Survivin’ and Thrivin’

Guess who’s the new Health and Wellness Editor at Thrive Market? It’s your girl (me)!

I want to share with you my sustainable seafood cheat sheet that I created for Thrive. But first…

In case you didn’t know, Thrive Market is the coolest thing ever. If you’ve ever wanted to shop at Whole Foods for healthy or sustainable living products, but can’t justify the extra cost, you can get a lot of those same products at wholesale prices from Thrive. All you need is a membership, which costs $59.95 a year (about $5 per month). Same price as a Costco membership. You can try a free trial first.

What’s even cooler, though—for every membership purchased, one is donated to a low-income family. The mission is to make healthy living accessible to the masses. You know how it is—healthy living can seem so unattainable, bourgeois, even. It’s tough enough for middle class professional people, let alone people living in underserved areas. Low-income families and individuals end up feeling relegated to the options available at fast food restaurants and mass groceries that aren’t very transparent about their sources.

Anyway, excuse the plug but I was genuinely stoked when I learned about it. I knew that I HAD to work for them, and I did not rest until that happened.

So my role at Thrive Market is to create stories for their online magazine, Thrive Notebook, that will inform and educate readers about healthy living. If you ever find yourself at a loss over the hows and whys of veganism, or what the heck maca is, or how factory farming affects you, these are all things we will investigate and report back to you on, and we’ll make it as fun and digestible as possible.

Naturally, there will be some crossover between the values of Thrive Market and my own that I represent here on Everything is Nature. As promised in an earlier post, I want to help demystify sustainable seafood for you guys. So again, check out my sustainable seafood cheat sheet, which will give you a few key fishes to memorize as sustainable, and a few to remember to avoid, without having to rely on Seafood Watch on the fly.

Thrive on 😉
