Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/13/11

Join the Sugar Free Challenge, if you dare.

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 my first experience with cooking suckling pigs. Our Tamworths never ever eat any food which is gmo, and they are pastured in the mountains, so these little ones were the best of the best.

    I linked up a recipe and “how to” post on introducing green smoothies by starting out with a virgin pina colada made of real food ingredients and then adding one ingredient to make it green. 🙂

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi!

    I’m working on teaching my daughter how to bake and have a great recipe for whole wheat raspberry muffins. These are a great way to use some that we stored up during the summer! I’m also learning how to adjust my favorite recipes to healthy, nourishing ones; sometimes this is easy, and sometimes not so easy. Thanks for all the great ideas and recipes!

    Hello, a well stocked pantry is the key to pennywise dinners. If your dinner needs a bit more to make it complete, fresh bread is the answer. No matter the recipe, your own ingredients make it special for your family. I hope you enjoy this, it was my first time using saffron. Thank you.
