Peach Smoothies In A Jar. . .

How amazing is this. Freeze Dried Fruits, that hold all the nutritional value of the fresh stuff but it's in a JAR. NO cutting up, peeling and NO fruits gone bad. Which equals less waste, and a quicker breakfast or snack. 
And these are super Yummy!!!! 
For a healthier twist I added some Freeze Dried Spinach to one of them.

1/2 cup Thrive instant Milk(needs to be instant)
1/2 cup Thrive Peach Drink Mix 
1/2 cup Thrive Spinach (optional) 
1 3/4 cup Thrive Peaches
1/2 cup Thrive Strawberries
1/2 cup Vanilla Yogurt Bites
2 Tbsp of Sugar

Add ingredients to the Jar, you may have to smash it down a bit if you put spinach in it, add the oxygen absorber and seal tight with a new lid. Lasts up to 7 years.

2 Cups Ice
2 Cups Cold Water

When making the Smoothie:
Open jar, take out oxygen pac, Add 2 cups of cold water, 2 cups of Ice, and the Contents of the Jar. Blend until smooth. 
Makes approximately 4 1/2 cups

How much Food is in Your Food Storage

Let's talk food storage for a minute....Have you ever wondered just how much food you are getting in a #10 can?  It can be really hard to tell! 

Do you sometimes look at the food you have in food storage and wonder what you really have? 

 I wanted to really know what I was getting for my money with THRIVE.  Then I was sent this e-mail from my oh so gifted trainer who recently bought a bunch of her favorite THRIVE foods fresh from the grocery store.  She came home and cooked them and / or chopped them into the same size pieces as Her THRIVE. She made a little bit of an adjustment for the THRIVE foods that take up a bit less volume freeze dried than fresh.  Then compared.  She figured out just how much She was getting for her money with THRIVE.  For example, She learned that one #10 can of Zucchini has about 15 small zucchini in it. 

Attached to that email she sent was A cute little thing that she drew up of what she could buy at the 
 "THRIVE Grocery store" for $200.  Here is what She found. I found it this super helpful and Awesome!!!! I hope it helps you get a clearer picture of just how THRIVE compares to what you are buying at the grocery store.  adapted from Misty Marsh

HashBrowns And Eggs in a Jar! 

This is by FAR everyones favorite! If you only do one meal in a Jar, this is the one to do. It is the tastiest breakfast!!! And its great to take for camp outs or any over night excursions

This truly is scrumptious. Unlike most of the Meals in a Jar, this one is a two step process. On the bottom of the Jar is the hash-brown then at the top we have a sandwich baggy full of the eggs. Don't be fooled by the thought of Freeze Dried Eggs, they really are good. 

Recipe for the Hash Browns and Eggs
Hash Browns:
2cups Thrive Diced Potatoes
1 cup Thrive Sausage
tbsp Thrive Butter Powder
1tbsp Thrive Chefs choice Seasoning
Scrambled Eggs:
In a Separate baggy 
2/3 cup Thrive Scrambled Egg Powder
2tbsp Thrive Red and Green Peppers
1/3 cup Thrive Shredded Cheddar Cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Like I said before this is a two step process. So when doing this Start putting the Potatoes, Sausage and butter in the Jar first. In a Baggy Add the Scrambled egg mixture; Egg powder, Red and Green Peppers, Cheese, and salt and pepper. Put the bag of Eggs on top in the Jar then the oxygen absorber on top of the that, no there is no need for an oxygen absorber in the bag of eggs. Put the lid on.

To Cook: (Hash Browns)
Open up the Jar, take out the oxygen absorber and the Bag of Eggs
Boil 4 cups of water and add to the potato mixture in a pan. Let stand for 10 minuets to rehydrate. After 10 minuets Turn on Heat and bring to boil. Once its reached a boil uncover, turn down heat and cook until Brown and crispy. The Key is to not over stir your potatoes to avoid mushy potatoes.


While the Hashbrowns are rehydrating add 1/3 cup water to the bag of eggs or you can mix it all in a bowl. Let eggs sit for 10min. After 10 min cook eggs like normal

Italian Style Vegetable Soup

I love this soup mix! Im a sucker when it comes to vegetable soups, its one of the best ways to eat your veggies. 
And seriously this really does look yummy, right!?

Again this one is going to be a shake down to make all the ingredients fit.
Italian Vegetable Soup Recipe

1/2 cup Thrive Tomato dices
1/2 cup Thrive Cauliflower 
1/2 cup Thrive Zucchini
1/4 cup Thrive Potato Chunks
2 Tbsp Thrive Celery Dices
2 Tbsp Thrive Red and Green Peppers
2 Tbsp Thrive Spinach(optional) 
2 Tbsp Thrive chopped Onions
1 tsp Thrive Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder 
1/2 tsp Chicken Bouillon

Put the oxygen absorber at the top then put the lid on. Make sure the oxygen absorber worked in a few hours( the top of the lid will click if it didn't work ) 
Store. You can store these anywhere from 5 to 7 years. 

Making this takes a bit more time than the meals we've done in the past but  Still just as Simple. 
 Pour Ingredients from Jar into a pot with 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. 

 Cover and simmer for at least 30 minuets, you can go longer if you desire.

Beef Stew In a Jar

All of my Soup category "Meals In a Jar" take a bit longer than the actual meals, but worth it. What we found though is that we prefer a beef base over the tomato base, however. I think the soups are great thing to have sitting around, because in the colder months who does't occasionally crave a good hearty soup especially when its not in a can ( feeling healthy) :) 

Recipe For Beef Soup in A Jar:
    Add each ingredient in order. You'll need to shake the jar gently after each ingredient to make everything fit.

1 cup Thrive Instant Red Beans( or 1 cup potatoes, this to me tastes better)
1/2 cup Thrive Tomato Powder (or Thrive Brown Gravy, 1/4 cup. This also I prefer much more)
1/3 cup Thrive Corn
1/3 cup Thrive Diced Carrots
1/3 cup Thrive Peas
1 tbsp of chefs Choice Seasoning
1tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup onions
1 cup Thrive Beef Dices

 Assembly: Put all ingredients in order into the Jar. You will have to shake the jar gently to make this all fit especially if your doing the potatoes instead of beans. After everything is in put in the oxygen absorber and put lid on. Check next morning to make sure the Jar sealed ( clicks are no good). Store up to 5 years

Making the Beef Soup:
Remember to Remove the oxygen absorber

 Combined 6 cups of water in a stew pot, bring to boil. Reduce Heat and simmer 20-25min.

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo In a Jar

We have finally come to My Favorite Meal and almost all the people who tried it too!!! Its Creamy goodness that doesn't require me to slave away in the kitchen. And keeps me from going out to eat, because its that good. 

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo recipe
1/3 cup Thrive Creamy White Sauce 
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
3 Tbsp Thrive Dry Sour Cream(optional)
1/4 Tsp pepper
1 cup Thrive Boccoli 
1 cup Thrive Chicken 
1 1/2 cups noodles

Put all ingredients in Quart Jar, add oxygen pac on top then seal. Check the seal the next morning. 

Cooking the Chicken Broccoli Alfredo:

Add 4 cups of hot water to sauce pan or electric skillet along with the jar mix. 

Let sit 10 min before cooking. This just allows the food to rehydrate

Check tenderness, then serve when done. 

This is a great meal to have especially when you would rather go out to eat due to time. This is a Great Dish!!! Better than french fries in more than one way.
