Beyoncé has adopted a vegan lifestyle again and she took to Instagram on Friday to encourage her 112 million followers to join her.
In preparation for her much-anticipated return performance at this year’s Coachella music festival in April, the 22-time Grammy winner shared her training regime by posting a mouth-watering photo of avocado toast with the caption, “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!!”
As if they needed more motivation to accept her vegan challenge, a fierce and fit Beyoncé then posted a sneak-peek of her rehearsing with some of her dancers on both Instagram and Facebook.
The posts also included a link to the meal-planning service 22 Days Nutrition which Beyoncé and Jay-Z co-founded in 2015 along with trainer Marco Borges who authored the book The 22-Day Revolution.
As per the company’s website which claims to have “the best vegan-diet meal plans for weight loss and clean eating,” the powerful duo “inspired many around the world to unleash the life-changing health benefits of a plant-based diet.”
The website also includes some of the many benefits of following a plant-based diet that are good for one’s health and the planet. Although the most important reason why we have gone vegan is for the animals.
“We know that we need to eat more veggies, but the fact is that most North American diets are distinctly lacking many nutrients that can be easily found in a plant-based diet: fiber, healthy fats, trace minerals and vitamins.,” notes the website which also purports that a lack of vegetables in the diet is also bad for your waistline. “Additionally, plant-based diets are low in bad cholesterol and saturated fats. By cutting out meat and eating more veggies, you can cut your risk of disease, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancers, and diabetes.”
The website also points to some staggering statistics for people to chew on such as “the same amount of animal protein, rather than plant protein, requires up to 17x more land, 26x as much water, and up to 50 times the fossil fuels.”
WAN applauds Beyoncé for supporting a vegan diet and looks forward to a time when she becomes vegan & fur-free every day!
