Member Stories: Jocelyn Keeps Her Personal Pantry (and her Plant-Based Biz) Stocked With Thrive Market Products

August 10, 2017

At Thrive Market, we’re working hard to make healthy eating easier and more accessible to everyone—but we know it still takes time, energy, and planning. That’s why we’re so inspired by stories from our members. We love hearing how they find creative ways to make wholesome meals a priority. Occasionally, we’ll share their stories with you here on our blog. We hope you love reading them as much as we do!

Jocelyn runs Todo Verde, a Latin-inspired, plant-based food company in Los Angeles, but she didn’t always live a healthy, vegan lifestyle. She grew up eating a diet heavy on meat and packaged food, but when members of her family began experiencing health issues like high cholesterol and diabetes, Jocelyn started reconsidering what she put on her plate.

She learned about Thrive Market while attending a local workshop on veganism. After checking out the website, Jocelyn quickly discovered a helpful feature: the search filter. When she walks into a store—even a healthy store—not everything is plant-based so Jocelyn has to take her time in each aisle, reading labels. But on, it immediately narrows down everything to only show the things she’s interested in.

Now, Jocelyn recommends Thrive Market to her customers. “When someone tries one of our smoothies or agua frescas and asks about the ingredients, I recommend Thrive Market so they can make their own drinks at home.” Some of her favorite ingredients are goji berries, chia seeds, cacao powder, and matcha, which she keeps stocked in her home and business pantries.

“Shopping online has been really good for my budget. I don’t have a lot of time to go out and search for all the different things I need, to be able to purchase in one spot at wholesale prices is really convenient,” she says.
