Worst Tasting Starbucks Drinks

Okay, before I start this rant, allow me to preface that I am a Starbucks aficionado. All of my Snapchats usually include me drinking Starbucks about three times a week and I have various Instagram pictures of Starbucks. However, Starbucks is normally my quick fix because I prefer quaint little cafes, but they do have some amazing drinks that I just adore! Although I am a well known Starbucks addict, there are a few drinks that aren't particularly my favorite. So here is a list of Starbucks drinks that I don't love a latte!

1. Caffe Americano

So for those that don't know, an Americano is espresso with water poured over it to produce a light layer of cream. I absolutely cannot stand Americanos from Starbucks. They are watered down and they honestly disgust me. I usually opt for one from my local cafe instead. To me, it tastes like water, and trust me, I know I'm a caffeine addict, so my version of watered down may be different, but believe me when I say it's universal.

2. Pumpkin Spice Latte Frappuccino

Okay, the infamous PSL is probably my favorite drink from Starbucks to ever exist but as a frappuccino, the thought of it makes me nauseous. To me it tastes like unbaked pumpkin pie filling blended with ice, it's just too rich and bland.

3. Eggnog Latte

I don't know why I hate this drink. I love eggnog and I love lattes but this just tastes gross to me. The warm eggnog makes me feel like I'm drinking half scrambled eggs! Yuck!

4. Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino

This frappuccino was recommended to me by a friend. I expected it to taste like a caramel infused cinnamon roll, but it just tasted like watered down coffee and made me feel like I just did the cinnamon challenge.

5. Pink Drink

Okay, the strawberry acai is great, I love it with and without lemonade. A friend of mine even recommends it with strawberries, blackberries, and light ice, and it's fantastic. However, as a pink drink, I can't stand it. Maybe for a cute Instagram, but other than that, I'll pass on this one.

6. Iced Salted Caramel Mocha

I used to love this drink, but now the mocha flavor is too strong. If you like mocha, this might be the drink for you.

7. Gingerbread Latte

I love gingerbread, it's one of my favorite holiday cookies, but this Starbucks drink is way too spicy for my taste.

8. Violet Drink

Roses may be red, but this violet drink always leaves me feeling blue.

9. Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte

I love pumpkin spice as much as the next girl, but please don't put it in everything!

10. Shaken Sweet Tea

I get they call it sweet tea, but this drink is too sweet for my taste.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
