If you’re like most people, then I’m sure you have those mornings where time seems to be working against you…
So to make up for the delay, you end up skipping your regularly planned breakfast and opt for coffee & a quick "snack" from Dunkin' Donuts to gobble down on your commute to work.
To most folks on a rushed morning commute, an "iced coffee" is just "iced coffee." And a low-fat muffin would obviously be better as a light snack compared to a bacon 🥓, egg 🍳, and cheese 🧀 wrap, right?
As you can see, though, that ain't the case here...
Most people wouldn't think twice about adding a vanilla swirl flavor shot to their iced coffee — it's not "cream & sugar”. But it's basically the same, if not worse, and adds a whopping ~200 calories to your morning coffee! ☕️🙀
Then there's the (seemingly) harmless low-fat blueberry muffin. The "low-fat" label might make it seem like this is a light ’n’ healthy breakfast snack, but in reality, it's packed with ~410 calories! (but hey, only 11g of fat! 😜)
HERE'S YOUR FIX ✅: order the iced coffee with skim milk & Splenda. You'll still get a sorta-creamy coffee drink but for 1/4th the calories. Despite having bacon and cheese, the Wake Up Wrap is actually a stellar option for breakfast on-the-go. Not only is it low in calories (~190), but opposite of the muffin, it has a decent chunk of protein that will help keep you full 😋👍

That cold winter breeze is in the air and I'm loving it (personally). To me, there is nothing better than waking up and putting soup in the crockpot, cuddling under blankets while you watch Netflix, and enjoying the candles flickering and the occasional cold breeze.
This time of year is so beautiful to me, and it always is in this time of year that I sit back and find myself in times of personal reflection. Reflecting on life, what I can improve, and how I can become a better me.
What's your favorite time of year? Is it the warm spring? The blazing hot summer? The cool fall? The chilly winter?
No matter what season is your favorite, every season has its perks.
So now while my candles flicker and I knit, with headphones in and greys anatomy on, I'm going to enjoy this chilly season for what it is. I encourage you to do the same!
Comment below and let me know what your favorite season is, and why!
There is a custom in Naples called Caffè Sospeso where someone who has experienced good luck would order a sospeso, paying the price of two coffees but receiving and consuming only one. A poor person enquiring later whether there was a sospeso available would then be served a coffee for free. ☕️
