As I made my way to Starbucks this morning, I was ready to order my regular coffee and doughnut when I noticed the coffee sign was different. I asked the lady about it and she said “yes today is the premiere of the new healthier food options”. So I politely asked what they were and on the glass case where the food is was a new sign that read – No Artificial Trans Fats, No Artificial Flavors, No Artificial Dyes and No High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Along with these changes they have added some new menu items, such as Bluberry Oat Bar, Banana Walnut Bread, Marshmallow Dream Bar, and the best part – the Farmers Market Salad – it sounds amazing, with blue cheese, almonds, cranberries, and apples on a bed of romaine lettuce with all natural balsamic vinaigrette and only 300 calories.
Bringing the same passion Starbucks has in serving customers some of the best coffee in the world, the company went back to the kitchen and started from scratch. Starbucks baked and tasted hundreds of recipes to make its food more as nature intended, cutting out all artificial flavors, dyes and high fructose corn syrup, as well as artificial preservatives wherever possible.
I am so impressed by these changes, it makes me feel better knowing that Im not ingesting all that artificial junk. Get out and enjoy some – Real Food. Simply Delicious.
