Ever wonder what a "healthy eater" or nutritionist actually EATS? Take a look at this post where I detail one of my favorite ways to score discounted specialty foods...including one of my family's favorite gluten free and Paleo snacks.

You guys. I did an unboxing video.....where I unboxed my online grocery order. 

I'm kind of embarassed about it, because if I'm being honest, I have to confess that I really harshly judge those weird beauty product subscription unboxing videos that I see on my Facebook feed all the time.  And now I just made one where I unboxed my groceries.

Is this real life???

Also noteworthy: I have a 4 year old, and if you have a 2-4 year old in your life, you probably know that they LOVE the weird YouTube videos where other kids unwrap toys. I cannot overemphasize the word LOVE in this scenario: kids can watch videos of other kids unwrapping toys or taking trinkets out of those cheap plastic Easter eggs indefinitely. 

The video below is the adult equivalent: I unbox my favorite chips and you watch.

In said video I showed some of the random things I had ordered like our favorite chips (all 10 bags of them), some vanilla bean ghee, chipotle lime avocado mayo and some dark chocolate bars (but they were NOT good, so I wouldn't recommend even clicking that link...)  

I didn't show the pantry staples that I already had on hand but get from Thrive Market: Braggs raw apple cider vinegar, tapioca flour and almond flour, coconut oil, PROBIOTICS, coconut aminos and my kids' bubble bath are a few of the other things that I prefer to order to my doorstep rather than track down at 3 different stores to get the best deal.

I wouldn't recommend a product or service that I didn't already use and love, so you better believe I have price checked these items and they are way cheaper to order through Thrive Market than most stores I can get them in, but like I shared in the video, I started ordering groceries from Thrive Market a few years ago when we lived in a rural area where it wasn't even an option to buy most of the specialty products I wanted! 

Now that we moved back to suburban Minneapolis and I have access to many specialty stores, I still order on Thrive Market because it saves me from having to drive to multiple stores in multiple cities.  Not to mention, it feels so decadent to get groceries delivered to my front door.  I think they even taste better when I didn't have to drive anywhere or stand in line to get them.

Speaking of tasting better: The madagascar vanilla bean ghee (butter) that I show in the video is ahhhhhhmazing.  It smells and tastes like vanilla frosting and it has been making my morning coffee an even better experience than usual, but I just had the thought that I need to melt it onto some popcorn sometime soon to get the full effect.  I bet that is just out of this world.

Recap time: For less than $5/month you can have access to a Thrive Market membership (like Costco or Sam's Club) but order everything online, with free shipping over $49, and never leave your couch.  Try it for a month FREE and get 25% off your first order HERE!
