My Go-to Starbucks Orders

pic.jpgI don’t think I could fully function a single day without coffee and honestly, I don’t think I’ll try 😉 . When I don’t make a pot myself at home before work, my go-to is almost always Starbucks. At home- my vegan coffee adjustment was simple.

A week or so later my vegan journey began and of course, that’s when my cravings hit too.

Veggie burgers have come such a long way and some might even have you second guessing the fact that you aren’t eating meat. This explains why they are hands down, the most common vegan/vegetarian menu item at restaurants (besides salads).
