Whenever I find something cool I like my readers to know—especially my recipe testers. Remember the Zumba cookbook we worked on together, and how a lot of what we made featured ingredients that weren’t necessarily unusual, but nonetheless not usually found in our cabinets and pantries? We needed whey protein powder, various nut oils, vegan cake mixes and other organic staples. And even if we are not working on a healthy lifestyle book right now, we still occasionally need these things.
Bring in the newly launched online wholesale store, Thrive Market. They sell a huge inventory of all natural and organic products at fire sale prices, and are worth checking out—especially since they sponsor a low income family with every new membership. My assistant, Jennifer Russon already went shopping, and said the $60 annual fee pretty much paid for itself at checkout.
So if you like retail therapy and helping your fellow man out at the same time, check out Thrive Market’s mission statement here: https://thrivemarket.com/our-mission. Their thinking on paying it forward and showing your love through good food matches mine to a T. : )
