Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/31

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.

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!

    Did you know that during the pandemic flu of 1918 there was a common home remedy used by many families who did not get the flu? They placed an onion on their nightstands! For more on the amazing onion read my article Prevent the flu: Keep an onion on your nightstand.

    Your fans will LOVE my Beefy Mexican Sandwich. For a healthier option use quality sourdough bread in place of the gluten free bread. It’s awesome!

    Hi! I left an idea for a Harmony Soup Party that I did for a guest post on Paleo Parents! Kind of like a salad bar, but with soup! Super nourishing, and good for any allergies or picky eaters. (Can anyone help me figure out how to download a picture? I keep trying, but it will only work with my gravatar…) Thanks!!

    I have posted a delicious recipe for meatballs that I call “Kitchen Sink” meatballs. They pretty much have whatever was in fridge and they came out delish!
    Oh, they are Paleo, GF and DF to boot.
