As we settle in the new year, we are becoming more conscious of our health. With the holidays behind us, we are now focusing on replenishing our pantry products for a healthful year. This year, I want to share more on how we journey through living a more natural lifestyle. I feel like in the last year I’ve sort of veered off a bit and I’m using today to pick up where I left off, so to speak.
I’m thrilled to have Thrive Market partner with me on this post. I love what they’re all about and I’m happy to share them with you. Thrive is a socially conscious online store offering the world’s best-selling natural and organic products brands in the cooking, beauty, home, and supplement categories. By purchasing a yearly membership ($59.95) as you would with wholesalers like Costco, Thrive is able to offer a 25-50% off discount on the best healthy products around. Thrive’s mission is to make healthy living easy, affordable, and accessible for every American family and that’s why they are committed to donating a free Thrive membership to a low-income family for every paid membership on the site.
I was gifted a Thrive membership and credit to do some shopping. I picked up a lot of our favorites as well as a few new products that peaked my interest. I wanted to start the new year off with some healthy snack options for the boys so I got them some a few boxes of Annie’s snack mix and Honest Kids juice boxes. I couldn’t resist the Tanka Buffalo Bites for myself. I’m a jerky fanatic.
We aren’t gluten-free but love Tinkyada’s rice pasta. I started buying this a few years back after Jayden’s allergy testing confirmed her had a wheat sensitivity. Been hooked ever since. I’ve been wanting to try some paleo baking so I picked up some coconut flour. That has been on my wishlist for years. By now y’all know that I love me some Mrs. Meyers. Love the dish soap. It cuts grease like a boss, lathers well, and smells like pure happiness. Had to re-up.
I added some quinoa to my cart… it just seemed fitting. I’ve already managed to botch my first batch.
I’ve never been more excited over a BIG bottle of fish sauce – perfect for my seafood gumbo. I also grabbed some Thai Peanut marinade for the many Asian dishes I like to cook up.
Yummi Bears are the best tasting vitamins evar. Better than candy. The boys think of them as a morning treat.
I decided to try a new lotion and I’m loving the light, refreshing scent of Everyone Lotion Coconut and Lemon. The bottle is HUGE. At $7 a bottle, I made sure to grab two. It is a bit on the thin side, so I’d recommend this more so for the summer. To combat that Winter itch, I’m using homemade butters which I’ll soon share recipes for.
Love, love, love Everyday Shea Bubble Bath. We are on our third bottle of this stuff… two of which were purchased at Thrive. This EO bubble bath makes lots of bubbles and the Eucalyptus is awesome on the sinuses. Every day Jax makes a request for baw-bles. Oh, and speaking of sinuses, I grabbed my very first Neti Pot. I’m not about that stuffy nose life.
We’ve been using Tom’s of Maine for years – the boys’ favorite toothpaste! I just realized, I didn’t photograph our adult toothpaste. We (Greg too!) just ditched conventional toothpaste for Dessert Essence Tea Tree Oil & Neem toothpaste. I’m all about tea tree oil so I had to have it and it’s not bad.
This entire haul was only a few bucks under $100. Due to high demand, a few seasonings that I had chosen ran out of stock, but Thrive rectified the issue. It’s all good.
Of course I couldn’t rub all of these goodies in your face without offering you a little something, so I’m sharing the love below!
