The ABC of Dieting
Created entirely digitally in Painter IX
Jim, my husband, is vegetarian (no meat or fish). He thought he might spend most of a month where on each day he only ate things that began with the letter for that day. (He was wondering about doing this in December so he can cheat on X and have Xmas Cake, Xmas pudding and maybe even Xmas Dinner all on Christmas Eve.)
The diet starts well.
On the first day he gets: apples, apricots, artichokes, asparagus, ackee, almonds, aubergine (unless he decides to call it egg-plant and eat it on E-day).
On the second day he gets: bananas, beans, beets, broccoli, Brie, bread, butter (but no bacon, remember he is vegetarian).
On the third day he gets: carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, cress, corn chips, cheddar cheese (but not cabbage or celery because he doesn't care for them).
And then comes D-day and all he can find are: dates and damsons
Can anyone help?
