If you're committed to healthy eating, Thrive Market is your one-stop-shop for all your meal prep, snacking and baking essentials. The online grocer boasts big savings on wholesome staples ranging from nuts to almond milk to wild seafood, in addition to offering their own in-house packaged items.

Yes, you need a membership to shop there. But you essentially make back the fee (which can be paid yearly or monthly) when you buy quality products at low prices, according to the brand. And if you want to try before committing, they offer a 30-day free trial that can be canceled at any time. (You can browse without a membership, too.)

Thrive Market is a good choice if you like the idea of buying from a source that vets the options to be healthy or good for the planet, especially if you don't have a health-food store within driving distance (or don't feel like dealing with the crowds and lines right now), notes nutrition expert Jessica Cording, RD, CDN.

Best of all? Unlike other huge online retailers like, say, Amazon (which does not own Thrive Market, FYI), the manageable selection has a curated feel. This makes it easier to find exactly what you're looking for quickly, without stressing over two items that appear nearly identical. Plus, you can rest assured knowing that what shows up on your doorstep matches the description you saw online.

While you can purchase recognizable brands from Thrive Market, we're especially big fans of their in-house line. "It offers a lot of healthy staples at affordable prices," Cording tells LIVESTRONG.com. Here are 25 Thrive Market foods you won't want to miss out on.
