This Veggie Side Dish Tastes Like It Was Just Picked Out Of The Garden

Last night we wanted a quick side dish. This is what we love about Thrive Life veggies...just grab what you need out of the can, toss in some water and simmer for about 3 minutes. All were done to perfection and this mix tasted like I just picked them from the garden. The beauty of freeze dried!

Below is:

2 handfuls Thrive zucchini
2 handfuls Thrive asparagus 
2 handfuls Thrive red bell peppers
1 handful Thrive mushrooms
A hefty pinch of Thrive chopped onions

Veggie Side Dish with Thrive Vegetables

How does Thrive Life's freeze drying process work?

It's Thrive's Nutrilock process! Thrive partners with farmers who make quality food their passion.

They harvest their produce at its nutritional peak. Not before. Not after. 


Thrive Life Fresher Than Fresh

They flash freeze our produce within hours of being picked, typically right on the farm!

Thrive's freeze dry process gently removes moisture and locks in nutrients, so your food stays naturally preserved instead of decaying on the shelf.

What is freeze drying?

Freeze drying removes 99% of the moisture from food through a process called sublimation. Basically, this means that you can dry a frozen piece of broccoli by turning the ice crystals in the broccoli straight into a gas without melting it first. Feel like a physicist now?

Got it? No pressure. Well, maybe a little. You see, with a little pressure and just a small amount of heat the ice crystals start to break loose. A vacuum then sucks the air out of the freeze dryer to lower the pressure, enabling the ice crystals to turn into water vapor. The water vapor collects on freezing coils and the food is slowly and gently dried over several hours. That's why a freeze dried piece of broccoli still looks like broccoli, instead of a shriveled weed.

Our Nutrilock Promise keeps our food fresh as the day it was harvested, so you never have to chase expiration dates.
