Why Thrive?

We get asked A LOT about what we have in our kitchens and where you can find those products so I thought it was time we properly introduced you to Thrive Market. It’s an online grocery store full of compliant items and so much more—picture Whole Foods with bargain basement prices!

It’s a shame that products without all the sugars and other unpronounceable stuff is higher priced. Take regular ketchup vs. compliant ketchup for example. Great, so I have to pay more for better choices! Fortunately, over the past couple of years, there are more compliant products that have come into the market and we have a place that has lower prices to shop at. Enter Thrive Market.

When I was first introduced to Thrive, I was looking to stock up on essential pantry items for my Whole30 and figured I’d give their free 30 trial a whirl. I tried and loved it and ended up getting a membership. So far, with the five orders that I’ve put in, I’ve saved $175.44.

So, gimme the details…what’s the incentive?

The easy answer is money. You can sign up for a FREE 30 day trial membership and get 25% off through our link. No commitment. If you even try it once, you’ll save money.

Any reason why I might be interested in getting a membership?

  • 25-50% below retail prices for organic, non-GMO, high quality products. I’ve checked several items and they are lower in price. Take almond flour, for example. Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour Super Fine (16oz.) is $9.49 at Target, $11.49 at Stop and Shop, and $8.49 at Thrive. They have their own Thrive brand almond flour which is $7.99. Win!

  • They have LOTS of Whole30 compliant products all in one place (Primal Kitchen, The New Primal, Good Food for Good, Yai’s Thai, and more). Our favourite products appear when you click on our link.

  • You can order beauty products, cleaning products, pet products, and more from there and get FREE shipping on any order over $49.

Is the membership worth it?

  • Yes! I paid $60 for a year membership (so, $5 a month) and have saved well over the cost of it so far. Plus, Thrive market guarantees that you’ll save your membership fee’s worth or else they’ll refund you the difference.

  • My membership sponsors a free membership for a low-income family, teacher, veteran, or student. This makes me feel good!

  • On the flip side, if you’re a low-income family, teacher, veteran, or student, you can apply for a free membership here. Go ahead, apply!

What are a few of my favourite things? Flours! The flours above are what I have in my pantry at any given time. Gimme all the flours! With a little flour, egg, and some seasoning, you can coat any meat, fish, or veggies. Almond flour is great to make meatballs with! I could go on and on but I don’t need to bore you with an exhaustive list of what I cook with these but if you need a coconut fish recipe, email me.

Some other staples I buy are oils, vinegars, and spices. After those are in my cart, I move onto the dressings and sauces. Good Food For Good just started selling their ketchups (spicy and original) on Thrive and I’m over the moon. I tried them last year and have been waiting impatiently for them to arrive in the US market. Seriously, I am officially a ketchup snob now…only Good Food For Good’s ketchup in a crystal ramekin served cold with someone singing in the background while playing a harp while I eat. Okay, I know, I know…but it’s seriously good–try it! You won’t be disappointed!

There you have it! That’s what Thrive Market is all about. Give it a try–if you only order once and decide that it’s not for you, you’ll save 25%. Might as well splurge once.
