If 2013 was a slow year for you, you might remember that time Beyoncé went vegan. For a whole 22 days (that’s like 6 months in celebrity years), the badass, non-single lady cut out all animal products from her diet. According to a detailed meal plan released by her trainer, Bey sustained herself on things like chia seed pudding and veggie quesadillas. Just like Oprah and J-Lo before her, Queen B’s flirtation with veganism is over. But veganism is a way of life for these other celebrities who have shared some of their favorite recipes to help you stay vegan — for at least an entire month.
