It’s time for another #CHEAPCLEANEATS! I am on a roll! You said you love the cooking vids so I am doing my best to do even more 🙂 Also guys, you will notice in the video that I have a new kitchen. YAY!! Click play if you wanna see the space and also some REALLY CUTE, fun, and healthy breakfast recipes!
Woohoo – we have more room to dance!! And also cook of course. Haha.
Most of the ingredients I got from THRIVE Market, which is basically like Costco and Whole Foods combined. I saved like 25-50% on my food! That’s amazing because normally brands like Justin’s Peanut Butter and Bob’s Red Mill can get costly.
So how does it work? You pay a yearly membership to shop their food ($59.95/year) for nearly wholesale prices. PLUS they ship super fast. I got SO EXCITED about the whole concept of making healthy ingredients accessible and affordable for everyone that I asked THRIVE to give one of you guys a $1000 shopping spree to go NUTS on their site! They were ecstatic about you guys and your passion for healthy living…so they were like YESSSSS!
To enter the contest, just click here and sign up with your email for a free 1 month membership to try their store. That’s it – that’s your entry. I will announce a random winner on Sept 17. The contest is US only.
YAY! Alrighty, here are the recipes featured in the video:
