I had 4 ounces of cream cheese leftover from when I made the Pulled Pork and Cream Cheese Soft Tacos and tossed this together. I love using Thrive freeze dried kale because of the convenience. When I buy kale from the store, it's hard to use it within a week and this way I just scoop what I need and there is no waste. Kale has many health benefits and using freeze dried kale is...

Comfort Food! It makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside and this meal nailed it. If this meal could have been me wrapped in a big ole blanket of yum, than was it! When I think of Pot Pies from back in the day, I unfortunately think of that cheapy little frozen version you put in the oven for 45 minutes and then it was so hot for the next 30 minutes that it burned...

Are you a hummus fan? Maybe you're a store-bought hummus fan because you weren't sure how simple it was to make. I'm talking S.I.M.P.L.E. Best part is when you make your own hummus at home, you can control the sodium. The easiest way to do this is by choosing no salt added chickpeas. This is something to really watch when you're in the store too. I recently looked at some low sodium chickpeas and it... Read more →


This is a super easy hack to always have lemon juice on hand. I just make a small amount and use it up within a week but you can easily double or triple the batch depending on how much lemon juice you use. We used the Thrive Classic Lemonade which is a seasonal item. Since it's summer, it's back for a limited time. The can contains 224 servings at 1 teaspoon each so this should... Read more →


The bacon and corn saute makes a delicious side dish. We use fully cooked bacon because it makes life easier, quicker and way less clean up. If you choose the fully cooked bacon route, it tastes just as good but you will not have the excess fat to drain. This recipe takes about 10 minutes. You can also choose to leave the bacon out and make this a vegetarian side dish! Bacon and Corn Saute... Read more →


Sorry guys, I couldn't resist this one! I thought it was hilarious and makes perfect sense on how to cut the carbs and in a great way! We've included some pizza recipes below. Some healthy, some not as healthy. If you're choosing one of the not as healthy ones, just reduce the amount you're eating. See, you just cut the carbs! LOL! Pizza, pizza and more pizza! I am a pizza lover and it's one... Read more →


The biggest inconvenience in making chicken salad is washing, cutting, cooking and then the clean up of the chicken. Ok, that's actually 4 biggest inconveniences! This is why we love, love, love using Thrive freeze dried chicken. It takes all that time and prep away! As you'll see in the video, this meal is quick and easy and that's what cooking should be all about. We shouldn't have to spend hours in the kitchen doing... Read more →


We're in Arizona and most of the year we don't turn on our stove. Therefore, we've adapted pretty much all meals to either cooking on the stove top or grilling. If you're looking for cheesy, oooey-gooey goodness, look no further! You don't need to heat up the oven and cook this tuna casserole in the stove since it's done mostly in one pan. If you really want to make this a complete one pan meal,... Read more →

Thrive's ground beef (hamburger) is on sale this month so it's a great time to stock up! We love the hamburger because it's so convenient. We just grab what we need out of the can and there's no messy grease to clean up because the hamburger is already cooked. As a bonus, there isn't any waste. As my husband put it, this tasted like a really fancy version of the old-time Hamburger Helper meal but... Read more →

I would like to make a correction to the video because I say that a pint will make 2-3 servings and a... Read more →

The recipe for the chicken fajitas comes with our Southwest Chicken Chef Pack and is one we've made several times. You can serve this in corn or flour tortillas or on a bed of chopped lettuce. It's so tasty that you'll want to eat it right out of the pan! I used Thrive chopped chicken and Thrive chopped onions in this video since they cook a little faster. That's the fab thing about Thrive foods,... Read more →


Did the word cheesy catch your attention? I know it always does for me. While this recipe isn't the cheesy, ooey and gooey type, it does contain 2 cheeses blended into a sauce. That qualifies for cheesy, right? I couldn't help but gaze into the pan of goodness just before I added water. Such a colorful meal! The best part of this was it took me less than 2 minutes to toss this all in... Read more →

This was a cheesy delight! Just like most of our recipes, it comes together quick but this one you'll want to let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes so all the flavors can meld together before cooking. We're night owls so I made this earlier in the day, put it in the fridge and cooked it around 10pm. Here it is when you add the hot water to start refreshing. Here it is... Read more →
