Your Independent Consultant


I'm no stranger to long-term food storage.  In fact, that's how I stumbled upon the THRIVE LIFE (it was Shelf Reliance at that time) website over 6 years ago.  I was in search of dehydrated potatoes that I had used up and couldn't find the original company I had placed the order with over a decade ago.

I loved the website.  I loved all the positive comments about the food .  My husband and I decided we had to check this out!  Once we tried the food, we found out that all food storage is not created equal!  In fact, THRIVE is in a category all by itself.  Delicious, nutritiuous food that happens to have a really long shelf life.  Vine ripened, no GMO food that you can have access to in a snap--for those little emergencies that don't feel so little when you're in them--like no time to cook, sick kiddo's, unexpected company.


This is great tasting, nutrient dense food packaged in double lined cans designed to keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out. The 25 year shelf life comes in handy too!

Home made Ranch Style Dip or Dressing

January 25, 2016

I was so pleased to discover recently,how easy it truly is to make your own dips and  dressing from scratch.

It's so convenient! And it fits right in with our desire to eliminate as many preservatives as we can from our diet.

The only thing that seemed like it migh be difficult, was access to fresh herbs in the middle of winter!  But then I remembered my Thrive LIfe Foods, and their amazing line of freeze dried herbs.  It's so nice to know I have herbs that I can rehydrate and use in place of fresh.  And they are already chopped for me! There is no way I would have had fresh Chives on hand this time of year.

Fresh Herbs in the winter--how cool is that?

I have uploaded my recipe to the Thrive Life Recipe site.

There are so many delicious recipes on our website--be sure to check them out!

But to make it simple, I'm going to post the recipe here as well.  It's super simple.  Enjoy! 


  •  4 tbsp. Mayonaise (I prefer Hellman's) 
  •  2 tbsp. Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt (You can substitute 2 T Thrive Sour Cream Powder, if necessary) 
  •  1 clv. Garlic, Raw, minced or pressed 
  •  1 tbsp. THRIVE Chives
  •  1 tbsp. THRIVE Parsley
  •  3/4 tsp. THRIVE Chef's Choice
  •  1/8 tsp. THRIVE Peppercorn
  •  1/2 tsp. Dried Dill Weed 
  •  1 pn. Cayenne 
  •  1 dash Sea Salt 
  •  1 1/2 tsp. THRIVE Instant Milk
  •  1/2 tsp. Lime Juice 
  •  2 tbsp. Water

Mix all together in a medium size bowl and blend to desired consistency.  Add more water for a thinner dressing.

It should stay fresh in the fridge for 3 or days.  Then you can just mix up more. 

I hope you enjoy the fresh taste of this dressing!
