September Faves: Thrive Market Goodies

Author - Alyssa Rimmer

September Faves - my Thrive Market Goodies from simplyquinoa.com

Hi you! It's hard to believe we're already through September.

It's really starting to feel like Fall around here too. Currently, I'm bundled up in a cozy flannel shirt, wearing my slippers and drinking a cup of chamomile tea. This might just be one of my favorite times of year. I love the smells. I love the crisp, cool air. I love seeing the leaves turn colors.

I just wish I was experiencing it in Vermont. My heart misses that place every year around this time – it's one of the most stunning places on earth.

But anyway…as we're winding down on the month of September, I wanted to introduce a new, monthly series I'll be doing on the blog!

Introducing My Monthly Faves

As I'm sure you have figured out, I love trying new healthy goodies. I'm always testing new food products, trying new ingredients in my cooking and discovering alternative (and toxin-free) beauty products, so I thought it would be fun to share which ones I'm enjoying most with you.

Since health food products can be expensive, most of my experimenting is actually being done with Thrive Market. For the last few months I've been challenging myself to purchasing 1 box of goodies for under $100 and seeing how much money I can save. I have been totally astounded at the amount of things I can pick up and how much money I'm saving!

The first month I saved over $50 and last month it was over $100!

What will we chat about?

Each month I'll be sharing a brand new video showing you everything that's inside my box from Thrive. I'll walk through each of the products I purchased, what I like about each of them and share how much money I'm saving 🙂 I think this is going to be a really fun experiment, we're going to discover some really great new products and I'm excited to have you along for the ride.

So without further ado, here's my September Faves: Thrive Market Goodies video 🙂

  1. This blog is helpful, to get ideas on what they carry that I usually buy anyway. I just started using Thrive based on a free Paleo Mayo offer from Mark Sisson “Daily Apple” (Paleo). Still deciding if $49 annual is worth it. Checking out, today, the price of items that I ordered from Thrive that I normally buy at Trader Joes. … Never purchased Mayo since going healthy many years ago, but the Mayo was pretty good.

    • Yep, I’ve had that mayo before too and liked it. I’m off eggs now so not eating it anymore, but it’s definitely a healthy alternative. I hope you continue to stay with Thrive, I have found that I’ve been able to save the $49 in one order, so to me that makes it worth it 🙂 Good luck!
