I hate this scam.

Did you know a lot of olive oil in stores is fake? Many brands have been tested and found to be diluted with soybean oil and other cheap GMO oils. Some companies even flavor it and dye it green to make it look and smell like real olive oil. So gross. 
It's astonishing that companies are getting away with this, but since no one is holding their feet to the fire, they can continue to pass off heavily processed and unhealthy ingredients as olive oil. 
Real olive oil tastes AMAZING - it is rich and vibrant, and so HEALTHY for you. I use it almost every day to whisk up salad dressing, so it's a regular part of my diet. 
It can be hard to find good organic olive oil in stores - especially since you can't trust the labels to tell you whether it is adulterated. So, unless you know the source, there's a good chance that it is fake - and that's not a chance I'm willing to take.
Also - olive oil can be VERY pricey, so choosing the wrong one can be a very expensive mistake! 
I recently had the chance to try Thrive Market's Extra Virgin Olive Oil and really like it! They've gone to great lengths to find an authentic source for their olive oil, so they know EXACTLY where it comes from. They get it directly from a 3rd generation family farm on the island of Crete in Greece - where it's grown, harvested, and cold pressed on site. Thrive has gone to the farms and processing facilities to inspect firsthand to ensure their olive oil is legit.
Not only is this olive oil authentic, but it's delicious - made exclusively from organic Koroneiki olives and no other ingredients! It's only available through Thrive Market. 
Since Thrive Market is a partner of Food Babe, they are offering a very special deal to the Food Babe Army, so that you can try their olive oil for yourself.
Thrive Market is an online grocery store stocked up with non-GMO and organic groceries at drastically reduced prices (up to 25-50% off). Now you can buy organic products that may not be available in your local stores, and at a discount! They carry many of the brands that I love, support, and recommend in my investigations. 
When you claim your bottle of Thrive Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil, you'll start a free 30-day trial membership - which you can cancel at any time. If you decide to keep your Thrive Market membership after the 30 days, the fee is just $59.95 per year (which works out to about $5 a month). I think you will find that this fee pays for itself many times over, since their prices are so good! I personally order something from Thrive Market almost every month.
If you are already a member of Thrive Market, you can get a free bottle too! They will send you a bottle along with your purchase of $35 or more - while supplies last!
Just follow this link to log-in to your Thrive Market account. 
Thrive Market has really become a lifesaver for me. I hope it helps you buy all of the organic goodies that you need to stock up your kitchen with the healthiest foods at a reasonable price!
