Beyoncé Launches Vegan Meal Delivery Service

Food

Beyoncé has been a health advocate for several years now. In 2011, she helped First Lady Michelle Obama with her Let's Move initiative by creating a dance workout video, "Move Your Body." In her music video, "7/11," she sports a sweatshirt with the word 'KALE' on it. Now the singer has partnered with her trainer, Marco Borges, to launch a new vegan meal delivery service, 22 Days Nutrition.

The meals are completely plant-based, made with organic ingredients, non-GMO, gluten free, soy free and dairy free and are delivered once a week. 

Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z took the 22 Days Nutrition Challenge in the winter of 2013, and since then, Beyoncé has incorporated more plant-based foods into her diet. The program's philosophy is based on the concept that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, and on the 22nd day you are well on your way to forming new habits.

They came up with the idea for the home delivery service because Borges' friends, colleagues and clients all wanted to eat the delicious meals he prepared. His vegan meals are "naturally low in fat, sugar and salt and filled with flavor from whole foods such as vegetables, beans, grains, herbs and spices." Borges and Beyoncé tout the home delivery program as a way to "take away all the guesswork and make it easy to adopt the plan."

"I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example," said Beyoncé. "He is the most energetic person I know and it's all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try. If I can do it, anyone can. I am excited to partner with him."

Borges said it's not about getting everyone to go vegan. It's about encouraging them to eat healthier foods that make them feel good and energized. "We all know the importance and value of eating plant-based foods but often times find ourselves trapped in a series of bad habits that sabotage optimum wellness," said Borges. "The Vegan Meal Delivery program makes it easier to reset your habits with healthy and delicious plant-based foods."

The meals are completely plant-based, made with organic ingredients, non-GMO, gluten free, soy free and dairy free and are delivered once a week, according to the 22 Day Nutrition Challenge website. There are three plans to choose from: 1 Meal A Day-lunch or dinner, 2 Meals A Day-lunch and dinner or 3 Meals A Day-breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Meals range from $9.76 to $16.50 per meal and can be ordered here.

Ethics investigations have been opened into the conduct of senior Trump appointees at the nation's top environmental agencies.

The two investigations focus on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler and six high-ranking officials in the Department of Interior (DOI), The Hill reported Tuesday. Both of them involve the officials' former clients or employers.

"This is demonstrative of the failures at the very top of this administration to set an ethical tone," Campaign Legal Center Ethics Counsel Delaney Marsco told The Washington Post of the DOI investigation. "When people come to work for government, they're supposed to work on behalf of the public. It's a betrayal of the public trust when senior political appointees seem to give privileged access to their former employers or former clients."

We've known for more than 50 years that smoking cigarettes comes with health hazards, but it turns out those discarded butts are harmful for the environment, too. Filtered cigarette butts, although small, contain dozens of chemicals, including arsenic and benzene. These toxins can leach into the ground or water, creating a potentially deadly situation for nearby birds, fish and other wildlife.

Five years ago this week, an emergency manager appointed by then-Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder made the devastating decision to save money by switching Flint's water supply over from Detroit's water system to the Flint River. Seen as a temporary fix, the new water supply was not properly treated. High levels of lead leached from the old pipes, poisoning a generation of Flint's children, and bacteria responsible for an outbreak of Legionnaires' Disease killed more than a dozen residents.
