New To Thrive Market? Here’s What You Should Order FirstDecember 9th, 2015

But transitioning over to a digital shopping cart can be overwhelming, even for the most expert grocery buyers. Not exactly sure where to start when it comes to shopping ThriveMarket.com? Here are our top 10 indispensable basics perfect for first-time orders.
Annie’s Organic Green Garlic Dressing
Don’t be fooled by its color—the taste of this dressing inspires even the pickiest eaters to gobble up veggies. Try it as a gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO swap for traditional cream- and preservative-filled ranch dressing.
A perfect alternative to pre-packaged oatmeals that are loaded with sugar, Our oats cook up into a wholesome breakfast in minutes. Tip: top off a bowl with cinnamon, raisins, or even peanut butter.
Packed with protein, anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, and essential amino acids, salmon is an excellent choice for a meal or a filling snack. Since it’s pre-cooked, all you need to do is open the can and add it to your favorite sandwich, blend into a tasty dip, or spread onto crackers.
Made with real simmered chicken bones, this stock is full of naturally occurring protein and collagen, meaning it’s even more nutritious than traditional broth. Bonus: The hearty taste makes it a great base for soups, stews, and sautés.
Alter Eco White Jasmine Rice
Fragrant and delicate, white jasmine rice makes a filling addition to any meal. Alter Eco’s version—sourced directly from Thailand—is the real deal.
Seeds of Change Organic Quinoa and Brown Rice
Individually, brown rice and quinoa are full of fiber and protein. But combined they make a complete meal, perfect for vegetarians and vegans who want to get a hearty dose of protein. Just add a few veggies to this microwaveable dish for a quick and easy dinner that’s super filling.
Whole-wheat noodles “healthify” pasta night without changing up the flavor. Thanks to the extra fiber, you’ll stay fuller for longer. And because whole-wheat pasta has a lower glycemic index than white pasta, your blood sugar levels stay more stable throughout the meal. That means more energy now—without the sugar crash later.
Use this jar of organic crushed tomatoes in your next pasta sauce. Tomatoes are an incredible source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps fight free-radical damage that can cause heart disease, dementia, and cancer.
Earth Balance Creamy Peanut Butter
This creamy PB tastes just like the stuff you loved as a kid, without the added sugars and nasty filler oils. Agave adds a touch of natural sweetness, while flaxseed oil brings heart-healthy omega-3s.
You can find all of these products, and thousands more, at Thrive Market for 25 to 50 percent off regular retail prices!
