Vegetable Beef Stew Meal-in-a-Jar

Vegetable Beef Stew Meal-in-a-Jar

Meals-in-a-Jar
I love having quick, healthy, delicious meals on hand to make on busy nights. Cooking with Thrive has made my life so much easier with all the time I save on thawing, chopping, and prepping my food. Recently I've taken it even a step further and put together pre-measured meals that I put into a ziplock bags or jars (I like to make 5-10 of one meal at a time since I already have all the cans out anyway). Then when I need dinner in a hurry, I just pour the contents of the jar into a pot of water, simmer for a few minutes and dinner is a go! Here is a sneak peek at one of the recipes found in our Meal-in-a-Jar eCookbook. The beef slices are on…

If any of you are familiar with The Dave Ramsey Show, you'll know that he is an advocate of being thrifty while trying to get out of debt.

Raw Cashew Dream Pie

Raw Cashew Dream Pie

Desserts
I've been attempting to cook healthier lately and minimizing things like refined flour and sugar. I love learning about eating raw foods and a more plant-based diet, however that doesn't always work well with my little ones. So I have been browsing around for healthy recipes that I can enjoy that are also popular with the kiddos. Surprise surprise the desserts seem to be the easiest for them to take a liking to. I've loved how I can use Thrive fruits and vegetables in so many of these healthy recipes to cut prep time down dramatically and to avoid having to run to the store as often to get fresh produce. Thrive has literally been a life-saver (or at least a diet-saver) for me. Without further ado, here is a…

Freeze-Dried Chicken (Thriving in our Kitchen)

Thrive in our Kitchen
Today we are featuring Thrive Life's Freeze-Dried Chicken and showing you exactly how WE use them in our kitchens. Being able to avoid thawing, chopping, and cooking chicken is the difference in being able to get dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes versus getting desperate and having to hit a fast food restaurant. Chopped Chicken vs Seasoned Chicken Slices Seasoned Chicken Slices are large chunks of chicken great for soups, Hawaiian haystacks, or any chicken marinade-type recipe where you want large chunks over rice, noodles, etc. These bigger pieces take longer to rehydrate so be aware of that or hydrate them before adding them to your sauce. Chopped Chicken contains small dices that are perfect to throw into casseroles, pasta sauces, chili recipes, to make chicken salad…
