Finding support is one of the most important elements to making lasting lifestyle changes. If you’ve chosen to move toward a plant-based diet-whether vegetarian, vegan, or part-way there-there’s lots to learn. Where do you get protein? Which foods are best for B12? What options do I have when I’m eating out?
Vega-the leader in plant-based nutrition products-has created a number of resources to help answer your questions and support your plant-based lifestyle:
Thrive in 30: Learn the basics of plant-based nutrition from a pro. Brendan Brazier, professional triathlete and bestselling author of The Thrive Diet, presents Thrive in 30-a free online wellness program designed to increase knowledge about plant-based nutrition, optimize physical and mental performance, and offer a fresh approach to total body health. Health enthusiasts receive 12 lessons by email over a month, each touching on a different key health-enhancing topic. In addition to written content, each lesson includes a brief and intimate video segment where Brendan reviews key principles and provides suggestions on how the ideas can be seamlessly applied by anyone. www.thrivein30.com
