This giveaway is sponsored by Thrive Market. Thank you, Thrive! 

As you know, I did a Whole30 back in January. When I finished, I felt amazing, and I’ve really made the effort to completely clean up the foods I serve myself and my family. I still read ingredients like a fiend, and whenever possible I select the products that are natural and GMO-free.

Eating like this is hard for a lot of reasons, but there are two that are particularly challenging. The first is time. It’s incredibly time consuming to read the labels on every single product you want to buy. I know when I’m grocery shopping I almost always have my kids with me, so I am racing to complete my list before their patience runs out. There’s no way I can spend an extra twenty minutes to study labels. So, I buy the same things every time – this is how we get into food ruts.

My other (biggest) challenge is cost. It unfortunately is very expensive to eat clean, healthy food. I had to give our grocery budget a serious overhaul, plus I had to do a lot of coupon clipping and on-the-fly adjusting for what my stores had on-sale. Every week I had to seriously reevaluate if it was worth it for my family. Enter Thrive Market.

I heard about Thrive Market right after I finished my Whole30. They are an online retailer that specializes in natural and organic non-perishable products at wholesale prices (25-50% off retail). Thrive Market is the healthy, affordable love child of Costco and Whole Foods. Like Costco, there is a membership fee ($60), but after two months of shopping through Thrive my membership paid for itself. The good news is everyone gets a one month free-trial to make sure the membership is a good fit.

Thrive Market has done all of the research for me. It has more than 90 filters to search their products. For example, with just a few clicks I could find Certified Kosher, Vegan, GMO-Free foods that come in BPA-Free packaging. Or more specifically for me, I can find just their Paleo foods, or just the foods with no added sugars or dyes. If you or your child has a nut allergy, you can search nut-free foods. It’s so easy to find what works for your family.

The best part about Thrive Market is their commitment to making healthy food accessible and affordable for everyone. For every paid membership, Thrive Market donates a membership to a low-income family. You can read more about their mission here.

I place an order with Thrive Market a few times per month (orders over $50 get free shipping). I buy a ton of Annie’s Fruit Snacks (my kids could eat an entire box in one sitting), ghee, coconut oil, body lotions, and paleo treats. Annabel, James, and I are very into Chia Seed Pudding right now, and their chia seeds are the most affordable I’ve found by leaps and bounds….which is good, because the kids eat it like it’s going out of style.
