Did you know.....
That the Thrive website is loaded with recipes?  You can find all sorts of things on there.  It's a great resource to help getting you to use the items in your pantry that you use everyday.  One recipe I found and I LOVE (because now I can make it clean and non-gmo)  is a bouillon recipe.

I have Veggie, Chicken or Beef Bouillon saved to my recipe box.  I can save any recipe that I want from the site, so I can go back to find it easier at a later time.  Here are some pics.  It's so easy, you just measure out and blend.  Love Love Love it!

If you haven't tried Thrive freeze dried chopped onions, do yourself a favor and order some already!!!

All measured

July is here!'s been here for a few days.  What tipped me off was all the fireworks.  Hopefully everyone enjoyed celebrating the 4th of July.  There are some great specials this month (ok - so I say that every month.  I just love Thrive!).  My favorite picks would have to be the pineapple (which is new And improved!), asparagus, and the butternut squash.  There are also 2 meats on sale!  I have plenty of meat right now, but this is the time to stock up.....when they are on sale.  Also Thrive has introduced a new product this month - Shredded Beef!  I love shredded beef and now that I can get it through Thrive, it will save me so much time.  Meal planning just got easier because I won't have to defrost a roast and cook it all day!  Check out all the wonderful products Thrive has to offer at  Oh and FYI - Consultants and Q members can order the shredded beef today.  Otherwise it is available on July 10.  Become a consultant or a Q member today for first dibs on goodies throughout the year!  At the end of the post I also added a video of a great deal from Beach Body.  I love Beach Body On Demand and you'll get it for a full year (on top of other goodies - like a one month supply of Shakeology) when you purchase a challenge pack right now!  You can sign up at  Have a great July!

June Thrive Specials

Hey everyone!  Can you believe June is almost over?  Make sure to catch the June sale items before the end of the month at  One of my favorites is the ground beef.  I love making soup with it.  It's super easy to just scoop it out and refresh in some stock.  They are like tiny little meatballs of deliciousness.  And the Q special, that is available to all Q members, is the especially delicious Fuji Apple Slices.  Enjoy the rest of your June!

I started a motivational group on Facebook called Get It Together.  I wanted to share my first post.

Daily Affirmation: Start your day off with a big dose of "I believe in myself". Write it down and say it daily. In the grand scheme of things, how You feel about yourself makes all the difference. If you believe in yourself, negative words or actions by others -towards you - will not cause you to derail from your path of happiness (as much). It may sting a little, but if you believe in yourself, you'll be able to get back up, dust the dirt off and continue your journey. You've heard it before - Haters gonna Hate 😆- and that's the truth, but that's not your problem unless you make it your problem. So whenever you are feeling a shaky about your dreams reaffirm to yourself "I Believe in Myself". I believe in you!  💜~ Erin

Baked Stuffed Peppers

I think these are one of my new favorites.  It's funny because I never really made stuffed peppers before starting the Whole 30 diet.  I've made these a few times and really love them.  This is one of those recipes that cut my time in preparing by using Thrive ingredients.  Make sure to order yours at  I have the older version of the beef where the pieces are smaller, I haven't tried it with the newer version may add a few extra minutes to your refreshing time.  But I have tried the new version of the beef in soup and man do I love it!  Also the cauliflower rice was some that I had in the freezer from a batch I made last week.  I took it out and it really only sat out maybe 20 minutes before using it.

Baked Stuffed Peppers 

1 1/2 cups Thrive ground beef (old version)
1 cup water
2 tbsp of Thrive tomato power mixed in 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup Thrive freeze dried chopped onions 
1 tbsp Majestic Garlic garlic spread (or just fresh garlic or garlic powder)
1 tsp ground cumin
2 cups cauliflower rice
3 green bell peppers

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.  I basically just put everything in a large skillet (except for the bell peppers), starting with the beef and water, and let it heat at about med-low.  I have a gas stove, so it might be different for you.  You don't want it boiling, but a low simmer is ok.  If you find that all your water is soaked in and you aren't ready to fill the peppers yet, you can turn it down or add a little more water.  Once I get everything in there, I clean, cut and remove the innards of the green peppers, stirring the mix occasionally.  Usually the mix is ready by then to start load into the peppers, but use your own judgement whether or not you feel all of the liquids have been absorbed.  Load your peppers, put them on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove and serve.  I like to top mine with guacamole!  Enjoy!

Stuffed and ready to bake

Out of the oven and ready to serve

Topped with some guacamole.  Yum!

Breakfast Bowl

Here is a no sugar added breakfast recipe that tastes great and gets together very quickly.  The apples give it a nice sweetness and crunch.   The almonds add some protein to balance out the natural sugars from the fruit and forces you to chew your food properly :) .   This recipe made 2 servings in our house.  No dairy, not gluten, no added sugars, vegan.


1 small fuji apple diced
2 ripe bananas sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp lite coconut milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp shredded coconut

Add everything to a small pot and simmer on low for a few minutes until heated through.  Enjoy

Beef Vegetable Soup Using Thrive

I made some beef vegetable soup last night and I'm glad I wrote down what I put into it because my family LOVED it.  We ate it all.  I know a lot of people start out with Thrive a little stumped with ways they can use it every day so I figured I would share the recipe.  And hopefully I'll get better at sharing more recipes.  The flavoring is to our liking, feel free to add or subtract as you please.  I can't guarantee your family will love it, but my family sure did!

Beef Vegetable Soup

Add these ingredients to pot and let simmer for 45min – 1 hour
8 cups water
2 cubes of chicken bouillon
1 ½ cups of Thrive ground beef
1 can basil diced tomatoes
4 tbspn Thrive tomato powder

½ cup Thrive red peppers
¼ cup Thrive carrots
¼ cup Thrive green beans
Feel free to add any other Thrive veggies
1 tsp garlic powder
½ – 1 tsp sea salt
1-2 tsp Simply Organic all purpose seasoning

After simmering for an hour or so add
