Pennywise Platter Thursday 2/10

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.

    Today I post our yeast-free pizza recipe. I added some fun variation ideas at the end as well, such as adding herbs for zest, and doing pizza pockets as well!

    Hope you all enjoy…

    I source organic kombucha mothers from friends or eBay and brew my own kombucha instead of buying bottled stuff. Not only is it DIRT CHEAP, but it’s unpasteurized so none of the good stuff is killed. I can flavour it any way I want, so I have ultimate quality and taste control. Being frugal in this way is about so much more than simply saving moolah, it’s a way to ensure you know what you’re putting in your body (like growing your own vegetable garden). I also make my own sprouts and am attempting to make my own yogurt too! I have quite the little food factory going on in my kitchen and have info about it on my blog.

    Today I’ve linked Bean Salad with Dijon Dressing which can be made with garbanzos or cannelini beans — or any white bean you like. It’s simple and nutritious as is, or you can serve it over lettuce if you like. Either way, it’s good to “store up” something healthy eating before the Valentine goodies overtake us 😉

    I have shared a recipe for whole wheat pizza dough, and some ideas for how to creatively use it in the kitchen. What do you do with extra pizza dough?

    I love this series! This is always so much fun and I learn something new every week. Thanks for hosting!

    In my own kitchen this week I am talking about making refried beans, in yumbo lard, from dry beans. I could eat them by themselves, and sometimes do. If anyone here has ever wanted to make better ones after opening an icky can or eating sub-par beans in a restaurant, check it out. Bye!

    This week I’m sharing a refreshing and delicious frozen yogurt recipe with 3 ingredients. I also included a list of ingredients from popular supermarket and frozen yogurt shop brands to show what’s really in these so called “healthy” treats.
