Who is the Raw Chocolate Vegan?
Imagine for a moment this was your life: You wake up, and the first thing on your mind isn’t a sense of dread. Your family is a team trying to figure out how to make the world a less cruel reality and a healthier place for everyone. Your day is full of either working out in the gym or making plans with your fiancee and two children to go to the park and exercise-play in the warm Austin, Texas weather. And all the food you eat is raw.
This is a typical day in the life of Phillip Henderson, who is known more commonly on social media as The Raw Chocolate Vegan.
Henderson considers “The Raw Chocolate Vegan” to be his higher self; he just wants the world to be a better place full of love instead of hate. He is a public figure to many people — other vegans, bodybuilders, individuals looking for inspiration, and so much more. Even though his days are busy, he says that it doesn’t feel like it’s work when you’re sharing your passion.
When asked how he got started on this lifestyle journey, Henderson says his big sister Marquita and her husband guided him to the decision to go raw. After hearing them tell Henderson about plant-based foods and that human bodies aren’t means to consume any animal products, he went home and got rid of all his food with animal products.
Henderson has since decided to start a health coaching and personal training business with his fiancee, Indica Hanson. They have already started this joint business venture with the launch of their website, Raw Vegan Couple. Together, the duo shares their workouts, daily food journals, and even some helpful videos. Henderson explains that they want to change as many lives as they can, they want to save animals and the human race. “We have a world that needs to be saved.”
When asked if he had any suggestions for help for people looking to transition to a raw diet, he points them to his website, where there is a free guide for newbies to a raw lifestyle. “The best thing you can do is study and dive deep. Question everything. Don’t be afraid to learn new things and it’s ok to get out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid.”
