What to eat: Sous Vide Egg Bites: Bacon & Gruyere + Creminelli Sopressata Monterey Jack Snack Tray
Tread very lightly at Starbucks, my keto-eating friends. “I’m a big advocate of the keto diet, and Starbucks is filled with high-carb products,” notes Tracee Gluhaich, an Integrative Health Coach and personal trainer. But she vouches for the Egg Bites with Bacon and Gruyere -- especially paired with a drip coffee and heavy cream. “This is a perfect keto combo!” she said. “[A coffee with] two tablespoons of heavy cream [and together with the egg bites] contain 412 calories, 33 grams fat, 10 grams carbs, and 19 grams protein.”
If you’re hungry, but not hungry hungry, listen to Gabby Geerts, the RD at Green Chef, who likes the Creminelli Sopressata Monterey Jack Snack Tray. The fancy-as-hell sounding meat and cheese plate “complies to keto requirements and is a satisfying in-between meal selection” with zero carbs, 17 grams fat, and 15 grams protein.
What to drink: Anything where you can substitute the milk and sugar
Part of the beauty of Starbucks is the ability for the barista to customize almost any drink to your specs! Gluhaich says that anything with milk can get heavy cream instead, and you can use its sugar-free syrup for any drink that has pumps of sugar. One of her favorites is a “latte with heavy cream and sugar-free vanilla syrup -- either iced or hot.” If you ask nicely, you can get that blended and basically customize your own Frappuccino.
