Pennywise Platter Thursday 8/25

Hello All! My book, Fresh: Nourishing Salads for all Seasons is out 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.

I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!

    Eliminating grains from a diet can be difficult when you are getting those pasta cravings, particularly for me the blue box blues. So I thought I’d share with everyone a grain free “mac” n cheese idea, using cauliflower instead of pasta. Happy eating!

    Hi! My recipe is an allergy-free bean chili that’s ready in just 20 minutes … great for those summer evenings when you have so many more fun things to do!

    Thanks for hosting! This is my first time linking up here. My blog specializes in food allergies while living on a budget.

    I hope to make it back here every week. I can’t wait to check out all the great recipes.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Thanks for hosting; I just ordered your book Kimi, and I don’t order new cookbooks very often since I have so many and I wrote my own cookbook The Northwest Vegetarian Cookbook (2011,Timber Press). I’m so inspired by your love of fresh food and healthy recipes (why don’t other bloggers move beyond cupcakes?). I love your concept of a salad book! Thanks for the inspiration!!
