Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/6/11

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Nourishing Resolutions Carnival! It was a lot of fun to see everyone’s thoughts. I also thought I would mentioned my post, 4 ways to Consume Raw Garlic. It’s a frugal way to boost the immune system. Make sure you read through the comments too! A lot of great suggestions.

Now, 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.

    Sigh, deep into winter, aren’t we? Sweater weather. Time to snuggle under blankets. But there are lovely, nourishing ways to fight the chill. Look first to traditional winter herbs, infuse them in chicken bone broth, and combine with creamy coconut milk to make a warming treat.

    I have some apples left in storage so I thought I’d post this simple recipe that I’ll bake to use up what’s left over the next few weeks. It’s a fall favorite but welcome any time.

    This week I am sharing a recipe for Quinoa salad with walnuts and avocado dressing. I like to make a batch of it on the weekend so I can grab some for a quick lunch when I am busy.

    Beef Jerky is really expensive in the store and you do not know what kind of meat they are making the jerky with. I came up with this recipe this week and it is a little cheaper than store bought and I know what kind of meat my jerky is made with. REAL delicious and easy!!!! ENJOY!
