What Do You Do With Tomato Powder?

Welcome to installment three of "What the Heck Wednesday." Today we're going to take a look at Thrive Tomato Powder.

I have to say - this is hands down one of my all time favorite products. It is super versatile, very nutritious, and easy to use. The first thing you will notice when you open your can of Tomato Powder is its beautiful, deep red color and delicious smell. Just in case you've missed the health report, tomatoes are some of the most nutritionally beneficial foods you can eat. They are absolutely packed with vitamins and minerals in concentrations not available from other sources. A diet rich in tomatoes, particularly cooked tomatoes, has been shown to reduce high blood pressure and cancer risk, improve vision, clear acne prone skin, and improve your immune system. Plus they taste great!

Thrive Tomato Powder is meant to replace a variety of tomato products: diced tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, pasta sauce, tomato soup and pizza sauce. You can use it to make the sauce for your favorite lasagna, give your taco meat a boost, thicken up your favorite chili recipe and make your minestrone soup unforgettable.

Each #10 can hold the equivalent of just over 110 (yes, one hundred and ten) cups of tomato sauce. That's about 63 15oz cans. How much space would 63 large cans of tomato sauce take up in your pantry? A #10 can costs $31, which coverts to about $0.50 per large can of tomato sauce. I don't know about you, but I usually pay $0.65 per can for the generic tomato sauce at our local grocery store, double that if I want the quality stuff. In addition to space and money savings, Tomato Powder reduces waste - both in packaging and food thrown in the trash. I frequently cook dishes that only need one or two tablespoons of tomato paste, and that often means that the rest of the can ends up in the garbage can. With Thrive Tomato Powder, I measure out just what I need and know that the rest of my opened container will last for a whole year on my pantry shelf.

So the next time you are adding stuff to your Q shipment, or placing a hostess benefit order to get your free food, add a #10 of Tomato Powder. I'm sure you'll be as happy with it as I am! Oh wait, you don't get free food from Thrive? Contact me and I'll get you hooked up!


  1. I used the tomato powder for the first time today and all I can say, I love it!!!

    I made lasagne and instead of using three different cans of tomato products (diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and tomato paste) I just used the powder. It was fast and convenient, and made me really feel good about the fact that I didnt had to throw three empty cans in my trashcan just for one meal.
    Topping this experience off, I could not taste a difference, the lasagne had the fresh-tomato taste like usual.

    Now, excuse me, I gotta get another piece of lasagne. Thanks Lindsey for making me order it ;)
