Thrive Market // My Favorite Way To Shop For Food
I’ve spoken a few different times about my love for grocery shopping, meal planning, and keeping my pantry stocked with healthy essentials, but I have yet to really introduce you to my all-time favorite online resource when it comes to stocking my kitchen with all of the goods.
I am honestly so excited about sharing this post with you guys because this has been the biggest game-changer since we started using it almost a year ago.

You guys know what Costco is, right? In their membership model, you pay an annual fee to have anytime access to wholesale prices for primarily bulk items (in my case, good deals on wine, electronics, and lots of random stuff I stock for the house like toilet paper and paper towels.) Well, think of Thrive as the Costco version of your local organic grocery store. For a small membership fee of $59.95/year you have access to virtually every kind of brand you would find at Whole Foods for a wholesale price.
When we first joined Thrive almost a year ago this May, it was brand new and only had a few different categories (snacks, grains, etc.) to choose from, but they have completely expanded to offering everything from beauty products, laundry detergents, pet food, organic coffee, etc. and I am completely obsessed. The best part, for me at least, is that everything is shipped to your doorstep so there is no need to drive anywhere….it’s truly an online shopper’s paradise.
To give you a breakdown of some of the things I buy on a regular basis (usually once a month), I’m going to do a deep dive into the products we typically purchase by category, the first one being: SUPERFOODS!
You guys, Thrive sells Sun Potion (one of the most high quality superfood brands out there right now) at a wholesale price. For example, this chlorella is typically $32.99 but on Thrive it’s $19.95 (40% discount)!
In addition to my Sun Potion favorites, they sell super high-quality multivitamins, superfoods like acai powder, goji berries, chia seeds, etc., nut butters and protein powders.
We also purchase almost all of our dry goods from Thrive to keep on hand at all times. For example: pastas, lentils, whole grains, dried coconut, crackers, chips etc. This ensures that we always have staples on hand to whip up a quick meal. My favorites are pictured below!
I’ve mentioned it a few times before, but my husband has a major chocolate addiction (way more so than me!), but is also a stickler for high-quality ingredient chocolate (i.e. no fillers, no refined sugars, etc.) and Thrive has the best selection at a steep discount — good chocolate is not cheap! We are particularly big fans of Primal Chocolate Bars & Coconut Butter Cups as you can see below!
We also buy things like cat food, organic toothpaste, facial toner, soap, laundry detergent, etc. from Thrive because, to be honest, it’s just so much more convenient to have everything shipped to our front door.
My Favorite Pantry Staples
chips + popcorn
coconut milk + coconut cream
Other Fun Thrive Items
shampoo + conditioner
organic pet food
the list goes on and on!
Have you guys tried Thrive? As you can tell, I’m totally obsessed!
