Share Your Simple Lives Thursday Post

Bloggers, make a “Simple Lives Thursday” post on your own blog, then come back here to add your post to the linky box below the featured posts. If you don’t have a picture, feel free to download the Simple Lives Thursday banner (at top of post) and upload it using the script’s prompts (it is easy). Your post will appear on all five blogs!

Non-bloggers, feel free to add a comment here with any ideas or thoughts about simple living.

These are two simple guidelines for participation:

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.

What will you share this week? We all look forward to your submissions!

    Thanks for featuring my Cranberry Yummy Gummies. I love being able to make a corn-syrup free treat that is coloured by fruit juice instead of Red Dye #3! Plus I’m a sucker for cranberry anything.

    Hi Wardee,
    Thanks for hosting!
    I added my post about pH by accident, I didn’t realize that I already added this post a while back. I’m sorry about the repeat..

    I know I’m a day late, but I’ve shared two posts this week–one on a honey face mask for clear, glowing skin and the other on barefoot running tip #3 (bend your knees more than you think you need to). Hope everyone enjoys!
