Plenty of Thrive Life foods start with C: Carrots, chicken, cauliflower, celery… I settled on carrots because carrots have a very particular place in my personal repertoire. I love them, but I kinda hate to eat them.
They’re a pain to prepare. I have to scrub them, then peel them, then slice them, then cook them. This results in dripped water (some of it dirty), a Dirty peeler and knife, a dirty cutting board, a dirty pan (that’s now hot and can’t be washed ’til later). And then I have to clean all this stuff up.
None of this sounds like it should be a big deal until you consider that I’m usually cooking for only myself (because of special dietary needs the rest of the family doesn’t have), so I’m going to all this trouble for one person. And carrots only have like 25 calories each, so I feel like I probably burn more calories preparing the carrots than I gain by actually eating the carrots. (I know, for some people that’s a plus. For me, this is a bad thing because I need calories and struggle to get enough.)
But none of that is an issue with Thrive Life carrots.
They don’t have to be scrubbed. They don’t have to be peeled. They don’t have to be sliced. They don’t even have to be cooked, although they do need to be reconstituted (and I often saute mine with something else, anyway). Better yet, since they don’t have to be washed or peeled or sliced, they don’t demand the washing of a cutting board, peeler, knife, or counter!
So now I can enjoy my carrots even on a day when I don’t have the energy to prepare my carrots from scratch.
(If you’re not like me, and don’t need to prepare “carrots for one,” these are also a really good addition to things to add some color and varied nutrition: soups & stews, casseroles, other veggies, etc.)
