Want Quick, Healthy Meals? A Home Store Solution!

For years I had a 2 hour a day commute to my job. Add that to the 45+ hours I worked every week, and that left me with little time to prepare and eat healthier meals. For the last 5 years, I’ve been able to work from home and still don’t feel like I have much extra time to prepare and eat healthier meals!  Can you relate?

Mango Pineapple CornA few years ago, I discovered Thrive Life.  After just tasting the pineapple, mango and corn right out of the can, I was blown away with the flavor and was hooked.

Only 1 ingredients in Thrive produce cans – NO preservatives!

I decided to create my own Home Store with an assortment of Thrive Life products. Why Thrive? Well, Thrive fruits and vegetables, for example, are vine ripened then flash frozen, sealing in the maximum nutrition and taste — providing healthier options and nothing comes from China! They’re also NON-GMO, have NO MSG and NO preservatives. And because it’s freeze dried in a can, the shelf life is up to 25 years (unopened) or 1-2 years (opened) in my pantry, instead of 1 week or less in my fridge — eliminating a lot of waste — think spinach, celery or strawberries!

Creating a Home Store is like driving a car to get you where you want to go.


  • The THRIVE Q is the VEHICLE!

Is it for You?

Building a Home Store with the Thrive Q and/or Smart Start probably isn’t for you if you are already preparing and eating healthy meals and aren’t concerned with saving more time and money.  But if that isn’t you, and you’d like some help then lets continue right along . . .

Do you know what a THRIVE Home Store is?

A THRIVE Home Store is just a well stocked pantry — It’s like having your own grocery store in your cupboards.  Mine is mostly Thrive with some other good products my family likes.

How do I build my THRIVE Home Store?

Enter the The THRIVE Q – THRIVE’s brilliant monthly grocery delivery program that brings the grocery store to your home — on the date and budget you choose. When you go on The Q, you always get the best price on your THRIVE foods.  I’m always up for a bargain – How about you?

I love both of these and use them regularly.

NOTE: If you decide to customize your Q from the start, you would have to order the THRIVE Guide as a separate item on your Q. The Quick Reference Guide would have to be ordered separately through a THRIVE consultant, like me.
