Number One Reason You Need to Be Eating Freeze-Dried Foods

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

Surprising Nutrition, Convenience and Economy Benefits!

We have three meals per day – but we usually don’t consider all the choices we make concerning the foods we eat. Many of our meals are so routine that they require no thought at all. For example, do you eat basically the same food every day for breakfast? Do you rotate between two or three lunches? Are your dinner choices repeated week after week? Are you still hungry – adding unhealthy snacks between each meal?

There is nothing wrong with eating the foods that you like. But do you often choose meals based on factors other than food quality? Do you make food choices based on a tight schedule for work or family activities versus taste and nutrition? How often do you knowingly eat meals that you know are neither healthy nor economical?

Our diet has devolved over the years to prioritize convenience over nutrition. Collectively, every year we eat more prepackaged foods and less fresh food. Every year we eat more “fast food”, both in terms of the number of servings and the dollars we spend. Every year we “supplement” our three meals per day with nearly the same empty calories from soft drinks and snack foods. Every year we face the evidence of increasing obesity AND declining health due to nutritional deficiencies.


We CAN’T keep doing the SAME things and expect anything to CHANGE!

In this article series, I am going to ask you to critically examine your food choices. You need to stop and consider not only your menu choices but the individual foods that comprise your meals. My goal is to educate you on the many advantages of planning healthy menus and incorporating freeze-dried foods into these meals.


Number 1: Reduce meal preparation time.

Very little of the fresh, whole foods you buy are ready to eat.

First, you need to wash off any dirt, fertilizer, and pesticides. Then you need to slice, core, peel, chop, and trim the raw foods. The actual cooking time may be less than the prep time. Often some parts of the menu require separate cooking preps to sauté, brown, fry, reduce, etc. before combining with other ingredients.


No wonder “processed foods” dominate many home pantries, refrigerators, and freezers. We are always looking for any time-saving shortcuts. Who has time to spend an hour or more preparing meals that are devoured in minutes?!

Thrive freeze-dried foods do not require any preparation. Every food has been prepared FOR YOU in a state-of-the-art, USDA and FDA-certified facility. The washing, peeling, dicing, chopping, and processing is done before the foods are freeze-dried. Thrive meats are also trimmed, diced, flavored, and prepared FIRST, then freeze-dried. Many raw foods are ready to eat. Other fruits, vegetables, and meats simply need to be rehydrated for a few minutes before being added to your bases or stocks.


That’s it! Instead of preparing many individual ingredients, you simply measure out Thrive Foods to complete your recipe. And if you have ever skipped a recipe because you didn’t have all the ingredients, your Thrive Foods pantry comes to the rescue again. Now you can have a full pantry of various sliced, diced, and powdered fruits and vegetables on hand – without any worries of spoilage.


Here is an example of a TASTY meal your family will LOVE prepped in TEN minutes, then served in only TEN more minutes, with ZERO food waste:
