Starbucks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A Seattle woman did just that in 2013, even on Thanksgiving and her birthday!
She challenged herself to eat and drink only items that could be purchased from Starbucks or its partner stores -- for an entire year.
She blogging and photographed her meals along the way -- and even lost some weight!
Her name is "Beautiful Existence." That's right, her legal name really is "Beautiful Existence."
She told CNN's "New Day" there was plenty of variety most of the time.
"Actually, I was really lucky this last year because they introduced La Bouldange, so they changed their menu options with that. They also opened up like a Teavana store around here and they had different food options with that. Evolution Fresh kind of changes their food items every season as well, so I actually had quite a few things that changed during this last year that offered me a really great variety. They actually kept changing the food items as well, so it was actually really easy for the entire year to find something new all the time with them," said Existence.
The 40-year-old mother of two kept shopping and cooking meals for her two children during the challenge.
She kept all her receipts, and says she ended up spending more than $7,000 at Starbucks over the year.
In case you were wondering, her first non-Starbucks meal was fish and chips. This was her third year of challenges.
For 2014, she plans to learn how to do every sport featured at REI, which is about 80 recreational sports.
