Jason & Lindsay Budge met Steve & Amy Palmer while going to college. They didn’t immediately realize the great and enduring partnership they would form, but they both felt the need to prepare for the future. The two families had always believed that the keys to happiness are self reliance and the balance of life’s priorities, including education, healthy diet, physical fitness, financial independence, family, and faith in God. However, there was something important missing in their goal of self reliance: a good supply of provisions to prepare for hardships or emergencies. The problem? They didn’t know how to start or what to store for a long term food supply.
In the summer of 2004, Jason and Steve felt a great responsibility to solve this problem. They were facing difficult decisions and challenges—including Lindsay staying in the hospital for 3 months before their birth to save their twin daughters − and they felt they could no longer wait to help everyone become self-reliant. They turned down wonderful opportunities, took the leap of faith, and started Thrive Life.
Thrive Life has developed food rotation products which make food storage and organization manageable. The company also developed a line of food with over 90 super quality, delicious foods. While the decades of shelf life for the food makes it the best solution for long-term food storage, the convenience and great flavor of this easy-to-use food make the perfect ingredients for everyday meal preparation and best nutrition. Thrive Life is committed to having the best foods on the market and making them a part everyday life!

Snack on it right out of the can, or make a “trail mix”. Create your own or use one of these great trail mix recipes! You will need to drink extra water when snacking on dried foods, so this is a great way to get into that habit!
My favorite way: Thrivealize! Use Thrive ingredients in place of “fresh”, canned or frozen when you create your family’s favorite meals! Veggies, meats and sauce powders are great for soups, stews, casseroles and stir-frying. Fruits can be used powdered in smoothies, cake frostings for extra flavor and avoiding food coloring, or whole or broken up in pies, turnovers and sauces.
Chef Boxes: A kit full of ingredients and recipes to make fast and easy meals! About half or more of the recipe is from the box, the rest from your fridge and/or pantry.
Simple Plate: Home delivered, Already prepped Meal kits! Cereal box sized packages, with only cellophane wrapping for each ingredient, hardly any trash! Just add water and perhaps a few pantry items, cook and serve!
Mamma Mia! This is a creamy polenta base infused with cheese, cream, and garlic. On top, a rich medley of veggies and our new Grilled Seasoned Chicken! Try our optional Balsamic Glaze for a tangy topping!

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.
