OVERVIEW

Here at The Ketone Society, food quality is extremely important to us! Eating real foods, free of additives, chemicals and fillers not only aids in weight loss, but also improves your overall health.  All of our members agree with this philosophy, but the biggest pushback that we get is the COST of eating healthy. Well, we have found a solution for you and are so excited to share!! Drum roll please.... The Ketone Society proudly introduces you to Thrive Market!!  

WHAT IS THRIVE MARKET

Thrive Market is an online store, offering whole foods at wholesale prices!  Since it is online, you can order from anywhere in America! This is a huge bonus, because some of our members live in towns without many healthy options in terms of grocery shopping. Thrive Market works as a membership model, so for less than $5 a month, you get access to thousands of wholesome non-perishable products at wholesale prices (think 25-50% off). With these savings, most people make up for the cost of the membership in just one or two orders!

We decided to put Thrive Market to the test and shopped for some of our "Keto Must Haves". Below is a list of these items. We compared the standard retail price at a grocery store to Thrive Market's prices. As you can see, the savings are significant!!

By shopping at Thrive Market, we saved over 30% off our grocery bill based on what we normally buy. Not to mention the convenience of getting everything delivered straight to our door, rather than having to scour grocery store aisles trying to find specific products, wait in line to checkout, and then schlep our groceries from the store to home. 

Right now, they only ship dry goods and packaged products, so our plan is to buy whatever we can through Thrive Market, and then do our shopping for fresh meats, seafood, poultry, eggs and veggies at our local farmer’s market

WARNING: Not every item they sell is keto friendly, so you still must use your judgement and read ingredient lists. Thrive Market also allows you to shop by value and they have a "Paleo" option. So you can start there and then weed out anything with too much sugar/carbs.  This is a great way to get pantry staples and find some fun new ingredients to use in your keto way of life!

BOTTOM LINE 

We are obsessed! Thrive Market is both convenient and cost-effective!  Yes there is a membership fee, but you will easily make this membership fee up in savings on items you buy during the year. Also, Thrive Market uses the fee to sponsor a free membership for a low-income family, teacher, veteran, or student. So your money is going to a good cause!!

Now the best news! Our friends @ Thrive Market are giving our members a 30 Day Free Trial & 15% off their first order! All you have to do is just click the button below to get started today!!
