So it’s bad enough when you go out to dinner with a “friend” and they announce that they’re going vegan just as you order the ribs, but now it looks like we now have to deal with these announcements from our fave celebrities. I wasn’t even going to post this news, until I learned from Stereogum how Jay declared the news, writing an official statement saying:

Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.

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!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…

Why now? 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!

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…

Best of luck and health!

P.S. B is also joining me.

I will let my friend Marco explain the benefits of a plant based diet here.

Blah blah blah, spiritual 44th birthdays! Blah, blah, blah “plant-based breakfasts” – I honestly have no problem with people going vegan, but I do have a problem when they’re announcing it to the world (especially when it’s not really anybody’s business Mr. and Mrs. Privacy Carter), and also when you’re doing it in a really lame way. I mean, I except this type of shit from Goop.com, but come on. Even Beyonce flyaway blonde locks looks better on G. Pal, right? Discuss.
