Jay Z and Beyoncé go vegan for the holidays; should you?

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé are powering through the next 22 days on a cleansing vegan diet. They say it's a "spiritual and physical cleanse." Veganism is a plant-based diet, so no animal products. No meat no fish.

Nutritionist Lisa Moskovitz says that while cleansing can be healthy, and a vegan diet too, there are risks because of the need for certain vitamins. So, vegans often take supplements.

Kevin Villavicencio works at Health Smart, a health food market in Murray Hill. He says he goes vegan every couple months. He says it can be an expensive diet.

I tried a couple difference vegan specialties at Health Smart, including the tofu and bok choi stew. Not bad. And for someone like me who has high cholesterol, probably not a bad diet for the future.

Sounds like a good New Year's resolution.
