#Coffee, the elixir of life. It wakes you up in the #morning, picks you up in the afternoon & if you’re into nightcaps, #decaf is always an option. Cup after cup adds up calorically but there are ways to modify your coffee order to make them guilt free.
Coffee makes the world go round. Whether you’re into straight espresso, vanilla lattes, frappuccinos, or any other variation of the stuff, most people indulge in some form of the beverage. Quitting isn’t an option, so here are some tips for making the most (or least?) of your orders:
1. Go for the smaller size: I know, the small one is too small and the big one is too big. You might as well pay the 75 cents for twice as much coffee, right? Wrong. The more you purchase the more you consume, so choose moderation over making the most of your change.
2. Be a minimalist: do you really need the whipped cream, or the whole milk, or the sugar-ridden syrups? Opt for less toppings, non-fat (or almond!) milk, and sugar-free syrups instead. They exist, you just have to ask.
3. Stick to the basics: while those frappuccinos are tempting, they verge more on dessert than they do coffee. Get straight to the point and stick with basic drinks + minimal ingredients: cappuccinos, americanos, cold brews, espresso. More caffeine, less calories!
Whether you’re ordering out or brewing your own latte, keep these tips in mind to make the most of your morning cup.
