Teach Your Children To Cook with Thrive

My grandson (8) and I decided to make chicken fajitas for the family for dinner. This recipe is from the New Thrive life Southwestern Chicken Pack.


This was so easy. The hardest part was mincing the garlic. I had him measure everything out into a bowl. Then he poured contents of the bowl into frying pan. Then sauteed and cooked it.
He told me it looked good and couldn’t wait to eat it!
Plus, he loved eating the chicken right out of the can before we started cooking and I didn’t have to worry about slicing the chicken!

 

When finished he gave his meal a thumbs up. All 4 of us each had one, then we even had seconds. It made 8 fajitas! And they were delicious!   

2017 Preparedness: Food!

Next up for being prepared is food. Now I know you’re thinking, “I really can’t afford to do that.” But hear me out before you decide you can’t do it!

Let’s say your food budget for the month is $600. I know some of you are thinking yours is way more or that is too high. But for this example let’s just use $600 a month. Did you know that the average American family wastes an average of 25% of their grocery bill on food that they have to throw away because it goes bad before they can use it? That means in this example, you waste about $150 a month. WOW!

Let’s say you reallocated a little more than 25% of your grocery money to being more prepared. This doesn’t mean that you will not be using this money for groceries and only for food storage. In fact, it will be used for both.

Hear me out before you click off.

Let’s say you reallocate $200 and you start with buying only those foods that you end up throwing away. Like onions, celery, mushrooms, tomatoes, carrots, maybe some hamburger and sausage etc.

Signing up on the Q from Thrive Life will help you start to save every single month and the groceries are delivered to your door!

For $200 with Thrive you could buy:

  • 2 #10 cans of Onions (23 cups of onions)
  • 1 pantry can of green onions (3.5 cups of green onions)
  • 1 #10 can of tomatoes (9 cups of tomatoes)
  • 1 #10 can of celery (9 cups of celery)
  • 1 #10 can of Carrots (11 cups of carrots)
  • 1 #10 can of sausage (11.5 cups of sausage)
  • 1 pantry can of Broccoli to try it out (3 cups of broccoli)

You will be surprised that through the month how much of these items you will still have left over and not spoiled!

Okay, great but how does this help me be prepared if I need these items now?

Easy, you got 2 cans of onions, right? Well, put one can aside for storage. Then your next month either buy the same items or switch out some other items to purchase.

Believe me, before long you will have accumulated several cans of food both in your kitchen area that you will continue to use and in your food storage.

Remember, ‘Store what you eat, then eat what you store.’

All of our foods at Thrive Life can be used in your favorite recipes or you can snack on the straight from the can. If your favorite recipes take an hour to cook, with Thrive Life it will be cut down to 20 to 30 min. More time for you and your family!
