Your Independent Consultant

As many of you know storing food for an emergency or disaster  has become more necessary than ever.  We had been looking for emergency foods and supplies we could use for daily use and for long term storage. 
We found Thrive Life (Formerly Shelf Reliance) and quickly realized this was it!  After sampling the amazing food, as well as realizing there was an opportunity to assist others in preparedness, we were in. 
Our goal is to raise awareness and help individuals, churches, and groups of people be prepared when the inevitable happens.
We live just north of Seattle, WA.
We have two teenage children who also love the food.
Please contact us to set up a demonstration and sample some amazing food for your home, church or office.

We specialize in the "Party by Mail" where we can send you some free samples so you can hosta tasting party.

31 Days of Emergency Prepping: Day 1 — Sprouting

May 5, 2014


In a longer survival situation, there are going to be times where you crave something fresh to eat. Because your local grocery store may not be providing your traditional assortment of fruits and veggies, and the season may be working against you, you’ll need a quick alternative. Sprouts can provide that.

Now granted, they wont be instant gratification (that is a fairly modern luxury) but at 3-5 days it is perhaps the quickest way to enjoy fresh vegetation. You will however, need to gather a few supplies. The most basic supplies include a quart mason jar and some cheese cloth or netting, or a specialized “sprouting tool.” Finally, you’ll need lots of non-GMO organic seeds or beans such as clover, alfalfa, lentils, garbanzo or mung beans and plenty of fresh water to rinse them.

Once you have the supplies, it’s just practice, practice, practice. Luckily sprouts are very good for you and tasty on everything from curries to sandwiches. The instructions are simple but can vary from seed to seed so I’d like to direct you to one of my favorite websites for sprouting information:
