A new apprecation for latte
This weigh in this week was nothing special in fact I gained 0.8 pounds. I knew that a gain was coming because my history says that usually about every 4-5 weeks I gain weight. Plus, I knew I'd been eating like crazy last week. In fact, I even ate half of the activity points I earned last week. Anyway, I knew it was coming and it was slightly disappointing but expected. So, moving on...
At the meeting we were talking about places that we liked to go when we decided to dine out. There were a lot of great restaurants put out there like Panera Bread, Diced (one of my favorites thanks to my friend Judy), Panda Express (they apparently have healthy options). I said Starbuck's because I love me a nice Skinny Cinnamon Dulce Latte or a Skinny Vanilla Latte. At which point Karen mentioned that the latte satisfied the good health guidelines for dairy. Uh... hold the phone... what? Yes, it's true, it contains about 1 1/2 cups of milk which is more then enough to satisfy the daily requirements. Oh hells yes! I will never again think twice about the latte again knowing that it helps me get in one of the good health guidelines that I so often forget about.
What about you? Have you found out that your favorite indulgence is really good for you?
