J. Wilson has survived his 46-day beer-only fast and found some unexpected spiritual insights.

Wilson, who lives outside Des Moines, Iowa, was emulating a Lenten tradition carried out by German monks hundreds of years ago. In keeping with tradition he ate his last solid food on Ash Wednesday and broke his fast on Easter Sunday.

“I made a bacon smoothie and that’s what I broke the fast with,” Wilson said.

He slurped down the smoothie after midnight on the morning of Easter Sunday. He was up late for an interview with the BBC in London for their Easter Sunday broadcast.

      Please only do so when you have not been drinking. I have a feeling it won't taste as good a second time around.

    I have always been the type that would eat anything with bacon, but this sounds downright disgusting. Just sayin'

      I found this one...

      1/2 cup yogurt
      1 cup soy milk
      1/4 cup acai
      1/2 cup frozen raspberries and blueberries
      1 TSP greens (dietary supplement)
      2 strips of slow cooked, savory maple bacon
      1-2 TBSP dark chocolate powder
      1 TBSP Agave

      Pretty simple. Just throw it all in a blender and blend it.

      Sounds yummy!
