Rap mogul Jay Z's promise to stick to a vegan-based diet has reportedly continued into the wekeend after he opted out of meat treats during a restaurant gathering with producer Timbaland.
According to reports, Young Hov and Tim both dined at a Vegas restaurant last night (December 13).
Jay Z continued his 22-day quest to eat an entirely vegan diet yesterday in Vegas ... and then partied his face off while paying tribute to Beyonce's new surprise album. Sources at Hakkasan restaurant tell us Jay dined on strictly vegan options after his concert ... while his friends -- including rapper/producer Timbaland -- ate crispy duck salad and roasted Chilean seabass. Afterward Jay and his entourage hit up Hakkasan's nightclub (pictured above) ... and toasted champagne to honor his wife Beyonce's surprise album when the DJ played their new collab "Drunk in Love."

Earlier this month, Jay celebrated his 44th birthday with Bey at a popular vegan-based restaurant.
It's only Day 1, but Beyonce and Jay-Z are serious as a heart attack about adopting a no-meat diet ... because they just pigged out at a classy vegan lunch joint in L.A. to celebrate Jay's 44th birthday. Bey and Jay ordered a variety of organic vegan menu items at Cafe Gratitude -- a place that touts its food and its people as "a celebration of our aliveness." B&J have said they're going on a 22-day plant-based diet to become more spiritual ... and they chose today -- Jay-Z's birthday -- as the day to start. (TMZ)
Young Hov broke the vegan diet news to fans via his Life + Times lifestyle website.
"Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way. On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a "plant-based breakfast" everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought... Why now? There's something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day...It just feels right!"

Jigga also revealed Beyoncé would take part in the challenge.
"So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress... Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha. I don't know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We'll see... Best of luck and health! P.S. B is also joining me. I will let my friend Marco explain the benefits of a plant based diet here." (Life + Times)Need something fun and interactive to do with your pals?
