Pennywise Platter Thursday 9/9

It’s time to share your frugal and nourishing tips and recipes! Where do you shop for quality food at a lower price? What recipe saves a penny? How do you balance a budget with nourishing food? Share here.

Please read through the three simple rules for those participating. This helps keep the quality of our carnival. Please read them through before linking and thanks again for your continued participation.

1) No linking to giveaways or promotions for affiliates or sponsors. One thing that I’ve noticed increasingly on Pennywise Platter is that I am getting more and more promotional pieces for affiliates or sponsors and a lot of giveaways. I’ve decided to keep Pennywise less “commercial” and more in tune with the spirit of the carnival by not allowing these links anymore. There was nothing wrong with those of you who linked to them, I just think that it will protect the integrity of our carnival better without them. Plus, it makes our links valuable in the future as well. A link to a giveaway three months old isn’t going to be worth browsing in three months time, but a link to a recipe for a frugal soup would be. I will be deleting any giveaway links or promotional links.

2) Keep the ingredients “nourishing”, such as whole grains, meats, vegetables, legumes, unrefined salt and sugars, chicken, etc. I am not going to be an ingredient police every week, but if there is a link to a post that is obviously not filling any of the criteria for healthy (for example, a white flour, white sugar birthday cake), I will delete that link.However, feel free to post vegetarian, vegan, raw, low-carb, etc.

3) Link back to the carnival This is common carnival courtesy. And more then that, it helps build the community of the carnival as you are sending your readers to others participating. And please, as a blogger, check out other’s posts and leave a comment! I know that we would all love to hear from each other.

    Thanks for hosting Kimi!

    For Moms who cannot breastfeed or for those adopted little ones, here is a video how to for making safe, healthy formula at home for baby! Whatever you do, don’t buy commercial formulas as even the organic ones are packed in cans lined with the hormone disrupting chemical BPA!

      Mum’s who are adopting can also breastfeed! It is possible to lactate without pregnancy 🙂 Just wanted to put that out there for those who didn’t know it was even possible. Also there is a risk with homemade formula of contamination if the area is not completely sterile where it is prepared or if the person preparing the formula does not practice good hand hygiene.

    We are getting down to the nitty-gritty today, with how-to’s of making sprouted flour. It really is easy to do, and if you are thinking about buying sprouted flour, this will save you TONS of money. Also, it goes along with your research this week, Kimi =) I will be posting recipes of what to make with this flour soon, as well.

    I made some breakfast and savory waffles this week as part of my adoption post for Iris of The Daily Dietribe. Starting with Iris’ coconut waffle recipe, I made both a traditional waffle and a savory one. These are such a wonderful nourishing treat for breakfast (using brown rice flour, flax seed meal, coconut milk, etc.) or amazing as sandwich waffles when made with savory ingredients added, too (like tomato juice, mustard, etc).

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi!

    Hi Kimi! Thanks for hosting…a great round up as always!! What I love most about this event is that there’s a wide variety of participants so I always learn something.

    I’ve got oven braised greens – if you love greens as much as me you’ll definitely enjoy them once slow cooked in the oven.

    I’m canning like mad this week – and I don’t mind the heat for tomatoes, at least, because it releases the lycopene. I wouldn’t have enough fridge space for lacto-fermented salsa for the whole year, anyway, so at least this way I can get it mostly organic and definitely local! Did I mention delicious? My salsa-loving husband gave it an A+!

    Since it’s the end of peach season around here, I linked to a slightly older post of mine, about using peaches as medicine, in case people missed it. Because there are still a few weeks to catch them :).

    Thanks for hosting– this is such a wonderful carnival.

    My recipe is for a quick and easy skillet granola. Mine uses maple syrup, dates and walnuts because that is what I had in my pantry, but you can use the same technique to really mix it up and get a great variety of flavors. It takes less than 10 minutes to make so I don’t know that I’ll ever be buying granola again.

    Thanks for hosting such a great carnival.
