Pennywise Platter Thursday 9/8

Hello All! My book, Fresh: Nourishing Salads for all Seasons is out now!

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 shared a few links this week- one talking about how I plan to eliminate refined sugar in my house without breaking the bank on expensive natural sweeteners. I also shared a recipe for a fruit shake using a frugal, natural sweetener.
    In addition, I shared a post with tips on how to find, identify, pick, and prepare one of the most nutritious and delicious vegetables out there- foraging for purslane! Best of all, its free!!
    I also shared a recipe for a greek style stuffed pepper casserole, using organ meats (but not tasting like it) and with many substitutions available including vegetarian options, low carb options, etc…

    I just shared a post about my first experience making blackberry jam. I used Pomona’s Pectin no sugar recipe – and it ended up delicious!!! It is so wonderful to be able to make jams without all the sugar!!

    Hi Kimi,
    I shared my Walnut Balsamic Dressing with a video and an article about GM soybeans. I hope you come to FAT TUESDAY and share some of your wonderful recipes!

    This isn’t technically my recipe and the link, goes to a link on my page. BUT we did change it up by adding ghee and real sour cream – and it is SO SO SO good – and cheap. Im in love with beans at the moment and never realised how much difference proper soaking would have, in regards to the ‘gas potential’

    I linked today to a post I did a while back on the general parameters for my allergy-free shopping. Within that post is a link to the allergy-friendly foods that I buy at specific stores. I hope it is helpful to the readers here. Thanks for the opportunity to share!

    Hello Kimi! I’m sharing a recipe for Nourishing Chicken Nuggets. I created this recipe as a way to get organ meats into my toddlers diet. Kids have no idea that these chicken nuggets are so good for them! I also made these grain free for those who are unable to eat grains. You can use homemade sprouted grain bread crumbs in place of the the grain free bread crumbs if you prefer.

    Thank you for hosting!

    I linked up with Strawberry feta salsa. In North Tx strawberries are $1 per pint (for a little while anyway) and avocados are $0.98. It’s a great treat on our grilling days!

    I love finding all these delicious recipes, some flourless, some GAP friendly, thanks for hosting this every Thursday! I shared a yogurt parfait recipe with fresh blueberries but frozen blueberries can be used to. Great for school lunches 😀

    I threw together this rather experimental dessert that I think is worth sharing, especially if you’ve got a glut of overripe bananas like we do.

    I’m sharing my Chocolate Coconut “Larabars”, which are GAPS legal (after you can have cocoa without problems). They are a delicious, raw, enzyme-rich snack!
