4.0 out of 5 stars Healthy, tasty food, and easy to follow 16 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The numerous recipes we've tried so far have been delicious and inspiring. I wanted inspiration on how to create tasty meals from a wider variety of nutrient-rich foods, and find new ways to continue to create a well rounded diet. This book delivers. I'm eating nutrient dense, healthy food more frequently. My digestion is improved and as an active gym-goer I still feel sustained. Some of the ingredients may be hard to come by, but they can generally be found online.

The reason I've knocked off a star is that, as a biologist, I take issue with some of Mr Brazier's pseudo-science when it comes to nutrition, e.g. pH. It is my informed opinion that many of his claims would not stand up to evidence-based scientific scrutiny. He should have just left it out as his primary argument is well served by the proven health benefits of a plant-based diet. At least he's not telling you to starve yourself like all those other nonsense diets! Another gripe is the repetition, such as having a Portobello Burger that's pretty much identical to a Portobello sandwich, and then having a seperate 'recipe' for cooking the Portobellos themselves.

Eating healthily takes that little bit more effort but it's worth it when the food is this scrummy...

UPDATE: after intense usage, the book itself has disintegrated into individual pages...!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrive Energy Cookbook 30 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully photographed, well laid out cookbook. Every single recipe is designed with your health in mind. Each recipe has an icon to provide further nutritional information, e.g. gf = gluten free option, pr = protein rich options, and so on. There are transitional recipes for those who are just venturing into a change of diet but for palates not yet used to a plant based one. The recipe for homemade almond milk is awesome. Well worth the time to make, which other than soaking is no time at all. I love the kale chips....very crunchy and the Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato soup is one of the nicest soups I have tasted. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering a cleaner diet and for those that exercise and need better nutrition. You won't regret it.
