Sorry guys, I couldn't resist this one! I thought it was hilarious and makes perfect sense on how to cut the carbs and in a great way! We've included some pizza recipes below. Some healthy, some not as healthy. If you're choosing one of the not as healthy ones, just reduce the amount you're eating. See, you just cut the carbs! LOL! Pizza, pizza and more pizza! I am a pizza lover and it's one... Continue reading

As you'll see in the video, this meal is quick and easy and that's what cooking should be all about. We shouldn't have to spend hours in the kitchen doing... Continue reading

We're in Arizona and most of the year we don't turn on our stove. Therefore, we've adapted pretty much all meals to either cooking on the stove top or grilling. If you're looking for cheesy, oooey-gooey goodness, look no further! You don't need to heat up the oven and cook this tuna casserole in the stove since it's done mostly in one pan. If you really want to make this a complete one pan meal,... Continue reading

Thrive's ground beef (hamburger) is on sale this month so it's a great time to stock up! We love the hamburger because it's so convenient. We just grab what we need out of the can and there's no messy grease to clean up because the hamburger is already cooked. As a bonus, there isn't any waste. As my husband put it, this tasted like a really fancy version of the old-time Hamburger Helper meal but... Continue reading

This flavorful Beef Veggie Skillet meal in a jar can be eaten by itself or over rice. No matter which way you decide to eat it, you are going to love it! If you don't meal prep ahead of time with meals in a jar, this also is a quick toss together recipe.

The recipe for the chicken fajitas comes with our Southwest Chicken Chef Pack and is one we've made several times. You can serve this in corn or flour tortillas or on a bed of chopped lettuce. It's so tasty that you'll want to eat it right out of the pan! I used Thrive chopped chicken and Thrive chopped onions in this video since they cook a little faster. That's the fab thing about Thrive foods,... Continue reading

Did the word cheesy catch your attention? I know it always does for me. While this recipe isn't the cheesy, ooey and gooey type, it does contain 2 cheeses blended into a sauce. That qualifies for cheesy, right? I couldn't help but gaze into the pan of goodness just before I added water. Such a colorful meal! The best part of this was it took me less than 2 minutes to toss this all in... Continue reading

This was a cheesy delight! Just like most of our recipes, it comes together quick but this one you'll want to let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes so all the flavors can meld together before cooking. We're night owls so I made this earlier in the day, put it in the fridge and cooked it around 10pm. Here it is when you add the hot water to start refreshing. Here it is... Continue reading

I love the convenience of making meals in a jar! It's a great way to have a quick meal ready to go sitting on your pantry shelf or in your food storage area. You can make them in either a quart size mason jar or a pint size mason jar. Since there are 2 of us, we chose the pint size recipe. You can serve in a soft taco shell, as a taco salad, or...

When I first received my can of Thrive Life cheese, I tried it right out of the can and knew I would never need to buy cheese from the store again! Once I refreshed it, that was confirmed. As you'll hear in the video, my dog Rio is impatiently waiting for some cheese. He loves it as a little treat and I can give him several pieces so he thinks he's getting LOTS of treats...

I've used this recipe for salt free taco seasoning for years. I honestly don't even remember what the packaged taco seasoning tastes like because it's been that long. BUT, what I do remember is that "salt" feeling. I'm all about reducing our sodium intake and there are easy little ways to do it, like this quick taco seasoning you can toss together. When I make my own salt free taco seasoning, I also don't have... Continue reading

Kale. It's one of those items that you either love or hate but either way, you know you should include it in your diet. If you're looking at all the greens, Kale is the King Kong of super healthy greens. Kale is high in fiber and water. Both of these help prevent constipation and promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract. It also contains B vitamins, and vitamin C, which promotes iron absorption which is... Continue reading

Years ago they were marketed as "real fruit" but you'd be surprised to learn... Continue reading
