Raw Food Chef and Rapper Jonny Freesh: A 2-Book-Giveaway For Our Readers + His Chocolate and Vanilla Swirl Cake Recipe From The Book!

Guys, it’s party time!

There’s no other way but to start a blog post about Jonny Freesh. First, I must tell you that I’ve seen lots of crazy stuff in the vegan raw food world – but this has brought some real coolness to this movement. It’s hard to impress anyone with ‘healthy food’ and ‘right choices’ – it just ain’t groovy enough!

So what better way is there, then to combine raw food and Hip-Hop? Yeah, Jonny Freesh does that; he’s a rapper and a raw food chef, and I can’t really say what he does better – rappin’ or ‘cookin’.

In any case, he does an excellent job, and this is why we got together with him to share with you one of his dessert recipes, and a 2-book-giveaway of Jonny’s recipes (scroll down), which I’m sure will get you in the right mood to watch this video – but be careful of the subliminal messages – they might get you under his spell and convert you to a raw veggie – I’ve warned you!

So put your knives down and listen to this:
