Ordering ‘healthy’ at Starbucks… and a spring funny

I have a minor addiction to some things that aren’t necessarily ‘healthy’ ~ Starbucks coffee drinks and chocolate being at the top of the list.  I’m a firm believer in EVERYTHING IN MODERATION, so I allow myself to indulge every now and then!

Here are some tips for ordering ‘healthy’ at Starbucks… Screen Shot 2014-03-27 at 11.51.13 AM

  • Get less ‘pumps’ – a grande latte has FOUR pumps of sweetener!  That sugary deliciousness is not needed.  I’ve gotten down to ONE pump and still enjoy the flavor.  I don’t like the taste of the ‘artificial’ skinny flavors, so I do the real deal.  My favorite go-to order is a grande, non-fat, half-caff, one pump caramel latte.  You can try ‘skinny’ if you’re able to!
  • Go non-fat. Saves calories and fat.
  • Get decaf or half-caff.  Caffeine can dehydrate you. Pair it with a large water for added hydration benefits.
  • Get a regular coffee or [unsweetened] tea.  They will save you money and calories!

 

 

 

On a side note, my aunt sent us this funny today.  I literally laughed out loud, so hope you enjoy a smile too!  Notice how stylish this little birdie is with his Starbucks & Northface?  All this little birdie wants is some SPRING weather!
