Pennywise Platter Thursday

pennywiseplatter

It’s time again!

What do you have to share that’s both nourishing and frugal? On a tight budget but want to eat nourishing food? How do you make it work?

Share your recipes and tips! Last week, we had some wonderful contributions. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check it out.

I’ve decided to keep the same format as last week, with everyone giving their contribution in the comment section. Format it like the following.

Kimi @ The Nourishing Gourmet Raw Berry Freezer Jam (http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/2009/07/raw-berry-freezer-jam-honey-sweetened.html) I’m sharing a recipe for a jam recipe that not only is frugal but allows you to make freezer jam that is raw and sugar free!

I love being able to have a short description of everyone’s post.

Also, make sure to have a link in your post to this post.

For non-bloggers, please feel free to share your recipes and tips in the comment section. I would love to hear from you and will make mention of your comments in this post.

I will start updating first thing tomorrow with your contributions and am looking forward to hearing from you!

Invitation to Bean and Veggie Meal Plan Analysis
Since beans are such a frugal, nutritious, filling and flexible food option, I’m offering to analyze meal plans to help find places to include them more often in meals you already make. Get adaptable ideas to help you pump up your family’s nutrition without making big changes or spending big bucks.

Nurturing Wisdom@Nurturing Wisdom Cheddar Jalapeno Eggs is an inexpensive dish that’s high in protein and full of omega 3’s from the range-free eggs and raw grass-fed cheese. It is a frugal breakfast, lunch, dinner, or nutritious snack.

Diane @ TheWHOLEGangThis week I made a Duck Burger with a Simple Asian Slaw that is gluten free and dairy free.This can make 3 good sized burgers or 4 on the smaller size but completely respectable. You really don’t use a lot of the ingredients and for me I purchased the duck on sale and it’s been waiting in my freezer to come out and play. You can also make these the size of a quarter and serve them for appetizers. They are very tasty. Enjoy!

Shannon @ Nourishing Days We celebrated a local/real food anniversary this week that was also frugal.

Amanda @ Rebuild from Depression Energy-boosting and frugal!
I have two recipes based on a food that is inexpensive and high in mood-boosting vitamins, minerals, and Omega 3s.

Local Nourishment -I blog about my experiences changing over from buying already processed organic foods to real food ingredients and processing them at home for a fraction of the cost.

Cara @ Health Home & Happiness We’re gardening even while we we live in an apartment to be able to have organic fresh tomatoes this year.

Shelia shares in the comment section shares a recipe for curried beans!

Christine @ becomingp31 Homemade Yogurt and GranolaMaking your own yogurt and granola is very frugal and nourishing. It is an easy breakfast for the whole family that is good for hot summer days, packs a super healthy punch, and pleases even the most fussy eaters.

Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINSCorn Tortillas with Rice, Beans, Beef, and Cheese ~ a frugal, easy meal, using leftovers and ready-to-make tortilla dough! In this post, I also shared a few things that helped me roll the tricky tortillas out. :)

MilehimamaI blogged my menu and added notes of how I make cooking with real food more convenient.
I also wrote about Salad Bar nights.

Millie@ Thinking Outloud -Food for a Road Trip.

Show Me the Whey, part 2


In an earlier post, I took at look a using yoghurt as a source of liquid whey, which in turn can be used to make all sorts of great stuff like lacto-fermented ketchup or raisin chutney. I also touched on some of the ways to use the solids that are left after the whey is removed.

In Show Me The Whey part 2, I take a closer look at some of the ways to use those solids, including a fresh cream cheese replacement and the traditional Middle-eastern labneh and oil-preserved, spice-coated dried labneh balls, all of which may be made for a very frugal $5.

I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!

    No blog, sorry but here’s a lovely lunch dish or supper side that is really economical.
    I got it at a Weight Watchers meeting . . . ;p

    Curried Beans (*note- I use canned beans but you can easily cook yours from dried the day before!)

    2 tsp oil of your choice (olive, coconut)
    1 c chopped onion
    1 tbsp minced ginger
    1 1/2 tsp curry powder
    1 c diced tomatoes
    1 can black beans, rinsed
    1 can chick peas, rinsed
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/3 c chopped parsley
    1 tbsp lemon juice

    Saute onion and ginger until tender. Add curry powder and stir for one minute. Add tomatoes. Cook, stirring slightly, until thickened and add rinsed beans. Heat through, add salt, parsley and lemon juice. Serve warm over rice.
