Yum-my! What's better than a cookie? Nothing but when you can make that cookie even healthier, I'm ALL for that! This has been my go-to cookie recipe for a long time since it's on the healthier side and uses honey as the sweetener instead of sugar. This time we "Ruvi-lized" our cookies with Ruvi Focus. How do they taste? DELICIOUS! The cookie itself looks like a dark chocolate cookie because of the Ruvi Focus. What... Read more →


Mmmmmm delish! These Cheesy Chicken Camping Quesadillas are the ultimate cheesy perfection! Don't let the name "camping quesadillas" fool you. While they are great to take camping and cook in aluminum foil, they are also great made in a skillet on your stove top. If you're camping and don't have aluminum foil, you can do the same thing in the pan you brought for the campfire. Just because it says "meal in a jar" doesn't... Read more →

Last year Thrive introduced an awesome way to get in your daily serving of fruits and vegetables. It's called Ruvi and there are 4 fantastic flavors! We're working on more Ruvi recipes for you but the easiest way to "use" Ruvi, is... Read more →


Are you ready? 2 ingredients and you will WOW your family with the easiest homemade applesauce ever. Here's the funny thing, I'm counting water as an ingredient. That's how E-A-S-Y this applesauce is to make. There is no way I'm going to peel apples, cook them and blend them to make applesauce. I don't have the time for that. I also don't like store-bought applesauce because many come with preservatives and sugars. This is the... Read more →


Another great meal in a jar recipe! You can choose to either use Thrive Life's Sausage Crumbles or Thrive Life's Ground Beef. We choose the ground beef this time and it tasted great. When you're meal prepping the meals in a jar, you could choose to make 1/2 with the Thrive Sausage Crumbles and 1/2 with the Thrive Ground Beef or even split the amount per jar in half and use both. These recipes are... Read more →

I know you'll love this Thrive Life story just as much as I did from Lindsay Budge. Thrive Life cherries dumped across my bedroom floor as two giggling children happily shoved fistfuls of the sweet morsels into their red-stained mouths…that was what I walked into just minutes after I’d vacuumed. What a mess! But how could I complain? My toddlers had picked an antioxidant-, vitamin-, and nutrient-packed snack over goldfish crackers or fruit snacks! As... Read more →


​Are Thrive Life freeze dried foods gluten free? Many of Thrive's products are gluten free as a result of being a single whole food, like beef or onions. Thrive Life is now a certified gluten-free facility, and all products that are certified gluten free have a gluten free symbol on the product label and online product page. As I mentioned in the video, if you are Celiac and looking for certified gluten free freeze dried... Read more →


You know how you get one of those assignments in school and you don't know where to begin? Well, that was me. First I decided to do our top 5 freeze dried foods from Thrive Life. As I stood in front of my food storage area, I knew that wasn't going to happen and I could never narrow it down to 5. Then I said, ok what's our top 10 freeze dried foods from Thrive...

Simple meal that tastes great! We used Thrive freeze dried seasoned chicken slices for this one since we wanted larger chicken pieces than the Thrive chopped chicken. It's already seasoned so it gives the meal a great taste. If you're opting for low sodium, you'll always want to choose the Thrive chopped chicken instead. Another great food from Thrive is the mashed potatoes. We don't eat a lot of potatoes in our house so buying... Read more →


This is a tasty twist on your classic tomato soup recipe. Enjoy! Spiced Tomato Soup Recipe Ingredients 2 cups Thrive Life Onion Slices 7 cups Thrive Life Tomato Dices 2 cans Coconut milk (13.5oz), or for a richer taste use 2 cans of Coconut cream (yummy) 6 Tbsp cholula (or your favorite hot sauce) 3 handfuls Roasted Sliced Almonds 2 cups water Directions 1. Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan. Add 2... Read more →


This recipe took about 30 minutes from start to finish. Usually when I'm using Thrive Life freeze dried meats, I just toss in and cook at the same time. You could make this recipe as a toss everything in and cook but this time I refreshed the pulled pork first with a 6 oz. can of pineapple juice. If you don't have extra pineapple juice on hand, you can refresh it with hot water or... Read more →


Thrive Life foods are mostly freeze dried but they do have some dehydrated foods too. When you're shopping on our website, you'll see freeze dried on the shopping page so you can easily tell which foods are freeze dried vs. dehydrated. This brings up the question about what's the difference between the two? Below we've answered that for you and some additional information about freeze dried and dehydrated foods and be sure to check out... Read more →


It's Monday and for many that means Meatless Monday! This recipe is hardy. If you've never had potato gnocchi before, they are dense and have a dumpling like texture. This meal will leave you full. If you want to make it vegan, there is vegan gnocchi available too. We used a tablespoon of Thrive Life green chili peppers but if you like more heat, add an extra tablespoon or two. I love these because I... Read more →


Recently there's been a shortage of flour and eggs. This recipe doesn't contain either and you can make these cookies low sodium as long as you're using unsalted peanut butter. These healthy cookies contain the goodness of peanut butter, strawberries, bananas, applesauce and most importantly...dark chocolate chips. Mmmmm how I love chocolate chips! As you know from my other cookie recipes, I do like to go extra heavy on the dark chocolate chips but for... Read more →


Thrive Life foods and one pot meal = fantastic! It doesn't get much simpler than this. This recipe combines all the goodness of chicken, tomatoes and broccoli with the ever flavorful basil. Yum! We use Thrive Life foods because not only does the foods taste great, you don't need to wash or chop anything. When you're using any of Thrive's meats, they are also pre-cooked so that is a huge time saver as well. We... Read more →
