So far my April "challenge" is off to a good start. I just want to quickly answer or clarify a couple things first.....
- I am not giving up coffee completely. It keeps me sane with the industry I work in, okay?!
- I am mostly giving up beer and soda (empty calories), sorry Stephen, and incorporating more healthy choices.
- The big focus is eating right, getting enough sleep, and lots of water. Smart training should fall into place when those things are in check.
Oh how I love thee coffee!
I always knew that the coffee drink I order from Caribou Coffee, the Caramel High Rise, isn't the healthiest. I mean, really, can something so good be so good for you! Probably Not.
I also like the Caramel Lattes, but not as much as my Caramel High Rise. So I was looking at their website a bit more and compared the two drinks in the chart below.
|---||Caramel High Rise||Caramel Latte|
|Total Fat (g)||11.5||0.5|
|Saturated Fat (g)||7.0||0.0|
|Trans Fat (g)||0.0||0.0|
|Total Carbohydrates (g)||42.0||12.0|
|Vitamin A (%DV)||8.0||0.0|
|Vitamin C (%DV)||6.0||4.0|

Just another reminder to myself why I need to cut back. And maybe just stick mostly with my coffee at home....French Vanilla by Dunkin' Donuts with fat free creamer.
Do you drink coffee? What kind do you like? Black? Lattes? Frozen drinks?
