Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/10

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’m going back to the older format, at least for today, since many had trouble seeing the other linky format last week. 🙂

The following two tabs change content below.
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!

    So sorry~ my first link I entered was wrong. Please feel free to delete #21! The second entry of “What should we eat, and does it matter?” is correct.

    I’m starting a new series on trendy diets, and this is the first. 🙂

    Our key to eating healthy and saving money is dried beans. The best nutrition for the least $. Soups mostly, but I have mastered the art of baked beans this winter and I make a double batch that lasts all week. Crazy schedules can take advantage of the baked bean pot–it goes with eggs in the morning, sausage or all-natural hot dogs in the evening, or warm up a scoopful for a snack. Very satisfying and oh, so budget-wise.

    I’ve been a subscriber and browsed a lot, but this is my first time linking to you. 🙂 I just grabbed a recipe I already had on my site, so hang tight while I edit it to link back to you. 🙂

    Love you blog!

    Thanks for hosting the link-up! My recipe for banana muffins is very versatile, with gluten-free and dairy-free options. Plus a link to my Paleo banana muffins.
