My favorite Breakfast Meals on the Go at Starbucks

new-starbucks-logoI travel a lot. I’m at airports, hotels, in the car and often in small towns and it’s hard to find food that I’m willing to eat. Before when I would grab breakfast on the go, it was a diet disaster: nothing but fat-and-calorie bombs like butter-soaked croissants and jumbo muffins. Now, it’s much easier to do right by your body by knowing your better options. Here are my top choices for yummy eats on the go at Starbucks:

 Starbuck’s Bistro Boxes

An example is the Vegetable medley served with goat cheese, tzatziki dip and cranberry almond crackers.

These are great choices when you are on the go and they will really fill you up and help you battle the bulge! Remember to stay away from the coffee cakes, muffins, and bagels and if you drink coffee make sure you don’t splurge on fancy coffee drinks that are loaded with sugar, fat and empty calories! Eat those nutrient-rich calories to keep you satisfied.
