Don’t let your diet keep you from your morning coffee run! Though there have long been conflicting theories on the health benefits of coffee, some of us just can’t seem to say no.
Coffee, specifically, is my drug of choice (me and millions of other Americans each and every day). And though the encompassing scent of freshly brewed coffee and the warm ambiance of a Starbucks cafe is most welcoming, the calories in the drinks aren’t always as such.
Your healthy lifestyle is consistent every time you walk into a coffee shop- though it’s tempting as ever to spring for the new large, chocolate chip, caramel, marshmallow, swirl iced frappe thingy, you may now get sucked into this purchase each time you go.
What people can do to avoid this habit from occurring is to plan! Do some research on the shop before you go and find a drink that isn’t going to take over half of your calorie intake for the day- it’s possible! Once you find your perfect, not-unhealthy drink of choice, you’ll be set.
You can also make simple, small changes in your order to make it healthier. Instead of a regular iced mocha, try getting it skinny (made with skim milk rather than whole). Another small change is to use sugar free syrup instead of the regular, sugar-filled kind. It’s THAT easy and I swear, it tastes just as good once you get used to it.
What change can YOU make to your coffee order today? I ordered my vanilla latte skinny today, what did you do?
