  • Use it in quesadillas, burritos, tacos, soups, dips, salads, pizza, breads-anything that could use some cheesy goodness!  If you like crunch, don’t even refresh it, just throw it on top!
  • If you’re melting cheese on top of a dish, make sure it’s had at least an hour to reconstitute in the refrigerator so that it will be the right consistency for melting.

How Thrive Life Advertises

We have a massive advertising budget…

that goes right to our best customers.

Yes, you read that right! We don’t pay lots of money to gigantic super-rich media corporations so they can air a message that nobody wants to hear, or even believe. We know everyone is skeptical of advertising.

So we use a different model. We use word of mouth through our customers! We know that if you refer a friend to Thrive Life they are more inclined to buy, and you should get part of every order they make.

How does it work?

Be good. But more importantly, DO good.

About the Thrive Life Company

The history of Thrive Life

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!

Through innovation, hard work, balance, the dedication of its founders, officers, workers and consultants, and an unceasing commitment to help people all over the world be prepared, Thrive Life has become the most trusted name in the food industry.

Here’s a short video to help you get to know Steve, Jason and Thrive Life better.

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”!

Thrive Life Makes Healthy, Portable, Easy Baby Food

Thrive Life fruits and veggies make the best baby food! Here’s why:

  • It is all natural, fresh produce! Not cooked, not processed with artificial preservatives, colorants or even sugar or salt, and has the best flavor and nutrition. The fruits and veggies are picked at the peak of ripeness, so they contain all the nutrients and have a better flavor than those picked way before ripeness to get them shipped to stores before they will rot, and then artificially ripened using chemicals and gases.

  • You can save money! A Family size can of Thrive Green Peas makes 21 servings, and Wholesale price is $21.09. That’s $1 per serving, better than fresh*, when you need it!

  • So easy to prepare! Just powder up the fruits or veggies in a blender or food processor in seconds. (Or even a coffee grinder that was never used for coffee beans, I have a tiny one that grinds about 1/2 cup at a time). Add water and voila! Instant baby food.

  • No need to carry those heavy jars or tubs! Thrive Life foods are very light in weight, so you can carry it anywhere easily! Powder it up ahead of time and keep in a snack size zip lock bag or small container, just add water, mix and feed the hungry baby.

  • Won’t go bad! Thrive Life keeps for up to 25 years in unopened cans, and lasts about a year or more even after the can is opened.
