Cliff Lipson/CBSEverybody wants a body like Beyonce and perhaps if we eat like her, we too can achieve her physique. Her trainer, Marco Borges, is giving fans an inside scoop on what her vegan menu consists of in his new book, The 22-Day Revolution.
According to Billboard, Borges reveals that Bey and her husband Jay Z start their day with chia pudding with berries. “This is loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids,” says Borges. “The chia seeds are hygroscopic, meaning they absorb water, which is essential for fat metabolism.”
In the afternoon, the power couple chow down on thin-crust pizza. “The crust is made with tapioca and brown-rice flour, so it’s gluten-free,” he says. “And it’s topped with cashew cheese, which is delicious and really filling.”
To cap off the day, they enjoy quinoa-stuffed peppers. “On average, Americans consume twice as much protein as they need, but not nearly enough fiber,” says Borges. “Things like quinoa are actually a complete source of protein, and when coupled with beans, you have an incredible power punch of nutrients.”
Fans can also access Borge’s home delivery program, which provides three plans to choose from, all of which include organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free ingredients. Meals range from $9.76 to $16.50 each and can be ordered via 22DaysNutrition.com.
