How to order smart at Starucks the low calorie way.
However if you are limiting your calorie intake you may feel leary visiting your favorite coffeehouse. Have no fear, you can still order from Starbucks feeling guiltless. There are other options to choose from. Here are a few low-calorie drinks to consider.
Smarter ways to order.
-Ask for 2% milk, lowfat or non-fat milk
-Add soy instead of milk. Why soy? Soy contains fiber and protein. It also does not contain bad chloesterol.
-Skip the larger sizes. Order "Tall" drinks instead.
-Ask for sugar-free syrup or ask about other smarter options to have your drink sweetened.
Order plain coffee with no added sugar or substitutes. I know it sounds boring but this will help shave off calories and the sugar intake.
Here are some ideas of what to order and how many calories they contain.
-Nonfat Capppucino - 60 calories
-Caffe Americano - 10 calories
-Nonfat Caramel Macchiato - 140 calories
-Latte's are excellent choices for a low calorie expresso drink. Starbucks offer "skinny" lattes. What is skinny? No whip, non-fat milk and sugar-free.
