How Grammy-Winning Musician Jason Mraz Helped his Bandmate Kick Type 2 Diabetes
The testimonial that is the subject of today’s post came to me from out of the blue. I had just been to a concert with my children, featuring a group of awesome female singers a few summers ago (Colbie Caillat, Christina Perry, and Rachel Platten). One of the singer/songwriters, Colbie Caillat, sang a “duet” on stage, with a streaming video image of her friend, two-time Grammy award winner, singer/songwriter Jason Mraz. His songs are big hits, and the duet he sang (via streaming video) with Colbie Caillat that night at the outdoor concert was a song called “Lucky”.
Jason Mraz’s duet with Colbie Caillat, “Lucky”:
Just by chance, several days after the concert, I was looking at avocado recipes online, and one of the recipes showed, simply, “Jason Mraz” as the author of the recipe (small font, no photo, no biography, no social media links, no website link).
I wondered… is this recipe author the same Jason Mraz who is the Grammy award winning singer/songwriter? Whose performance I had just enjoyed in his duet with Colbie Caillat at an outdoor summer concert with my children?
It seemed unusual that a successful, mega star musician — he’s sold over 7 million CDs and won two Grammy Awards – would be writing recipes on the side.
It also seemed odd that a recipe website was not in some way highlighting the celebrity status of their — famous — recipe author (with his photo or at least a link to his website, social media, etc).
As it turns out, yes, Jason Mraz, the recipe author, also is Jason Mraz the mega star musician/singer/songwriter.
Then I searched for articles/interviews about him to learn more about how it happens that a two-time Grammy award-winning musician also is writing and publishing healthy recipes online on the side (when he’s not busy recording millions-selling music albums), without any fanfare or credit on the recipe (just his name as the author in small font).
Jason Mraz has created lots of delicious avocado-based recipes (including his recipe for “Chocomole,” a creamy avocado chocolate pudding, below). He also has an avocado orchard and vegetable farm at his home in California.
In articles/interviews with Jason Mraz, he also has described his first-hand observations about the power of whole food plant-based foods to reverse type 2 diabetes naturally.
Jason Mraz’s bandmate was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and kicked Type 2 Diabetes in less than 30 days (!) by switching to eating delicious whole food plant-based foods.
I did not expect my search for avocado recipes to lead me to discovering an interview article, in which Jason Mraz discusses how one of his band members was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and how he reversed type 2 diabetes in less than 30 days — while on the road on Jason Mraz’s music concert tour — simply by switching to eating delicious whole food plant-based foods!
In the interview, Jason emphasized how it’s tough, especially on the road, to eat healthfully. When Jason Mraz performed on a concert bill touring with the Rolling Stones, contrary to the rock legends’ legendary hard-partying reputation, he was impressed that Mick Jagger and band mates took good care of themselves.
Jason was inspired to stop smoking cigarettes, especially since after stopping smoking he felt so much better, and had more energy for surfing. It also gave him more energy to start running and working out. Subsequently one of Jason Mraz’s band members was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but (with Jason’s help and support) he quickly took action to turn it around. Jason’s band member was fortunate that his doctor explained that he could reverse the type 2 diabetes through excellent whole food plant-based nutrition.
Jason supported his band mate by hiring a personal chef to make healthy plant-based food for the band while on Jason Mraz’s music tour. In solidarity, Jason supported his band mate by eating the same way, and he talks about how his band mate quickly was able to REVERSE his type 2 diabetes through whole food plant-based nutrition, in less than 30 days, even while on the road on tour with Jason Mraz’s band.
Jason’s band mate was fortunate that his doctor showed him the light (i.e., that he could reverse type 2 diabetes naturally with a whole food plant-based nutrition).
With that information (the knowledge that type 2 diabetes can be reversed naturally by switching to whole food plant-based nutrition) Jason’s band mate CHOSE to reverse his type 2 diabetes. He CHOSE to switch to whole food plant-based nutrition to reverse his type 2 diabetes, rather than continuing to eat the standard American diet and whatever came his way while on the road with Jason Mraz’s band on tour.
As Jason described it: “We decided to bring a chef out on tour with us for 30 days and go vegetarian and raw to see what would happen. And I mean, a dramatic transformation. Not just in weight loss, but in overall health and energy. And then no trace of diabetes.”
Now Jason Mraz continues on the whole food plant-based path, and he brings his Vitamix with him everywhere. He has an organic avocado farm at his home near San Diego, where he also grows Meyer lemons, pomegranates, guavas and mangoes, kale and lots of delicious things. He uses organic/green natural methods to battle pests that come after his veggies. He grows food that local restaurants use, and he donates fresh produce to local food banks and soup kitchens.

Jason Mraz’s Delicious Recipes
When he was asked about raw desserts and his “Chocomole” recipe in a Vegetarian Times interview, Jason explained: “I discovered that I could truly kick sugar when I started to satisfy my sweet tooth with raw desserts.”
In the Vegetarian Times interview he also mentioned that he’s a fan of the Vita-Mix 4500, which is great for making all kinds of healthy, delicious smoothies, raw deserts, soups and much more.
When asked how he sticks to healthy whole plant-based diet while he’s on the road on concert tours for months at a time, Jason replied, “I travel with … a Vita-Mix 4500 blender. I love my Vita-Mix blender.”
