Family Grocery Haul with Thrive Market

Getting groceries has been a bit of a challenge these days. Between the low inventory, the mask-wearing requirements, and the awkward social distancing, we've decided to take advantage of curbside pickups and the convenience of grocery delivery services like Thrive Market. This is not a paid post, but rather a post I've been meaning to share for a while now since I'm often asked what I eat and what I feed my kids. I hope that within this post you're able to find healthier alternatives for you and your family.

First, let me explain what Thrive Market is in case you're unfamiliar. Thrive Market is an American e-commerce membership-based retailer offering natural and organic food products that ship directly to your door. One of my favorite features on their site is the option to shop by your personal dietary preferences. You can select vegan, paleo, raw, organic and so on, making it really easy to shop for what will meet your needs.

Although each shipment looks a bit different for us, here is what's in this box...

For Mom:

Thyroid function is incredibly important for your energy, mental focus, metabolism, and so much more. Over the course of a year, I haven't been feeling like myself. I did some blood work back in February and the results were "elevated thyroid levels". I've been diligently taking notes on what's helping me feel better; I'll be sharing those with you in an upcoming post. For now, these are the supplements I'm using to give my thyroid the nutrients it needs to boost its optimization.

The thyroid supporting supplements I use from Thrive Market are:

Some snacks and drinks to support thyroid health are...

  • Seaweed: Great source of Iodine, plus they're super yummy and easy to take on-the-go.

  • Ashwagandha Tea: Calms anxiety and add antioxidant defense

  • Brazil Nuts: High in Selenium which is essential to thyroid hormone metabolism.

  • Macadamia Nuts: Also high in Selenium that protects you from infection and damage resulting in oxidative stress.

  • Pili Nuts: This extra delicious nut is an excellent source of magnesium which we need to reduce insulin resistance and lower cholesterol

  • Flackers (Flax seed crackers): These are so yummy!! These touch my soul with their crispy, crunchy texture. I love using these to scoop tuna or egg salad. Yum. Yum. Yummy!!

For Family

All kids love snacks and mine are no exception. For this reason I aim to only have healthy options for them to grab.
