THRIVE Online Grocer Rocks.
As we become more conscious eaters, striving to make healthier choices, there is something with which we must come to terms. Eating healthy will cost you more. Organic fruits and vegetables, grass fed, unfarmed, and whole food options all cost more. I could write this post on how spending money on good quality food is a paradigm shift. On how I believe we have made food fast and affordable but toxic. On how you can choose to pay now for healthy food or pay later for insulin, weight loss or cancer care. This is all true, and an important discussion to have, but instead I am going to share some good news. Something that I have discovered that is going to ease the pain of the financial transition to eating well.

I discovered Thrive from my mentor George over at Civilized Caveman. (He doesn’t know he is my mentor, by the way, I just call him that.) He has been using THRIVE since they started and at first, I was resistant. When I want Paleo pizza crust, I want it now; I don’t want to order and wait four days! But, I saw THRIVE on Facebook the other day offering a free coconut oil with your first order and with the rate we go through coconut oil that little offer was all it took. I got on the website and checked them out.
THRIVE is a new online grocer that works directly with elite healthy brands to bring their customer wholesale prices on quality food and product options typically found at expensive health food stores. I love that the products are true brands, not knock-offs and that they guarantee wholesale pricing to the customer. The also often have specials going such as an additional 10-15 percent off my favorites.
My first order came in days. The packaging was minimal and recyclable. (Take a note Amazon!). All the products I love and I had saved over 35 dollars on my first order! On their website, they keep track how much you are saving over traditional pricing. And they even predict what your savings would be for the year if you continue to order these products through THRIVE. Very convincing.
Oh ya, did I mention THRIVE has free shipping?

This week I want you to consider your food purchases. Are there areas that you could consider purchasing healthier options? Could you work toward more whole-food options with slightly better ingredients? Remember even just a couple small shifts in what you feed your body can yield great outcomes.
I don’t make recommendations to my followers without great consideration. I know I have your trust, and I do not take that gift lightly. You need to know that sometimes like this time, for instance, a brand that brand might offer me a free product so I can give an authentic opinion or they may reimburse me for the time it takes to write and develop a post about their product. Know that I would never recommend a brand because of compensation and that the views expressed here are my own. I will tell you if something is crap whether they pay me or not.

I recently ordered from them too! I stumbled across them from a FB ad 🙂
They are good, right? I love them.
Forgive me if I missed it but how many people does one box work for? I live alone so I don’t want anything thats too much but I’m all for saving.
Nope, you just order what you like. Like a grocery store and all free shipping!
I subscribed to their emails, and have been debating purchasing. I think you’ve finally convinced me to take the plunge!
Do it girl! You will love it! Use my link! 🙂
Okay, you convinced me to try it. I’ve had a full cart online a few times but never pulled the trigger and ordered!
Do it Jessica, you will love it. I did the same thing! 🙂
i had checked out Thrive previously and loved the concept but never ordered from them. thanks for reminding me about them!
Of course, Kali! I encourage you to give them a go. They really are awesome!
I’ve seen lots of ads for Thrive but haven’t tried them yet. I do love online shopping, though!
Super easy and convenient! Go for it, Catherine. 🙂
Thrive Market is awesome!
Right, Emily? I know. I have done a few orders now and I really am enjoying them!
I recently discovered Thrive and was so intrigued by them! I didn’t place an order, but after seeing all of the amazing goodies you were able to score, I think I may go ahead and place the order.
It seems like a lot of folks are saying that. You will not be disappointed!
Okay, I’m intrigued! I need to eat healthier. And honestly I hate going to the grocery store. Definitely going to look into it!
It is awesome, Becky! I hope you check it out! 🙂
I love Thrive. I haven’t ordered yet but will be in the near future. So much easier than running store to store looking for the products you want and leaving empty handed.
Yes, you just have to get in the habit of keeping track of what you need to order. 🙂
I have seen some ads for thrive market before but have never tried it… I think I need to, it looks great!

You’re absolutely right, you need to pay more to prevent illness and stay healthy – it’s like you’re investing in yourself and your future!
This looks like such a cool brand! Is it just within the U.S. do you know?
For now, it is I think. I am not sure what their plans are but I know a bunch of Canadians that would love them!
I love Thrive, I need to place another order tonight. 🙂
I just saw some brands I love. I need to get started on Thrive.
That is awesome, Maggie. Enjoy, it is awesome!
