|Fave Savory Thrive Market Snacks & Almond Butter French Toast|
Hello my dears!!! How are y'all?
In the last few months, I have gotten so many questions about my favorite products from Thrive Market, and I totally get it! If you didn't get a chance to read about Thrive in my last post, it's as simple as this: think Whole Foods meets Costco online. Healthy products at majorly discounted prices! Swoon.
As amazing as Thrive Market is, the sheer number and variety of goodies can be overwhelming and intimidating. But fear not: I have spent hours and hours scouring the Thrive categories, keeping up with the best sellers, new additions, top reviews and most importantly, trying countless products myself!
Because there are so many Thrive delights that I use and adore, I am going to split this into a few posts. Also 'cause I want to make sure y'all will stick around to read just a few sentences about this killer Almond Butter French Toast Recipe!
So without further ado, here is a list of my Top 6 FAVORITE Thrive Market Healthy Snacks!
If you a) like salty crunchy snacks and b) like the idea of eating an entire bag of something in one sitting that is actually good for you, this is the perfect snack! These nutrient-dense kale chips are insanely addicting, with these cheesy umami-packed flavor and satisfying texture. Although still a little pricy, I love having these around as a treat when I'm experiencing serious munchies and don't want to polish off a bag of potato chips.
The concept of this bar might sound strange, but one bite and you'll be hooked! Made from 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, these low-carb and high protein bars will curb cravings and keep your blood sugar balanced between meals. I've tried several flavors and this is my favorite, with the tiny pop of sweetness from apples. I stuff them into my husband's golf bag when he's going to be gone for a while. If you like things like Slim Jims and beef jerky, you will be smitten by this humanely-sourced delicious bar!
Oh my lawdy, these chips! Cooked in coconut oil instead of damaging vegetable oils (like sunflower, safflower, corn or soybean), these chips are the perfect blend of crunchy, salty and sweet. Hands down, the best chips I've ever had, and you can feel good about putting them in your body! I suggest enjoying them with guacamole or hummus, as a handful can quickly turn to several!
The best way to describe these addictive crackers is a mix between cheddar Goldfish and Wheat Thins. They have a mild cheddar cheese flavor but all of the crunchy, slightly sweet goodness of a Wheat Thin, and I cannot get enough! However, unlike those processed snacks, these are full of protein & healthy fats from almonds, so you actually can stop after a serving. My favorite way to enjoy them is straight-up, but they're also amazing with hummus! These are a perfect option if you have kids—I'd wager they have no idea they're eating something healthy!
These are my other favorite gluten-free crackers! Unlike many brands, they have a short & wholesome ingredient list, and they are incredibly versatile. I love them best with peanut butter and banana or mashed avocado, salt and chili flakes. If you love traditional Matzo crackers but need a gluten-free option, definitely give these a try. My one suggestion is to add a note to your order to pack these extra carefully, as they tend to break. However, if they do, Thrive will send you a refund or new product ASAP without question.
That's it for now!!! I hope this was helpful, and stay tuned in the coming weeks for my favorite chocolate treats, granolas/cereals/bars, condiments pantry staples and one-off specialty items.
And before you go, just a quick word about today's FRENCH TOAST recipe! Ridiculously easy and packed with indulgent flavor, this healthier take on the traditional brunch item will make any average week day feel special. I chose this recipe with my first Thrive post, because I am hooked on the Thrive Market almond butter; it is seriously the creamiest and most delicious almond butter I've ever had!
I've been enjoying this nonstop recently, and it makes me so excited for breakfast! Feel free to play around with various breads, as well as other nut or seed butters. Halve the recipe or double it, if you like!
