How many of you find yourself craving the sweet, cold yumminess of a Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino during the week? Today, my breakfast was a cookie bake shake....sooo deelish! Check out the comparison of the regular java chip frapp, the "skinny" frapp and the cookie bake shake! Starbuck's "skinny" version still has 36 grams of sugar! To give you some perspective, a package of Reeses PB cups has 21g of sugar, a Snickers bar...27g of sugar.....how the heck can Starbucks get away with calling it "light"?!! I would never encourage you to eat a candy bar for breakfast, but if you're trying decide betwwen a skinny frap and a candy bar....nutritionally, the candy bar wins.
I am by no means a chef or a magical food creater, but I do a spend a lot of time collecting recipes for my clients and enjoy sharing them here. If I know the original source, I will always post it at the bottom of the recipe. On occasion I will will have a genius thought and blog those if I think they may touch someone's life and help them move to a more positive, healthy space. Enjoy!
