My coworker has a huge soft spot for Jason Mraz. She even said that, when she gets married, “Lucky,” his duet with Colbie Caillet, will be played. I can’t argue. Mraz has been on my playlist since the man busted out The Remedy (I Won’t Worry).

So how did I not know that he was vegan? I stumbled upon his page on Wikipedia after reading a brief blurb on the recent end of his engagement with Tristan Prettyman. I’m sure some people sighed and some yelped. To each their own.

To each their own in their veg*n ways; every little bit helps the animals, planet, and ourselves. In a 2009 interview with Vegetarian Times magazine, the busy musician admitted that his diet is roughly 3/4 raw vegan. His Achilles’ heel? Soup.
