Pennywise Platter Thursday 5/16


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, paleo, 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 as well! 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!

    Another cookie recipe from me this week! I linked to my Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.
    This recipe is gluten free, but it can be made with “regular” flour if you don’t have an issue with gluten.
    Thanks for hosting Kimi!

    Thank you for hosting!!

    We’re working through Nourishing Traditions and the next topic is carbs… What exactly IS a carbohydrate? And what’s the difference between unrefined and refined carbs? Two seemingly simple questions that we must know the answers to before we can begin preparing these foods traditionally!

    This week I am sharing a way to make a temperary filling as well as helping to heal nerve sensitivity if exposed.

    ~My tip in saving money while eating nourishing is to make more grass-fed bone broth and limit meat while getting protiens from other sources like quinoa, rice (brown and white), garbanzo and lentils usually, and some nuts/seeds.

    Another tip is to use up what you have, search online for recipes with the ingredients yo already have, doesn’t have to be fancy, just don’t bring in more food if there is still food that can be used, that wil save in cost and waste.
