The countdown begins!
Beyoncé and Jay Z are eliminating meat and animal products from their diets until Christmas, the rapper revealed via his Life + Times blog on Tuesday, Dec. 3.
“Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way,” Jay Z wrote. “On December 3, 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’ every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought.”
The “Holy Grail” rapper then explained why he waited until now to practice veganism. “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,” he wrote. “It just feels right!”
Jay Z added that this will be “a spiritual and physical cleanse” of sorts. He promised to post his progress and asked longtime vegans for restaurant tips. “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.”
He ended the post by confirming that his wife of five years is on board. “B is also joining me,” he said.
Just when I thought this couple couldn’t be more annoying I was wrong! There is nothing more annoying than vegans in my opinion. I will say that most of them are very stuck up and if you say you eat meat, good luck. They will attack you with facts about your meat, show you pictures of animals being tortured, and then judge you for life. Now, if you are a vegan and you are not like that, I would like to meet you because you must be a unicorn, just majestic and shit.
I don’t understand when Jay-Z went from the hard knock life to being a damn vegan. Apparently this is going to be spiritual for him…. It makes no sense to me what so ever! I get that now he is a business and family man but come on Jay, come on. Also all of that bullshit he wrote about it going with math, shut up. Do not mix math with food, you are combining something I love with something I hate.
I wish I could do that but McDonald’s is cheaper than expensive food. Clogged arteries for life over here!
