When we can, we try to buy as many organic grocery products as possible, but admittedly, sometimes we’ll find ourselves reaching for conventional instead simply due to the higher price tag. Luckily, we just discovered a new online service that offers thousands of organic pantry items at a lower cost! Have you heard of Thrive Market? It’s fairly new to us, but we’ve been testing it out the past few months. The concept is pretty straightforward. You pay for a yearly membership like you would at a place like Costco or Sam’s Club and then have access to hundreds of organic products online to shop from all year long! Shipping is free on orders over $45, and you’ll quickly discover your favorite organic and natural brands are 25- to 50-percent lower than what you see in stores. You can try it out for yourself and get $60 in free groceries here ($20 off your first three purchases of $49 or more), and below, Caitlin’s sharing a recipe for her favorite November breakfast—pumpkin Greek yogurt and granola made with products she ordered on Thrive Market.
This has been my favorite breakfast to eat the past few weeks and it couldn’t be easier to make! I fill a bowl with Greek yogurt (either vanilla or plain), add a big scoop of my homemade pumpkin sauce and top it with Purely Elizabeth granola, chia seeds, goji berries and whatever fresh fruit I have on hand. While I love the idea of a smoothie bowl, this is just so much easier!
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon heavy cream
Dash of cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and mix over low heat until combined and heated through, roughly five minutes. Cool before eating and store in the fridge.
