It's the beginning of March and, for many, that signifies the start of spring and the tapering off of winter. The warmer weather leaves many of us (myself included) craving crisp, bright flavors. That being said, the longer days leave me in need of more caffeine, too. In perfect timing, Starbucks just released these three new menu items so you can ring in spring deliciously—and they all happen to be plant-based. Eating a more plant-based diet can help keep your heart healthy, boost weight loss and lower chronic disease risk.
