You Can Now Eat Like Beyoncé With Her New Vegan Delivery Service
To ensure healthy eating runs the world, Beyoncé has teamed up with her exercise physiologist and trainer Marco Borges to launch an all-new home delivery service, 22 Days Nutrition. The plant-based meal plan is based on the philosophy 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 ones. Essentially, the program takes away the guesswork of eating healthy while making it simple for you to adopt a cleaner way of eating. We’re guessing 7/11 Slurpee runs aren’t included in the meal plans.
The meals are 100% plant-based and made with all organic ingredients, non-GMO, gluten free, soy free and dairy free and only ring in at $9-$17 per meal (the more you get, the cheaper they become ;) — breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The web-based service (fingers crossed for an app ASAP!) is pretty streamlined, here’s how it works: You select your meal plan of one to three a day, then sign up for five, seven or the whole 22 days of delivery. Then 22 Days Nutrition ships your meals anywhere in the US in a biodegradable insulated cooler. Every meal is inspired by dishes from all over the world and consist of a variety of beans, veggies, grains (quinoa is their fave), nuts, seeds and herbs + spices. No need to worry about getting all your daily essentials, as each plate is a perfect balance of protein, carbs and fat, with limited sugar + salt. Ummmm, we’re sold.
Beyoncé and Jay Z took on the 22 Days Vegan challenge in the winter of 2013 and have made the effort to include more plant-based foods in their diets since then. So while this program isn’t looking to make everyone a vegan, it is hoping to get people to make healthier food choices to live a more energetic and productive life. What we’re hearing is that 22 Days Nutrition is gonna Upgrade U. We’re in.

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
