If you’re familiar with the beloved Yaje Popson and his social media alias @yajecado, you might have wondered about his heavy feed of Avocado related posts. Curious whether this was all just some online shtick, or if Yaje is really religious to the ‘cado, we hit him up to see if he’d share a meal featuring his signature fruit. We headed over to his East Village apartment, which was tinged with the scent of sage and covered wall to wall with cultural artifacts and souvenirs from all across the globe.

While we were chopping it up in the kitchen, we discovered that food is a serious subject for Yaje, who was brought up in a Hare Krishna household. He considers a good and healthy meal to be an important part of any healing and recovery process and broke down how he has grown to take care of himself through food.

Peep the vid to get motivated to cook something healthy for yourself tonight or just close the browser, forget you watched it and the hit Mcdonald’s for a Big Mac. We won’t judge you.
