Pennywise Platter Thursday 9/16

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, 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 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.

    Hello, all! I am sharing a Quinoa Garden Salad, which makes room for just about every colorful veggie your garden (or the Farmers’ Market) provides. You can also add diced meat, cheese, or eggs and turn this colorful dish into a main dish. Have a lovely Thursday, all!

    I love this blog hop!

    I posted about elderberry– my favourite herb in the world for the immune system. With flu season approaching, it’s a good thing to have on hand.

    Hi Kimi!

    I linked up with a post on a woman who is on a mission to rid the food supply of that nasty High Fructose Corn Syrup.

    Imagine all the pennies we could save if we’re not buying pop or anything else with HFCS! 🙂

    If you cannot breastfeed and your baby is allergic to milk based formula, don’t go for the soy formulas! They are so dangerous for your developing baby! My post today is how to make a homemade, safe, healthy, nutritious hypoallergenic baby formula at home.

    The cranberry harvest is here and now is the time to take advantage of fresh cranberries. Cranberries are very tart and so most people find they enjoy them best when paired with something sweet. Here’s a relish made with unsweetened pineapple juice (or juice with no added sugar) as the sweetener. It’s my absolute favorite cranberry recipe.

    Many thanks to you, Kimi, for such an amazing blog!!

    Hefty chunks of heritage pork and white onion are seared in a spoonful of seriously hot lard (gasp!) then slowly simmered in their own juices with stock, roasted tomatillos, Poblano and jalapeño peppers, garlic, cilantro and lime. This is Classic Chile Verde, served with fresh white corn tortillas on the side..

    Happy Mexican Independence Day!
