Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/3

Happy New Year! Don’t miss my Nourishing Resolution Carnival, my post about why I am not hosting the sugar cleanse challenge this year, and the top recipes of 2012

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 using a new linky format today! Let me know what you think!

The following two tabs change content below.
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!

    I’m new to your site, but I love your concept! I’ve linked up a post about juicing. While there isn’t a printable recipe, I’ve shared 3 different juices and their ingredients. I have such a hard time writing recipes for juicing. I always end up cramming my favorite juice ingredients into the juicer and it’s never the same!

    Speaking of recipes…I am POURING through your cookbook Ladled and LOVING it!! Can’t wait to share it with my readers!

    The links (or the pics or whatever) aren’t showing up when I try to view the website using the Chrome browser. There’s nothing but the header and two comments above mine.

    Sorry to say that I don’t really like the new linky format… I don’t like obfuscated web addresses. And I liked the fact that the old linky format was much more compact.

    Hi Kimi, Just wanted to let you know that the link format doesn’t show up for me on my Mac browsing with safari…. Hope you’re enjoying a blessed new year!

    I’m not seeing links either, and I’m using Firefox. Same settings as I’ve always had, so I’m not sure why I’m not seeing the whole thing.

    Sorry to bother, but I thought I’d chime in that Chrome doesn’t seem to like the new formatting. Thanks! 🙂

    I’m on Firefox and can see everything. Stuff like this can be so frustrating… Nonetheless, thanks for hosting. 🙂 Sharing our method for making “instant” oatmeal which is simply putting all the ingredients in a saucepan and soaking overnight. Easy and delicious. Happy new year to all!
