Meet Christopher MacFarlane, aka Macka B, an accomplished British reggae artist and activist. He's been making music for more than 30 years in both the U.K. and Jamaica — and he also happens to be a very passionate vegan.
If you need proof of Macka B's love for all things plant-based, look no further than his 2011 jam "Wha Me Eat." In response to the people who questioned his plant-based diet, Macka B uses "Wha Me Eat" to list off all the yummy fruits, veggies, and other superfoods that vegans can grub on. And as humorous as it might sound, it's actually pretty darn catchy.
Since releasing that full-length vegan anthem, Macka B has taken to his Facebook page to continue spreading the vegan message. In two weekly video series (Medical Mondays and Wha Me Eat Wednesdays, in case you were wondering), the reggae artist features different fruits, veggies, grains, and other superfoods in short minute-long raps, (literally) singing their praises and drawing attention to their many health benefits.
Take this week's Medical Monday video, for example, in which Macka B lauds the good ol' cucumber for its energizing, skin-replenishing, and kidney-cleansing benefits:
There's also his Wha Me Eat Wednesday video about quinoa:
And his videos about kale and our favorite green fruit, the avocado, are pretty amazing, too:
Long story short? Macka B just really loves fresh produce, and he thinks you should, too. And if this is the soundtrack to a plant-based diet, we just might have to give it a try.
