In the coffee-shop drive-thru, the main thing to know is that the fancy froo-froo drinks and the pastries and breads are not your friend. ❌

The second thing to pay attention to is the fact that many of these drive-thrus will have plain coffee with real half n half and stevia sweeteners, as well as healthier protein options. ✅


This combination gives you protein, fiber, healthy carbs, and some fat to keep you full longer and your blood sugar in check.

What you CAN order: ✅

  • Water (excellent option for first thing  in the am when you've been getting dehydrated all night.)
  • Plain coffee (NO flavored syrups--they're loaded with sugar. Opt for REAL milk or half n half + stevia sweetener if you want it sweet {usually the green packets of sweetener}.)
  • Protein (hard-boiled eggs, sous vide egg bites, omelet, frittata, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage {in burrito bowl format perhaps?}, peanut butter or almond butter).
  • Oatmeal (NO sugar toppings; add fruit + nuts + stevia to sweeten)
  • Fresh fruit
  • Veggies (spinach, peppers, celery, carrots)

What to AVOID: ❌

  • Flavored syrups (FULL of sugar!)
  • Any fancy drink (FULL of sugar!)
  • Breads
  • Croissants
  • Muffins
  • English Muffins
  • Cookies
  • Cakes
  • Pastries
