"Former Ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier is nothing short of a phenomenon. Not only did he show the world that professional athletes can excel on a vegan diet, he is the creator of the Vega line of plant-based nutrition products. When thumbing through his brand-new Thrive Energy Cookbook
(Brazier's fourth book), I was astounded by the quality of his 150 whole-food recipes--which include a delightful chia seed blueberry pudding, a sumptuous yellow peanut curry rice bowl, and a mouthwatering strawberry-goji berry dark chocolate cheesecake. I want it all."
