I’m actually sitting in starbucks enjoying my usual as I type this blog 😛
Aside from being hard on the wallet, drinking starbucks can be taxing to your health if you don’t know what you’re doing. Here are a few healthy tips for ordering at starbucks:
1) don’t get fancy. the lowest cal, fat and sugar drinks are regular brewed and iced coffees and regular teas.
2) use a little half and half. it’s only 40 calories/serving and it provides creaminess without adding excessive amounts of sugar or calories.
3) go sugar free. i’m not claiming that artificial sugars are good for you, but i believe one packet of splenda is better for your overall well being than a pump of classic sweetener. when opting for sugar substitutes, choose the green packet first (stevia, available in more and more spots now a days), then yellow (splenda), then pink (sweet n low), and avoid blue at all costs its toxic.
4) go medium….or grande. no one needs 20 oz of caffeine at once.
hope this was helpful.
until next time babes 🙂
