Breakfast at STARBUCKS?

It is an early Monday morning, and you cannot wait to taste the delicious White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino. Your mind can clearly picture the rich cream on top of the sweet crushed ice and your teeth cannot wait any longer to bite to the well-baked Walnut Bran Muffin. Indeed, you need the sugar to power up your morning and get ready for the long stressful day, don’t you? Well, you can still enjoy the sweetness of Starbucks, with fewer calories:

Eat THIS: Grande Vanilla Late with Black Forest Ham, Egg, and Cheddar Breakfast. The Math: calories: 630 ( 250 for drink)

73 grams carbohydrates
22 grams ( 12 g saturated)

Not THAT: Grande White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino with Walnut Bran Muffin; The Math: 900 calories (410 for drink, you get to be kidding!!!)
15 grams of protein
120 grams carbohydrates
35 grams of fat ( 12 grams of saturated)
6 grams of fiber

PS: The harmless looking muffin is filled with more fat and 110 more calories than the breakfast sandwich.
