Actually I’ve got nothing against Big Bad Starbucks.
I get that they pretty much take over the coffee scene wherever they pop up. And I get that you can’t get outta there without spending more than you should for something you could technically make at home. But still… they make Creme Brulee Frappucinos! Come on! How can you hate on a company that birthed the idea of a Creme Brulee Frappuccino?
Oops… this post is NOT about Creme Brulee Frappuccinos. Don’t drink those if you’re trying to slim down. (They’re just not the SAME when you go the non-fat, sugar free, no whipped cream route. Don’t do it!)
No no… this post is about these babies!
Meet the spinach, feta, & eggwhite breakfast wrap! (Is this picture gross? Sorry if you find this picture gross.)
I’ve not seen its equal at any other drive-through eating establishment… and I’m sure not interested in whipping one of these up at home. (Cooking spinach at home is SO not my thing. The thawing, the heating, the wringing it out. No thanks! Not to mention I’d also have to separate eggs and cook those as well.) I am HAPPY to pay Starbucks $3.50 to do all that work for me!
In return I get an insanely healthy meal in just minutes.
It’s a whole grain wrap filled with delicious feta (one of the healthiest cheeses you can choose… it is naturally low in fat!), plus nutrient-dense spinach, & high protein/ low cholesterol eggwhites… it’s delicious! And SO nutritious.
This is a staple for me when I am on-the-go and need a healthy, high-protein bite to eat. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a snack like that is very hard to come by when you’re out and about. Unless you’ve pre-packed yourself a few snacks, your drive-through options are pretty much a burger, a taco, or a nasty salad.
Thankfully, no matter where you are… you are likely not more than a few miles from a Starbucks.
*Just keep in mind they tend to run out of the breakfast wraps by mid-morning. I’ve only been lucky enough to nab one in the afternoon on the rarest of occasions.
Now, go forth and enjoy this newly discovered delight!
