Jay Z and Beyonce kick off 22-day vegan challengeWhen Jay Z began his 44th trip around the sun Wednesday morning, it was with a new perspective on food and health. "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," he recently announced on, explaining that the idea came to him via a friend who encouraged him to try "plant-based" eating at breakfast. Apparently, Jay kinda dug it."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!" he continued."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 …" In a post-script, Jay added that "B is joining me." As she should. What good are wedding vows if a spouse won't see you through sickness, health ... and lots and lots of tofu?
