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 →

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... 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 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.

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 →


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? NFR stands for “not for resale.” This means that the program is designed for personal use only, and that any Thrive Life products purchased by yourself cannot be resold to someone else. Can a Canadian Thrive Life member still sponsor someone in the US?... Read more →


Snacking! We love to do it but many times we don't make the best choices. Now that most of us have been under lock down, the refrigerator or pantry calls to us.

Ruvi gives you the... Read more →


Delish! This cake is moist with a hint of strawberry and pineapple throughout. It's not overpowering and is a nice mix with the peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. I went light on the strawberries and pineapple addition but making this again, I'll go a 1/2 cup of each. We're using Thrive Life freeze dried fruits in this recipe. Wait until you taste them! You can purchase them in a snackie size, pantry size can... Read more →


When you get a tomato at the grocery store, do you know where it came from? How long did it take to get there? Were chemicals used to create that vibrant red color? Kinda spooky when you think about all the funky things that make that picture-perfect tomato! We know how important it is to get these questions answered! We work hard to make sure our food comes from growers who share our same passion... Read more →


You may have clicked on this and said...how can pulled pork be easy? We have a secret. It's called Thrive Life and they have freeze dried pulled pork and it's slow cooked, drained, and pulled to perfection. It is hands down the best pulled pork I've had and I've had pulled pork at a lot of restaurants. Since we started using Thrive Life pulled pork, we haven't ordered pulled pork from a restaurant because why?... Read more →

Orzo is a small rice shaped pasta and cooking with it makes meals fun. This one pot Italian chicken orzo recipe as a bold basil flavor and is delicious. We used Thrive Life chopped chicken in the recipe because it refreshes quick which makes it perfect for this recipe because once everything is in the pot, you'll only simmer it for 10-12 minutes. I love a meal that is ready and on the table in... Read more →


​On average, families in North America toss out a shocking $2,000 worth of food every year...that’s just bonkers! And we all know it’s not intentional…afterall, you totally meant to use the other half of that onion, right? ​Here’s how Thrive can help you save $2,000 a year: Moldy food freedom: Never throw away moldy or freezer-burned food. Keep it in the pantry, not the trash! Bye, bye excess: Use just what you need! No more... Read more →


Yum, yum, yum! These turned out great and are sweetened with honey. I try and stay away from making any desserts with sugar because I've found once you let sugar back into your life, your body doesn't want to let it go. Desserts are so satisfying when you know that they are healthy or on the healthier side and aren't loaded down with sugar or brown sugar. I know many people use various sweeteners but... Read more →


Why can Ruvi do SO MUCH for your immune system? More than almost anything out there! Because it’s fruits and vegetables. Nothing else. No added sugars, no fillers, flavors, preservatives, nothing. It’s freeze dried, locking in nutrients at the time they’re harvested—unlike the produce you get elsewhere—which means, a ton more... Phytonutrients, such as antioxidants - way more than you get from the grocery store. All that fiber helps your systems stay clean and strong!... Read more →

You had me at healthy and delicious and then added peanut butter and banana?!? Oh yes please! These cookies are super simple to make and taste great. They have no added sugar but they are sweetened with honey which is my favorite way to sweeten any dessert. As you can see by the picture, I went a little, ok A LOT, heavy on the dark chocolate chips. I am a cookie monster and I love... Read more →


Freeze dried eggs? Who would have thought! This is seriously the easiest scrambled egg you will ever make. Once you've tried them, you'll wonder what took you so long. During the recent pandemic, eggs were at a shortage. I saw post after post about people wondering what stores had eggs available. It really was a headache for every egg lover out there or even the occasional Sunday egg eater. Freeze dried eggs are the answer!... Read more →


This tasty Chicken Fried Rice meal in a jar recipe is another great meal prep that you can make 10-14 jars ahead of time and keep them in your pantry or food storage area. It's so convenient to have these ready to go because it takes the hassle out of the "what's for dinner?" question. We used Thrive Life foods for the meal in a jar because they are freeze dried foods and work great... 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. Even during the pandemic, I still find myself grabbing the meals in jars out of the pantry to make because I don't have to prepare anything ahead of time. Also, right now while I have extra time during the day, I'm making sure that I have all my meal in... Read more →

This easy loaded cauliflower can be made in the oven or on the stove top in a pan. Since it's usually pretty warm in Arizona, we tend to do everything on top of the stove, rather than in the stove. When you make this on top of the stove, you don't have to refresh the foods prior to since the water will refresh them easily. The longest part of the stove top process is waiting... Read more →

Have you ever purchased that perfect looking strawberry from the grocery store only to find that the flavor falls flat? It's happened to me more times than I'd like. They always look so tasty in their carton. Then I go to eat them and no flavor and of course many times there are hidden moldy ones in the center. That’s why Thrive Life does something the grocery store can’t. They let our food ripen naturally…on... Read more →


Do you LOVE onions? I do but I don't love the fact that I have to peel them. I also don't love how they make my hands smell and my eyes tear. What I do love is the taste. I love adding onions to pretty much everything but there was a time I just said no to onions. On top of the drawbacks I mentioned above, I also kept getting onions that would turn soft...

It's tough for athletes on the road. Some people may think they eat all this healthy food and have the best meals but the reality couldn't be further from the truth. Schedules are tough and there's not a lot of time for healthy meals. When the food is provided, many times it's hot dogs or hamburgers. Rarely is it a fruit plate or a salad. Brennon Lund, professional baseball player, gives us his testimonial on... Read more →


We get asked this question quite often so I thought I'd address it by video and in this blog post. Are Thrive Life foods everyday foods or long term storage emergency foods? Easy answer - all of the above! Thrive Life foods are delicious and we use them daily to create yummy, quick and healthy meals. Snack wise, it doesn't get much better because we choose the fruit or vegetable snackies. Ok, many times we... Read more →

It's also a healthier option so double bonus for meals in jars! This recipe uses Thrive Life freeze dried foods. I use them because they are convenient, no waste and work great in... Read more →


We are not natural born preppers. Some people are, we're not. Up until we became Thrive Life consultants, we had enough food from week to week. Sure, we kept a few extras of noodles or some canned goods that we used a lot but in the case of emergency, we'd be up a creek without a paddle. We originally found Thrive Life for apples and chicken. We were looking for a better way to have... Read more →

If you've been looking for low sodium salsa, you know it's tough to find. When you do find it, it's not cheap. It always amazes me that when a company doesn't add salt to something, it becomes a specialty item and therefore there is an upcharge. So, I've been in the salsa conundrum for awhile. When I want to add salsa to a meal, I use a tiny amount because the sodium content is so... Read more →
