Starbucks New Summer Menu

Starbucks is a favorite of many. I for one always go to Starbucks, give or take three times a day, when I’m at the office. Whether it’s for a coffee retail, or a healthy snack, I love the fact that there’s plenty of options.

Now, Starbucks is about to expand their options, and ensure that my daily trips get doubled. Starbucks is about to launch a new Summer Lunch menu, including items that are fresh, light and flavorful.

Beginning on April 30th, this new selection of salad bowls and deli sandwiches will be the perfect quick lunch options. Another major score of this is that each of the lunch items are less than 450 calories a piece.

Here is the menu lineup:

  • Chicken and Greens Caesar Salad Bowl: A familiar favorite, Caesar salad, is made over with a healthful twist of fresh kale and the addition of roasted tomatoes, all topped with grilled chicken. (With dressing: 340 calories, 25g fat, 19g protein)
  • Zesty Chicken and Black Bean Salad Bowl: A blend of grilled chicken, black beans, roasted corn, jicama, tomatoes, feta, spring greens and protein-rich quinoa is topped with a mild chile vinaigrette. (With dressing: 360 calories, 15g fat, 19g protein)
  • Hearty Veggie and Brown Rice Salad Bowl: Roasted butternut squash and beets are tossed with sliced kale and red cabbage, steamed broccoli florets, garden peas and all topped with a lemony tahini dressing. (With dressing: 430 calories, 22g fat, 10g protein)

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m excited.
