The Thrive Diet Book Coming Soon – Pre Orders Now

thrive diet book brendan brazier The Thrive Diet Book Coming Soon   Pre Orders Now

My new book called the Thrive Diet will be published in Canada in March by Penguin Canada. It will be published in the US in October. However, it may now be pre-ordered on Amazon.ca

In the book I make the case that excess stress is the root cause for most all disease, cravings, poor sleep quality, fatigue, signs of premature aging and even obesity. Its reduction can have a profound affect on vitality as a whole. Eating mostly raw plant-based whole foods in place of standard refined ones can help reduce biological workload and therefore decrease stress and its debilitating affects.

It’s classified as a “diet” book, but is really a lifestyle program. It includes 75 balanced whole food, plant-based recipes as well as recipes for sport drinks, energy gels and post exercise recovery smoothies.

Unlike most “diet” books the Thrive Diet includes a chapter that addresses the huge environmental strain of food production and delivery. In fact, food production and its transportation is the number-one draw on fossil fuel, more so than any other industry. Therefore it is the greatest contributor to artificial global warming. “The Thrive Diet for a Healthy Environment” chapter explains how we can significantly reduce our personal appetite for fossil fuel by shifting to a plant-based diet.

Fuel for the Road

brendan brazier coolguy Fuel for the Road Photographer: G Monkie (CC), The Thrive Diet was created by Brendan Brazier

I just got back home to Vancouver from 3 ½ weeks on the road. One week in Toronto and 2 ½ in LA. It was a great trip. During my time in Toronto I spoke at the Holistic World Expo. Held at the convention center, as expected it produced a good turn out. Then, on to Anaheim for the official US launch of VEGA. Expo West is the largest natural products expo in the world, held in Anaheim each year. The rest of the trip was spent in the LA area, visiting friends, working on projects and helping to get VEGA established. I did a few demos at Erewhon, a large well-know health food store in LA.

India Arie Parties with Raw Chocolate!

ari001 India Arie Parties with Raw Chocolate!

I keep hearing about these raw chocolate parties everywhere now. Now 3 time Grammy nominated artist, India Arie said at The Roots Pre-Grammy 2007 Jam that she just went to one too. I have yet to go to one, although they sound wonderful. I love chocolate! I wonder if everything they serve at these parties includes chocolate in it, including all the drinks and all the food and deserts. Chocolate Martini anyone? India also said that her entire diet is Organic. Lots of recipes in GreenChefs feature raw chocolate in them. You can buy raw cacao nibs (cocoa) or powder online or at Whole Foods Markets.

Here is a little bit of information online on cacao and raw chocolate:

Hamadi: Tested on Actresses; Never on Animals

hamadi makeup Hamadi: Tested on Actresses; Never on AnimalsWith a star-studded resume and a favorite for fashion shows, founder and creator Jamal Hammadi certainly has the experience to create a hair care brand. Filled with deliciously organic essential oils, Hamadi products are frequently featured in magazines all over the States. In just the past two months, I’ve seen their Shea Hair Mask featured in three different publications, making me want to eagerly fork over the dough for some. Within their online store, all ingredients for their creations are openly posted (something I wish all “natural” brands did). Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
