Thrive Market – A Fantastic Resource

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 9.16.56 PM

I have had quite a few conversations lately about Thrive Market and what I like about it.  I am a huge fan of Thrive Market - I think that they have a great social mission (when you sign up for a membership they donate a membership to a family in need) and selfishly they have great prices and delivery to my door!  I probably order every 3 - 5 weeks or so.  Here's what I find myself frequently purchasing, and then there are lots of fun new things that pop up and free things that are included … [Read more...]

Zuchini Noodle machine 1

I have a lot of kitchen gadgets, and have been working through trying to cut out the ones that I rarely or never use; however, after hearing from a few friends how cool this one was I decided to try it out.  I ordered via Amazon, there are two models and decided on the Spiralizer based on the reviews and that it has a lifetime guarantee and promised to cut sweet next attempt is baked sweet potato curly fries! Eating Paleo I do miss pasta, and spaghetti squash is good as a … [Read more...]
