Pennywise Platter Thursdays 4/7

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.

    Hi Kimi,
    I shared my grain-free matzoh and my Fat Connection Part II. I hope you like them. I really enjoyed your post about Weston Price!

    I always read the pennywise platter posts with glee, but this is the first time I’ve shared. I’ve given you my “not egg and bacon pie”, a healthier vegetarian twist on my grandmothers favourite recipe.

    I always read the pennywise platter posts with glee, but this is the first time I’ve shared. In fact, I enjoyed sharing so much I posted the same recipe twice! Sorry, please just delete one of them.

    This is the recipe to my daughter’s granola. She uses organic honey and coconut oil. I eat it every morning with kefir and blueberries! Yum! Hope you enjoy!

    Today I’m sharing a modified recipe for blueberry cream cheese muffins made with whole wheat flour, buttermilk, and butter (to replace the canola oil in the original recipe — ew!). These have a bit of cream cheese in the middle which my husband and kids loved. Thanks for hosting! ~Lisa

    Hi Kimi! Finally settling back in after going crazy doing the college search thing! My daughter selected her school and we are all so happy it is only an hour and a half away! Linking up some awesome pork carnitas that are great with pastured pork shoulder. Also if anyone cooked a recipe out of a cookbook, please remember that my tackling bittman and his buddies recipe blog hop now accepts all cooks and is open all month so stop by and link up! All the best, Alex

    Hey everyone!

    I added a post on pancakes! A favorite childhood memory of mine, being grain-free I had to come up with some alternatives! The post is a review of a few different recipes I’ve tried and really like.

    Enjoy 🙂

    I shared a raw apple pie recipe. It is only sweetened with apples and dates. It is awesome, if I do say so myself!

    I am excited to look at the asparagus recipe. I have never been able to make those right!

    Chocolate coated bananas, they are dairy,suagr,gluten free and are so easy to make and are devine to eat , and a really healthy treat . but be warned they are very hard to resist at only one, or maybe two or maybe three, make them and you’ll know what I mean . a great healthy treat for all. could also be great for a teething baby just had that thought.
    We are in autunm here in Australia , but I know you guys in the U.S are in spring so with the warmer weather they would be great . to be honest I would eat them any time of the year. but bananas are expensive here right now because of all the cyclones and are over $12 a kilo. so I won’t be making any for a while.
    Cheers from Down under 🙂
    Cheers 🙂

    I wanted to do a cost comparison for almond milk, whether it was cheaper to buy it or make my own. It was quite the process!

    Thank you so much for hosting this. I have loved checking out all the links and finding new blogs. 🙂

      I see my contribution not only posted twice, but the first only has my name and needs to be deleted. Very sorry. Can someone help? The second entry (greens) can stay.

      Thanks in advance.

    Late to the game….oops! I just shared my post on “The Plight of a Food Blogger & CLEAN Eating.” Hoping to hear from other food bloggers & how they deal with trying to eat clean amongst all the temptations that come our way via online media. Hope you’ll stop by and share your views. 🙂

    My newest favourite recipe: thigh cutlets (super juice) baked in cherry tomatoes and herbs. It’s bursting with flavour and great comfort food.
