ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) — Still on the fence about starting that New Year’s resolution of actually going to the gym and being healthy? Well, Beyoncé and Jay-Z may have made your decision a little bit easier.
In the introduction for Marco Borges’ — Beyoncé’s trainer — new book entitled, “The Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World“, the music powerhouse couple are challenging their fans to try veganism in the new year.
“Having children has changed our lives more than anything else,” the couple wrote, featured in People magazine. “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.”
“We all have a responsibility to stand up for our health and the health of the planet. Let’s take this stand together. Let’s spread the truth. Let’s make this mission a movement. Let’s become ‘the Greenprint,’” they added.
Beyoncé announced her lifestyle change back in March 2018 by posting a photo on Instagram with the caption “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!!” as she followed a vegan diet formulated by the 22 Days Nutrition meal planner; a program she co-founded alongside her husband Jay-Z and Borges.
If you’re not sold on it quite just yet, Beyoncé has a few words to inspire you: “If I can do it, anyone can..all you have to do is try,” she states.
