Just Enough ‘J’

The ‘j’ day is really hard to do.  I usually go with Jambalaya on the day.  When having lunch i noticed this drink and it was delicious:

Rocking the ‘Italian’ Today

I have to say that ‘i’ is one of the toughest days.  I couldn’t think of anything good to eat for lunch, so i got an Italian sub today with Ben, Nader and Jon Clifford

A Great ‘G’ Lunch

I knew i had to eat a ‘G’ but i wasn’t sure what to do.  Luckily, i’m in the middle of Boulder and there are phenomenal restaurants all around.  I wanted to find a place that served Gumbo and i was surprised to see that there was one about 2 blocks from my office called Lucile’s.  

Not only was Lucile’s the cutest place on earth but the food was delicious.  I had a Gumbo plate and my friends had grits and a 3-cheese grilled cheese with bacon and avocado.  I made sure to get the sandwich in my pick so you can see the awesomeness.

Starting the ‘G’ Day

Today is a hard day.  I’m going to try for gumbo for lunch but that’s not a easy task in a mountain town in the middle of the winter.  

To get my day going, i went with some Granola, which in Boulder is about as common as road bikes.

Fish and Fries? Yes, please!

We all know that fish and chips are really just fish and french fries.  I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off my ‘F’ day than a greasy platter of Irish food. 

I will say that i had to abandon the rest of the work group to search out my ‘F’ feast but nobody said the alphabet diet was easy.  Eating yourself A to Z requires disciple, commitment and a willingness to eat almost anything.

This, for instance:

My ‘E’ was delicious

I was wondering what to eat for my ‘E’ dinner and then I came to the idea of Enchiladas.  What’s the best place to get enchiladas in Boulder?  Naturally i thought of the delicious restaurant of Centro.

Getting there, i was doubly pleased to learn that Mondays have happy hour all day.  I then grabbed my menu and was again pleasantly surprised to see that they have a fried egg in salsa as an item on the menu.


Only a few days into the diet, i can safely say that i am definitely getting some amazing variety.

Wait till you ‘C’ this lunch

Had a great lunch with Diane where we had Calamari for an appetizer and then a Chicken Cobb salad.  Who said the Alphabet Diet isn’t healthy?

C Day: Starting out a bit Crazy

The ‘C’ day is a bit easy.  I decided to challenge myself this morning and not just do cereal.  Instead, as you’ll see below, i’m eating Carmel Coffee Cake:

B Dinner: Buffalo Burgers

Finishing off my day of ‘B’ with an amazing dinner at a downtown burger joint.  I had Buffalo Bold Boulder Beer to drink.  For my entree, i had a Buffalo Burger with a side of broccoli.  A great day indeed.
