Jay Z and Beyonce are going vegan ... for 22 days

Jay Z and Beyoncé are two of the latest celebrities taking the plunge into a vegan lifestyle. The rapper announced on his lifestyle blog that he and his wife would embark on a 22-day vegan challenge Tuesday, one day before his 44th birthday.

Jay Z began eating a plant-based breakfast every day a few months ago after a challenge from a vegan friend. He called the experience "surprisingly easier on me than I thought."

"There's something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge," wrote Jay Z. "22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day...It just feels right." 

He said he'd post on his progress and asked any professional vegans that know of "great food spots" to please make recommendations. 

Will Jay Z and Beyoncé continue their vegan lifestyle post-holidays? Only time will tell, but the rapper is wishing everyone "best of luck and health."
