Thrive: May Specials & New Products

My goodness, it’s already the 6th of May! Is anyone else’s head spinning?


I just wanted to tell you about the Thrive May Specials, and a smokin’ deal, and some new products that I’m really excited about.

The Q-pon item this month is the Freeze Dried Red Bell Peppers. You can get this price through your Q, or by ordering through me.

Also on sale are the Sliced Strawberries and the Strawberry Yogurt bites, both fantastic in things like Summer Porridge or Instant Oatmeal Mix.

tomato-powderYou will also want to RUN RIGHT NOW and buy some of the Thrive Tomato Powder. I have to tell you, I was skeptical. I’ve used other company’s tomato powder before and it was awful tasting and not easy to use at all. Basically a waste. So I have to admit I was nervous to try the Thrive Tomato Powder the first time….but now I use it EVERY time. I don’t even buy canned anymore. Not only can I avoid the BPA lined cans, but at the altitude I live at, it takes a very short storage time (a year or less) for a can to start bulging, or to spurt when opened, and then I just have to throw it away, even though it’s probably just pressure from the altitude, but who can tell for sure, so I have to toss it. (Yes, 2014 winner for world’s longest run-on sentence!) I use it for tomato paste, tomato sauce….for a little tomato flavor in things. It is that good. And on sale. Score!

And because I’m so nice, I’m even going to include a little recipe this month for Red Enchilada Sauce. You’ll looove it. You’ll try it and be like, “I don’t know what I ever saw in that canned stuff.” And it uses the Thrive Tomato Powder….which is on sale…..

And last but not least (so so so excited about this one!!!) Thrive has announced a couple of new products this month. In addition to the fabulous Thrive Garden Seeds Kit, they now are offering the Sprouting Kit  (This kit comes with everything you need to start growing your own sprouts, including equipment for 3 different sprouting methods so you can choose what works for you) and the Melon Seeds, and they also have a refill package of sprouting seeds. These are all non-hybrid, non-GMO goodies. I know what you’re thinking……NO WAY! And so I say…….YES way. Now, if you read my blog (please say you read my blog…pretty please) you know I’m passionate about my sprouts and I find them to be the perfect food and am even more entranced by the idea of being able to create fresh produce on my kitchen counter, any time of the year. This is GOLD! You can check out my post on sprouts and find some tips on sprouting, but you can also use the handy guide.

That is just a quick overview of my favorite specials and newbies this month. Check out the whole shebang by clicking on the May Specials image.
I hope you have a wonderful month filled with May flowers! And lots of gardening….if you like that thing.
