Obviously, most people aren’t thinking “healthy” when they think of Starbucks, but one thing I know for sure is that their customer service is exceptional(in my personal experience).  How that customer service helps you, is all in what you ask for. If they can make it specific to your needs, they will(this is not an ad for Starbucks either by the way)!

Here’s what I ask for, when I’m looking for a cold, refreshing drink, on a h...

I hear it all the time. 

"I eat my salads with just a sprinkle of lemon juice, because salad dressing is so bad for us". 

"I ask for my dressing on the side because it's too many calories".  

Food is supposed to be for nourishment, but what we often forget is that food is supposed to taste good and be enjoyed too!  

What if I told you that salad dressing CAN be healthy? 

What if your salad dressing tasted so good that you...

Okay, so you guys know I’m as much of a Starbucks fan as the next person, but if there’s a healthier version I can make at home, I’ll opt for that and save the Starbucks visits for those once in a while occasions.  Many people don’t know that the classic Starbucks version of the Pumpkin Spice Latte(PSL) is not dairy-free, as there is powdered dairy in the mix itself.  And it’s definitely not sugar-free. So whenever I do get on...

Okay, kudos to you if you do actually drink your coffee black, but if you’re only doing it because it’s “healthier’ and you’re choking it down, I have good news for you!  Again, we come back to the fact that oil doesn’t breakdown into sugar, so when we add it to our foods or drinks, ithe body doesn't need to produce insulin to process and metabolize it.  And so, we come to the trend of adding oil to your coffee(specifically co...

If you're applying your dressing sparingly or only using half the dressing that comes with a store-bought salad, then you have the WRONG kind of dressing!  I always hear people say "oh, the dressing is where all the calories are, so I only use half" or even worse, they're skipping the dressing all together. I'm here to spread the word and shout it from the rooftops that salad dressing CAN be HEALTHY! When we use the right oils...
