WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW BEFORE FILLING YOUR DELIVERY CART THIS MONTH
August might seem like a strange month to stock up on food storage, but I actually think it’s a great time to add some well loved foods to your stash. Then you’ll have something to grab for a quick meal or snack during those weeks where life is a bit more than you want it to be.

This is such an amazing sweet snack and perfect for your 72-hour kits (in the pantry can size, of course). Seriously, SO good.
I love this pineapple so much that it made the cut for my top 12 items I keep in my food storage.
If you love strawberries, you’ll love these!
They are bursting with flavor…a fan favorite, for sure!
These are also a great thing to purchase in a pantry can size to throw in a 72-hour kit for a snack. You can’t beat not having to rotate a snack food for 25 years that your kids will happily gobble up!
These are fine. Nothing to write home about – they’re green beans. I will say that the stringy little side seam that is on green beans feels a little amplified in these sometimes, but it just depends. Not my absolute favorite, but I definitely have some in our storage!
Honestly, these aren’t my favorite. There. I said it. They kind of taste like cardboard.
Pepper Jack Cheese
YES. Yes to all the cheese.
Can you imagine life without cheese?
Especially life where you are already limited on certain foods, so you’re having to improvise a little (or a lot)?
Cheese just makes everything go down a little bit easier, amiright?
This is one of my favorite meats from Thrive Life! It is DELICIOUS!
I don’t cook much with sausage, but when I do, I have no hesitation using this.
Just like ground beef, I recommend browning the sausage crumbles before adding them to a meal.
Instant White Rice
Cooks up just like any other instant rice and tastes great! I don’t know about your family, but we go through A LOT of rice – I would hate to be without such a popular staple.
However, I apply the same logic to rice as I do to the refried beans and black beans. Rice has a really decent shelf life, just in the packaging it comes in from the store. Minute Rice in a box is a heck of a lot cheaper than this Thrive Instant White Rice. So…I store Minute Rice in a box, and I rotate through it as I use it.
Having said that, this rice is super delicious and super fast to cook!
