R&B singer Summer Walker is on the brink of going back to her poultry and beef grind again. The popular crooner has come forward to share her experience going vegan and admitted the uphill challenge has her nearly ready to call it quits on the plant-based lifestyle.
Summer Walker’s Vegan PSA
Heading into Monday, Walker went to her social media pages to keep it 100 on what she’s putting into her diet. While she said the vegan journey is on the verge of ending, Summer did request for a last-minute Los Angeles vegan chef to come to the rescue.
“PSA. I need a vegan chef who is like literally amazing in LA and I need them to come save me and rescue me because I’m about to give up on my vegan journey. It’s nasty as h*ll, it’s disgusting, it’s miserable. I don’t know who lied to y’all and said it’s good because it’s not. And if somebody doesn’t give me a vegan meal that is properly seasoned and tastes delicious, I’m just gonna be a fat, chicken-eating, grease-slurping – I don’t want, we don’t need to talk about it, I don’t want to go there. Somebody please tag them. LA vegan chef. Please Lord, help me, save me.”
In 2019, reports surfaced about music icon JAY-Z becoming a central piece to Black-owned and vegan-friendly Partake Foods.
Jay-Z has clearly been busy. Not only did he join the billionaire’s club, but the venture capital (VC) fund he co-founded recently led the round for allergy-friendly food startup, Partake Foods. Partake Foods is a black-owned company that makes health-conscious food products. They recently closed a $1 million dollar round of seed funding. (Black Enterprise)
Partake Foods was expected to take its $1 million investment to help grow the brand and get its products placed into more retail stores.
The company currently offers sprouted grain chocolate mini cookies, double chocolate chip mini cookies, sweet potato millet mini cookies, and carrot oat mini cookies. All products are dairy free, non-GMO, nut-free and soy-free. (VIBE)
Wait, There’s More
In June 2019, various hip-hop entertainers including JAY’s former business partner Damon “Dame” Dash made public pushes for vegan lifestyles. Despite rap star Diddy‘s encouragement, Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane previously couldn’t stomach a vegan burger.
