What is Your GREENPRINT?
I am so happy Beyonce is speaking out about the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet.
After watching countless documentaries (see below) over the years about food health and the toll that raising animals for mass consumption are taking on the environment, I have decided to adopt somewhat of a plant-based diet.
It wasn’t easy, because I got super ambitious from the start and quickly realized that with my ever changing schedule, I wasn’t going to be able to maintain a full time plant based diet so I became a self proclaimed flexitarian.
I decided to dedicate five days out of the week to MOSTLY plant-based meals and gave myself the option to eat meat two days out of the week. This is what works best for me.
Alongside Nutritionist Marco Borges, Beyonce and Jay-Z have co-created 22 Days Nutrition - a plant-based meal delivery program.
The new initiative features web-based digital tool “The Greenprint Project” that illustrates the positive environmental impact of choosing plant-based meals and engages users with an opportunity to win free lifetime tickets to Beyoncé and Jay-Z concerts.
UM HELLO! The fact that Beyonce and Jay-Z plan on performing for the rest of our lives more than enough reason to dedicate at least one plant-based meal to your life.
