We created the Health Hacks on a Budget video course series to make it as easy as possible for everyone to save time and money while living a healthy life. In this series, we share simple recipes, easy tips, and educational information to help you and your family thrive.

We started Thrive Market with one simple goal: to make healthy living accessible to all. We know that cost can be a challenge to many people seeking alternatives to the processed foods and toxic products widely available in grocery and convenience stores everywhere. That's why we've created a place where people can find healthy foods and clean and safe home and body care for 25 to 50 percent less than supermarket prices.

But perhaps an even bigger hurdle is a lack of knowledge about food and the harmful ingredients we're exposed to every day. That's why we decided to make it easy to find all the information you need to Thrive. This is our Health Hacks on a Budget course series—22 quick, easy-to-digest episodes that will teach you everything you need to know to embark on a journey towards healthy eating and living. And it's much easier to do on a budget than you might think.

We break down everything you need to know about sugar, salt, and fat, as well as what organic and gluten-free really mean. We shine a light on the healthy essentials and clean and safe products you need in your kitchen and throughout your home. We even share some quick, easy, and nutritious tips and recipes that the whole family will love.

Without further ado, here is our Health Hacks on a Budget video course series, hosted by health expert, Sara Snow. Check out the introductory video above, watch the YouTube playlist, or access all of the rest of the videos right here on this page.
