I have been a fan of Thrive Market for the past four years… I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to share my love with you! Some of you might have a Costco membership… I have a Thrive Market membership. I get all of my favorite pantry staples and health foods from Thrive Market at wholesale cost and then get my produce and lean meat locally — either the farmer’s market or local grocery stores. Overall, Thrive Market saves me a ton of money and time because I can order pantry staples without leaving the house and their site/app is super easy to navigate and search.
How does Thrive Market Work?
If Thrive Market is new to you, let me give you a run down. Think Costco: you pay a yearly membership fee to have access to wholesale prices. Same with Thrive Market… except it’s entirely online (adios chaotic store experiences and long check out lines!) and it’s ALL good-for-you (think natural and organic) products. Brands you would see at health food stores, but at wholesale prices? YES PLEASE!
Right now, Thrive Market is generously giving EBF readers a free gift with their first order (up to $24 value!) AND a free 30 day trial when you sign up for the yearly membership. Basically you get to try it for a month to see what you think! No strings attached. There’s no promo code needed, simply click here to start shopping!
Thrive Market Review
I have saved so many kitchen headaches ordering from Thrive Market. Before Thrive, I would run out of pantry staples and not realize it until my grocery shopping was done for the week. Talk about frustrating. I now have a regular rotation of products I buy so I never run out of the ingredients I always like to have on hand. Plus! I have saved so much money!
There are certain products (see all my go-to items below) that I know I need every month (or every 2 months). Thrive Market offers these at a fraction of the cost so it’s a no brainer for me.
Thrive adds up how much money you’ve saved and I’ve saved almost $500! Crazy, right?

Favorite Items to Buy from Thrive Market
All the Simple Mills Products
Simple Mills baking mixes – I’m obsessed with these grain-free, almond flour based baking mixes. I use the banana and pumpkin bread mixes all the time. $7.99 at Whole Foods –> $6.99 at Thrive
Simple Mills frosting – This is the only packaged frosting that I use now. I’ve used it for so many cupcake and cake recipes. $5.99 at Amazon –> $4.49 at Thrive
Sauces and Dressings
Rao’s Homemade pasta sauce – Hands-down the best store-bought pasta sauce brand. We keep a jar in the pantry at all times just in case we have a busy night and want to throw together a quick pasta dinner. I usually pair the sauce with ground turkey and serve it over legume-based pasta. Easiest dinner ever.
Coconut aminos – If a recipe ever calls for soy sauce or tamari, you can sub for coconut aminos! It’s slightly sweeter in flavor, but tastes super similar. Bonus points for being gluten-free and paleo-friendly! $6.99 at Whole Foods –> $4.99 at Thrive
Bragg’s apple cider vinegar – Y’all know I love my ACV. I always have a large jar on hand for my daily apple cider vinegar drinks and for recipes. $14.99 on Amazon –> $5.29 at Thrive
Organic sriracha – My love of sriracha runs deep so we always have this on hand. $11.83 on Amazon –> $5.99 at Thrive
Cholula hot sauce – I always have this hot sauce in the fridge. Everything is better with a little spice, right? I’m on a Cholula kick lately, but Thrive Market has a bunch of great hot sauce options!
Wild Planet tuna – This canned tuna is a true staple for my pantry. It’s wild-caught and tastes so much better than other canned tuna I’ve tried. I love having these on hand to add some extra protein to a salad or grain bowl! Quick, easy and delicious. Psst… one of the recipes in my meal plan uses this canned tuna! $16.00 at Whole Foods –> $14.24 at Thrive
Chocolate and Baking Supplies
Enjoy Life Dairy-free Chocolate Chips – I buy the semi-sweet mini morsels and the dark chocolate morsels all the time for baking. Thrive Market offers the cheapest price I’ve ever seen for these.
Oils and non-stick spray – This is where I buy my coconut oil, avocado oil and avocado oil non-stick spray. Such good prices!
Teas and Elixirs
Traditional Medicinals tea – Traditional Medicinals is my go-to brand for therapeutic teas. We always have Throat Coat on hand. It’s great for easing a scratchy throat and Ginger Aid is super helpful for any digestive issues.
Four Sigmatic Hot Cacao – Hot chocolate will forever remind me of my childhood. Now I can enjoy a cup of hot cocoa without all of the added sugar! $20.00 on the Four Sigmatic website –> $15.99 at Thrive
Four Sigmatic Reishi – This blend is amazing for chilling out before bedtime. I love having this instead of an after dinner snack. $38.00 on the Four Sigmatic website –> $29.99 at Thrive
Four Sigmatic Golden Latte – Four Sigmatic makes it super simple to enjoy a golden latte with this blend! Just mix with hot water or milk and enjoy. So delish! $20.00 on the Four Sigmatic website –> $16.99 at Thrive
Four Sigmatic Chai Latte – Thrive Market says this Four Sigmatic Chai Latte is “like a digestive form of candles and meditation.” If you like chia lattes, I highly recommend this one. $20.00 on the Four Sigmatic website –> $16.99 at Thrive
I love that Thrive offers a variety of organic spices, including my favorite brand Simply Organic. Here are some of my go-tos:
Siete Tortilla Chips – I am a chip l-o-v-e-r and these Siete grain-free chips are at the top of my list!
Supplements + Misc
Ultima Replenisher – I love LOVE adding this electrolyte powder to my water after workouts or when I just feel like I’m dragging a little bit. If you’re a Gatorade lover, give this a try instead! I’ve converted Isaac! $39.99 at Whole Foods –> $29.99 at Thrive
Garden of Life Probiotics – I have been trying to stay on top of my supplement game. I love these Garden of Life probiotics! $44.99 at Whole Foods –> $36.39 at Thrive
