Pennywise Platter Thursday 11/18

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. 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!

    I’m sharing a soup made with a foraged treasure – black walnuts, which are pretty rare where I live. But Black Walnut Pumpkin soup takes full advantage of their strong flavor, and with just a few simple ingredients, creates a luxurious and unforgettable meal.

    For those of us trying to cut back our grocery bill, beans are usually the way to go (and they’re quite healthy, so long as they’re soaked properly). But sometimes (at least where I live), the price of the dry beans doesn’t seem so cheap…
    So I devised a chart to help you figure out how much you’re actually paying per pound of cooked beans, and how much you’re paying per gram of protein, so you’re able to figure it out and compare it to the prices of other proteins, like fish, meat, dairy, and eggs.

    This is a very healthy, nourshing recipe that’s perfect for those mornings when throats are getting sore. 3 ingredient strawberry-banana ice cream. Super easy as well, as there is no ice cream maker needed here….just a food processor. The strawberries provide Vit. C, it’s soothes the throat, is easy to make when not feeling well, and the toppings can really up the ante of health.

    It the time of year when I make and eat a lot of soups. I’m sharing my coconut curry Soup that is made with turkey or chicken bone broth.
    Thanks for Hosting!

    Thanks for hosting this carnival! I posted a ginger cookie recipe that is made with 100% whole nourishing ingredients and is very low sugar (although some readers may find it not sweet enough). It’s one of our favorite snacks.

    Hi Kimi,
    I love your website and all you have to say. I have one suggestion, a silly one actually. For some reason the picture on the Pennywise Platter Thursday is not very appealing, at least not to me, maybe it’s because I’ve seen it so much, or maybe it’s because of the green beans, I don’t know. So my silly suggestion is for a new picture for Pennywise Platter… ?

    I love to come here to gather and share ideas. I did notice, though that the title of this Pennywise Platter post and today’s date are different. This is for Dec. 1st, right?
