The Simple Lives Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to Simple Lives Thursday, a blog hop dedicated to simple living. “Consume less, produce more. ” So many topics fit: Gardening, raising animals, cooking from scratch, real food, natural cleaners, sewing, recycling, thrifting, a mindset of simplicity, saving a buck…

This blog hop is hosted by (a shortened list due to hosts taking much-needed breaks):

Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions

SLT Featured Post Badge

We really enjoy reading your posts each week! Featured post bloggers, please grab the badge above and display it on your site! Link it to one of the host blogs’ posts for the specific week that you were featured.

Here are our picks from last week’s submissions. Thanks to all who participated — it is always hard to choose!

1. Coconut Cream Chocolate Fudge by The Coconut Mama. “I love fudge. But this, this is different than any fudge I’ve ever had. It’s like eating a dense fudgy brownie.” We’re game!

2. Welcome Fall With Edible Decorations by Green Backs Gal. “Being frugal and green I also like my Fall Decorations to be natural and practical, so I’ve decorated with edible decorations!” Sounds good to us!

3. Learning to Make Milk Kefir by Butter Believer. “Delicious dairy cultured with these curious little clusters of “grains” I kept hearing about — I had been dying to get my hands on some for quite a while. This is a must-make staple of a Real Foods diet.” We agree!

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 host 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!

    Hi Wardee,
    Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing a maple syrup pumpkin pie that my children made last year. Maple syrup is the only sweetener and the pie is very delicious.

    I’m on my old mac and can’t access blogger posts but I will link back tomorrow when I’m back on my other computer.

    Hi Wardee! Thanks (as always) for hosting! I included a few this time, as I had fallen behind last week! Main one…PUMPKIN CAKE that is Gluten Free…and so moist and delish! Hope you enjoy (also a video of me – my first! and a story about my anniversary).

    Hi Wardee,
    I shared my GF DF pizza crust an and article about the important Rodale Institute research that compares oganic vs. conventional ag. The results may surprise you.

    I also shared an update on the 28 day grain-free challenge and an interview with Kristen of Food Renegade.

    Thanks for hosting. I wish I could cook some real food right now, but since I am unable I posted about school nutrition. There is a school that got an award for fighting obesity. They are doing some good things, but I think they fall short on some of their strategies. There has been a bit of a debate in the comments. It is interesting to see what people think. Hope you can stop by.

    Thanks for hosting! I just posted about the Oil Cleansing Method, if you haven’t tried this you should! Your skin will look great and you won’t be using chemicalized products on your body.
