Eating a whole foods plant-based diet doesn’t have to be more expensive, and based on my experience with a family of 5, can actually be cheaper! Initially, you may notice more of an upfront cost as you build up your pantry staples and spice drawer but after that, you will will just need to replenish low items and shop the produce aisle and dairy aisle for non-dairy milk or yogurt.
Shopping for Pantry Staples
While I generally shop at my local supermarket and find most of what I need there, I will occasionally visit the Whole Foods which is about 45 minutes away, in addition to purchasing items online. One of my favorite places to shop online is Thrive Market. It’s super easy to add items to my cart, shop sales and get free gifts often with my order. You can also sign up for autoship on frequently used items. Generally speaking, orders arrive a few days after purchase.
Why Purchase from Thrive Market?
There are a number of reasons I like Thrive Market, one being that for every membership purchased, they give one to a family in need to be able to purchase healthier food and personal care items at more affordable prices. You can find products from pantry staples to frozen items to wine to personal care. So far this year, my favorite items to purchase are almond butter and grains that are harder to find in my local supermarket like amaranth and kamut.
Thrive Market has their own brand of almond butter which is currently $7.99/jar and when you order 4 or more, you get 5% in cashback that you can apply to a future order. Other things I enjoy purchasing are grains like amaranth and sorghum– things I usually can’t find close to home or at a more affordable price!
If you are interested in trying out Thrive Market for yourself, you can sign and enjoy $40 off your first order!
