Beyoncé is set to return to the stage for the first time since giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir last summer when she performs at Coachella this April. And in preparation for what should be an epic comeback, the 36-year-old mother of three is turning her diet on its head.
She took to Instagram this past weekend to inform her fans that she’s getting ready for her Coachella performance by adopting a vegan diet, and they were welcome to do the same.
She wrote, “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!!” as the caption for a snapshot of an avocado, mint and pepper treat on bread as one of her first meals in her vegan diet:
The star tagged trainer and collaborator Marco Borges’ 22 Days Nutrition page, which provides plant-based recipes and meal plans for people looking to transform their bodies and overall health. Beyoncé encouraged her fans to check out the page and sign up for $14 a month or $99 a year. So what can people expect?
According to the site, membership into 22 Days Nutrition includes “support from food coaches seven days a week, recipes that fit each person’s unique lifestyle, grocery delivery across much of the US and so much more.” It’s meant to be the springboard into changing your health, as it takes 21 days to create a new and hopefully lasting habit.
The singer and husband Jay Z, 48, have tried the vegan diet together in the past, and in 2015, she spoke on the ways in which Borges’ 22 Days Nutrition helped her curb weight gain.
“I’m not naturally the thinnest woman. I have curves,” she said while speaking with Good Morning America at the time. “I have struggled since a young age with diets. Finding something that actually works and keeps the weight off has been difficult for me.”
As she shared, the benefits of the diet were greater than expected.
“I felt like my skin was really firm, a lot tighter than when I deprived myself of food and got the weight off fast — and the weight stayed off,” she said. And that’s probably why she’s at it again — two babies later. It’s clear the hard work, which has included SoulCycle classes before and after giving birth to the twins and dance rehearsals to supplement her cleaner diet, is already paying off:
