So I learned two things this week.
1) When two of your best friends are in a fight. Stay out of it.
2) The latte I drink everyday at Coffee Bean has 330 calories! (and 13.2 grams of fat). WTH!
OK, let’s forget #1. It’s Friday and time for happy thoughts!
And in regards to #2. I wish I could forget that. Too late now!!
If you don’t already drink the Hazelnut Latte at Coffee Bean, do yourself a favor and don’t start. For me it has been a passionate love affair and a powerful addiction.
For those that don’t count calories, I’ll make it simple:
330 calories is the equivalent to one meal.
OK, so let’s be real here. I can’t cut out my lattes. I love them so much. I need them! (I sound like a true addict).
But I can cut back.
And I found a great new helper this week at Sur La Table. These awesome little Bodum espresso cups. Modern and sleek with a silicone wrap.
Espresso = no calories, no fat. (Not including sugar).
These little suckers would be great stocking stuffers! Ever have a white elephant holiday party at your office and can’t think of anything to bring? Hello!
They cost $5.95 each. I bought two in store at Sur La Table for a grand total of $13.06 (with tax).
BUT… you can can get them online for less. Here. $19.95 for a set of 6!
And Bodum offers free shipping on some items!
