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.

Thanks Kimi for hosting this! Shared a healthy version of sweet and sour meatballs this week, my children absolutely LOVE them.
For any of you who struggle to get your children to “eat their greens”…this post is for you!
Believe me, if it worked for me and my family of 7….it can work in your home, too.
Thanks so much for hosting! We linked Part 2 of our Q&A session on raw milk. Topics include the safety of raw milk, the low-fat/skim scam, and milk alternatives in case of allergies. Hope it is a helpful resource for your readers!

Sharing our latest muffin — almond poppy seed. They’re made w/ whole wheat and are low in sugar, but no one will ever know. Thanks for hosting!
Hope you had a great holiday season! I posted a curried goat liver recipe and a curry mix that I gave away as gifts in my Christmas baskets this year.

Good morning! This week I’m sharing our soaked, late harvest fruit medley crisp recipe. It’s sweet, tart, and everything you’d expect in a fruit-ish dessert. 🙂 Thanks for hosting and have a great week!
Joanna @ plus other good stuff
I’m sharing a delicious recipe for Honey Oatmeal Bread. It’s our favorite yeast bread, and I adapted the recipe to be mostly whole grain and soaked. Thanks for hosting!

This week I am sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post on How to Make Beef Stock: http://www.ournourishingroots.com/real-food-101-how-to-make-beef-stock/ This is just in time for my GAPS Challenge which starts on January 15th.
I also recently celebrated my baby’s birthday! I made him this Yellow Coconut Cake with Cocoa Buttercream Frosting. Perfect for a birthday, Valentine’s Day, or another holiday that calls for a homemade cake 🙂

Hi Kimi…cross you fingers for some snow for us in the Portland Metro!! I shared two dinners, one vegan! I have been craving salads of late…your book is tempting me!
I shared a recipe for one of my easy dinners: meat sauce on zucchini pasta. Grain-free and GAPS-legal. Thanks for hosting!

I love getting new ideas from Pennywise Platter and I’ve finally contributed my own recipe, featuring ground beef heart!

Thanks for hosting and have great rest of your week 🙂
We had to drop our overall budget, fast! Here are 10 ways I’m doing that with groceries while eating real food.
Melissa @ Dyno-mom
Thanks for hosting us every week! This week I linked to my post about making a good start to the year by switching up to higher quality eggs and did a price analysis to show that it is actually affordable. I also have links to recipes and lots of ideas for what to do with all those eggs!
Hi Kimi!! Thanks for hosting!! I linked my recipe for granola bars. The grains are soaked and slow cooked to whatever consistency you like. These are so great for my family who is always on the go.
Adrienne @ Whole New Mom
Oops – just realized I linked the wrong post! I’ll share next week – lots of healthy DIY options for the kitchen and home :-). Thanks for hosting, Kimi!
Emily @ Recipes to Nourish
Thank you so much for hosting! I shared a Chai Tea recipe. My version does not have black tea and has a few uncommon herbs in it (for extra nourishment). It’s absolutely delicious. Thanks again.
Kresha @ Nourishing Joy
I just posted our family’s recipe for making refried beans in the slow cooker on my blog. It’s an easy, frugal way to make plenty for several meals!
Thanks for hosting. I’ve linked up a simple and inexpensive dish of round steak with veggies. I like using round steak to save a little money.
This week I am sharing two recipes.
An easy 10-minute dairy-free mushroom soup & a fun dessert: coconut ginger granola (made into fun parfaits with a vegan persimmon pudding).

This week I linked up our buying guide for a deep freeze! In the previous post we calculated whether ours had paid for itself and it definitely did. So we decided it was time to add to the family 🙂
I’ve recently been experimenting with a basic recipe of white navy beans, eggs, and baking powder and creating sweet bakes (Banana-Coconut) and savoury ones (Cauliflower with Cheese, Dill, and Olive). I’m really excited about these bean bakes because they have the texture of a carb product (thereby fulfilling my carb craving), are delicious and filling, and are cheap in calories and on the pocketbook!
Hi everyone, After overwhelming my regular blog, The Food Refashionista, with bean bakes, I decided to give them a blog of their own. These bakes are a great way to get lots of protein, fiber, and healthful nutrients for very few $$. The basic ingredients are 2 cups of white navy beans, 3 eggs, and baking powder–for 8 servings–that’s basically about $1.20 (CAD) per entire bake if you start from dry beans. Then I’ve added different fruits or vegetables, spices and herbs, etc. to make either sweet or savoury bakes. Another great bonus: They’re low in calories.
