A little over a year ago, Beyonce and Jay-Z decided to go vegan for a whopping 22 days. Instead of doing it for animal welfare reasons, it seemed more like a crash diet that they took part in because it was hip and trendy – especially since they broke this vegan phase with a massive dinner of seafood and fried chicken, if I remember right.
Anyhoo, Beyonce has realised she doesn’t have enough money and that the Beyhive will basically do anything to be like her, so she’s joined up with ~fitness guru~ Marco Borges to start selling you vegan meals delivered to your home – for just $150 a week! The business is called 22 Days Nutrition – based off Borges’ idea that it takes 21 days to form a new habit and by day 22, you’re on your way to being a healthier person.
Here’s the press release for this nonsense:
The home delivery service was born out of a demand from Borges’ friends, colleagues and clients who enjoyed his delicious meals that were naturally low in fat, sugar and salt and filled with flavor from whole-foods such as vegetables, beans, grains, herbs and spices. The home delivery program takes away all the guesswork and makes it easy to adopt the plan.
“I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example,” says Beyonce. “He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try. If I can do it, anyone can. I am excited to partner with him.”
The longtime fitness expert, who has been a leader in the field for over 20 years, says it’s really not about asking everyone to become a vegan but rather to make simple healthier food choices so they can live a more energetic and productive life.
“I am humbled by this incredible partnership and excited to share the many benefits of a whole-foods plant-based diet,” says Borges.
“We all know the importance and value of eating plant-based foods but often times find ourselves trapped in a series of bad habits that sabotage optimum wellness. The Vegan Meal Delivery program makes it easier to reset your habits with healthy and delicious plant-based foods.”
I don’t think food or fitness is one size fits all in any way, shape or form. If you wanna be vegan and live on mostly carbs, sure, knock yourself out. It doesn’t make you healthier than non-vegans. Also, charging someone $150 for a week’s worth of food is absolute bullshit. Then again, home meal delivery services aren’t anything new. It’s just a shame that people will still buy into this crap instead of, you know, taking the time to buy your own groceries, prepare your own foods at home.
I’m sure Beyonce will get even richer from this, though, so I guess good for her? You know, despite the fact that I’m preeeeetty sure she’s not vegan anymore and doesn’t follow this shit herself (which would be nothing new – lots of celebs endorse products they CLEARLY don’t use just for the money).
