"Meal in a Jar" Packs



I hope you will find this information helpful! 
I figured out how many #10 cans or Pantry Cans (PC) you would need of each item to make a “batch” of each recipe!

#10 Cans and Pantry Cans
A #10 can usually holds 11-11.5 cups of product. A Pantry Can (PC) usually holds 3.5 cups of product. Thrive packages their products according the weight, not volume, so it can be a little tricky to have this be exact. When you see FD in front of a product name, it means Freeze Dried. 

Batch
I tried to figure a “batch” so you would use up the #10 can of meat. Most of the other products get used up too, but you will have some items left over. So a batch worked out to be 11 quart jars or 15 quart jars, depending on the recipe.

How to Order
You can go to MY THRIVE FAVORITES to place an order online. (Once there, click SHOP, then MAIN WEBSITE, and then you can put the item name you are looking for in the search bar, or look through the different categories.) 

Free and Half Off Food
If you are wanting to place a large order, or you want to gather a group order, I can set you up as a “catalog party” and you will receive Host Benefits from those orders. You will earn 10% of the order in free product, plus some half off product. Here is the chart that shows how much you get half off.  Just send me an email, and I will do that for you.

Smaller and Larger Jars
Some people will not need 10-12 cups of soup that a quart jar makes. You can half the recipe and put it in a pint jar (that holds 2 cups), or you can double the recipe and put in half gallon jars. It’s easy to customize these!

UPDATE February 1st: Thrive's price list changed today, so the prices listed below will be close but not 100% accurate. And it will also be different if some of these items are currently on sale!

  2. PC means Pantry Can, and that is roughly about the size of a quart. FD means Freeze Dried. :)
