What's not to love about making a meal in one pot and having it done in about 20 minutes from start to finish? I love cooking with freeze dried foods and especially freeze dried meats. There is no prep involved and you don't have to "plan ahead" and take the meat out of the freezer to thaw it out. It's ready when you're ready. There's also no mess and no waste because you just scoop... Read more →

The Potato Gnocchi with Chicken Bolognese is an Italian family favorite thrivalized with a meat bolognese sauce!

This recipe makes about 4... Read more →


A delicious and easy one pot tortilla soup using freeze dried foods from Thrive Life. This southwestern favorite can be on the table in 30 minutes.

Besides drinking Ruvi, one of my favorite things to do is add Ruvi to recipes. It gives an extra boost of healthy by adding fruits and vegetables into daily foods and snacks without a lot of fuss.

Cheesy goodness is what this meal has going on! YUM-ME! It's full of flavor and we made the enchilada sauce instead of buying it. We had some extra flour tortillas and I didn't feel like making enchiladas and wrapping them, etc. Instead we cut the flour tortillas into strips and just added them to the meal. This way we could also make these a skillet meal instead of an oven meal. In Arizona it's just... 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 →

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 →

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 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 →

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.

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.

In the video below, I go over some of our most frequent asked questions about Thrive Life and Canada. Most importantly, Thrive Life does ship to Canada! Yay!! What is NFR?

Can a Canadian Thrive Life member still sponsor someone in the US?... Read more →

You can purchase them in a snackie size, pantry size can... Read more →
