With These Healthy, Yummy Options, Your Thrive Membership Pays for Itself

Thrive Market is on a mission to make grocery shopping more sustainable, more affordable, and arguably easier than ever before. The US-based membership-only shopping platform is pretty simple. First, you become a member, and after that, you have access to a wealth of groceries, many of which are vegan, organic, and non-GMO, and are cheaper than the versions you’ll find at most mainstream grocery stores.

And soon, Thrive Market will become even more accessible. Beginning February 26, the online retailer will accept SNAP EBT payments—officially becoming the first exclusively online grocer to accept SNAP. Customers will be able to pay for their groceries using EBT, and EBT cardholders looking to become new Thrive members will also be eligible for free membership. 

Intrigued? Here are some of the best vegan products (listed in no particular order) you’ll have access to if you choose to start shopping with Thrive. Plus, they’ll be delivered to your door via carbon-neutral shipping methods, too.

1 Daring Plant-Based Chicken Pieces

Daring’s plant-based chicken pieces are one of the most realistic vegan chicken products on the market. But that said, they’re made with only a handful of simple ingredients, including corn flour and soy protein. They’ll seamlessly blend into any dish you would usually make with chicken, like curries, pastas, and fajitas, for example.
