Beyonce is “Crazy in Love” with veganism! In December, the pop star and her hubby Jay Z quit all animal-based products for 22 days and now she’s at it again.
Queen Bey, who now rocks a size two, took to her Instagram account last week to share what she’s snacking on these days. She posted a photo of a vegan protein bar and banana slices with the caption “#22daysvegan.”
Beyonce is the only Hollywood star bit by the vegan bug. Actress and “The Talk” host Sheryl Underwood is on to the new trend al well. During a recent episode of the CBS talk show, she announced her plans to quit meat and dairy for the month of February.
“I’m not trying to be trendy and my goal is not to give up meat forever, but I want a lifestyle change,” Underwood told with TV Guide. “I want to lower my blood pressure and jump-start my metabolism—and do it all naturally. People think I picked February to go vegan because it’s the shortest month. No! I’m doing it as a Valentine to me!”
She went on to outline her new diet plans: “Substituting olive oil for butter, eating less meat, cutting down on processed food or eating more whole foods so it won’t be cold turkey. But I want this to be fun so I am not giving up alcohol!”
She added that the lifestyle change has other great perks as well. “When you’re a vegan, you lose weight, right?” she said.

Bey & Jay's Most Non-Vegan Moments
1. Bey & Jay Go Vegan
Beyonce & Jay Z's 22-day vegan stint basically means they will be seen around town, eating lettuce, sipping beet, carrot, ginger juices while being photographed coming out of the trendiest vegan eateries, wearing the latest is exotic animal fabrics. How very vegan of the wealthy lovebirds. While I appreciate Bey & Jay's efforts, I laugh at their display of such lifestyle. Check out their most non-vegan moments.
2. Where's The Beef, Bey?
Beyonce and Jay have been gallivanting around town, eating at vegan restaurants, but Bey decided she'd rock a cow printed top and leather leggings.
3. Jay Z Sure Must Be Warm
But fur isn't a vegan's choice of fabric.
4. Symbolism Or Not...
This lion is not getting paid. That ain't vegan!
5. Yes Beyonce, You're The Queen & King
But you don't need to prove it with cruelty to animals.
6. Tell PETA Bey's Mink...
Doesn't hang to the floor. The shorter length isn't less non-vegan, but it's a step in the right direction, I'm sure.
7. Sasha Sure Does Look Fierce
At the expense of making these two gators look like they're in pain.
8. That Poor Horse
While Bey bathes in peace, the horse has to fear what's to come...Bey & her whip!
9. Giddy Up Bey
That horse looks like he's ready to defend himself.
10. Beyonce's Bespoke Animal Sneakers
Beyonce's Isabel Marant-inspired shoes are a rich display of exotic materials that could be used to make one expensive pair of shoes. Made from crocodile and anaconda skins, stingray, ostrich and calf hair, these Perfectly Made Kicks (PMK) brought Bey a lot of PETA flack. Maybe that's why she's gone vegan--her guilt for her love of fine fabrics.
11. Jay Likes Exotic Fabrics Too
Jay's Brooklyn Zoo kicks cost $2500 and have a mixture of stingray, anaconda, ostrich, crocodile, calf, alligator, boa, python, lizard, and perhaps most maddening of all, elephant.
12. Beyonce On A Horse
One could easily call this love and/or affection, but to me, it's objectifying the poor horse. Not very vegan of you Bey.
13. Iguana & Python Fabrics?!
Beyonce is known for her fearless fashion choices and one choice she loves to make is rocking exotic fabrics. I'd say killing poor iguanas and pythons to make your Superbowl costume is soooo not vegan.
14. Wearing Fur
No matter how many vegan eateries Beyonce fabulously blows into--like Kenya Moore's wind--wearing fur still isn't very vegan of you Bey.
15. Eating Fried Chicken Courtside
No one goes to a basketball game and requests a veggie platter. You murder that fried chicken Beyonce and we're here for Jay Z holding it for you.
