Those of you who know me know that I’m a fuss-free person who believes that good things don’t have to come with an expensive price tag.
I’ve always looked for good prices and discounts wherever possible, because even though I believe in living a life of abundance, my parents have always taught me the values of being money-conscious and saving where possible.
I’m a huge believer in having habits that are sustainable and that don’t burst the bank.
In the same way that I shop for clothes and shoes of value, I also apply this lifestyle ethic to my eating habits.
In the past one year since I’ve started eating healthier – moving away from processed foods and gravitating more towards real, wholesome foods – I’ve realized that some times though, healthier food choices do come with more hefty prices, especially if you lean towards gluten-free or grain-free recipes like I do.
In our fast-paced modern world, there is such a wide range of unhealthy junk food available at a fraction of the price of wholesome meals.
Naturally, this often results in many choosing to eat cheap and unhealthy food as opposed to slightly more expensive but nutritious meals.
Most of my friends tell me that one of the obstacles preventing them from eating and cooking with healthier ingredients is that these healthier foods are often more expensive.
Many blog readers also comment once in a while telling me that the ingredients used in some of my grain-free recipes (such as almond flour) are beyond their budget.
I understand the dilema, and feel that it’s a pity for people to choose what they know is not good for health, simply because of cost.
But good news friends! Healthy, sustainable eating is now possible!
I want to tell you about Thrive Market, a US-based online marketplace with a mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone.
Unlike other big box retailers, Thrive Market offers all the premier natural food brands that you would find at a health food store, in everyday sizes, at wholesale prices.
According to Thrive Market, their prices are always at 25 -50% below traditional retail prices (crazy right??).
It doesn’t matter whether you eat Paleo, gluten-free, vegan or adopt some other health diet – you will be able to find something that fits your dietary preferences and values at Thrive Market. This means that everyone can find foods at much cheaper prices than those at other retailers.
I always feel inspired by businesses who make it their goal to benefit society.
Thrive Market not only makes healthy eating affordable for us common folk, they also donate a free Thrive Market membership to a low income American family for every paid membership (how awesome is that??). They are currently working with value-aligned organizations such as Boys and Girls Club of America to distribute memberships, with many more in the pipeline for 2015.
Because low-income families tend to be the ones who eat unhealthy diets and suffer the long-term health consequences of those choices, I am very motivated by the fact that Thrive Market’s social mission is to make access to healthier choices easier on the pocket.
If you’re US-based and love to eat healthy wholesome foods at wholesale prices, I encourage you to test out Thrive Market, which lets you register for free and is giving a 15% discount on your first order!
It offers free shipping within the US (for purchases over $49), and Thrive Market members get access to the whole range of 3000+ products on the marketplace for a low annual fee of just $59.95 (less than $5 a month).
Don’t postpone healthy eating any longer. Choose health.
Start saving on healthy food and ingredients today – I’m sure you won’t regret it.
