Vegan athlete, Brendan Brazier is back to talk about his book, Thrive: A Guide to Optimal Health & Performance Through Plant-Based Whole Foods, and his new product, Vega, touted as the first 100% all vegan meal replacement. We’ll also speak with Tony Ayre about ARMORY, the Animal Rights Media Online Repository, and we’ll get Torontonians warmed up for Farm Sanctuary‘s Walk for Farm Animals with local coordinator, Juli Kaiss.
Since becoming vegan, “Brendan has gone on to be regarded as one of the top professional Ironman triathletes in Canada and is well on his way to international success. Brendan credits his plant-based, nutritional stress reduction diet as a significant reason for his ability to compete professionally in one of the world’s most demanding sports. As a result of Brendan’s success, he has garnered a reputation as an innovative cook and recipe developer of performance enhancing plant-based creations. Speaking and providing cooking demonstrations throughout North America, Brendan continues to educate on the value of a properly implemented plant-based diet for improved vitality and performance. Also, as an advocate of efficient and sustainable agriculture, Brendan encourages the support of companies who employ organic and non-GMO farming methods. Brendan believes that personal well-being is intimately connected to environmental health.”
