Barack Obama recently celebrated his 60th birthday in an incredible fashion, as reported by guests. (weren’t we not supposed to have agglomerations?).

The birthday party occurred at Martha’s Vineyard last weekend and it was set to have at least one menu made from some of the world’s leading brands.

The former US President celebrated his birthday last Wednesday. It came at the same time as the news told us that the Met Gala was going this year too.

Bloomberg News spoke about the party with some of the guests close to the event, who preferred to remain their identity incognito. 

Grammy Award-winning musician Questlove suggested the menu. It was reported that it featured  Questlove’s Cheesesteak Eggrolls, made Impossible Foods’ beef, and Perfect Day’s sauce.

In the menu, we found Spam Musubi, made with Impossible Foods’ beef and pork, and Eat Just’s vegan egg.

It wasn’t clear if it was a completely different meat-based menu for the event, which originally included hundreds of guests. But due to concerns for the delta variant,  only very close friends and family were invited.

According to a host of news outlets, the guest list featured some of the Obamas’ preferred artists including  John Legend, Chrissy Teigan, as well as Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Is Barack Obama vegan?, well the former President of the US is neither nor vegetarian. Despite his wife and former First Lady Michelle Obama is an advocate of healthy eating and lifestyle. For example, she launched the Let’s Move! campaign, which focussed on transforming nutrition education in Schools and High-Schools to encourage exercise to tackle childhood obesity.

In addition, Obama has spoken out about ‘respecting’ those on a meatless in the past.

In 2017, he said: “What is true is I am not a vegetarian. I respect vegetarians, but I am not one of them.”
