Pennywise Platter Thursday 7/12

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.

    Thought I would share my GF Waffle recipe. They are yummy and just another way to to incorporate Oat Meal in your diet. This recipe can be modified to be egg & dairy free!

    Hi Kimi,

    I’ve linked up my latest ice cream creation, Rich Chocolate Ice Cream, that’s healthy enough to eat for breakfast. Gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, and vegan, it’s super easy to make and tastes delish.

    Hope you are having a great summer!

    Thanks so much for hosting Kimi. I got a copy of your salad book last summer and have been so inspired. What a pretty book. I contributed a lentil salad with olives and fresh mint.

    We look forward to zucchini season each summer so that we can make the chocolate zucchini bread recipe that I linked up! Thanks for hosting!

    This week I’m sharing my post on how my son had his Golden Birthday. I also talk about our family tradition of having the Birthday Fairy visit, and I give my recipe for Yellow Butter Cake with Vanilla-Honey Buttercream.

    I’m also putting on my Nerd Hat to talk about stress, the sympathetic nervous system, cortisol, and other culprits that might be making you fat. (But, as usual, I don’t engage in sizism, and I use the word “fat” as a neutral descriptor.)

    Thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing a tour of my tiny herb garden on the balcony of my condo. I also explore some great articles all on the topic of which fats to consume. And I’m sharing my 5 tips for equipping your real food kitchen on a budget. You can see how I have collected all sorts of goodies at a discount!
