We could all use more energy in our lives and as much as I wish a big bag of chocolate did that....alas, it will not work. Thrive Energy Cookbook by Brendan Brazier has been one books I have yet to stop opening. The recipes are amazing and because they are plant-based whole food, they are good for you.
Packed with 150 plant-based, nutrient-dense, whole food recipes developed within the Thrive nutritional philosophy, brings concepts that started the functional, plant-based nutrition revolution to life. Recipes are all vegan and allergen-free (or with gluten-free options) to eliminate wheat, yeast, gluten, soy, refined sugar, and dairy from your diet.
Easy-to-make and performance-enhancing, these chef-created recipes merge purpose driven functionality (every ingredient has a nutritional purpose) with mouth-watering appeal. From the alkaline-forming, plant protein–packed Vanilla-Almond-Mocha Motivator Smoothie to Roasted Red Pepper & Sweet Potato Soup, Thai Green Curry Rice Bowl, and desserts such as Raspberry Chocolate Pomegranate Tart, will have you quickly preparing nutrient-packed and delicious dishes.
Thrive Energy Cookbook is a book where I began by marking pages of recipes I wanted to try and had to stop because each page was marked! I have been enjoying the Chia Blueberry Pudding for breakfast each morning. The Nutty Seed Cupcakes are perfect for an afternoon snack or even enjoy half as a treat. They are rich and amazing! The Chocolate Chia Ice Cream with Blueberry topping is so delicious it is hard to eat in moderation.
The foods in Thrive Energy Cookbook fuel you and make you feel better all around.
