share. learn. thrive!
|Inspired by the lifestyle changes recommended in Thrive and Thrive in 30, the Vega Community is here to keep you on track, share in your successes, and inspire even greater change to help you achieve optimal health.|
Summer brings a wide selection of fresh, LOCAL fruits and vegetables. If you’re a foodie, you might even say locally grown produce is the best part of the season! Eating according to the season means you get to enjoy foods at their peak taste and at good value.
Summer fruits and vegetables are perfect for making energy-boosting salads, so you can get the most of the Summer!

As you know, buying local produce is also good for the environment. If you're interested in learning about how you can eat more sustainable foods, Brendan Brazier introduces the Nutrient-to-Resource Ratio in his new book, Whole Foods to Thrive. It showcases what foods use the least amount of natural resources to produce, yet yield the greatest nutrient density in return (very cool). It's available in our Canadian eStore and coming soon to the US - so keep an eye out for it!
