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.

Hi Kimi. I posted about water kefir grains — how to store them, maintain them, and buy them so you’ll always have great water kefir at home.

Thanks for hosting. I linked to a post in my series on cooking for beginners. It’s an introduction to leeks for anyone who doesn’t yet use them. Hope it’s helpful.

I linked to recipes for:
-fast and delicious honey-glazed pork chops
-simple and easy liver and butter saute
I also linked to a post about home birth, since that is a great way to be able to eat whatever you choose during labor and postpartum. I sure liked having kombucha, homemade chicken soup, sprouted grain toast slathered in butter, and raw milk during my home births!
I love this! I posted how to use up the beet greens!

I save a lot of money by hanging my laundry to dry. I have a whole post on how I get the wash done for my family of twelve. Check it out. Thanks for hosting and your dressing receipe (the poppyseed one) looks fabulous!
Hi Kimi. I posted frozen strawberry pops, the perfect cooking summer treat made with fresh berries and coconut milk. Thanks for hosting this.
And I thought I’d also leave my carrot soup with fennel and maple syrup. Love your healthy focus and can’t wait to get your book!
Dana @ Budget Dietitian
I posted on different teas for the summer.
Kimi, the link to entry #49 (baked oatmeal) doesn’t seem to be working for me. When I click on it, it takes me right back to the top of the Pennywise Platter Thursday page.
I posted on saving $$ by buying discounted, over-the-hill fruits and vegetables and providing recipes for ways to use them. All recipes are gluten-free and cow’s milk-free.
