From the Introduction to Brendan Brazier's new book
Thrive Foods, 200 Plant-Based Recipes for Peak Health

   Coming from an athletic background, I developed my interest in food simply as a means for
enhancing performance. I wanted the best fuel and biological building blocks available. But after
several years of being meticulous about what I ate, it dawned on me that I actually knew very little
about food itself. While I understood nutrition—the components that make up food—I knew very little
about food as a whole: where it came from, who grew it, how much time needed to pass for it to go
from seed to ready-to-eat food, etc. And how did my food choices affect all those involved along the
way? Then there were the environmental considerations. What was the environmental draw of the
laborious process of converting natural resources into edible sustenance?
   When I selected what to eat, I understood that choice most certainly had a direct impact on
health and performance (which I discuss in Chapter 1), but I was only just beginning to appreciate
the broad and significant influence that our individual food choices have on the lives of others and
how our food choices impact the environment.
   The significance of this began to sink in, and as it did, an appreciation for the scope of influence
our food choices had—one that extended far beyond us as individuals—came with it.
   In fact, it’s that appreciation that led me to write this book. While my interest in food had been
sparked by a selfish desire for premium nutrition to fuel athletic performance, as I pried deeper into
the world of food, I became fascinated with the system as a whole.
   I began asking questions.
   Undeniably, unrefined whole food is an essential component to good health, but what attribute
determines a food’s nutritional quality? Caloric density? Vitamins? Minerals? Phytochemicals?
Antioxidants? I wanted to know. And what is the environmental cost of each of these nutritional
components? Certainly not all foods are equal in their nutritional makeup, but how do each of their
impacts on the environment compare?
   I wrote this book in pursuit of those answers. What I found fascinated me. The choices each of
us makes every day as to what we’ll eat turned out to have a greater impact than I ever could have
imagined.

Brendan Brazier has partnered with Eat Well Guide to create this guide to his favorite sustainable
plant-based restaurants. Enjoy!
