The #1 question I get when I do an in-home cooking demonstration with THRIVE foods is:

Where do I start?


People LOVE these foods.  I’ve never shared them with someone who wasn’t impressed with their quality: taste and otherwise.  Right now there are 140 different THRIVE foods, which is fantastic.  But trying to decide where to start can be a bit overwhelming!

THRIVE Smart Start:

Well, the new THRIVE Smart Start pack makes it easier than ever to get started with THRIVE!

The Smart Start Pack provides you with an array of 40 different THRIVE foods (in 52 cans) that you can use to make 26 delicious recipes over the course of 3 months.  You get something from each food group, plus drinks, desserts and even all 12 of the brand-new THRIVE Express!   It can only be purchased through the THRIVE Q.

The purpose of the Smart Start is to allow you to try many different foods and experience how easy it is to use THRIVE daily.  As such, the pack includes everything you need to create delicious meals:

  • 40 THRIVE foods in 52 different cans (16-17 each month)
  • 12 THRIVE Express packs (4 each month)
  • A recipe book with 26 different recipes developed by Chef Todd full of recipes you can make with the foods you will be receiving (a $7 value)
  • Shopping cards for the non-THRIVE items you might need
  • Menu planner to organize your meals each month

If you were to buy all this separately at retail price, it would cost about $177 / month, but with the Smart Start program, it costs just $150 / month!

And at the end of the 3 months, you will be an expert THRIVE chef and have a good idea of which foods will fit into your family’s diet and lifestyle.
