Pennywise Platter Thursday 5/19

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’ve shared recipes for lime and coconut macaroons and nourishing pizza sauce, as well as a post about a heartburn remedy and one about unexpected GAPS diet results. Thanks for hosting!

    Hello there! Today I’m sharing a few recipes using some of our favorite ingredients, strawberries and rhubarb. Jam, sauce and a refreshing soda… yum!

    Gumbo Z’herbs, a spring tonic or Lent classic. This version follows the Catholic prescript of no meat, but is packed with greens. The recipe is also quite flexible, so feel free to substitute other greens than what I used. If you forage for your own, it’s extremely affordable but even cabbage isn’t too pricey.

    First time contributing!
    I shared Ricotta Muffins, which I made for the first time on Tuesday. They used up leftover ricotta so it didn’t go moldy in the fridge, are super filling, and keep really well.

    Thanks for hosting. Today I linked up a post about planning for storage crops. Now is the time to plant (for many of us) to eat from your garden all year round. Many crops can store without freezing or canning, making them an easy and inexpensive way to stretch your food budget.

    Alfredo Sauce is the perfect backdrop for just about anything, this recipe includes adding Cedar Plank Grilled Chicken. Thank you for hosting!

    I’m sharing my Carob Coconut Bites, which are very nourishing and relatively frugal, especially if you buy your ingredients in bulk!

    I haven’t had time to peruse this week’s links but already I see some serious yumminess. Thanks for hosting every week! This week I am bringing kid-friendly pate to the party, and while it is ugly it is delicious. See you later!

    Thanks for hosting! I shared my happy accident of concocting a real-foods version of that unmistakable taste of KFC gravy!
