Hollywood power couple Beyonce and Jay Z have decided to “go green” by giving up meat and dairy (eggs, milk, etc.) for 22 days. Jay Z made the announcement in a post on his personal blog.
The aging rap mogul says he and his wife Beyonce will contribute to saving the environment by eating a vegan diet including a nutritious “plant-based breakfast” everyday for 22 days.
Jay Z says he was inspired to go green when a good friend challenged him to go vegan a few months back.
The father of two also said growing one year older triggered “something spiritual” within him. This sounds similar to what menopausal women go through. It’s called The Change, Jay Z.
From The Life Files:
Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.
On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…
Why now? There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day…It just feels right!
So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress… Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha. I don’t know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We’ll see…
Best of luck and health!
P.S. B is also joining me.
