Mr. A to Z, otherwise known as singer Jason Mraz, just posted some pics and a healthy dose of raw foods praise on his MySpace page. Citing the need for an extreme amount of energy while on tour, the 30-year-old delves into the whys and hows of his diet — all the while posting pics, including one of him in a speedo holding a knife, and looking like Hugh Grant in the morning. Here’s what J had to say: 

On his healthy green machine: “I also bring along a Vita-Mix blender, a powerhouse of a tool. I start each day with a crazy ass Superfood Smoothie that most people refer to as, the Green Sludge.”

On what’s in his fridge: “Super Greens, Hemp Protein, Goji Juice, Coconut Water, Flax Seed Oil, My own homemade cashew milk, Raw Cacao, Bee pollen, sometimes a banana, a little crushed ice, toad knuckles, agave nectar, Stevia, and/or Natural Vaginal Juices to sweeten to your liking. All this stuff is checked at the airport in what I like to call my “Movable Feast,” a handy box that puts the kit in kitchen. I update the staples when I need to, about every two weeks. But the salad fixins are refreshed daily.”

On eating healthy: “If it seems costly it’s not. I think about the cost my body pays for eating processed food and immediately I’m happy about the investment of time finding these natural alternatives. ALTERNATIVES? How did we let nature’s supply take a back seat and become so hard to reach? You are what you eat. And since April 1st, this has been an experiment worthy of the effort. My trusty sidekick, Toca Rivera, has also been eating this way, relying only on raw and natural foods. We started this diet when Toca discovered he was Diabetic. But now, thanks to eating REAL food, his numbers are closer to normal and soon his blood tests will not reveal any sign of Diabetes.”

On maintaining the super-green diet: “I will likely keep this up for a long time. I don’t crave any other foods anymore. Anything processed just doesn’t seem real. I may as well eat cardboard if it has the same nutritional value. And I’ll keep getting creative with food. That’s the best part. I’m starting to see myself in the meals I make. And I have no trouble spending hours in the grocery store reading the labels and talking with other customers. Plus, hot girls fresh from yoga hang out in natural food stores. And I suspect they’re horny. More and more people are getting excited about health and we’re all tired of being offered cheap replicas of food. We want change and we believe we CAN have it.”

    I admire Jason musically and lifestyle-istically. I’m in the entertainment and health-inspiration field myself and feel we’ll be following up our first film (in the website I gave for this comment) with more music and talent-filled real stories about people healing and transitioning to a more positive way of being, with all the aspects of the human journey involved. Thanks EcoRazzi, thanks Jason Mraz. Definitely all be in touch!

    I admire Jason :) After living with a stepdad for 10 years who was obsessed with growing his own food and being vegetarian my views about the food industry have changed A LOT. I agree with him about the “alternative” healthy diet. We should eat what we have rather than process chemicals into what we call food.

    OK, this is pretty cool! My 3 oldest kids get to download a song a week from itunes. They usually have about 4 or 5 songs that they listen to in rotation all day long for about a month and then they shift, etc…Well, the one that caught my ear this time was Jason Mraz’ I’m Yours – and I even mentioned the song in my Daily Raw Inspiration newsletter because the words are so inspiring, especially about opening up your plans and becoming free – so true! – Reminds me of the 4 hr. work week book – …Anyway, then I heard that I’m Yours won song of the year at the Grammy’s!!! THEN, today, we found out Jason Mraz is a raw vegan!! My kids are in awe and amazement! We are raw vegans and it is just so inspiring to see someone changing the vibration of the planet with music and then learning that part of that consciousness may have resulted from this really special diet! Yay Jason! Will you be a Raw Spirit Fest in Santa Barbara? Hope to see you there!

    He said ” Stevia, and/or Natural Vaginal Juices” or is that a typo?
