Would you drink a milkshake for breakfast?

Now you all know how much I love Starbucks. It's my life line many days. Sick and wrong, I know. But anywho. So, this morning, I watched the woman in front of me order a venti Caramel Frappuccino®. She was practically salivating as the barista swirled a tower of whipped cream, followed by ribbons of caramel. Now I'm generally not one to judge other people's nutritional choices, cause I certainly don't always make stellar choices myself. But, it's 15 degrees outside, that thing has 500 empty calories and 16 grams of fat! Just for shits and giggles, I looked it up and yes, a small milkshake from McD's has less calories than that venti Frap! In other scary news, the largest milkshake they have (32 oz) rings in at a scary 1, 160 calories. I think I've been watching too much Oprah (the last two days have been about obese children).

Seriously though, would you drink a friggin' milkshake for breakfast!?

Some smoothies at Jamba juice are just as unhealthy and I'm had them for breakfast. It's not ok, but sometimes it sounds so delicious!

That's my brother's drink of choice at Starbucks! Not for me, especially in this freezing weather!

Being lactose intolerant, uh...yeah, I'd be out of commission for the rest of the day. At least!
