9 Low-Carb Foods to Order at Starbucks
Looking for a healthy snack to go with your coffee? Here's how to order low-carb Starbucks food.
Bacon and Gruyere Sous Vide Egg Bites
Is there anything low-carb at Starbucks? Yes! Start with the Sous Vide Egg Bites. All four varieties have fewer than 15 grams of carbs, but the lowest carb option is the Bacon and Gruyere, with only 9 grams of carbs. Made with eggs, two different cheeses, and—the best part—bacon, you won’t feel like you’re choosing health over flavor. For at-home breakfasts, try these satisfying low-carb recipes.
Turkey Bacon and Egg White Breakfast Sandwich (No Bun)
All of the Starbucks breakfast sandwiches are high in carbohydrates because of the bread. But the good news is you can order any of their sandwiches without the bun! They’ll warm up the inner sandwich components for you and you’ll have a delicious low-carb breakfast. The Turkey Bacon and Egg White Sandwich is only 2 grams of carbs without the English muffin.
Cauliflower Tabbouleh Side Salad
You might think ordering a salad is a safe choice if you’re trying to eat low-carb. But the truth is many salad dressings, including the Starbucks dressings, contain a lot of sugar and carbs. For a quick snack, opt for the Cauliflower Tabbouleh Side Salad. Served with lemon juice instead of dressing, it has only 7 carbs but tons of flavor.
Creminelli Sopressata Monterey Jack Snack Tray
When you’re eating less carbs, you need more protein to boost energy. With that in mind, the perfect pick-me-up snack is the Creminelli Sopressata Monterey Jack Snack Tray. It’s packed with 15 grams of protein and contains zero carbs. And who can say no to dry salami and cheese? Yum.
Field Trip Turkey Jerky
At the Starbucks register you’ll find some grab-and-go snacks. Each location differs, but many stores offer Field Trip Turkey Jerky. It’s a more natural take on jerky with no preservatives, gluten or added hormones. Grab a bag if you need a low-carb snack on the run. By the way, this is what happens to your body when you stop eating carbs.
Evolution Harvest Trail Mix
Need another snack to go? Evolution Harvest trail mix is a sweet and tangy mix of roasted nuts, seeds and dried fruit. It’s sweetened with fruit juice instead of sugar so the sugar and carb content is relatively low. The mandarin orange, cantaloupe and strawberry blend contains only 9 grams of carbs.
Turkey Pesto Panini (No Bun)
The Turkey Pesto Panini is served on a focaccia roll, which is about 47 grams of carbs. Simply take off the bun for a low-carb lunch. The sliced turkey, melty provolone cheese and fire-roasted peppers will still provide a delicious and filling meal. Next, try these clever bun substitutes for your next cookout.
Some Starbucks locations sell Moon Cheese, a crunchy gluten-free cheese snack that will trick you into thinking you’re indulging in chips. It’s high in protein and calcium because it’s literally made of just cheese. Each bag only contains about 4 to 5 carbs.
Garden Greens & Shaved Parmesan Salad
Another great low-carb choice is the Garden Greens and Shaved Parmesan Salad. It’s made with radicchio, snap peas and a lemon vinaigrette. You’ll love the zesty flavor, and your waistline will love that it’s only has 9 carbs and 4 grams of sugar.
