Pennywise Platter Thursday January 27th

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!

    Hooray! I’ve finally found a liver recipe other than pate that everyone in the house will eat. I’ve used foraged bush-cranberries, but I think any home-canned jam/jelly would be just lovely.

    Thank you for hosting 🙂

    Want a simple, nourishing snack that is smooth and creamy? Did I mention there was chocolate in it? Mama…you may find yourself addicted to this super healthy, yet feels decadent, chocolate pudding!

    I have shared a quick and simple recipe using ingredients on hand and is extremely nourishing! A good combo of protein, fats, and carbs that tastes great and is great for you. Thanks for hosting!

    I’m sharing a recipes for a couple hearty, healthy breakfasts that I make with our homemade yogurt. The ingredient lists are ideal but if I don’t have everything, I use whatever is in the cupboard!

    Oh, my goodness! Try my brownie recipe!!! I made these for a high protein snack at the ski lodge last weekend – they are going to be a weekly thing now!

    I linked up three recipes from my new blog: chicken and veggies soup with creme fraiche, peanut butter coconut bars, and egg muffins. Enjoy! Thanks for hosting this.

    Good morning everyone! I am sharing my scalloped potato meal, helping you use up whatever bits of meat you have leftover from everyday, Christmas, Easter or any celebration. With healthy fats from butter, cream, milk, and cheese — this is the best kind of comfort food. Have a lovely day!

    Foraging- getting healthy organic nutritious foods- right from the source- the wild!
    Think foraging isn’t an option for you because you live in the city? Here’s how you can forage in the city as well!

    I have ten kids and homeschool and cook three meals a day. A lot of folks are curious as to how I do it. If you are, then check out my current blog post. Thanks for peeking and be sure I will be cruising these lovely posts as soon the kiddos are tucked in for the night!

    I’m sharing a recipe for Black Bean Burgers. I am trying to cut back on grocery bills. Complete with green beans, I spent under $5 for my family of 7. I had enough leftovers for another meal!

  11. says

    My link did not go to the recipe for crockpot applesauce that I had planned and goes to a recipe that my daughter developed that uses canned ingredients that I don’t think will fit your criteria. I don’t see how to remove it myself.

    I linked up a carrot, cardamom and coconut soup that I invented, and absolutely love! It’s got the sweetness of the carrot, the richness of the coconut milk, balanced by that hint of sharp ginger and the wonderful fragrance of cardamom– Please try and comment! (:
