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!

    Current research shows that at least 10 ounces of cranberry juice is needed daily in order for its bacteria-blocking benefits to work efficiently. We can access these benefits from a variety of products such as juice, sauce, dried, and of course fresh cranberries. Here’s my favorite grab-and-go snack I’ve invented over the years with dried cranberries, coconut, granola, and some nuts.

    How much do you pay for your grass fed beef? In my article I share my personal experience with “cowpooling” which is when you buy a quarter, half or whole cow and share amongst other people. I purchased a half cow and shared it with 4 other groups of people. The TOTAL COST was less than $3 per lb. Most will find it around $4 which is also a fantastic deal.

    I have a simple cashew cream that tastes fabulous and is easy to make. It tastes fabulous on a piece of toast, on a muffin, or even on some berry pie. Thanks so much for hosting – it’s so much fun to see what everyone comes up with each week.

      Kimi I’m so sorry, I mistakenly posted the wrong link this morning. I meant to post Part Two of the Book Review on the “What the Bible Says About Healthy Living Cookbook-Part Two.

      I’ve just posted it. So sorry

    I am tending meals that include everything in them. I find you need less of each ingredient, that way, especially if one used rice or pasta as one of the ingredients.

    I’ve been making my own bread and jam; if I could grow peanuts here, I could really say I make my own lunch! I don’t have a blog to use with Mr Linky, so I’ll just say I found my bread recipe on the flour bag and my blackberry-apple jam recipe online. Nothing is more frugal than making jam from foraged apples and berries–since the apples provide the pectin, the only ingredient I paid for was the sugar!

    This is a meal I like to make that will last for a few days and it costs around 82 cents per cup. You can use any pasta or grain of your choice, my sister has gluten issues and I made this in the past using the DeBole’s brand Rice pasta (linguine – is her favorite). Play around with this recipe and let me know what you think! I can’t wait to try all the previous recipes everyone posted. Thanks Nourishing Gourmet!

    Grain free, gluten free and sugar free gingerbread with a healthy cream cheese frosting, makes a perfect treat for your healthy lifestyle! Get the recipe now, so you can use it during the fall and winter months (so warming!).

    I’m offering a recipe review/adaptation for crepes. I made both savory and sweet. Delicious, inexpensive, nourishing, and great way to use whatever you have on hand. 🙂

    I try to buy a side of beef once a year. I make sure the butcher gives me all the bones, liver, heart and the muscle meat. They are wrapped in paper and cut into roasts, steaks, stew meat and ground. A large freezer is a must! This is the most economical way to eat good meat. Check out my website for recipes!
