Pennywise Platter Thursday 6/14

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.

    Sweet potato fries are a great way to make bellies happy without emptying your pocketbook. It’s a nice way to relieve the burden on our budget when we rely on foods that are pastured, local, and organic and mainly eat meat, vegetables, and fruit.

    This week I am sharing my post on how to make Homemade Magic Shell. I call it my “Magic” Chocolate Sauce, that hardens over ice cream, is GAPS-friendly, and gets more coconut oil into your diet.

    I also have a post on 10 Ways to Reduce Stress Naturally. I use them all, and they all help me get to sleep at night!

    And most recently, I have my latest REAL FOOD 101 series, all about how to make Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits. I have 4 recipes there, one for drop biscuits and one for rolled out, and then dairy-free versions of each. And I have tried each of them personally, so I know they all work. Enjoy 🙂

    thanks for the link up. I am on a journey to get more real food into our family diet. It is a journey. I love to see how others are doing along the same path. I love to see what is hapening in others kitchens.
