Am I starting to get over Starbucks?
I never thought I’d see that day, but after I read this article at the Skinny Confidential, I kinda started to back off the Fraps. To be clear, I’ve always done the best I can to skinny my frap, but reading this, I was really over the concept of spending like $5 on something that was packed with a ton of fake sugars and crap that my body didn’t want to digest.
I haven’t quite figured out how I’m going to get my caffeine, but I do know this.
Two weeks ago, I changed my normal order (nonfat latté with two Splendas) and went for a venti iced nonfat caramel latté. A few hours later, I started to feel horribly ill. My head hurt, throbbed even. I felt nauseated, and definitely was experiencing symptoms that felt a little like food poisoning. I didn’t think anything of it, but drank as much water as possible, and kinda suffered through the next two days.
So I did a little experiment.
The middle of last week, I ordered the exact same thing, had a bottle of Aleve at the ready, and waited. And the same. Thing. Happened.
I’m not sure what’s going on, but something with that caramel flavoring takes me from 0-runners trots and I will avoiding that order for the rest of the foreseeable future.
Anyone else have a food that you literally not stomach?
