Pennywise Platter Thursday 10/25

Don’t forget that we are doing giveaways to promote my book, Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons.  I am giving away a Le Creuset Stockpot this week! Join in on the fun.
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!

    Yay! It’s working!

    This week I am sharing my post on how to get and maintain healthy teeth. It’s about vitamin K2 and mineral rich real food, sure. But it’s also about the root of health for everything, including your teeth: metabolism. Plus, I share my homemade mint toothpaste recipe so you can avoid unwanted daily exposure to toxins on your teeth from commercial and even natural brands of toothpaste!

    Thanks for hosting Kimi! I love the Le Creuset giveaway idea.

    With the holidays right around the corner, I am reaching for kombucha to curb my sweet cravings more than ever. This week, I’m sharing my Kombucha Jello recipe. It’s a quick & easy treat that is pocketbook-friendly (if you brew your own booch) and one of the few healing treats out there. Liver cleansing kombucha and gut healing gelatin make this a treat that you can always say yes to.

    Well, it was quite a week, so I’m a bit late to the party. I’m sharing my latest cheese making post — this time we made feta and it is awesome! Hope some of you stop by to learn how easy it can be to make cheese at home. 🙂

    Hi Kimmi
    Thanks for hosting! I just included a post on how to do a quick, daily liver cleanse. Unfortunately I am doing this way past my bed time so I totally have a typo in the title:( Instead of quick it says quck . If you can edit it from your end I would greatly appreciate it if not hopefully folks will figure it out.
    Have a great week!
