I don't do the lattes, but an Americano and with "pumpkin spice."
How "bad" do you think this is? I'm eating 90% paleo and very active, but for fat loss, would this prove to be a bad idea?
Stay away! I thought I would treat myself to one after being pretty strict for a few months and it tasted NOTHING like I remembered. I think I drank maybe a 1/4 of it and then threw the rest down the drain because it was way too sweet and not the version of "pumpkin" that I wanted!
They are really high in sugar! This recipe may be a healthier option. I wouldn't say it's paleo but it's definitely a better way to splurge! Hope you enjoy!
Up to you. A medium drink has 380 calories, which could put you in excess depending on your diet. http://www.starbucks.com/menu/drinks/espresso/pumpkin-spice-latte#size=183887&milk=63&whip=125
You would be surprised how little of the pumpkin spice you'll need, having been paleo...try 1/2 pump of syrup in a tall and see if that does it for you. If so, I'd say no big deal at all (since three pumps would typically go into the tall latte version).
Healthy or not, don't you have any non-corporate coffee shops you could support? With today's legislation Starbuck's, just like any other national chain, is abusing tax privileges to literally steal from us working folks.
I swear our entire economic environment is one giant Stockholm Syndrome...
