Eat to thrive.
The Vega "Thrive Foods" Book applies Ironman Brendan Brazier's "Thrive" wellness philosophy to the fuel that we ingest while training. Using what he refers to as a Nutrient-to-Resource Ratio, Brazier explains the benefits to both our bodies and our world by using a plant-based diet to maximize the "health-boosting micronutrients from food while expending the smallest amount of each natural resource to do so."
"Thrive Foods" puts your health first in this equation, with a dietary philosophy designed to increase energy and strength while promoting healthy sleep and mental acuity. The book maps the nutrients your body needs and provides 200 nutritionally complete, super food-laden recipes to give you a strong base and teach you how to create your own "Thrive" recipes.
