As a busy mom, running business, and living rural, I am all for easy buttons. If I can get the quality, I’m looking for delivered to me, you bet I’m going to take it. No loading the kids up, there’s 3 of them. No burning gas to driving to so big store. No dragging the kids through the store asking for everything they see. I’ll take the groceries delivered, Thank you.
I do enjoy shopping local and like to patronize local stores as much as possible. But as I said, I live rural. My local town is 300 people. But they do have a nice grocery store. As our family has evolved and shifted our health and diet needs, some of those things I cannot get at the local grocery store. That is where I must either go to a city, HyVee is 1.5 hours away and Walmart 1 hour. Or I can have them delivered.
One of the deliveries I like to use for my groceries is Thrive Market. In our house, we have food sensitivities to gluten, dairy, corn, and soy currently. Thrive makes it easy for me to filter out the ingredients I don’t want, leaving me a smaller list to pick through.
A few of our monthly favorites from Thrive are the Cybele’s Free to Eat veggie noodles. They are grain free, made from different vegetables, and the kids love them! The dried fruits are also a favorite for road trips and winter snacks. They are actually just the fruit! No extra dyes and sugar.
I rotate through the other pantry supplies, olive oil spray, Braggs Liquid Aminos, Balsamic vinegar, Beef gelatin, chia seed, coconut oil, etc.
What I do not buy on Thrive is my bulk staples, the flours, rice, and oats. I have found those are cheaper for me to order bulk elsewhere.
