One doesn’t usually think of vegan when the word triathlete is mentioned, but the author of this book happens to be both and wants to prove that a diet rich in animal protein is necessary or even ideal in some cases. Brendan writes that the muscles need to be exercised (or stressed) and then rested and properly fed. When it comes to the menu: he varies from the traditional food pyramid. Beans, nuts and tofu all contain protein, but did you know that protein is also found in broccoli, spinach, and hemp? The human body needs protein to function at its best…but how much…and from what sources?? Read this book to find out more – and be inspired by a truly thriving athlete!
