The 3 Healthiest Items to Order at Starbucks (Morning, Noon, or Night!)

Hello, lovelies!

We’d all like to prepare healthy meals at home each week, but it is not always possible with a busy schedule. My go-to coffee choice is Starbucks. I actually drafted this post while sipping an iced coffee at my local Starbucks after work. I often add a food item with my coffee. These items range from chocolate chip cookies to a cup of oatmeal. If you’re looking for the healthiest items to order from Starbucks while on-the-go, look no further!

1. Classic Whole Grain Oatmeal 

Oatmeal is a healthy option. It is also nourishing and filling. Starbucks’ whole grain oatmeal contains just 160 calories, and 2.5 g of fat. Oatmeal is rich in fibre and other important minerals (e.g. magnesium, mangese, zinc)). These minerals support a healthy digestive and immune system. Starbucks’ classic oatmeal also contains nuts and berries for additional nutrients.

2. Basic coffee 

Stick to the basics when ordering your coffee. Coffee or espresso-based drinks like lattes, or blonde/dark roast coffees are light options. These options are low in sugar and extra calories. Asking for your coffee iced lightens it even more. A good rule of thumb is to skip sugary drinks like Frappuccinos. I’ve tried just about every drink on the menu. My main coffee order is now pared down to a Blonde roast coffee or iced latte.

3. Protein Bistro Box 

A bistro box contains the following items:

  • Hardboiled egg
  • Apple slices
  • Grapes
  • Peanut butter
  • White cheddar cheese
  • Muesli bread

This is a great option for breakfast or as a post-workout snack. It contains 15 grams of protein and 360 calories. A bistro box is healthy and portable. I often eat half in the morning then save the rest as an afternoon snack. The combination of fruit, grains, and protein keeps you full and satisfied until lunch.

What Starbucks drink or food item do you order?

  1. I love just a basic coffee with milk or half and half. I always love their bacon & gouda breakfast sandwich too! If I’m feeling crazy I get the chocolate croissant omg so good. Lol speaking of sugar , I completely agree with the no frap rule — literally no nutrition! This was a creative post :))
