Meet The Whole Food Dude. He’s one of the most entertaining and unique Healthy Eating advocates I’ve come across. We connected in Bali on an extremely unique and surprising basis…He also Raps! His first music, “Organic and I Know It” already has 6.5K views and is bound to skyrocket any day now. It’s hilarious and awesome. You’re going to love him. And he graced us with a special surprise, read on to see what it is!
If someone gave you 15 seconds to sell them on “The Whole Food Dude” what would you say?
That’s a tough one as my direction is constantly morphing. I’d go…
“Think Jamie Oliver… meets Jim Carrey…” I teach people how to transform their health with juicing, blending, fruits and vegetables and make them laugh in the process.
I know you love Green Smoothies and Juicing, but what else is your diet comprised of?
I eat a lot of carbohydrates. Sweet potato, potato, gluten free buckwheat pasta, brown rice. I’ll usually turn that into a huge salad and add things like lentils and superfoods to pump it up. My smoothies have everything the body needs – things like chia seeds, raw protein, flax, hemp seeds, superfoods, carbs, good fats, greens – you name it I chuck it in.
What would you make a girl for your first date?
A Green Juice for a Goddess and something with Raw Cacao. Chicks dig Raw Cacao.
What’s the most rewarding experience you’ve had since making healthy eating and living your work?
Bali. Meeting cool dudes like you into Raw Food & Rap. Eating the best food ever. My mum sending me photos of her morning green juice. Also seeing kids with Green Mo’s. Love that.
What was the most startling realization you’ve come to about food since you started eating healthy?
It is probably one of the greatest things ever invented, and it holds the key to changing the world.
What is the most important piece of advice would you give to people looking to improve their diet?
Start Green Juicing as soon as possible! Smoothies, Juices and Salads (oh my!) And… Connect to your Why? Why on earth would you want to start eating healthy? Why is it important to you? What drives you? What’s at stake for you? That will keep you on track, always.

Other than the Real Food Revolution, what can we look forward to seeing from The Whole Food Dude in 2014?
Real Food Raps. More Videos. Lots of eBooks. Another Bali trip. Would love to get on a talk show sometime too. That’d be heaps fun! Working with kids and getting them into healthy eating in a fun way. I am totally open to the divine plans too – will roll with it 🙂
If there was one seasonal fruit or veggie you could get Organic and You Knew It all year long, what would it be and what would you make with it?
Lebanese Cucumber. I LOVE cucumbers man! I’d eat it straight. Blend it. Juice it. They are literally the definition of FREESH.
Whose your favorite rapper? Rap song?
Damn this is a hard one! Choose my number 1 favourite rapper? Two of my favourites are definitely Guru & Eyedea. If you count WHY? As Indie rap, then count Yoni too.
Favourite rap song – “The Art of Fact” by The Art of Fact.
And now for the surprise. I asked Rory if he could drop a few well flows that are sweet like tangelos. And he did. They are so sweet.
