Moby credits a green smoothie with still being alive after his party-hard lifestyle
Moby: “Offsetting the vodka and cocaine I was putting in my system every night.”
Ever since the release of his autobiography Porcelain earlier this month, Moby has been candid about his once-extreme lifestyle.
The LA-based electronic musician revealed that he had even concocted an “elaborate green smoothie” to negate his party-hard ways.
“I’ve been sober for eight years now, but back when I was a crazy, dysfunctional alcoholic, I used to have this same smoothie every morning as a way of offsetting the vodka and cocaine I was putting in my system every night,” the 50-year-old told The New York Post.
“I think it might have been one of the only things that kept me from dying. It’s about as nutritious and complete as anything could possibly be, with various greens, anti-oxidants, healthy omega-3 fats and more fibre than your average person in Tulsa, Oklahoma probably eats in a lifetime.”
To recreate the ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’ singer’s daily drink, mix parsley, kale, a little broccoli raab, a banana, mixed berries, cranberries, flaxseed, chia seeds and DHA [omega-3] oil into a blender.
The self-confessed health food junkie, also extols the virtues of organic white peony tea, explaining: “The tea plant has anti-oxidants, catkins and polyphenols that are really remarkable and don’t exist anywhere else.
“I’m such a fan that I used to co-own, with an ex-girlfriend, a little tea shop on Rivington Street on the Lower East Side called TeaNY, but it closed last year.”
Moby previously told Digital Spy about the shuttering of his New York café: “I learned that I’m a terrible businessman.
“When public figures think they can open a business even though they’ve got no business experience, it’s a bad idea.”
