Pennywise Platter Thursday 2/23

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 shared 3 things today. Two healthful snacks masquerading as treats:

    Silky coconut filling w/ a chocolate coating:

    Dense fudgey bites:

    And a great full meal salad and you’re likely to have all the ingredients on hand! Warm molten egg yolks melting over a crunchy, crouton studded green salad!

    Happy Thursday!

    This week I am sharing a favorite Asian inspired dish: sweet and sour chicken (dairy free, gluten free, sugar free). 🙂

    Have a great week,

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi!

    I shared info about planning your veggie and herb garden to maximize the yield from your space and info on whether BPA-free is really all that much better after all.

    Hello again, Kimi.
    Well, baby number 5 could come any day now, so our menu plans are getting simpler by the week so my kids and husband could easily take over. I’m sharing what we’re planning this week, along with recipe links and 2 snack ideas a day. I’m also sharing a soaked German (Dutch baby) pancake recipe. Thanks for hosting!

    I posted my favorite snack recipe – dehydrated kale chips! If you have been following the news on Dr. Terry Wahls’ TED Talk, you know that eating 3 cups of leafy green vegetables each day is important. Kale chips are a great way to incorporate more into your diet. My kids LOVE them!

    I posted a cheesecake I made for my husband for his return from a missions trip. We were disappointed that all the cream cheese in the stores were full of junk, so I just made my own. Tastes lighter than most cheesecakes, The Husband loved it!
