Just when you thought the Carter-Knowles family couldn't possibly be any cooler! Jay-Z, who turned 44 yesterday, announced on his blog that he and his wife Beyonce are challenging themselves to eat vegan for 22 days, as a way to get healthier. Why 22 days? Because it takes 21 to form a habit and "on the 22nd day, you've found the way," he wrote.
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” every day. 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.
We wish the Carter-Knowles family lots of luck in their journey and hope their plant-based state of mind is here to stay!
