What do actor Hugh Jackman and Olympic gold medal triathlete Simon Whitfield have in common? They're believers in Brendan Brazier, a winning athlete who's also become a leader in empowering others to benefit from a plant-based diet for health and weight loss. Hugh even authored the preface to one of Brendan's books: "Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Life" (click for more information).
To discover how so many celebrities, athletes and consumers have benefited from Brendan's "Thrive" philosophy, we interviewed him about his newest book: "Thrive Energy Cookbook: 150 Plant-Based Whole Food Recipes" (click for details).
By following a plant-based diet, you take in "more usable energy from eating foods that are in a natural, whole state, even if they have fewer calories," explained Brendan, who also authored "Thrive Foods: 200 Plant-Based Recipes for Peak Health."
"In terms of weight loss, when you are eating less processed foods, and more fruits and vegetables, you will be fueling your body with the right nutrients, instead of fake sugars and toxic chemicals."
As a result, your body processes food more easily, without the insulin spikes that occur when you consume processed foods high in refined starches and sugar.
In addition to weight loss, Brendan says that you will improve your recovery time from workouts, reduce inflammation, sleep better and prevent multiple diseases by following his plant-based diet approach.
With 150 plant-based, nutrient-dense, whole food recipes, the Thrive Energy Cookbook will convince even steak lovers that vegan meals can taste fabulous. In addition to being vegan, all the recipes are either allergen-free or have gluten-free items.
Recipes featured include Vanilla-Almond-Mocha Motivator Smoothies, Roasted Red Pepper & Sweet Potato Soup, Thai Green Curry Rice Bowl, and desserts such as Raspberry Chocolate Pomegranate Tart. Learn more and get the "Thrive Energy Cookbook: 150 Plant-Based Whole Food Recipes" now by clicking here.
