thrive market product list calm tea acv candy healthy living by tsc

It’s no secret that I love Thrive Market. You’ve heard me talk about it everywhere because it really is that good. They make shopping for healthy items easy and affordable. No need to sift through aisles of products reading all of the ingredients. Everything has been reviewed and approved.

They make it easy with categories from vegan to paleo, household to beauty and everything else in-between. It’s really your one stop shop for healthy living. Plus everything gets delivered so there’s no need to go to the store. Efficient! Just how we like it.

Today I’m sharing TSC MASTER LIST: THRIVE MARKET EDITION ( you can find the full master list here ). These are the items I find myself going back to time and time again. Let’s dive in:

TSC THRIVE MARKET ESSENTIALS LIST

RAO’S HOMEMADE SAUCE

“Rao’s Arrabbiata “Fra Diavolo” Sauce is made with the spice of imported crushed red pepper, imported Italian tomatoes, imported pure Italian olive oil and blended with fresh garlic, fresh basil, black pepper and oregano.”

 There’s something about Rao’s that just tastes SO MUCH BETTER than any other sauce. Once you try it you’ll understand. I love using this with lentil pasta and Brussels sprouts for an easy and quick weeknight meal. Throw on some nutritional yeast and you’re good to go. You can also use this to make gg pizzas which are loaded with fiber to fill you up. The options are endless really.

YUM EARTH CANDY

“When you go picking for strawberry licorice, settle on YumEarth. This fully USDA Certified Organic Licorice is not like the other candies on the market. It’s made from ingredients like real fruit juice and organic cane sugar and no high fructose corn syrup, soy, or dairy anywhere in the bag. It’s gluten-free, too!. Great for kids and adults.”

Let’s be real – sometimes you have a sweet tooth and you just want some candy. Well it’s time to say buh-bye to red dye and artificial flavoring and say hello to Yum Earth Candy. This stuff satisfies your sweet tooth and tastes delicious. I love snacking on this during movies or while driving in the car from San Diego to Los Angeles. Plus with Halloween coming up, this makes the perfect substitute. You can even create a candy bar for your next party.

ORGANIC PUMPKIN

“Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin is rich, smooth and delicious, AND ready to use in everything from baked delights to entrees. Use it in a variety of recipes including pies, muffins, cookies, soups…even chili!”

Every morning each of our dogs has a scoop of this pumpkin in their food. They LOVEEEE it. Literally though, they live for their pumpkin. It’s great for providing fiber & beta-carotene to promote vitamin A. You can also use this to make a homemade pumpkin spice latte and skip the sugar-filled one from Starbucks.

ROSEWATER MIST

“Experience the delicate floral scent of real roses any time of the year! Rosewater is truly versatile with numerous benefits from culinary gourmet flavoring to uplifting cosmetic mist. Use as a perfume, body splash or add to your hair rinse or bath water. You can also combine with therapeutic oils to make your own complexion formula.”

There’s nothing better than a good mist. I even wrote a whole post dedicated to why I’m obsessed. This smells delicious, it’s refreshing and it provides extra hydration for dewy skin. Who doesn’t want that? Mist yourself midday while you’re walking to grab coffee, mist yourself in the car while in traffic, mist yourself at night before bed. There’s really no wrong time to mist.

CALM TEA

“Calm Tea features a proprietary formula that provides a highly absorbable, water-soluble magnesium in ionic form. It gradually reduces accumulated calcium, giving fast relief to many symptoms of magnesium depletion. CALM mixes easily with water for a convenient dose of magnesium.”

I’m obsessed with this powder. It’s like Xanax but all natural. Really relaxes you. BIG time. I swear I’m so high-strung & this stuff really zens me out. Highly recommended. I add this to mint tea ( just a scoop ) or to warm water.

RAW ALMOND BUTTER

“Rich and creamy Artisana Organic Raw Almond Butter is made from 100 percent organic nuts and crafted in small batches for the freshest quality. And without any artificial dyes, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup, it packs in the nutritional profile of a superfood. A single serving provides seven grams of protein, keeping you feeling full.”

My raw almond butter is added to: apples with chia seeds, baby carrots, PB & J on an open-faced sandwich, celery, banana slices, smoothies, oatmeal, a piece of dark chocolate, sweet potatoes, TSC two ingredient pancakes, &/or any baking recipes. Add cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, or nutmeg for added flavor. Raw almonds are rich in monounsaturated fats, which help your heart without raising your cholesterol levels. YUM.

INDIAN HEALING CLAY

“Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is bentonite clay from Death Valley, California, where it is sun-dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees Fahrenheit. With more than 50 natural minerals inside, it makes for a nourishing face mask or skin treatment. It can lift pimples and blackheads right out of your pores.”

I don’t care if your complexion is acne prone, oily, or dry, if this mask isn’t in your medicine cabinet you’re seriously missing out. This secret mask has been named “the world’s most powerful facial” and it’s under $5.

All you do is mix this powdered clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar &/or a bit of water. Use a bowl & spoon ( preferably non-metal ) & stir the mixture well so it turns to paste. Apply the clay to your face & allow it to harden for ten minutes ( sometimes I even leave it on for twenty mins— rebel!!! ). Remove by washing it off with warm water. It’s totally #teamnormal to have some redness.

Pros: it reduces acne scars, shrinks pores, & provides a tightening sensation ( << love!!). And not only can you use this magic mud to beautify, it can be used on skin irritations & bug bites too.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

“Bragg Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar can add a pop of tangy flavor to salads, veggies, and even popcorn, but it also has nutritive benefits with enzymes that may help with digestion, pH balance, and inflammation. Bragg makes theirs with non-GMO, USDA certified organic apples and keeps it raw and unfiltered with the “mother” intact.”

ACV is GREAT for beauty. It’s insane for skin, hair, nails, weight loss, & detoxification. You can create your own toner to balance your pH by combining 1 cup of ACV with 1 cup of cold water. This can help with any sun spots/aging you may have. You can also drink it in the morning as a shot to help promote detoxification to flush your system. Plus you can even use it on your hair by adding a couple of teaspoons into your shampoo to help create healthy, shiny hair.

SILVER

“For thousands of years, silver has played an essential role in safeguarding human health. In fact, until 1938, colloidal silver was the preferred choice of physicians for empowering the immune system and stimulating the body’s innate healing processes. Sovereign Silver has only two ingredients: pure silver and pharmaceutical-grade purified water. It does not contain added salt or proteins that render other silver products less effective. Plus, it is packaged in non-leaching glass bottles to guarantee purity throughout its shelf life.”

If you’re starting to feel sick, enjoy some silver! This stuff is an immunity booster. If you feel a cold coming on simply place 1 tsp under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. I also love to take this while I’m traveling to avoid getting sick from the stale airplane air. Be sure to stock up on this for winter time to keep yourself strong so you can continue building your dreams.

OK there you have it! My Thrive Market MUST HAVES. What am I missing? What are you guys all obsessed with?

Huge thanks to Katherine Cosmetics. She filled the goodie bags with so many fun makeup products. Next time you’re in Flower Hill go say hi ( her branding is so fun ).

♡ @foursigmatic powders
We have been drinking this company’s mushroom-infused elixirs and coffees for over a year now. When we need a break from coffee but still need that extra morning jolt and focus, the Mushroom Coffee with Lion’s Mane and Chaga is the way to go.
