Before anything else, yes, her name is Beautiful Existence, and yes, she might not have a very beautiful existence if she goes through with her challenge of chowing down on nothing but Starbucks food for a year.
I’m not saying Starbucks doesn’t serve stellar sandwiches, donuts, or coffee, because they do. Heck, I love their hot chocolate to pieces and it’s a drink I turn to when I’m feeling particularly down or homesick (when I’m away for work.)
However, living only on Starbucks food for a year doesn’t sound appealing, even to a fan like me. Beautiful isn’t being sponsored by Starbucks or any other company, and if you do the math, she’ll be spending close to $7,000 the whole year due to this ‘resolution.’
Beautiful explains her motivation behind the challenge: “The company pays good benefits for part-time workers. That’s where my money is going… We’re really lucky and I would say actually spoiled as Americans because we have all these different eating options…You go to all these other countries and they don’t have these luxuries. Really? Is it really going to be that hard for one year of my life to limit my menu? We’ll find out.”
Sounds like a plan but I wonder what this is going to do to her health? We all saw what happened to that guy who ate nothing but McDonald’s for one month (remember Morgan Spurlock and his Super Size Me documentary?)
All I can say is… Good luck, Beautiful!
