Micro Greens a Staple of Jason Mraz's Vegan Diet
Jason Mraz loves micro greens so much that the singer-songwriter grows his own sprouts right on his tour bus.
The “I’m Yours” singer recently shared a photo of his sprouts with his Instagram followers.
The caption read, “Healthy, delicious Sprouts. From seed to snack in 5-7 days, in any season. So easy you can take them with you on tour.”
Mraz also lives on a farm that yields 30,000 pounds of avocados per year. Each day he saves 2 – 4 for himself and the rest are sold to the local Chipotle.
Back in 2012, when Mraz was four months into a strict plant-based diet, he wrote on his blog that he was “feeling stronger, fitter, healthier and more productive.”
“I ride longer distances on my bike, can do more pull-ups than ever, and my brain seems to have a larger capacity for new projects, problem solving, songwriting, and fielding random questions,” he continued. “My health and strength make me a better performer and all that combined gives me more confidence to go out in the world and shine my light. It also makes me a lot better in bed. Just sayin…”
With the first day of spring right around the corner, let’s take a cue from Mr. Jason Mraz and add some micro-greens into our diets.
