Starbucks Savvy

Did you know that a large mocha at Starbucks contains about 400 calories?
Did you know that a fat-free, sugar-free vanilla or caramel latte contains less than 200?
I always got large mochas made with fat-free milk, until I went online to Starbucks' nutritional information website and realized that, even with the fat-free milk, I was still drinking almost 400 calories! Yikes! That's almost a meal!
So I switched to a "skinny vanilla latte". I still get a large, but now it's with both fat-free milk and sugar-free flavored syrup. I get the same size and same fulfillment with half the calories! Yippee!
Take a walk on the "skinny" side of the Starbucks menu. You won't ever go back!
