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 →


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 →

Meal in a jar recipes are my favorite! They are quick to make ahead of time and then available any time you're squeezed for time.

It seems like everyone around me is coughing and sneezing and even worse...saying they have the flu. There isn't a more comforting food like Chicken Noodle Soup when you're sick. Most people reach for a can of soup but let's be real. The cans are full of sodium, preservatives and really not much chicken. The last can I had I think had 3 pieces of chicken. Sad. The other alternative is when you're feeling awful... Read more →


This month Thrive chopped chicken is on sale and as you know, it my FAVORITE of the freeze dried chicken available. It is low sodium and unseasoned. I also like that it's smaller pieces because it refreshes (rehydrates) quick. If you're making something that you want done fast or you just want to have a side of chicken to toss on a salad, you want the chopped chicken. If you're looking for a low sodium... Read more →

I always keep a bag of tortellini in the freeze for those...I need something quick times. Before Thrive Life and freeze dried foods, it meant that my bag of tortellini went into some boiling water or broth or spaghetti sauce and called it done for the day. With Thrive Life freeze dried foods we're able to jazz it up with minimal effort and no extra cooking time. Example...I would never add chicken to anything because... Read more →


Stir fry recipes are awesome because you can toss in as little or as many veggies as you want. We kept this stir fry fast and simple since I was really wanting asparagus. Asparagus is one of those foods that are a pain to buy in the store. You need to clean and cut the asparagus and depending on the season, you might get woody asparagus. Nothing ruins a meal faster than that! In steps... Read more →


When you're feeling like Mexican food and it's late, don't hop in the car and go through a drive-thru. Instead, toss this together in 15-20 minutes and your body will thank you for it! We used frozen riced cauliflower and since it was hard as a rock when we took it out of the freezer, I had to put it in the pan for about 5 minutes to break it up before I added the... Read more →


I love pumpkin recipes! This recipe is made in one pan since you add the pasta right in and let it all cook together. You can use whatever veggies and I found this was a nice mix. We used mostly Thrive Life ingredients because of convenience. I just don't have a little of this and a little of that on hand and we always work toward having the least waste as possible. Thrive foods are... Read more →

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.

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 →

I'm all about making a recipe as quick and easy as it can get and when I can make it in one skillet, pot or pan - Booyah, it's a winner! I remember my mom making homemade spaghetti sauce and cooking it for HOURS and smelling it all day until my appetite was voracious and I could have inhaled the whole pot of spaghetti before it hit the plate. However, that's never been me. I've... Read more →

You'll also want either a blender or food processor to make the sauce. I found... Read more →


This nugget of a recipe packs a lot of flavor in a simple dish. This was also a one pot meal since we didn't have to cook the chicken, onions, green peppers and green chili peppers separately. We love using Thrive's freeze-dried foods because of the convenience, time-savings, less clean up and less waste. We can use the amounts we need without having excess available that we need to plan into another meal that week.... Read more →


This recipe takes less than 20 minutes to toss together and is delicious whether you choose to serve it as a warm salad or cold. Serving this dish warm means you'll been eating that much quicker! This is a great salad to take to a summer event but does mean that it will need to spend at least an hour, if not more, in the refrigerator. If you're like me...this is HARD! Also, if you're...
