Jay-Z Gets Veganism Mainstream Media Attention

Fox news posts health advice for readers following the famed rapper’s path to veganism.

Jay-Z’s 22-day vegan challenge has set the mainstream media abuzz with articles editorializing on and expounding upon the health benefits of plant-based diets. Health magazine recently posted an article on its website that gave cruelty-free novices advice on how to go vegan while maintaining one’s physical and mental well-being. The news source recommends that readers stick to unprocessed wholefoods, such as vegetables, fruits, quinoa, nuts, and beans, while avoiding unhealthy vegan grub such as potato chips and licorice. Health notes that one doesn’t need to eat animal products to get enough protein—lentils, quinoa, and pea-based protein powders will suffice, and for those who struggle to find edible options, veganizing a traditional omnivore meal or dining out at ethnic restaurants, can put one’s dietary woes at ease.
