Deb Skabelaund

Your Independent Consultant

Hello my name is Deb Skabelund,

I am so proud to be a part of a “Food Revolution”  and this amazing company that is changing the food industry and the way we eat… first with high quality shelves, then amazing freeze-dried food, and now “NUTRILOCK” a guarantee of quality nutrition and freshness that is unsurpassed in the food industry.

We have scrumptious, high quality, easy, fast, nutrient dense food, "NUTRILOCK" is our quality guarantee....  Gathering you family around the table, nurturing them with your time (that you gained with quick easy prep), and food with no additives…. keeping them healthy and happy.   

My personal Thrive Life story… I live in Logan, Utah and am a busy Wife, Mom of two girls and Nana of one, plus take care of a lovely older lady.  My Mother raised us to be self-reliant so we always had a well-stocked storage room, meaning I grew up with a “Home Store”.  After establishing my own home, I have done the same, trying many different products over the years, some better than others… Along came Shelf Reliance/Thrive, an industry leader in providing nutritious, delicious, shelf stable food (you may recognize the name from Costco, Sam's Club and other stores)      Winner… Winner…   hands down.  Yummy, high quality food, and without all the additives and junk...  I sampled berries, corn and brownies first, then hosted a party, learning about everything else available… it was fun and everything was so good I had to be a part of this food revolution, it fit my motto "Store what you Eat, Eat what you Store".  We sell food that has an unopened shelf life of 20 to 30 years and an opened shelf life up to 2 years.  We sell through home parties, one-on-one sales or internet.  We are not selling bling or make-up, we are selling food, something everyone needs, we all EAT.  

I get to share my source of amazing food that we use every day and can still store for months/years, plus I get to share a business…   I love this company their quality and integrity are unequaled.  As a consultant we not only sell food, we gather families together around the table!  I have been involved in other direct sales companies, but have never been this excited, because I am providing a need not a want!    We show people how to have healthy quality food always available, plus provide for their family.  

With the way the economy is going and all the crazy weather related disasters happening everywhere, it just seems smart to have some food put by just in case, be it a shortage, job loss, disaster, pandemic or something else unexpected.  It’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it

This is a ground floor opportunity!  If at some point you would like to start building your home store/food storage I hope that you will keep me in mind.

Contact me for more information about joining this growing team… or if you would like to host a tasting at your home or business, or an online/Facebook event to get free and ½ price products, I will be honored to help you.

Reconstitute apples by stirring in cold water to coat evenly. Refrigerate while preparing other ingredients. Preheat oven to 350⁰F. Heat butter, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and water to a hard boil for 30 seconds. Shut off and stir in nuts to completely coat. Bake nuts on a nonstick sheet pan or Silpat baking mat for about 10 minutes. Stir twice during the cooking time. When nuts are ready, sugar will stop running and cling to nuts. Cool for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Mix yogurt bites and water until smooth. Reconstitute honey crystals until well dissolved and add to yogurt. Add mayonnaise, reconstituted celery, parsley, and chives and mix well. Chill mixture for 30 minutes. Stir apples into mixture and fold in nuts.
