While most of us are getting ready for a season of baking holiday treats and attending copious cheese-ball-laden cocktail parties, Jay Z and Bey are going vegan, according to NME. While it might seem like a bold attempt to fight off the stuffed Christmas goose, this isn't about holiday willpower. In fact, Jay Z has been eating a plant-based breakfast for a few months now, which he claims was "easier on me than I thought."
Just yesterday (on the eve of his 44th birthday), Hov announced on his blog that the dynamic duo are taking the 22 Days Challenge, a regimen that's promoted by his exercise physiologist pal Marco Borges. He goes on to ask (sorta beg) any professional vegans for their nosh-spot recommendations, so post that place with the killer vegan pasta and help a media mogul out. So, what exactly happens after 22 days? "I don’t know what happens after Christmas," writes Jay. "A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We’ll see…" (NME)
