"The tables have turned, and this time, I'm dancing on them," Shannon Beador says in her Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 tagline. And indeed, the Orange County mama is in a particularly fun phase of her life. Just press play on the video above to hear her describe her go-with-the-flow, tequila-infused daily diet.
While some people stick to a pretty rigid eating schedule, Shannon lets the day take her where it may. After kicking off the morning with water, hormone pills, and a protein shake, the QVC entrepreneur grabs lunch whenever the spirit moves her. It could be 11 a.m., it could be 3 p.m. — who knows?
After eating a salad topped with protein, it's on to dinner of more protein, veggies, and a little bit of starch. Timing is just as loose for dinner as it is for lunch. But whether she has her meal at 5:30 or 9 p.m., there's been one fun constant on the side. "Lately I've been drinking tequila with dinner," Shannon confessed. And though her stomach may be suffering a wee bit, "I'm having fun, so that's all that matters," she said triumphantly.
Wait, what happened to Shannon's famous vodka-soda cocktails? Watch her explain what inspired her to make the switch from vodka to tequila — with a few laughs along the way — in the video above.
