Dietary Horror – Most Horrible Drinks In America

May 23, 2010

So I woke up to this link Tweeted from the glorious Jessica Clark, Model & co-star of “Lesbian Love” (with her darling wife, Fitness Professional Lacey Stone).

Starbucks Death


Needless to say, this article from the World of Mysteries blog horrified both of us! Starbucks products claim three of twenty spots on that list; a list that grows more and more grotesque as the ranks increase. I’m sure we’ve all indulged in a few of these but, seriously, that much concentrated calories/carbs/sugars are just waaaaay beyond excessive.

I know it’s a lot of work to make these sorts of things at home but, when our health is in question, why not take the extra time for the good of our bodies? There are ways to indulge in similar sweet treats without overdoing it entirely. For one, I take issue with most commercial flavor syrups on the market. After extensive research, I find that CE Organics makes the best, smartest syrups for our coffees and teas. They can even be used for baking and a variety of other applications. My favorite one is the Hazelnut but they’re all great and they’re made from cane juice and natural flavors. 🙂

Tomorrow, I’ll post a recipe for some cool coffees. One hot, one cold perhaps.
