Annoying!

So I went and got a Starbucks latte this morning and thought "i'll have it iced". I don't think i've had it iced before so adding that extra word through me off. Boy was it yummy!!!

I went and got another latter this afternoon to give me some energy for the gym later and as I was walking over there it dawned on me the last one I had was not made with skim but made with whole milk. F me. That is a difference of 100 calories and 10 grams of fat. I am so pissed. It's my own fault but it ticks me off! Only because I was in a hurry! Righttt!

Oh well, guess it would be same as having a 100 calorie cupcake pack, which actually would have tasted better!

Enough on that! It's really cold in here, I'm trying to figure something yummy for our last dinner together until next Tuesday. We had garlic cheese turkey burgers last night and pico de gallo on top of grilled chicken with cheese. Both of which were made with no help from myself. So me coming up with something is well a bit changeling! Any thoughts?

Anything good in your kitchen you want to use? I could send you a few recipes. Or...if you are in the mood for chicken (again) you could do a baked chicken with no-fat honey mustard. It's really simple. Coat the chicken breast with honey mustard (Grey Poupon honey mustard is yummy!) then lightly bread and bake. Pair it with spaghetti squash and some whole grain rice pilaf.
Yummy!

Ugh, whole milk is the worst! I read the other day that Starbucks is switching to using 2% milk as the standard in their drinks, which I think is such a good idea!

My Starbuck's doesn't have whole milk anymore, just 2% and skim. I think whole milk is so gross, it's like you can feel the fat in your mouth.

I think the tip from Future Mrs. S sounds really good! Pick up a copy of Everyday Food, there are always really tasty and simple recipes in that baby.

Thanks Libby! We tested it out the other night, it was delicious. You could even put a little salsa on the squash to add a little kick.

K, don't worry too much about the Starbucks--it was only one time. Plus, you probably burned some calories on your walk over there and back! That counts for something!

I hate when that happens and I always wonder if they are always using skim milk... I did hear that Starbuck's will start making all drinks with skim unless you ask for whole. That is the way it should be!

The calories and fat don't count if you didn't "know" about them...

Ha Kimba,
Last week I requested my favorite latte iced and loved it!
Not only that, a few weeks ago at a cafe, I got a latte only to realize I didn't say skim - arghh!
Feeling your latte factor. :)
