KOOKY: "Tall, no-whip hot chocolate"
"Tall, no-whip hot chocolate"
This is what I always order when I go to Starbucks. Lately, however, I've been going there a lot, and have been noticing that I've been gaining a bit of weight. Not much, but when your 5'2" and petite, you notice.
So I looked up the Nutritional Facts on the Starbucks website.
Total Fat: 11g
My daily intake of calories should be about 1000-1200, and my daily fat intake should be around 24g. Not the end of the world, but extra calories I can do without.
I get hot chocolate for one of two reasons:
1) I need a chocolate fix
2) I need to wake myself up (I don't drink coffee, so this is my new stimulant du jour)
I was very proud of myself when I decided to take a break this morning and went to the Starbucks with my co-worker. It's actually sunny today, so might as well enjoy the weather.
I did not get a hot chocolate. Yay me!
This is a big achievement, especially considering that there four (4) Starbucks within a five minute walking distance from my office. KOOKY, I tell ya.
However, I need my chocolate fix (especially now that I'm PMS-ing, bleh). So I went to the hospital cafeteria and got a chocolate milk. Now let's check out the Nutritional Fact:
Total Fat: 6g
Dammit, it doesn't look like I'm much more ahead. Bah. Well, at least my bones will thank me.
