It cracks me up when people ask me if I have ‘low energy’ when I only eat raw foods! The opposite is the case! Raw foods give you practically endless energy and today’s guest is living proof. John Kohler is a public speaker, YouTuber, health coach, entrepreneur, gardener, and health enthusiast!
John was born with a variety of diseases and negative health conditions including allergies, asthma, dry skin and spinal meningitis. Eating a Standard American Diet (SAD) in combination with unfortunate genetic predisposition left John with the option of dying as a young man or changing his lifestyle. Fortunately he chose the latter and in his 20’s began to heal himself predominantly by eating a 100% raw living foods vegan diet.
Today John has two large home gardens in Nevada and California where he grows greens, vegetables and fruits. In addition John makes comprehensive and detailed YouTube video tutorials on a variety of topics from how to grow your own food, how to live on a fruit based diet, where to shop for nutrient quality, the benefits of raw cannabis, in a addition to interviews with professionals in the health and gardening world. John’s two most popular channels are “Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens” and “okraw“. The two channels together have over 300,000 subscribers and over 37 million views! John also runs the website DiscountJuicers.com which sells a variety of essential raw food kitchen appliances. John was recently profiled on the cover of the September/October issue of Countryside magazine which you can find at most large grocery stores nationwide!
In this conversation, recorded at the 2015 Woodstock Fruit Festival, John and I discuss the importance of growing your own food, the benefits of a fruit based diet, how to juice raw cannabis and the best super foods to include in your diet.
