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.

Ay! I meant to say “popular” instead of possible! Sorry guys… it’s a great read though! I hope you will like and tweet it up!
Ha, and just as a rebuttal of sorts to your post, the next post linked after your “Is Primal Really the Worst Diet” was my “Thoughts on the Paleo Diet- Are grains really evil?” Hehe, it was a coincidence that it worked out that way, but I find it amusing about the placing. Two sides of the same coin, IMO.
I shared my videos for making grain-free roll out cookie dough and coconut whipped cream.
I also shared the 5 reasons for my current grain-free challenge!
Thanks for this again, I always enjoy seeing all the ideas shared 😀
Today I posted a dessert and a grain free supper idea, to go along with the 28 days of being grain free! The dessert, Hot Cider Floats can be made using cider, homemade ice cream and caramel sauce which is just honey and heavy cream, no corn syrup or refined products needed to make this tasty delight!!
Looking forward to reading more posts that others share later!

THANK YOU for sharing, Jill! You just solved what I couldn’t figure out for the family cookie exchange. PERFECT timing. 🙂

I Kimi, I hope you are having a blessed week! I’m sharing my twist on chococlate sourdough cake. Thanks for hosting!
Thanks for hosting! I am sharing a simple, old family recipe: Angel Food Soup. It is especially frugal if you are using your own eggs.
Love this place to leave healthy recipes. Making soup is my best budget meal; we have the soup one day and use is as a sauce the next. It’s also a great way to eat more vegetables.
I left a link up to a post with a whole grain wild rice and brussels sprouts salad,, including some tips on cooking brussels sprouts. We’ve also started a little discussion about using brussels sprouts in the comments section, so let us know what your favorite ways to eat mini-cabbages are!

If I could send the kids to bed early so I could start cruising all these posts now, I would! This looks great! My contribution this week is a post on how to shop Weston Price at Costco. Hope you can find time to drop by!
Andrea @ Frugally Sustainable
Good Evening Kimi:) Thank you very much for continuing to host this link up! There are so many excellent recipes. I have shared a recipe for pear chutney. It’s one of my favorite seasonal “extras.” I hope you enjoy.

Hello every one the post that I linked is one that I have already linked to 3 other carnivals. I wasn’t going to use that one here but it is a post about the cost of being healthy. That seemed to fit. I am anew blogger and have been spending many hours commenting on blogs and leaving my link. The blog carnivals have definitely helped a lot. I am still struggling to get comments though. If you can hep check the article I linked up to and you can even share there the same thing you write about cost effectiveness here. Also you will see 3 other links to blog carnivals at the bottom of my post. My best deal is the organic free range eggs I buy right from the farm, I get them for 3 dollars a dozen. And they are delicious.

Hi Kimi —
I’ve linked a whole foods recipe for Shrimp Stir Fry with Bok Choy, Mushrooms and Spinach. Besides being nutritious and low-carb, it’s also allergy friendly. I like to make it when I don’t have much time — once the veggies are washed, it can be cooked and on the table in about 20 minutes.
