Thrive Market, an awesome online membership site for healthy, organic food and natural products, frequently offers FREE gifts with a minimum purchase.
You know how I said I was on a mission to cook and bake more with coconut oil? If you’re with me on that one, listen up for a really great deal!
I may receive commissions from purchases made through links in this article. Full Disclosure
Thrive Market frequently offers a FREE full-sized jar of Nutiva organic, fair-trade virgin coconut oil (or other healthy, organic products) to new members! Plus you’ll get up to a 20% shoppint credit on your first order over $49 (see below for why I love my Thrive Market membership!).
What’s so great about coconut oil?
Coconuts are nutrient powerhouses, loaded with iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium, as well as antioxidants, which inhibit harmful free radicals in our bodies. Consumption of coconut has been linked to prevention of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease, as well as increased metabolism, better bone strength and a boosted immune system.
Coconut oil is a saturated fat that is mostly made of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are fats that the body can burn off quickly, making them a healthier option than other saturated fats, such as butter. Nutiva coconut oil is certified USDA organic, non-GMO, fair trade, cold-pressed and completely unrefined. All that, plus it’s delicious!
Here are some ways to use coconut oil in cooking:
- In a stir fry or sauté on medium heat (especially good with curries)
- For delicious roasted vegetables
- As butter or oil substitute in baking
- Mixed with chocolate for a naturally sweet treat
- In bulletproof coffee instead of butter (curious to try this!)
- Spread on toast
The beauty of a Thrive Market membership
At Thrive Market you’ll find your favorite products for healthy living at 25 – 50% off retail (basically, wholesale pricing). It’s is like a Costco for natural products, except you order in the comfort of your home instead of wandering around a massive, dreary warehouse. An annual membership fee is required but it’s easy to earn it back with just a couple of orders.
I’ve been a Thrive Market member for many years and I’ve found plenty to stock up on. Some of my favorite brands include Udis, Seventh Generation, Woodstock, Amy’s, Late July, Justin’s, If You Care, Spectrum Naturals and Eden Organics. Plus I just realized they carry Acure – one of my favorite natural beauty brands!
