Professional triathlete Brendan Brazier launches vegan meal delivery service

Brendan Brazier, professional athlete, author, and creator of Vega, has launch yet another create idea: a vegan meal delivery service, right to your doorstep. So many people who want to eat healthy often feel as though they just don't have the time or know-how to prepare the proper meals. Through  Brazier 's travels, he had overheard this explanation countless times and came up with the solution.

Thrive Foods Direct offers three different levels of meal services to choose from:

  1. Thrive-the basic option at $45 per day designed for those eager to improve their health. Chulked full of plant-based proteins, organic veggies, and is high in fiber. (Includes the cost of shipping)
  2. Thrive Plus- at $55 a day, this option is for individuals with above average physical activity meaning exercising an hour on more at least 4 days a week. A serving of Vega Complete Whole Food Health Optimizer is included. (Includes the cost of shipping)
  3. Thrive Pro-topping off at $75 around day, this program is specialized for athletes. This plan is customized on an individual basis with larger portions and additional Vega products.
All three plans are available for a 5 or 7 day package. Each includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is a week-to-week commitment.

Food items are shipped in a chilled container, each pre-packaged and vacuum sealed. Not only are you able to receive orders in the comfort of your own home, but shipping is available to be sent to your location of employment and even a hotel!

Packages include instructions, and items should be refrigerated immediately so keep that in mind when choosing your shipping location.

For those that are concerned with the costs, have no worries. The Thrive Foods Direct website states, "As we grow our goal is to actually lower the price to the point that the Thrive Foods Direct system (meal planning, nutritional balancing, ingredient shopping, preparation, and delivery) is actually the same price or even lower than if you were to make the meal yourself."

Curious about the menu? Some of the meals include Pasta Puttanesca, Blueberry Chia Pudding, Spinach Rollatini, and Italian Garden Stir Fry. Is your mouth watering yet?

Head on over to the Thrive Foods Direct ingredient page for nutritional information and to find out more about the wonderful whole foods they have to offer.

Everyone start placing their orders soon, the more that buy, the faster the prices will start to drop! And who doesn't want a sustainable, healthy, high protein, plant-based, home delivery service?
