When it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, many of Us like to adopt clean eating practices and physical activity into our routines. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have famously pledged a vegan lifestyle and now they are inviting the world to make the switch!

The Carters recently dished on their vegan lifestyle in the introduction to the book, The Greenprint, by Beyoncé’s trainer, Marco Borges. The couple shared the importance of focusing on wellness and our duty to preserve the planet.

“We want to challenge you, as we challenge ourselves, to move toward plant-based foods,” the pair wrote. “We all have a responsibility to stand up for our health and the health of the planet. Let’s take this stand together. Let’s spread the truth. Let’s make this mission a movement. Let’s become ‘the Greenprint.'”

This book features multiple guides that map out ways to improve our health and nurture the environment. With many years of experience working with celeb clients and conducting nutrition research, Borges has developed helpful tips for improving our lives overall, boosting your energy and helping the environment all with the food we choose to consume.

This is not the first time we’ve heard of the couple adopting the vegan lifestyle! Jay-Z, 49, shared on his blog that the pair fully committed to the plant-based diet back in 2013 after consulting with Borges.

“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,” the rapper shared. “This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a ‘plant-based breakfast’ every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought.”

Last March, Beyoncé also posted an open invitation to her fans on Instagram to join a 22-day challenge as she prepared for her 2018 Coachella performance.
