What impact do food choices have on your health?  Have you ever been curious as to where your food came from, who grew it, and the path it took to get to your table?  Have you ever wondered how much of each natural resource was used to produce your food - in other words, the soil-to-table environmental cost?  In Whole Foods to Thrive, Brendan Brazier clearly explains how nutrient-dense, plant-based foods are the best choice - not only for your health, but also for the health and sustainability of the planet. 

Versatile and packed with flavour, whole foods have an abundance of health benefits for those who want sustainable energy, high-quality sleep, physical strength, and mental sharpness.  Whole Foods to Thrive builds upon Brendan's stress-busting, energy-boosting approach to nutrition and food introduced in his acclaimed bestseller The Thrive Diet, and includes 200 delicious, easy-to-make, plant-based recipes that are all allergen-free and contain no wheat, yeast, gluten, soy, dairy, or corn.  It features recipes such as:

  • Gorilla Food Green Tacos
  • Quinoa Falafels
  • Indian-Spiced Lentil Hemp Burgers
  • Maple Crispy Rice Treats

Editorial Reviews

"[Whole Foods to Thrive] offers a diet that's good for you and the planet." - Washington Post "Brazier drills deep and delivers surprising news and statistics on the eating and production of food and how one person can make a big difference by eating plant-based meals." - Vancouver Sun "[Whole Foods to Thrive] will have you and your family brimming with energy and health." - Reader's Digest * "This book will appeal to not only athletes and vegetarians but anyone who is concerned with eating to reduce personal and environmental stress. It is like a cup of Fast Food Nation in a bowl of Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health - i.e., a fascinating read featuring excellent recipes based on highly palatable nutritional science." - Library Journal (*starred review)"Brendan's book clearly shows that choosing to eat plants instead of animals is not only the best thing you can do for your own health, but also for the health of the planet. Thrive Foods keeps me healthy and performing at my best, even throughout the longest of tours." - Moby"Drawing from studies preformed by top international organizations, Brendan cuts through the clutter. Putting information into clear and relatable terms, he effectively illustrates the easiest, most immediate, and dramatic form of activism we can all participate in: choosing our food." - Elizabeth J. Kucinich, Director: Government Affairs, PCRM"In Whole Foods to Thrive Brendan makes the art of healthy eating and the concept of a nutrient dense diet easy to understand and compelling to follow. A must read." - Terry Tamminen, Former Chief Policy Advisor to Governor Schwarzenegger"The world needs to move away from meat. As Brendan Brazier so convincingly shows, a plant-based diet is better for the planet and better for human health. His wonderfully inventive vegan recipes give us food that is both nutritious and inviting." - Chris Goodall, bestselling author of How to Live a Low Carbon Life “I am forever grateful to this book and to Brendan . . .I have noticed increased energy and more restful sleep. My desire for sugar and salt is waning, and what’s more, I am following [these] recipes, and loving them.” - Hugh Jackman, Actor“Brendan’s knowledge is second to none.” - Simon Whitfield, Olympic Gold Medalist (triathlon, Sydney, 2000)
