This Lady Ate Only Starbucks For a Whole Year

By: Lawrence Bonk

Sometimes people can do absolutely incredible things. The pyramids, the Olympic games, Breaking Bad.  Also, oh yeah, there's a lady who spent 2013 eating exclusively at Starbucks. 

The story we reported on almost a year ago today about a Seattle woman named Beautiful Existence (yep) completed the marvelous feat of culinary strength, eating every single meal at the famous coffee chain for an entire year. Why would a person spend $600 a month to do something like that?

"So again, 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!" she says. 

Not to rain on her parade, but it must be noted that Starbucks has all kinds of food options nowadays. It's not like she dined on donuts and creamer for a year. Maybe in 2014.
