Pennywise Platter Thursday 5/2

Please excuse how late this is! I was speaking this morning to a group of ladies on the topic of food, health, and diet from a Christian perspective, and with feeling a bit nervous and focused on that, I forgot to get Pennywise up! Also, don’t forget about this wonderful deal with one my affiliates for 97 ebooks, and $140 dollars worth of free gifts for $29.97! That’s a real pennywise deal. 🙂 It’s only available for the next two days! 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!

    Thank you for hosting!

    This week I shared two posts dealing with apple cider vinegar. Not only does it make for a simple and effective (and frugal) produce wash, but it can also be used to remove moles! (That was my husband’s crazy, yet successful idea, by the way! 😉 ) Have a blessed day!

    I shared my recipe for Macadamia and Dried Cherry Cookies. This recipe is gluten free, but it can be made with “normal” flour if you don’t have an issue with gluten.

    Thanks for hosting!
