I recently went shopping at Thrive Market. Have you heard of it? They’re a social enterprise market, helping feed the world, while they feed you. They have top selling brands at wholesale prices, which I must say is nice to my wallet. And all from the comfort of your own home.
They have several different categories to meet your specific dietary needs, like Raw, Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, and of course, Gluten Free. Thrive Market makes buying your dry gluten free foods a breeze, plus they have so many options.
I made my first purchase the other day, and got it in the mail. I was able to find things I haven’t found in the stores around my town, and certainly not for the price I purchased them at Thrive Market.
The coconut oil was free gift with my first purchase, and while shipping is free for orders over $49, mine didn’t quite reach that. But it was still totally reasonable. I remember feeling so surprised at how cheap it was!
The cereal was demolished in about two days. I love and miss cereal like it was my best friend. Being gluten intolerant now means it’s basically impossible to find cereal that isn’t made of wheat, or that contains, malt. I also have a high intolerance for oatmeal, but that’s another story for another day.
And the mushroom soup by Pacific Foods is the first time I’ve ever seen it, so I just had to try it. When I lived in Oregon, the Pacific Foods factory was near my house and I always felt an affinity for their products.
To sign up at Thrive is easy. First, you make a free account, so you can browse and see all your options. When you’re ready to make a purchase, you’ve unlocked a free 30-day subscription to the market. If you find you’ve really enjoyed the service, you can sign up for a membership and continue to receive amazing savings, plus for every membership they get, they sponsor a low-income family who is struggling to provide healthful food to their family. Plus if you use my special link, you’ll save an additional 15% off your first order! Pretty sweet deal, right?
I’m really excited to start trying all the gluten free hygiene products they have, like masks, shampoo and conditioner, and body lotion. I’m convinced because all of my stuff has vitamin E, I’m getting cross contaminated all the time, which is why I never feel like I’m getting better
I think the coolest thing about this business is that they’re making it accessible to families who live in food deserts, or who have such highly specialized diets that regular grocery stores often cannot accommodate them in the way they deserve. Thrive Market is filling a gap and helping to end malnourishment.
