Rate This Recipe

Love your daily Starbucks protein box habit, but ready to make your own? This DIY Starbucks egg and cheese protein box is so easy-to-make, there is no prep even necessary! Just pack and go, you can do it in 2 minutes. Each cheese and fruit protein box (Starbucks copycat) has over 29 grams of protein, so it will keep you satisfied until your next meal. And if you’re Starbucks-obsessed, be sure to try my tomato mozzarella panini, turkey pesto panini, and homemade cold foam for all of your starbucks coffee copycats.

One of the best parts about talking about food and nutrition (aka MY JOB!) is to continually stress the importance of NOT being perfect when it comes to health and wellness.

Your meals don’t have to be perfectly clean or paleo, your workouts don’t have to be intense or total body, YOU don’t have to be perfect to lead a healthy, happy life! It’s true!

Take breakfast for example. Yes, it’s best for your body to get a dose of protein first thing, to help regulate blood sugar levels throughout the day. But it doesn’t mean that if you don’t make a spinach omelette with sprouted toast on the side then you’ve failed at a nutritious breakfast.

Meals can be convenient, tasty, and best of all, EASY!

Just like this Starbucks protein box with cheese and fruit. Snack boxes are great from an eating standpoint because they offer many different flavors and textures in a fun delivery but they’re also great from a nutrition standpoint because they offer many different nutrient groups (protein, fiber, fruits, vitamins, etc.).
