If you’ve ever wondered how to clean up your pantry, follow a plant based menu plan, or feel better from the inside out, the time is now!
As a proud contributor for Thrive Forward, developed by Brendan Brazier, I can vouch for how applicable the information is (into any lifestyle), and how approachable the recommendations. Plant based doesn’t have to be intimidating, or exclusive! You can integrate the fundamentals of clean, plant based nutrition into your lifestyle even just once a day for benefits to your energy, moods and libido…you name it!
Once you register (it’s free!) for Thrive Forward, you’ll take a short questionnaire. The program will use these inputs to determine a recommended lesson plan based on content that will have the greatest impact on your primary health concerns.
You can access all the content at any time, and in fact I recommend completing all the lessons anyways (it will take apx 4-6 weeks, completing apx a lesson a day).
Here’s one of my favorite tips from the program, (if you need more convincing!):
Nourish, Don’t Stimulate
We’re a caffeine-culture that can’t seem to shake our cup o’ joe. Every time we drink
a cup of coffee, we are withdrawing energy from our body bank account at an
astonishing speed. This cycle of energizing through stimulation works much like a
credit card. We borrow energy from the future to help us deal with our present fatigue.
But eventually we must pay the price – with greater fatigue. Recalibrating with a Thrive
Forward approach will enable you to gain energy through nourishment instead of
through stimulation. (Lesson 1: How to Start Eating Clean)
What’s also empowering about this program, is how you’ll learn to apply the information to your advantage. For example, as an avid coffee drinker, no matter what I know about adrenal health (as a nutritionist), I know because of adopting principles from Thrive, that I can also buffer the effects of acid forming foods (such as coffee), so that I can still maintain the focus on a pro-longevity diet, but have my indulgences too. It’s about being equipped with the knowledge to make better decisions.
Oh…and did I mention there’s prizes for participants in the program? Awesome one’s…
