The struggle is real when it comes to finding a healthy hot lunch. Unless you want fried chicken (which sometimes we really do but our ‘summer body’ plan will not permit this kind of eating on a daily basis), there isn’t much else out there.
Whilst we’re thrilled its Spring, we need something a little more toasty than a sandwich on the chilly days. Bread is usually a ‘no no’ in some ‘summer body’ plans anyway and soup doesn’t really fills us up when we want to warm up.
Luckily Starbucks has been thoughtful of our needs and have launched three different hot lunch choices. With as little as 310 kcals per Hot Box, they are bursting with fresh flavours, bread-free and available in Starbuck stores across the UK from today.
Available to eat in or take away, each box is freshly warmed in store.
