Exciting news from Jay Z, the American rapper and entrepreneur!
According to Jay Z’s latest blog post, which was posted yesterday, he and Beyonce are going on a 22 Day Vegan Challenge, at the end of which awaits, perhaps, a new lifestyle!
A good friend who is vegan challenged me
As Jay Z writes in his blog post, it seems that a good friend of his, who is vegan, challenged him a while ago to start his days with a vegan breakfast. Jay Z was surprised at how easy it was, and have now decided to take on a full 22 Day Vegan Challenge.
Vegan vs. plant-based
One of the most surprising parts of Jay Z’s blog post is his distinction between a plant based diet and a vegan lifestyle. While many people confuse the two and even the media has mistakenly attributed vegan diets to both Bill Clinton and Al Gore’s plant-based, health-related dietary regimes, Jay Z actually acknowledged the difference between the two:
“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…”
Apparently his vegan friend has been doing some great work!
Beyonce is joining too!
Another part of the exciting news is that his wife, the popular singer and artist, Beyonce, will be joining him on this challenge. We are really hoping that doing this as a couple will help get them both on board – fingers crossed!
Jay Z is asking for your help!
While Jay Z is not sure what awaits him after the challenge, he seems to be open to various possibilities, and he is also asking for support, writing “Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha”. Should we send him our top 40 vegan food blog guides for some inspiration?
As Jay Z promises to update on his progress, we promise to keep checking out his blog for the latest news.
Let’s hope that this plant-based experiment will eventually lead to a full-on vegan lifestyle. With the combined star power and following of Jay Z and Beyonce, compassion would get some really great exposure!
