My Best Mom Hack: #4 Easier

If you watched the video, you saw me show you three balanced, nutritious meals in under 10 minutes! And that’s what really sold me on Thrive Life as a concept. Yes it’s more nutritious, fun and tasty, and super fresh, but I adore how it is SO FLIPPIN’ SIMPLE!!

I am a Thrive Life Independent Consultant (see Disclosure).

Busy evening? Bye bye washing, defrosting and chopping – I don’t have time for you! Plus if you got somewhere to be or better things to do with your evening, the simplified prep means less mess to clean up too. With the extra time I have in the evenings, my husband and I get caught up with our client work, go for walks to the park with the kids, or do a longer bedtime routine.

So Easy Your Kid Can Do It!

Another bonus – my children LOVE helping out when we’re cooking up a Simple Plate Meal Kit or adding Thrive Life ingredients. It is easy for them to scoop, dump ans stir. I am a firm believer in encouraging children to eat a large variety of healthy foods from a young age, and helping cook up dinner is a wonderful way to include them and build this into their value system.

To Go Meals

Running out the door or trying to save money on eating out for work lunches? To Go ready-made mini meals are a quick convenient option you can throw in a purse, backpack or work drawer.

Watch for new To Go bowl flavours!

Jar Meals

Thank you to “Thrive Life with Cathy and Melanie” for use of this photo!

Pretty jar meals are all the rage right now. Do them up as gifts for new moms or others needing quick healthy options (so all they have to do is dump into a pot and add water). Or fill the jar partially full (so you have room for liquid) and you got your work lunch all together for you in one handy jar.

More Jar Meal Recipe Ideas

All you do is throw in your ingredients into your thermos or jar, and when you get to work or school, pour in the hot water! It doesn’t need to be soup either. You could use our instant rice in a rice/meat/veggie dish, oatmeal and fruit, our instant quinoa for a vegetarian quinoa dish, or more!

And you can do jar meals for dinner too for the whole family! Here are some of my favourite recipes from the Thrive Life Recipe Site:

You can seal these dishes in mylar bags and take them camping too!

Dinner in a Jiffy!

And as for the dinner I showed you in the video… did you ever think you could have cooked veggies, roast beef, and fresh mashed potatoes done for you in five minutes?  I sure didn’t before discovering this food. And it was delish! My picky husband enjoyed it too (he got home from work just in time to have the food I made in the video as his late lunch).

Great for Keto or Any Diet

It is really easy to “Thrive-a-lize” existing recipes too to meet any of your dietary requirements. Check out this Delish Cauilofower Recipe I made. I cut down my prep time by using Thrive Life spinach and green onions, plus I replaced the panko crumbs the original called for with crumbled dried broccoli to make it truly keto.

Since Thrive Life offers individual ingredients, you can shop just like you would at your regular grocery store, regardless of your diet! I have customers who are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, keto, etc, and they are able to shop for what works for them!

Want to see more dinner ideas using our grocery line of instant grains and freeze dried veggies, fruits and meats? Visit my Facebook page (@kmeyers.thrivelife) for more videos and to find my private group.

    I would have to do my chicken and beef enchiladas. Plus I could powder some veggies and throw them in the fillings.

  2. I love having the veggies on hand pre washed and chopped to go onto any dish. Countless times I have been in need of a ingredient for a recipie and thrive life has come to my rescue.
