So why should you care about Simple Plate™ and Thrive Life?

If you are in need of ways to create quick and healthy meals and need to stay away from fast and fried foods, and haven’t given Thrive a try, I suggest you do so as soon as possible. These are easy to prepare if you just follow the instructions.  Children can prepare these meals. No danger of the kids cutting themselves with knives while trying to cut and dice veggies, etc.

You may feel these seem pricey but consider the laboring you don’t have to do and the fact that there is no waste and they are much healthier than the fasst food you might replace them with!  Plus these have a long shelf life due to the freeze drying and so they won’t go bad in a week or two if you don’t get around to preparing a meal with them..
