Big’N’Tastey

Lets talk homemade breakfast versus ‘to-go’. We all know it’s better to make things at home, but how much healthier is it really? If you only look at calories, 410 vs 328 is less than 100 calorie difference! And when getting ready for work in the morning, odds are, the easiest option wins. 82 calories sounds like NBD at that moment, but is it? Decide for yourself, based on the northeast’s beloved Wawa Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sizzli versus my own “Bigg Egg n Turkey Bacon Breakfast” (descriptive, isn’t it?).
