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.

They're going whole hog, too ... ordering drinks made of apples, beets, lemon and ginger ... and entrees including marinated kale salad, Indian curried lentils and corn tacos with chipotle butternut squash.

They also discovered they're not alone on their journey ... 'cause Anne Hathaway and Ariana Grande were also at the restaurant at the same time vegging out.

Jay and Bey topped off their lunch with a dessert -- a chocolate truffle -- but there were no birthday candles and no birthday singing.  They're probably saving that for the party.

Hey Jay Z, here is a way to become more spiritual; Stop letting your pocketbook dictate right vs. wrong when your rich business partners profile young black kids. You know, the same young black kids that bought your music and made your azz a ka-billionaire. How about standing up for them??

STFU    

who cares what this lowlife is dieting on. J is, nothing but an uncle T looking out for his own pockets at the expense of pitching his worthless products and N calling rap music to poor and uneducated blacks.

bad enough , his wife is a uneducated HS dropout that doesn't have sense to do anything by herself.
at the end of the day karma is a mofo.

FACT: a diet high in fat (including animal fats) is much healthier than a vegetarian diet.

Are u sick of being fat? Stop eating sugar and Google the word keto...

Aliveness? That's not a word, not to say those two would know any different.

Plant-based diet to become more "spiritual"? What a load of crap. I live in Asia and we just call that eating.
