Happy Tuesday all! It is awesome to see so many of you excited about Getting Fit with my Eat Smart Get Fit Giveaway….You all are so inspirational with all the reasons you list for why you want to win.
I am not sure if I ever told you all, but, it was my hairdresser who introduced me to Dirty Lattes. Last week when we were chatting it up and talking about different ideas for things to order at Starbuck’s, a Dirty Americano came up.
I was telling her how I go for Iced Americano’s or Coffees when I want to save on points+ versus having my Iced Dirty Latte……and then, it hit me.
Why not order a Dirty Americano?! I mean, how FUN is that to say LOL and it is even less points+ than a Dirty Latte.
Venti Iced Dirty Americano = Iced Americano (espresso & water) with 2 pumps Mocha for….drumroll…..only 1 points+. I added a splash of half & half for another 1 points+.
It was delicious and although I cannot check off a dairy, it’s my favorite new thing. I can’t wait for coconut to come out again!
Paired with a little protein (Morning Star Veggie Sausage ~ 2 points+) and a banana.
I have declared this week MY WEEK at our Café because every single day they have a new Burger Salad!!! Once I saw that on our weekly menu, I completely abandoned all plans for bringing lunch…..I mean ~ look at how delicious burger salads can be!
The Salad ~ Salad as my co-worker called it a.k.a. Veggie Burger Salad.
