On Tuesday, hip-hop’s favorite power couple, Queen Bey and Jay Z, announced that they will be embracing a vegan diet for the next 22 days. The hip-hop mogul described his decision to go meat and dairy-free on his blog saying, “One day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan…It just feels right!” And then Beyoncé Instagrammed the this photo of four meat-free dishes she’s ostensibly eaten, and, well, the Internet basically exploded.
As a pescatarian 20-something who can’t actually afford fish or cheese, like, ever, I’m pretttttty much de facto vegan. (I actually do make a conscious effort to maintain a dairy-free diet but sometimes, after a few too many margaritas, pizza just happens.) So with a little help from some vegan friends, I’m here to give my favorite famous couple some frank advice about what to expect during their 22-day experiment. Do you have any advice for Beyonce and Jay Z? Let us know in the comments.
