Using THRIVE as a Family

Our family spends a lot of time in the kitchen, and our kids love to get into the action and help cook the meals. THRIVE makes this so easy by providing us with healthy, convenient ingredients that take the "sigh" out of cooking a meal for a big family. We are excited to experiment with THRIVE ingredients in all our favorite recipes. Hooray for tasty, easy, and good-for-you family meals!

Perfect for the Working Mama!

I have no qualms about admitting that I do not enjoy cooking. I don't think about dinner until I am HUNGRY and then food needs to hit my stomach within minutes before I turn quite beastly. Add to this my dislike for shopping...and this wanna-be healthy mama was in serious trouble!

Now, I'm the supermom who sends freeze dried fruits to preschool snack time, whose kids snack on pure fruit and veggies daily, and who can whip together an amazingly tasty and nutritious dinner in less than a half hour!

I Love Cooking Again

Thrive Life food has made me love cooking again. The kids love to help bring me all the items of the recipe and even are becoming little inventors of their own. I always have something to make and never have to worry about taking something out to defrost!

How THRIVE Simplifies My Life

I am a full-time EMT and my schedule runs 48 hours on/48 hours off. I also have a son that has a lot of food issues, so cooking a healthy meal for my family can be difficult. With THRIVE, I don't have to worry about the preservatives and food colorings he is allergic to, and I love that most THRIVE is non-GMO. I can use THRIVE in my everyday cooking and my whole family loves it. No peeling or chopping and it saves me time. I can prepare my meals in half the time. I love that I don't have food spoiling in the refrigerator--it comes right to my door! I don't have to take time out of an already busy schedule to go to the grocery store, and it is quick, easy, and convenient to use. THRIVE can change your life and give you more time with your family along with providing healthy, nutritious meals. THRIVE makes that possible for me and my family!

Win, Win!

While searching for foods for my family, I had high expectations. I sampled many different foods from several different companies.
I wanted foods that were non-GMO, healthy, great tasting, and easy to use with a long shelf life.

When I found THRIVE, I hit the jackpot. The quality and flavor are unbeatable. I knew from the first taste that my search was over. My family and I couldn't wait to try every THRIVE product. We haven't tasted a THRIVE item yet that we didn't like. We love them all. My children eat the fruits and veggies right out of the can. Great tasting, healthy snacks and meals. Win, win!

Thrive Is a Life Saver!

A couple of years ago, I stopped buying most processed and prepared foods. The chemicals were of concern to me, and we were operating on a very tight budget, so I wanted to get the best I could for my buck. The hardest part of not buying prepared foods was making everything from scratch. I felt like I spent my entire life in the kitchen. Then I started using THRIVE and my whole world changed. With THRIVE's minimally processed, healthy foods, I can make dinner in 15-20 minutes flat, any day of the week.

So if I'm delivering one of my 8 kids to elementary school play practice, and another to the middle school play practice, and two others to the literacy center to help tutor other students who are struggling, and then reversing to pick them all up, I don't have to stress about what to put on the table when I get home. I know that by using my "THRIVE Formula" I can make something they'll all love. THRIVE makes it easy, convenient and deliciously healthy to make meals for my family that I can feel good about. It's been life changing, and a life question!

THRIVE = Less Waste + More Money

THRIVE saves my family money and time, it is as simple as that. THRIVE allows me to use just the amount of whatever I need for a recipe, whether it's meat or veggies or fruit. No more throwing out limp celery because I needed only one stalk. No more last minute runs to the grocery to get kid-friendly foods. No more cooking, cooling, then chopping chicken. No more splatter clean ups from frying burger or sausage.

The kids love to snack on the yogurt bites and any of the fruits and I don't have to worry about rotten fruit or spoiled dairy from my once-a-week trip to the grocery. In our household we try not to eat a lot of processed foods and strive to eat whole and clean. THRIVE make that easier and less stressful as well.

Who Knew Living a Lifestyle of Healthy Self Reliance Could Be This Easy?

I am big into self reliance, always have been. My entire adult life has involved the concept of healthy independence. Though we live in a large Canadian city, we grow as much of our food and herbs as we can. I grind my own flour, cook from scratch, make my own soap, and use a clothesline for three of the four seasons (hey, even I have limits). It will come as no surprise then, that we have always had an excellent food storage / home-store. ....

So has THRIVE LIFE changed our life? No. It hasn't changed our life, but it sure has simplified it and given it more colour and variety. It has made it EASIER for us to live the way we want to. Easier to feed our family healthily all year round on a budget. Easier to have the peace of mind that long term storage of good, nutritious food provides. Easier to afford things that are important to our family. It used to be that saving time in the kitchen meant giving up something that was fundamentally important to us. It felt like incorporating 'easy' was selling out to the dark side. No longer true. THRIVE LIFE lets us live the life we want ~ easier.

And it has made it easier to share all these good things with other people. Because EVERYBODY should be able to enjoy the same advantages we enjoy, whatever their lifestyle is.

THRIVE is truly amazing

We started using THRIVE about 1 year ago. It saves us time and money. It's very delicious and flavorful. I'm self-employed and love cooking from scratch. With THRIVE I'm able to do that but save a lot of time in the kitchen as everything is peeled, washed and chopped. I developed a couple of allergies (like gluten and GMO). Since we use mostly THRIVE I feel healthier and see improvements. The BEST thing is that THRIVE is very open with information about there products. They have high standards for their food and they truly care about their customers. I'm so in LOVE with THRIVE.

My Thrive Story

As a hairstylist, I stand all day, and the last thing that I want to do after a long day at the salon is to stand in front of the stove for an hour cooking when I was hungry hours ago. Thrive has really helped with that! It takes me longer to decide what I want to eat than it does to cook it. Thrive has really changed that aspect of my life for the better and I'm excited to be able to experience and enjoy more of what Thrive has to offer at convention.

I have never been to convention as I just signed up to become a consultant last December. But I am SUPER excited to go! I can't wait for the experience. My up lines have been and continue to be such an inspiration to me as I grow in this business. I would be nowhere without them and they have raved about convention and how awesome it is: meeting Chef Todd, the gala dinner and the break out sessions. I can't wait. July cannot come fast enough!

We use THRIVE foods every day

We just love THRIVE foods. I made a commitment 4 years ago to use it every day if it's cooking a meal, making a smoothie, or just snacking on the fruit. THRIVE saves my family time and money. THRIVE also allows me to use just the right amount of whatever I need for a recipe. I love that there is no more crying over chopping onions, no more throwing away produce at the end of the week, and no more last minute runs to the grocery store.

My kids love to take the yogurt bites and bananas to school for snacks. THRIVE foods makes cooking easier and less stressful at meal time!

Thrive Possibilities

I signed up as a business builder with Thrive several years ago. But really, I've just been a social seller. I have been using the foods and I have a monthly "Q." But lately, as we near our retirement years, I've been searching for something we could do together to bring in some extra income in our senior years. We're both nurses, but we don't want to work for someone else in our retirement years.
Debbie Abbott, the consultant that introduced me to Thrive, texted me regarding a meeting here in Spokane. I invited a friend and went. While sitting at that meeting, the light bulb went on! THIS is what we can do!!! Thrive is the answer! I decided it was time to get serious about doing this business. I love the foods, I believe in their value, and I believe this business is the answer to my prayers. I've got 2 parties set up for April, and I just hosted an online party and was able to order almost $100 in free products and almost $300 in half-off products!!!
Retirement is 5 years away. By then, we'll have built our business well enough that we will definitely be "Thriving!" and MORE!!

A Way of Life

When I first signed up as an independent consultant with Thrive Life in October 2015, I was taking online classes through BYU-Idaho. Many of my evenings were filled with homework and before I knew it, it was dinner time and I hadn’t even thought of what we would eat. One of these nights my husband, Tracey, just started gathering our Thrive Life vegetable cans and prepared a quick, nutritious soup. While I am one to follow a recipe, Tracey is one who creates a recipe. Since joining Thrive Life I have learned to go outside my comfort zone and recreate some of my favorite recipes with Thrive Life products.
We have begun saving additional money by Tracey taking a variety of vegetables to work with him, where he mixes them in with top ramen or a cup of soup for his lunches. He also keeps a #10 can of the 9 grain cracked wheat for his breakfast at work.
My father who is 82 years old and is residing in a rest home due to Parkinson loves the Thrive Life fruit. Instead of asking me to bring cookies as he did in the past, he is now asking for freeze dried fruit as his snack.
Personally for myself, I love snacking on the fruits and vegetables. I use to be one who would snack on cookies, etc., but now find myself craving a bowl with freeze dried sweet corn, green beans and mixed bell peppers. Yum! I also enjoy mixing a baggie of freeze dried fruits to keep with me when I’m running errands.
This past February, my oldest son, as well as two of my daughters-in-law joined as consultants. They are loving the foods they have tried. I’m so grateful to know my sons and their families have the benefits of Thrive Life in their lives. I started my journey with Thrive Life hoping to add great tasting products to our family food storage, but quickly learned it is much more than that. It has become a way of life.

We feel so much better!

My husband and I have noticed a marked improvement in the way we feel. We are eating less , feeling satisfied and have less cravings because we are getting more nutrients in our food thanks to Thrive. Inflammation is WAY down, our joints are less painful and we are more mobile. He has lost quite a bit of weight. I haven't lost weight but am less "fluffy" lol because allergies and inflammation are more controlled. Prior to finding non GMO Thrive food we hadn't eaten corn for several years; now corn is back in our diet and we love it. All the foods are 'clean', natural, fresh and taste GREAT! I can't convey how excited we are to be able to eat 'REAL' food.

Thrive Met Both of My Needs!

When I started with Thrive I had one goal in mind... Get a Years Supply of Food for my entire family. That's 10 people! That goal took me about 2.5 years to accomplish, utilizing the Q, Host Benefits, and our awesome Sales. I remember thinking I was never going to crack open those Thrive cans. I finally had the security I'd always wanted. However, It didn't take long for me to realize how difficult it was to truly share the benefits of Thrive with others, when I wasn't experiencing those benefits myself. While driving home from a party one night, the thought occurred to me, Ilene you are a fraud! You are asking these people to do something you are not doing yourself. OUCH! That was the turning point for me. I went home and opened about 25 Thrive cans the next day, and committed to using at least 2-3 Thrive ingredients in every meal from that day forward. I tried one new Thrive recipe each week, and swapped out fresh for freeze-dried with some of my own favorite recipes. My family loved the meals I was creating, and I LOVED how easy my life had become. Why did I wait so long?!! Now, four years later, my family has a 2 years supply of food in my Home Store and we still eat Thrive every day. Funny how that works!
