Pennywise Platter Thursday 8/2


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.

    I am new to the world of blogging!!!! This is my first time participating with you all and am so super excited that you are allowing me to be a part of this exciting carnival.
    We are a semi-homesteading family and I am always looking for ways to save on the items that we do purchase. I have shared a recipe for gluten-free Banana Oatmeal Muffins. These are one of my family’s favorite recipes. I love that they are super simple to make and clean up and can be done right alongside anything else going on in the kitchen without taking up too much time or space.
    Thanks for all of the wonderful recipe ideas. I can’t wait to read through them all.

    Hi Kimi,
    It’s my first week sharing a recipe at Pennywise Platter, and I’m afraid I misunderstood and entered my name instead of the name of my recipe. Oops. Sorry for the mix up!

    I’m sharing my blueberry coconut butter recipe. It is vegan, GAPS and Paleo/Primal friendly. My favorite way to eat it is spread on toast, but I’ve also been caught stealing spoonfuls straight from the jar!

    Thanks so much for hosting!
    Megan
