This weekend I was with my Mom traveling to Auburn, AL to see my sister run track (she did awesome! ran 4:50-something for 1500!), and we tried some new wacky granola bar, trail mix, Starbucks and Haagen Daz. Oh yeah, and my Mom got pooped on by a bird!
If you like “chewy” organic bars (with little fiber and protein, mainly just straight carbs) then this product is for you. The texture is very chewy. They are good, but I prefer Kashi because I like more protein and more fiber (and less sugar) in my granola bars
My pick for Starbucks Sandwiches: the Chicken and Vegetable Wrap (under 530 mg sodium, 290 calories, 9g fat, 36g carbs, 4g fiber, 19g protein)
I also had an unsweetened iced green tea, and put my own sugar-free lemonade powder in it. It was delicious and refreshing! I would recommend getting regular unsweet black tea if you are not a fan of green tea because Starbucks green tea can be very bitter with a minty aftertaste.
Nutrition Facts for Chick-Fil-A Parfait: 180 calories, 3g fat (1.5g saturated), 37g carbohydrates (mostly milk sugars and fruit sugars so do not worry!), 6g protein, and 45% vitamin C!
My Mom tried this and absolutely loved it (and she is hard to please when it comes to yogurt and fruit). The strawberries were very fresh and tasty (not frozen or canned or anything!). She got this instead of food from Starbucks (I don’t blame her! Chick-Fil-A wins!).
And if you are very calorie conscious, you could leave out the granola they give you and just eat the yogurt and fruit (this will save a couple calories, and bring you down to almost 100 calories for the cup).
Of course I must offer all my readers a healthy alternative: Starbucks Lowfat Latte Ice Cream (3g fat, 170 calories per serving)
Haagen Daz Coffee Frozen Yogurt (200 calories, 4.5g fat)
Edys Light Coffee Ice cream (105 calories, 3.5g fat)–but this one is full of air
