Pennywise Platter Thursday 2/2

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 posted two recipes (slow roasted pork butt and eggs benedict). I also posted an appreciation to my local farmer. Hope you don’t mind. I am hopeful that some local may see it on your blog and want to chime in on their love for the farmers. They have had a rough week.

    Hi Kimi!! Thanks for hosting. I posted my recipe for vegetable soup–perfect for fighting off the common cold (which we are enduring in our household right now). It’s light and nourishing and perfect for pregnancy, breastfeeding, and beyond!

    I am also going to host my first Superfood Sunday on Superbowl Sunday, so be sure to come over and check it out as well (although it won’t be up until Sunday) !!!

    I watch for this in my email each week. I really like this link up. There’s a lot of good information here- especially since I have a daughter on GAPS.

    Running a little behind this week, but it’s all good. We have over a foot of snow since last night and another foot or so expected today. We are going to enjoy the time together! But I am linking to my new post about six things that should not be in your cart. See you later!
