Beautiful Existence (legal name), claims to have eaten nothing but Starbucks food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the entire year of 2013. The 365-day diet included everything on the Starbucks menu or “Starbucks-inspired” brand, from it’s pastries, salads, Evolution Fresh line to its espressos and the “F word.” Existence documented the experiment on her blog, although it seems to officially begun on January 2, 2013. Still, we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.
When explaining the reasoning behind her year-long goal, the mother of two explained:
WHY? am I doing this challenge? Or WHY? will I do any challenge in the future? Because I LOVE being human and I LOVE the privilege of being able to ask the question WHY? in the first place! I love the question WHY? because sometimes I find that the answer leaves me with even more questions about life… and then, my circle starts all over again and I wouldn’t want my WHY? any other way.
While Existence still shopped and cooked for her children as usual, she remained steadfast towards her goal even on Thanksgiving and other tempting holidays. She spent an average of $500 to $600 per month on Starbucks meals and by the end of the year shed a few pounds. To celebrate the completion of her challenge, Existence chowed down of fish and chips from Ivar’s, a seafood chain based in Seattle. “My taste buds have been freaking out for the last 24 hours,” Existence told The New York Daily News. “Starbucks doesn’t really have anything that’s fried, and you can only eat so much after you haven’t had stuff like that for a year.”
Well, isn’t that a shocker.
