Beyonce’s New Vegan Diet Can be Delivered to Your Door. But is it Worth It?

beyonce-kale-sweatshirt

Beyonce, the entrepreneur, has started another business, this time with her trainer, Marco Borges. Together they have launched a vegan meal delivery service called “22 Days Nutrition.” The name comes from the common myth that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Last winter, under Borges’ direction, Beyonce and Jay-Z became vegan for 22 days and they loved it (although they don’t seem to be vegan now). Borges is the author of a soon to be released diet book titled, “The 22 Day Revolution.”

Their website describes the meals as fresh, wholesome, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free, as well as 100% organic and GMO-free. That’s a lot of buzz words and diet restrictions. The soy-free part is odd because vegans classically eat soybeans in the form of tofu, seitan, veggie burgers, meat analogues, and edamame.

A week’s worth of meals is delivered via a cooler placed at your front door. You just unpack, load the fridge, reheat, and eat. And pay the bill. At one meal-a-day, a one week supply costs $103.45, two meals-a-day goes for $153.46, and three meals for $194.04, all with a $19.95 shipping fee. Multiply that expense by three for a 21 day supply.

By Shae Blevins

The New Year is upon us and we’re sure that you’re ready to start the new diet and exercise plan you’ve been talking about since eating your fill (and then some) at Thanksgiving dinner.

A variety of celeb-backed options outrank more traditional approaches. The Paleo diet marks Jessica Biel amongst its followers. The “eating a spoonful of clay” diet favored by Shailene Woodley, of “The Fault in Our Stars.” And Zooey Deschanel, who has given up gluten.

There is also the super fit Matthew McConaughey, the ultra-fabulous Dita Von Teese, and The Queen and King — Beyonce and Jay Z — the sexy A-listers who have gone vegan by way of Mark Bittman’s VB6.

celebrity-diets

There’s been a heap of exciting, tragic, and inspiring celebrity news stories in 2014. We lost some too soon (Robin Williams), are sending some to prison (Teresa Giudice), and saw many bring new babes in to the world. We also saw some lose and gain, for better or worse. The year brought to light a new roll of celebrities who now have before and afters to show off.

For a montage you won’t likely see at the early January Golden Globes, we present the biggest and best celebrity diet and weight stories of 2014.

Kevin Smith

The famously silent director and actor dropped more than 20 pounds this year. Couple that with a clean-shaven face and he’s darn near unrecognizable. You’ll get a glimpse of his trimmer body and baby face in his new movie Yoga Hosers.

Biggest Loser experienced maybe their biggest controversy yet, when season 15 winner Rachel Frederickson came out on stage looking not quite as healthy as winners in the past. The Biggest Loser lost 60 percent of her body fat — a dangerously unhealthy final weight.

3 Body Image Power Songs Every Woman Needs to Hear (and Believe) Right Now

pretty hurts

Body image. Vanity. Hair and makeup. Scales. Self worth. Confidence.

Being a woman means carrying yourself a particular way in order to be deemed beautiful, also known as worthy, by societal standards. Any woman can tell you that she has come across these thoughts about herself, or shamefully, about someone else. There is nothing wrong with individuality. We are constantly told that it is OK to be different, that skinny does not always mean beautiful, that people will love you no matter what you look like. However, that message is not driven home on a grander scale–the media, magazines, actresses cast in roles. It is hard to be a woman, and frankly, it is hard to love ourselves.

Which is why it is incredible when songs like these come out and inspire us, remind us, that everyone’s beauty is different. Stop what you are doing and lift yourself up. We couldn’t love these messages more and will put these power songs on our playlist.

See How Beyonce and Jay Z are Fit Enough to be On the Run This Summer

Have you ever heard of a pop star called Beyoncé?

…just kidding. She is arguably the biggest pop and/or hip-hop star in the world who also happens to be married to one of the biggest and most respected rap artists / moguls in the world. “Power couple” does not even begin to describe these two.

In the past few months, the married parents of one announced that they would be going on tour together beginning this June 25. Beyoncé’s worldwide tour, “The Mrs. Carter Show,” just ended its run this past March, but if anyone can do two major tours in a year, it is Queen B. Since she is busy being a mom on top of everything else, one has to wonder how she has time to keep her ridiculously fit body in the shape it is currently in.

She has a few tips. Here we learn how to stay in shape while touring, mothering, wifing, and living — Beyoncé style.
