Get Healthy and Live Tryin’
The newest rapper in da veggie club?
According to Vegetarian Star, Grammy winner and rap superstar 50 Cent is working to encourage healthy eating among children, and he just threw a picnic party in Queens for kids who chowed down on veggie burgers and whole-wheat pasta.
Given how many young people are already battling weight issues and poor health, serving veggie burgers rather than cholesterol-filled cow patties is a great way to get kids on the path to healthier lifestyles.
Eliminating cholesterol-laden animal products by going vegan is one of the easiest ways for people of all ages to reduce their risk of a number of health complications, from heart disease to diabetes. Is it possible that 50 Cent has joined the hip-hop ranks of Wu Tang Clan’s Masta Killa and gone vegetarian? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
