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 posted one of my very favorite dinners – a slow cooked spiced beef stew with dried fruit.
I posted three this week. My take on Local Food Buying, a recipe for cherry almond granola, and variety post that list some of our back articles.
I’m also sharing a stew, one made with venison and milkweed pods. The smoky, warming dish can be made equally well with beef and okra. http://hungerandthirstforlife.blogspot.com/2012/02/smokey-roadkill-stew.html
Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry
I shared my Raspberry Pancakes (Gluten & Dairy Free) and Kid Approved Green Smoothie recipes this week. Cheers!
Tessa Domestic Diva
I shared 3 things today. Two healthful snacks masquerading as treats:
Silky coconut filling w/ a chocolate coating: http://tessadomesticdiva.blogspot.com/2012/02/coconut-secret-barshomemade-healthy.html
Dense fudgey bites: http://tessadomesticdiva.blogspot.com/2011/05/raw-fudge-bites-w-toasted-coconut.html
And a great full meal salad and you’re likely to have all the ingredients on hand! Warm molten egg yolks melting over a crunchy, crouton studded green salad!
This week I am sharing a favorite Asian inspired dish: sweet and sour chicken (dairy free, gluten free, sugar free). 🙂
Have a great week,
Thanks for hosting, Kimi!
I shared info about planning your veggie and herb garden to maximize the yield from your space and info on whether BPA-free is really all that much better after all.
d.liff @ yelleBELLYboo
This week I’m sharing one of my favorite low-cost recipes – “Poor Man’s Shepherd’s Pie” http://yellebellyboo.blogspot.com/2011/05/poor-mans-vegetarian-shepherds-pie.html
It’s vegetarian, loaded with health foods, and SO delicious!!!
I posted a delicious probiotic and enzyme rich salad dressing.
Melissa @ Dyno-mom
Thanks for hosting! This week I linked to my post on homemade sprouted kamut pitas. They are pretty easy, so no need to panic! Hope you stop by and give it a look!
Katie @ Riddlelove
Hello again, Kimi.
Well, baby number 5 could come any day now, so our menu plans are getting simpler by the week so my kids and husband could easily take over. I’m sharing what we’re planning this week, along with recipe links and 2 snack ideas a day. I’m also sharing a soaked German (Dutch baby) pancake recipe. Thanks for hosting!
I posted my favorite snack recipe – dehydrated kale chips! If you have been following the news on Dr. Terry Wahls’ TED Talk, you know that eating 3 cups of leafy green vegetables each day is important. Kale chips are a great way to incorporate more into your diet. My kids LOVE them!
Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips
I posted one of my family’s favorite recipes, Mango Avocado Salsa. I make one batch, and we have it for dinner, and can use it for a few lunches, because I have lots of ways of “re-purposing” it.
Debbie @ Easy Natural Food
I’m sharing my Moroccan Lamb Stew, Thai Beef Coconut Soup and my new favorite ferment – Beet and Cabbage Kraut! Thanks for hosting 🙂
Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips
I shared my recipe for Mango Avocado Salsa. I like to make a big batch, then we use it for dinner, and I have a bunch of ways to “re-purpose” it for lunches.
Joy at The Liberated Kitchen
If you made the lemon curd I posted last week, you’d have a bunch of egg whites left over!
What to do with them? Meringue cookies! Don’t let the GAPS diet or other refined-sugar-free diets stop you – they DO work with honey… if you follow my steps!
Thanks for hosting–we made a white-sugar-free honey ice cream–delicious!
Emily @ Recipes to Nourish
Thanks so much for hosting! I shared a Roasted Spaghetti Squash w/ Green Garlic, Brown Butter & Parmesan recipe. The green garlic adds a wonderful, mild, garlic flavor. It’s so yummy! Thanks again.
Sonja @ practical-stewardship.com
I am posting a No Flour Brownie, that’s sweet, tasty, and the base is…black beans!! I have loved making these and sharing these with different people!! So fun because they didn’t know they were eating so healthy!!
Bonnie @ The Naked Kitchen
I added a post on roasting chicken (easy and cheap… and healthy!!). The post also includes tips on financial management. I am not a banker by any means, but I have a business degree and an extremely good personal track record. I’m more than happy to chat any time!
Thank you for hosting! I shared my Moroccan inspired meal. Including spice blend, Moroccan stew and a nice flat bread recipe. Delicious!!!
I posted a cheesecake I made for my husband for his return from a missions trip. We were disappointed that all the cream cheese in the stores were full of junk, so I just made my own. Tastes lighter than most cheesecakes, The Husband loved it!
Rita @ Healthy Mom, Sexy Wife
I posted my new favorite dessert – a single serving brownie that takes less than 3 minutes.
I posted a DIY aromatherapy hydrosol. Can be used to add a little punch to food, freshen breath, tone your face, or alleviate tired feet!
Laureen @ Fox in the Kitchen
Hi there, this week I’m sharing my Almond Ginger Chocolate Cake (Grain-Free, SF) and a family favourite, Coconut Cake (Grain-Free, Sugar-Free). Enjoy!
Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots
This week I have been quite ill, but I finally turned the corner this morning thanks to all my real foods and home remedies! So far this week I only have one post up: the wrap up for the GAPS Challenge. Come see how everyone did, and what their plans are NOW!
Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots
I am also sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post, a really quick Japanese fish stock called “dashi”. Perfect for GAPS, too 🙂
Don’t waste a quality chicken by letting it get dry during cooking. Brining ensures a moist and tender bird.
