Yeah, I'm gonna pitch this . . . because I think it is critical right now and having researched and tried a number of different products I'm sold on Thrive Life food for food storage. As I wrote a few weeks ago, regardless (but not indifferent to) the many obvious signs, threats and developing global/regional crises, I believe I got the "get prepared" internal prompting I've been keeping my eyes out for.
And it was strong--still is. In the same way I knew we were going the full-on socialist/communist route in government and started predicting/warning about that . . . at a time when the common opinion was that "communism is dead" . . . and hardly anyone was pointing to hard left-wing political ideology and governance as being any kind of threat to our system (late 80s-early 90s) NOW I recognize an inevitable collapse of the economy as being imminent.
While I totally believe and trust in God's providence and know that all such preparations may come to naught for many, I doubt they will for everyone. Life goes on (until the end of course) even during wartimes, "natural disasters", tyranny and martial law. People are endlessly creative and inventive and the drive to survive is always finding a way. Also, I believe it is irresponsible and unChristian to deliberately not take some precautions and make preparations as able, expecting others to carry you. If you can't do anything, that's one thing, but most everyone can do SOME thing . . . and there is also the part to play in being able to help others--at the very least, one's own household and extending out from there.
Thrive Life food was started not too far from where I live and I happen to know some of the people involved with its genesis and the care they've taken to procure the finest, healthiest, best tasting foodstuffs. All their fruits are GMO free. Same with all there vegetables. Grains as well--GMO free-except for rice, which they are working toward also getting non-GMO. Their meats are no GMO.
There is no MSG in any of their items, which is fantastic for me as I nearly die anytime I accidentally get a big dose of MSG--can't tolerate it at all! It's poison as far as I'm concerned.
Another thing that has impressed me having tasted many of their fruits and vegetables . . . is that they are picked ripe, which maintains the great flavor and nutrients. I, along with about everyone I know, can barely stand to eat fruits and vegetables anymore got from the typical grocery store. I love tomatoes especially and the store-bought ones are terrible. Same with bananas, apples, pears etc. Because the big-Farma growers pick everything green (along with being GMO and pesticided to death). But Thrive's fruits and vegetables are flash freezed in their naturally ripened state, which retains 99% of the nutrients, color, taste and texture! Truly, they taste awesome, even eaten straight out of the can before reconstituting. My wife and I recently made a mix of their corn, peas, broccoli, celery . . . added a touch of seasoning, mixed together and came up with a snack mix of crunchy, healthy, tasty tidbits . . . which reminds me of a version of the Biblical "pulse" superfood that Daniel mentions and which I've had before years ago and loved. (see Daniel 1:11-13)
Their products last 5-25 years and they've developed also a fantastic shelving system (they use to be known as "Shelf Reliance") which makes it easy to organize and use the food so that you don't end up wasting or misplacing any. I love their yogurt bites, the corn . . . the beef is excellent . . . the various cheeses . . . and as my wife and I are big chili fans I must say their Thrive Express Hearty Chili with Beans . . . we agree is the best chili we've had! It's fantastic. So are their soups and sauces. Well, so far we've been blown away how good all of the items we've tried are. . . .
Honestly, I am feel strongly impressed that we are in for seriously rough times, especially as it relates to getting and maintaining clean, healthy, decent food considering the political, spiritual, economical and "natural" upheavals we are little doubt just getting into in earnest. . . .
While the chain grocers' food continues to deteriorate in quality and taste and unhealthiness . . . I see the Thrive food as a virtually organic, convenient (shipped to your door) replacement. If possible, I'd recommend getting an initial batch of essentials, then setting up what they call a "Q" whereby you can regularly get as little as 50$ worth per month or more ongoing to begin building up a store as well as replacing your usual store-bought garbage (heh, is that too strong? lol). No, but really, much of what the store's are selling now besides the legitimately organic . . . I say can barely really be considered "food".
Even knowing for quite a while . . . where things are going . . . I've not felt until recently so strongly that it is indeed wise--critical--to get prepared as able. It all still seems remote--there is a powerful "normalcy bias" going on . . . and many are flat out in a trance and don't realize the dire situation . . . but it is going to get real and get real fast once it collapses . . . and you'll be kicking yourself for not heading the warnings . . . even to be prepared for relatively minor disruptions to the food supply that will eventuate from growing "natural" disasters and likely terroristic "events".
Sincerely, I'm convinced we are at last on the precipice of the terrible things many of us have been seeing coming for a while. Myself, I'm feeling a powerful impetus to get ready as able to weather the storms, God willing. . . .
There is a link on the side of my blog here . . . to get to my Thrive Life page where you can check it out if interested. An email will show up there if you have any questions--I'm still learning the ropes but can get answers asap if I don't know them right off the top of my head. I think this food storage is the best out there . . . for quality, taste, nutrition, convenience. . . . And I think it's definitely time to start get serious about preparations, as able. . . .
God bless ya:)
