Next week I will be attempting another one of my 101 Things in 1001 Days list. That challenge is 79) Spend a week eating only food that begin with a single letter of the alphabet, with my choice of letter.
And that choice of letter will be C.
After briefly thinking about foods that begin with different letters I feel that C gives me a nice balance of nutrition and tasty foods. There are two things to keep in mind whilst spending from Monday 22nd April to Sunday 28th April eating nothing but C foods.
Firstly these foods cannot be meals that consist of different foods. For example “chilli con carne” is not allowed because it consists of beef, kidney beans, and so on. One food type that is allowed is food that may have different names depending on where you’re from. For example if I was eating A foods and I came across an eggplant (the American name) I could eat it because it is also known as an aubergine.
Lastly I am not limited with what I drink. So I can drink a cup of tea with my chicken breast. Which is a food thing too because I’m attending a cheese and wine quiz next Saturday.
So for the next week I can imagine that my meals will go something like this:
Lunch: cucumbers and carrots
Dinner: chicken and corn
Rinse and repeat.
I probably should keep a food diary of what I eat during that week. Maybe I’ll take a picture and stick it on Instagram. That seems to be the thing to do.
