Pennywise Platter Thursday 7/7

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.

    Hello! I’ve got a strong love for tea, but am starting to question my use of a beverage that is imported from the other side of the world. Over the summer, I’ve experimented with several herbs picked in my area, and have found a few local teas that I really enjoy.

    I came up with a recipe to use the monster zucchini’s my neighbor keeps leaving on my porch. I know I’m not the only one with this problem this time of year!

    My recipe uses black cherry juice that was on sale at our co-op grocery store. I also had a $1.00 off coupon, which brought the cost of the juice down to $1.99. Thanks again for hosting this gathering of great recipes!

    Today I brought some Oatmeal Raisin Walnut bars — they’re gluten-free since I used garbanzo flour, rice flour and certified gluten-free oats, but you can use whatever kind of flour and oats you like, and they’ll be nourishing and yummy!

    Our radishes have been coming in fast and furiously… this is what we’ve been doing with them to help knock out a large crop of the stuff. (Raw radishes can inhibit the thyroid, and they’re rather spicy, so we roasted them to coax out some sweetness and neutralize the thyroid-inhibiting materials.)

    I’ve shared recipes for crispy almond pancakes, a magnesium-rich balanced breakfast shake, and a real food constipation remedy. Thanks for hosting!

    Thank you for hosting! I’m sharing an easy way to spike your salad dressing with vinegar made from a common weed that adds a nice boost of easily-absorbable and safe, natural iron to your meals.
