Fresh strawberries in bowl on table

Thrive Life Freeze Dried Food is Better Than Fresh!

Did you know that “fresh” produce in your grocery store isn’t really “fresh”?

Webster’s Dictionary defines “fresh” as “… Lately produced, gathered, or prepared for market…”  This connotates great flavor and nutrition, but that is as far from the truth as can be for what is sold as fresh produce in most grocery stores!

It takes from days to weeks to get produce to grocery stores! And even here in the Garden State of New Jersey where I live, I have found that in the summer, lots of roadside “farm markets” are importing produce from other states and even countries! And if it takes days to weeks, how can it be picked ripe, packaged and shipped and still be truly “fresh”?

One example is strawberries. They won’t ripen after they are picked, and only last a few days after being picked before they rot and/or mold, even refrigerated. So if they are grown in Georgia or Florida (2 of the closest Southern States known for growing strawberries in our off season, which is only about 2 weeks in May here in NJ), and it takes who knows how long to wash and package them, then another day to truck them to NJ, how can they really be “fresh”? If you have bought strawberries that are white or green inside, they were NOT picked ripe! And they were NOT red outside when picked either! They were injected with food coloring to make them look more palatable!

The first issue is flavor. Did you ever taste a strawberry ripe right off the vine? It was sweet, right? How about those red outside, white inside strawberries? Did they ever taste sweet? I think not…

The other issue is nutrition. The point of highest nutrition of fruits and veggies is when they are at the peak of ripeness. Before that point they don’t have all the nutrition, and after that time, nutrition degrades. Thrive Life produce is picked right at that peak of ripeness point, then flash-frozen, which locks in all that flavor and nutrition!

Well there you have it! Thrive Life Freeze Dried Food is Better than “Fresh”!

Best Chicken Salad Ever! Recipe picture showing dry and prepared salad in 4 oz canning jars.

Best Chicken Salad Ever! Meal in a Jar

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Thrive Chopped Chicken

1 T. Thrive Chopped Onions (FD) (not dehydrated version, they won’t refresh as fast)

1 T. Thrive Chopped Celery

1 T. Thrive Sweetened Cranberries or you can skip this or substitute Thrive Red Seedless Grapes (I like the sweet/tangy contrast!)

1 t. or 1 personal packet of mayonnaise (you can use any mayo, but Olive oil variety is good for Keto or Paleo diets!)

1 t. or 1 personal packet of Dijon Mustard (you can sub the mustard, but Dijon gives it the best flavor IMHO!)

Pinch of Thrive Chef’s Choice Seasoning

Pinch of Thrive Peppercorn Seasoning

 

Instructions:

Put the ingredients in 4 oz canning jar, shake gently to mix, then put the condiment packets down the side or on top.

When ready to eat, remove the packets, add their contents to the jar with 1/4 cup water, shake well, then let rest for 5-10 minutes in fridge or ice bucket. It may seem too watery at first, but that will thicken up during the rest time.

Voilà! Instant lunch!

It’s even better if you mix it first thing in the morning and let sit in fridge until lunch time!

Self-Management

Peter Drucker said:

“In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long-term perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is not technology, not the Internet, not e-commerce. It is an unprecedented change in the human condition. For the first time — literally — substantial and rapidly growing numbers of people have choices. For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And society is totally unprepared for it.”

How can we prepare to manage ourselves? Here are some ideas I have garnered in my recent reading and listening:

  1. Know what is happening! Take stock of your personal weaknesses and strengths. Keep yourself notified of current events, for your family, community, country, world. Realize that changes are going to happen all your life.
  2. Take time for you every day! Do something that you need to take care of for you or your business, and don’t let anyone interrupt!
  3. Listen to others!  People need to know they are important, so really open your heart and mind and listen to them. Only then will you know how to communicate with them!  Others also see you in a different perspective than you see yourself, so they can give you insight that you might not otherwise receive.
  4. Be an example!  Do what you want to see the world do, be the first if necessary! Don’t follow in others’ footsteps, make the trail yourself!
  5. Set goals! This is very important, as without them you will have only dreams. Read up on S.M.A.R.T. goal setting, set your goals, then work on them daily! A great way to keep the goals is to give yourself prizes when you reach milestones.  Don’t forget to review and analyze them every 6 months or so, and make any changes necessary.
  6. Keep a growth mindset!  Realize that everything we do is based on our own efforts and choices, not on how/where we were born. Make your focus point # 7.
  7. Constantly progress!  In other words, better yourself. Learn a new skill, take up a new hobby, take a class, be a volunteer, work on a weakness, etc.
  8. Find a mentor!  We all need to be taught things, so find someone who is experienced and successful at what you want to do, and ask them for help!
What does this have to do with Thrive Life? I wouldn’t be doing all this if not for the people who have come into my life through my affiliation with Thrive Life! I am working toward a better me!

 

And you can too!

Healthy Food from Thrive Life!

Healthy Food from Thrive Life!

How is Thrive Life food healthy?                                                                                                   Strawberries, blueberries, peas and other foods

We start by picking food off the plants when it is fully ripe, not a moment before!  This is when the nutrients and flavor are at their highest level. Then, it is flash frozen to lock in that nutrition.  Next, the food is freeze dried, which preserves the nutrients in the food for up to 25 years!   See about our NutriLock promise.

With meats, the fat is trimmed off to keep it lower in calories and cholesterol too!

We don’t compromise when it comes to the quality of our foods, we are very picky with our suppliers!

Stop Wasting Food!

Want to stop wasting money?

When was the last time you bought some lovely fruits and veggies, put them in the fridge, then forgot about them? How rotten or fuzzy were they when you remembered?

Just another way to get paid to eat Thrive Life, my saving money on wasted food thrown out.  Our fruits and veggies will last usually up to a year once you open the can! Keeping them in the fridge or freezer will give them an even longer life too, especially if your region is warm and humid. Ours never last that long, they get eaten! Unopened cans generally last up to 25 years too, so it’s great for long term food storage for emergency preparedness.

Shop our Monthly Specials, use our monthly coupon discounts for Preferred Customers, or wait for our big Spring and Black Friday sales to stock up and save even more!

Why Thrive? picture of a family eating a meal

Join the new Food Revolution!

At the time of the Napoleonic wars, the food industry was revolutionized with food preserved in jars. Nicholas Appert, after observing that food in glass containers did not spoil unless the seal leaked, was awarded a prize of 12,000 francs in 1810 by a French minister, Count Montelivert, for this invention of “canning” in jars! Philippe de Girard was said to have invented the can for preserving food, but did not get legal credit for it.

In 1812, the first cannery was established in the US by Robert Ayars in New York City. The popularity of canned foods zoomed during subsequent wars!

In 1861, freezing food was found to preserve it. Clarence Birdseye (now that’s a familiar name, right?) discovered cryogenics  (“flash freezing”) in 1929, which innovated the process. Then, in the 1950s and 1960s, frozen food in ready to heat meals, a/k/a TV dinners became wildly popular! But you need to have electricity and room in the freezer to keep them

In the 70’s and 80’s the big thing was Fast Food, (think McDonalds), but it was not so good for you….

Today there is Freeze Dried food from Thrive Life, which is healthy, tasty, easy to store (even long term), quick and easy to get on the table, and even helps other countries with their food (and other) issues, a program called Thriving Nations.  There are even ready to make meals called Simple Plate that are healthy, chef designed meals, most of which are ready to eat in about 30 minutes! No refrigeration, knives or doing it today, it’s ready when you are! Simple Plate has a shelf life of about 3 months!

Start or Build up your Food Storage!

Have you started your Emergency Food Home Store yet?

Here are some tips on how to get started or build up your Home Store:

  • Be creative if you don’t have much space. You can use closets, under beds, behind and under living room furniture, sideways shelves on wheels in small spaces between cabinets in kitchens, crawl spaces in large tubs, the list goes on and on.

 

  • Very important: Store what you actually eat! I remember my parents had 50 gallon drums of wheat in the basement, and books on how to use it, but we only ever made some bread 4 loaves at a time. If we had experienced the need to eat that wheat, I doubt it would have been any fun…Now I have a Home Store of Thrive Life foods, for a variety of foods I have been eating for over 18 months now. I won’t have any issues if an emergency hits, because I already eat it!
