Beyoncé and Jay-Z are encouraging fans to go vegan — and people are having a field day

Published 9 January 2019

“We used to think of health as a diet – some worked for us, some didn’t. Once we looked at health as the truth, instead of a diet, it became a mission for us to share that truth and lifestyle with as many people as possible.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z encouraged fans to embrace a plant-based diet and people are having a field day online.

The couple wrote the introduction to a book titled “The Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World,” which was released by their personal trainer, Marco Borges, on December 31, 2018. In it, Beyoncé and Jay-Z explained their personal connection to a healthy lifestyle.

“Having children has changed our lives more than anything else,” they wrote in the foreward. “We used to think of health as a diet – some worked for us, some didn’t. Once we looked at health as the truth, instead of a diet, it became a mission for us to share that truth and lifestyle with as many people as possible.”

The parents of three – Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir – added that they’re “not about promoting any one way of living your life,” but recommend that people include plant-based meals into their daily routines.

After fans caught wind of the suggestion, they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Many people felt that the award-winning musicians can afford to purchase healthy products, while many have lower incomes or might not have the accessibility.
