My Wife, Ruthie, usually has her cheat day on Saturday. It is a required part of her diet. She changed her lifestyle to one based on The Slow Carb Diet. The way it works is 6 days a week you eat lean meats, low carb vegetables etc… What happens is your metabolism slows down and to get it going again, one day a week you have a cheat day. On her cheat day she can have whatever she wants and as much as she wants, then its back to six days of eating healthy again. This is required on The Slow Carb Diet and not just something she chooses to do for the fun of it.
Just as any lifestyle change it isn’t for everyone but it has worked great for her and she with it. She has lost more than 250 pounds and kept it off. Right now she’s in a maintenance mode and working on staying where she is with her weight.
Today for her cheat day she went to The Big Biscuit and we learned there is a Starbucks nearby. I’d been wanting to try a coffee from there for awhile but haven’t had a chance to go there until today.
I read many comments from people I follow on Twitter about the wonderful drinks they have at Starbucks. So before placing my first order, I thought I’d consult with my experts. I got suggestions from three wonderful people all involved in the weight loss surgery world and healthy living. I even got some of the Starbucks lingo explained to me so I could understand the options.
I also decided to get a Chicken Quesadilla from Big Biscuit as I do like those and its something I can eat part of and put the rest in the refrigerator for later in the day. Ruthie got biscuits and Sausage gravy, a grilled cheese, sweet biscuit, and a fruit bowl. She already had some ice cream waiting for her at home.
We both agreed with our thoughts on The Big Biscuit. If you like food with your grease, its the place to go. She hasn’t opened the fruit bowl yet and I’m hoping its not as greasy as the quesadilla and the biscuits were. I guess there is a favorite place for everyone and if you are a fan of grease, this is the place for you. I haven’t looked at their menu but for the real grease lovers, maybe they sell sides of grease with a meal.
Thanks to my experts I had a Skinny Mocha Grande with soy milk and no whip. It was very very very yummy and I plan to go there again. Ruthie had a Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino and she said it was good. Its not something she wants every week and said she prefers drinks from the Caribou Coffee location inside our favorite grocery store, Hy-vee.
