Rethink your drink

I don't know if you have all heard me rant about my absolute love for coffee. I don't think I am someone who necessarily NEEDS it, but I truly enjoy a nice warm cup o joe <3. I noticed many people who order drinks at major coffee companies tend to get what tastes the best, I mean who doesn't want a nice yummy sugary drink? The downside is the HIGH amount of calories, fat, and sugar in these drinks. Sometimes I don't think people realize exactly how many calories they are ingesting in just one small drink. Here are little tips to think about before your next trip to the coffee shop.

This white chocolate mocha has more sugar than you should have in a whole day. If you were thinking to have any fruit, or any dairy later in the day you have already exceeded the DRA (daily recommended allowance). For UNDER 470 calories you can have a BUNCH more that will satisfy your body and give it the nutrients it needs. You can enjoy 1/2 c. oatmeal(140) a banana(105) a nonfat yogurt(80) AND a skinny latte(130). ALL of these add up to ONLY 455 calories! Instead of starting your morning off with something high in calories and lacking nutrients, opt for a healthier choice.
