Guilty pleasure in a bottle

20110930-033325.jpg

This is how off my “healthy meter” is- I actually saw this soy vanilla chai drink at shop rite and though “wow that sounds delicious AND pretty healthy!” 19 g of protein? Even better!

I bought the close to $3 drink and I was right about one thing… It tasted amazing! The combination of vanilla and chai should incorporated into more things! Unfortunately I was not right when it came to my idea of healthy.

It does have a lot of calories… It is one of those labels that gives you the nutritional value per serving and since it’s one bottle you assume THAT is the serving but it ends up being like 35368 servings! Ok, I’m exaggerating, it’s only 2 but you get my point.

The good news is that it is so filling it almost acts as a meal replacement!

The point of this post is to introduce you to a very satisfying beverage for your taste buds and suggest occasionally treating yourself to one!:)

I have never been a coffee person. All of my life, people have been telling me, “wait until you are in college,” or “oh, wait until you start pledging a sorority,” and “you will start once you have a full time job.” Well all of those have come and gone and the only time I even sipped a coffee was when I went to Disney World with my mom and sister in middle school. ¬†And that was just to see what all of the fuss was about! I don’t particularly care for the smell and I think that’s the part I can’t get past. So anyway, my next hurdle is everyone saying “wait until you have kids…” but I don’t have to worry about that any time soon!

Since coffee is not my drink of choice in the morning, I would like to share with you what I do love and would encourage you to try! I discovered Silk Soy Milk in college thanks to one of my roommates, Lindsay , and have been drinking it ever since. I prefer the light vanilla because it is perfect as a glass or over cereal…especially good with Speciak K Vanilla Almond cereal.

What drink do you like to start your day off with?

What is your morning beverage of choice?
