So a friend of mine, Liz, introduced me to Thrive Foods a while ago. I started using their gluten-free flour to make cookies and other treats/foods for my gluten free peeps and their gluten free flour is THE best. Really…the others I’ve tried always leave my baked goods with a weird taste but this one is fantastic. No weird taste or texture. So then Liz gave me a box of freeze dried snacks to try. These freeze dried treats are great for so many reasons…
Check out all the THRIVE categories here.
You know I’m all about this factor. HEALTHY. Thrive freeze dried foods are kept mostly in their natural, fresh state. So you’re getting “fresh” foods, just in a freeze dried form…and because they’re freeze-dried all that goodness, yummy taste and nutrients are locked in there. They use a “nutrilock process”, they select farms, and vine ripen produce until harvest, then flash freeze within 2-3 hours to lock in peak nutrition. Pretty awesome. They don’t have any additives or anything like that so it’s fresh food that lasts a LONG time. Win! You can check out all the details of their nutrilock process here if you’re interested and into that kind of thing [any other nutrition nerds out there!? 😉 ].
The convenience factor is super important because we all seem to be so busy and we don’t always have all the time in the world to prepare meals. These little snacks are pre-packaged and easy to take on-the-go as snacks or add into recipes. They’re already sliced, diced, chopped and ready to use.
3. LONG LASTING
There are a couple of awesome factors here. First of all you have a lot less waste because these foods last so long that you can keep them for a LONG time and they won’t go bad. You just use what you need and save the rest until you run out. You also save money because you’re not wasting money on food that goes bad and you have to throw away. AND last but not least…food storage! It’s important to be prepared and this is an awesome form of long-lasting food storage that actually tastes good! What?! Yeah…
4. TASTE AMAZING
This one I can attest to. These foods are tasty! Really. They’re so good. They taste fresh and have a great light and crispy but airy texture. I LOVE the fruits. My favorite is the mixture of granola, fruit and coconut. They’re seriously the tastiest little snacks and I can’t get enough of them. They’re yummy and healthy!? Always a WIN in my book.
Thrive foods are great because they’re incredibly versatile. You can use them in so many ways. Like I mentioned before they make great snacks but they can also be added to recipes and best of all…you don’t have to worry about what’s in season! They’re all in season when freeze dried 😉 Yeah…so that’s pretty awesome. Some great ways to use THRIVE foods…
- Sprinkle the freeze dried fruit on your oatmeal or yogurt in the morning
- Put a little baggie of freeze dried fruits or veggies in your kids school lunch (they’re a perfect alternative to chips!)
- Toss some freeze dried fruits in your morning smoothie or protein shake. No chopping or mess, just yummy fruity taste!
- Perfect hiking snack. They don’t have to be refrigerated and they’re an awesome addition to trail mix!
- Toss their veggies and meats in to a crock pot for an easy dinner or cook it up for some lunch/breakfast quesadillas or burritos
AND guess what. They don’t just have fruits and veggies. They have everything you could want. Their options include…
