Welcome Back!

Please read… This info is new!

This is our 39th Simple Lives Thursday — can you believe it? I and the other hostesses are excited how it has grown and we’re thrilled to learn from you who participate each week. Yet, since it is growing, we have decided to reinforce some ground rules. This is to maintain the integrity of the blog hop. (Keep reading for the fun news afterward!) The two rules are…

1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole — such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policemen! But, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.

2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants’ posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.

Now the fun part. We’re excited to share with all of you that starting this week, we will be choosing five posts from the previous SLT to highlight each week. Those chosen will be promoted and linked on all five host blogs. We — Annette, Diana, Alicia, Mare and me — will select five posts each week that resonate with us and that we feel all of our readers should read. As a highlighted post you will also have the chance to win in special giveaways that we will be starting soon — another great reason to link up and share all that you do to live a simple and intentional life!

Featured Posts

We enjoyed looking through last week’s submitted posts to choose which to feature this week! Here they are…

Indian Kraut

1. Indian Kraut from Mexican Wildflower. We all love krauts and love when people create different flavors, and this one with mustard seed and cardamom looks like it would have a wonderful, strong, interesting flavor.

real food dudes

2. Why Eating Meat Is Not Immoral by Real Food Dudes. This post and its comments were thoughtful and interesting. The information shared gives readers jumping points for future conversations.

herbal medicine chest

3. Herbal Medicine Chest: Capsules, Pastilles, Lozenges, Chewables, Gels and Electuaries by Wood Wife’s Journal. She covers the different ways to present natural remedies to the pickiest of our loved ones. “In other words, how do we get our kids to take them?”

chives

4. Foraging: It’s Time For Wild Chives by Loca-faces. In the words of the author, “Foraging is a blast. It connects you more closely with the Earth and the natural cycle of life in the plant world. It gives you traditional skills that are all but lost in the modern Western society.” And it’s the season for chives!

cultures

5. Organizing Cultured Foods and Supplies from Homestead Revival. The post itself and the pictures are beautiful, and we really liked the tips for organizing culture routines and supplies so one can keep up with different ferments.

    Hi Wardee! It’s been a while since I linked up, and it’s good to be back! Congratulations to you and the other hosts on 39 Simple Lives Thursdays! I’ve linked up a post this week about getting started in the garden and the One Pot Pledge, something started over here in the UK to encourage people to grow some of their own food, even if they have a very tiny garden. Thank you for hosting!

    Today I’m sharing our latest muffin made with whole wheat pastry flour, organic applesauce, and just the perfect amount of spices to make them irresistible. We originally made them with 1/2 c. organic sugar but lowered it to 1/3 c. the second time we baked them due to the sweetness of the applesauce. Love the featured posts addition to Simple Lives Thursday; I, too, really liked Amy’s (Homestead Revival) post — she’s sooo organized. Thanks for hosting! ~Lisa

    I love your carnival — so many interesting articles and recipes! I don’t have a recipe this week, but was inspired by the talk I heard yesterday with Joel Salatin as the featured speaker. I’ve linked up a post this week about getting started in the garden and the One Pot Pledge, something started over here in the UK to encourage people to grow some of their own food, even if they have a very tiny garden. this is always so much fun!
