Last month we learned that Jay Z and Beyoncé were going vegan, if only for 22 days. As a part of his 44th birthday celebration, Jay took up a challenge set before him by a vegan chef/friend and decided to fully embrace the vegan lifestyle for 22 days. I thought it sounded cool, and mentioned that I’ve had some seriously bomb Caribbean vegan food in my day so I can see how one could fairly easily go vegan with the right food (and the right vegan chefs). And it seems like Beyoncé really enjoyed the experience because a new Instagram photo suggests that she’s going back on another challenge. Click inside for more!
Vegan Bey, Le Deux:
Some people called out Bey and Jay for being gimmicky, and/or for making the vegan lifestyle seem more like a trend than anything. But I can’t really be mad at them for promoting this particular movemement. And based on what we saw of Bey at the Grammy’s, veganism does a body pretty damn good.
What do you guys think? Is Queen Bey on her way to becoming a full-blown 365 day/year vegan?
Oh, and apparently this 22-day challenge isn’t just something Bey and Jay are doing. It really is a whole movement, hence the label on the chocolate bar). Go HERE to learn more about 22 Days Nutrition.
P.S. Okay, I just read the 22 Days Manifesto and I am SO into it. I have to say, this sounds like a great project and I’m glad Bey is promoting it.
