What is Thrive Market?
ThriveMarket.com has been an incredible resource since the 131 Method’s inception. A trusted way to get the healthiest ingredients shipped, while saving money, made this way of shopping a no-brainer for the 131 Method kitchen. Since Thrive Market burst onto the scene in 2014, they’ve stayed steadfast in their values: bringing healthy, clean and organic food/groceries to people at a discount (all while giving back, too). Unlike shopping at small boutique stores, or mega health food chains where the catchphrase “whole paycheck” is ubiquitous, Thrive keeps prices lower. Like, legit lower; anywhere from 10-50% off. You pay a $60 yearly membership fee, similar to how Costco works, but if you use it even a few times, it pays for itself. And if you shop like us (a couple times per month), you’ll save hundreds and hundreds per year. Thrive Market keeps a tally of your savings, so you can really see in black and white what you’re saving. We’ve price shopped, and oftentimes not even Amazon can compare. Plus, with the products curated with wellness in mind, you can feel good about everything in their store. You do a lot less scrolling through junk, because there is NO JUNK!
Free Shipping & Free Stuff!
Shipping is free when you spend over $75 and everything comes packaged and wrapped safely and beautifully. They even throw in cold packs for things like Lily’s sugar-free chocolate when the weather is hot. With every order you get to choose a free sample or gift (fun!) and they do some pretty incredible giveaways too. For example, if you’re a member, you’ll get an email and an alert on your phone when they’ve got a free gift (in addition to your selected free sample). Sometimes it’s a CBD oil worth $40, or a cookbook, or keto-friendly pasta sauces worth $15 or more! If you don’t care for the deal of the day, scope out some of their revolving deals.
Ease of Use
Here’s what we love the most: the ease of the shopping experience. Not only do they have “Diet & Lifestyle” filters, like Paleo, Keto, Low FODMAP and Vegan, but Thrive partnered with the 131 Method to bring you hand-picked items for each phase of the program. That’s right! You can shop for Ignite-only items while in your first phase. Move on over to the Nourish list when you’ve hit phase two. And shop for Renew-specific items while you diet phase through Carb Charge, Lean Green and Fat Burning. The chefs and dietitians of the 131 Method chose all of the products they use, love and trust, making it SO easy for you to succeed!

Once you create a username and password, you’ll be prompted to fill out your personal information for shipping and billing, along with a credit card so that your membership can officially activate at a cost of $60 once your trial is up. If you wish to cancel before the 3-months, set an alert on your phone ahead of time to remind yourself. (But we are pretty sure you’re going to love the products, quality and convenience!).
Navigating is Easy
From there, start shopping. Don’t forget to redeem the free gift they might be offering and to select your free samples too. They have little offerings of makeup, protein powder, drink elixirs and more!
As you shop, heart the items you know you’ll want to buy again. These become your favorites and make shopping in the future super fast and easy (you can even set up an auto-ship too). The app is convenient and simple to navigate. They keep track of your “recently reviewed” items and also offer “recommended for you” picks based on other things you like. We’ve actually gotten hooked on quite a few things thanks to their smart suggestions (hellooooo dark chocolate sprinkled with coconut).
Scroll a little further and you’ll find a “what’s trending” section, as well as a “what’s new” section so that you can shop the latest and greatest items.
- Every product has one or more images that you can enlarge and swipe through
- The “details’ tab lets you read all about the item
- The “reviews” tab is where other members rate and discuss the products
- The “nutrition” tab zeroes in on macros and ingredients
- The “related” tab helps you quickly find that item’s other flavors, or other similar brands

Getting the Goods No Matter Where you Live
One last thing…if you’ve seen a recipe or two with an item your small town or grocery store doesn’t have, Thrive Market will most certainly have it. And, they’ll have it for a really good price. They’re not here to take your hard earned money with outrageous markups. Their goal is access to healthy and affordable food for all.
