was wonderful and the conversations were lots of fun. The oatmeal was tasty and very satisfying. I left the event with a happy tummy and an exciting eco-friendly bag filled with goodies. The goodies included a cozy fleece throw, a cute McCafe ornament, a McD scarf, pen, USB, copy of Laura Posada’s book, Fit Home Team, and a couple of gift cards.
