If you still have the image of Rocky Balboa guzzling down six raw eggs for breakfast before heading to a boxing session at the meat-packing plant as your guide to optimal muscle mass, it might be time to get acquainted with Brendan Brazier.
As a vegan professional Ironman triathlete, best-selling author, and creator of
Vega plant-based protein powders, Brazier bucks the old concept that
peak physical fitness comes from the consumption of animal products.
Tonight, the man responsible for helping Hugh Jackman go veg will visit
Whole Foods to tout his 100 percent plant-based diet.
Check out "The Plant-Based Diet With Brendan Brazier of VEGA." The free talk begins at 6 p.m. at the Palm Beach Gardens Whole Foods (11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., Palm Beach Gardens). Space is limited. Call 561-691-8550, or register at acteva.com/go/palmbeachgardens.
