Editor’s Picks: Our Favorite Products in August

August 31, 2022

As Thrive Market employees, we know a lot about our products. We swap recommendations, we sample freely at Thrive Market HQ, and we’re the first to add newly-launched items to our orders. Editor’s Picks is a monthly column rounding up the top three products our blog editors are loving.

In August, we got back into the school-lunchbox-packing groove, discovered a new flavor of an old favorite, cut back on plastic waste, and found a healthier (and vegan) answer to our snack cravings. For these and more of what the Thrive Market blog editors bought and loved this month, read on.

Bragg Liquid Aminos

While many people love this as a gluten-free soy sauce alternative, I use it in just about any savory dish I make—stir-fries, soups, salad dressings, you name it. The salty, smoky flavor just makes everything taste better. 

Rosey by Thrive Market All-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate Bundle

I’m always trying to reduce plastic use around the house, so I really love our new Rosey by Thrive Market cleaning concentrates. I have the glass bottles in different colors for different types of cleaners, but I’m partial to the fresh lemon scent of the all-purpose cleaner. 

Sun Potion Ashwagandha 

I love making a hot drink with this super high-quality ashwagandha. I heat some water, add a teaspoon of the powder, then add a bit of steamed oat milk and sip it before bed as part of my nightly wind-down routine. It’s also great in smoothies if you’re feeling stressed during the day.

Thrive Market Organic Almond Butter

Different occasions call for different nut butters. If you want to drizzle—say, atop a bowl of oatmeal or yogurt—this is the one you want. It also has this uniquely toasty flavor I’ve started to crave. I’m looking forward to baking with it this fall. 

Nutpods Unsweetened Non-Dairy Creamer, Coffee Cake

I think I’ve tried every non-dairy coffee creamer there is, and Nutpods is undoubtedly my favorite. (I have four cartons in my monthly Autoship.) Hazelnut is my go-to, but I recently added this Coffee Cake flavor to my box on a whim, and it’s delightful.

f.a.e. Nourishing Body Lotion, Bulgarian Lavender

My daily routines are sacred to me. I love the scent of lavender when I’m winding down at bedtime, so I welcomed this lotion into my evening ritual. The natural fragrance is subtle and soothing, not overly perfumy, and the lotion is light enough to sink right in.

RIND Chewy Fruit Leather

I started adding these to my son’s lunch box and they’re always a hit. It’s literally just dried fruit—chewy, sweet, and healthy thanks to added fiber from keeping the peels on. We both love this combo of strawberry, pear, and apple. 

RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer

I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to my beauty routine and love products that can be used in multiple ways. This bronzer is definitely a desert island pick! In the morning I apply sunscreen, a tinted moisturizer, then add some bronzer to my cheeks and eyelids for an instant glow.

Numi Organic Rooibos Tea

Too much caffeine makes me jittery, so I usually stick with herbal tea. Numi’s rooibos makes a comforting cup, and I love sipping it after dinner to ease into the evening. I often enjoy it plain, but it’s also great with a splash of almond milk to bring out the nutty flavor.

Thrive Market Non-GMO Grain-Free Puffs, Vegan Nacho

There are some foods you think you’ll miss when you adopt a vegan diet and lifestyle.  Little did I know that a crunchy snack would be one of them. These check every box! They are crunchy yet light, cheesy with a little kick, and deliciously nostalgic, while being a better-for-you snack at the same time. They are always in my cart for sure.

Frooze Balls, Peanut Butter and Jelly
It doesn’t matter if I am out the door and in the car headed for a hike, or looking for a protein-packed snack that will give me energy to power through the work day. Frooze Balls are jam-packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats; while being less than 10 ingredients! All of the flavors are fantastic, but I am a sucker for the peanut butter and jelly. 

Ultima Replenisher Electrolyte Powder, Watermelon

In an effort to reduce my carbon footprint I cut out bottled sports drinks, but found myself left wanting a replacement. Not only was I saving the environment, but at 90 servings per container, I was saving a ton of money as well. The watermelon flavor is refreshing after a long day in the sun and helps replenish your body after a workout.
