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.

    I shared my amazing GF Cocoa Butter Layer Cake with a how to video. I also shared an article about the disturbing Runaway GM Canola Plants found on the side of roads and a report about the FANTASTIC Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund Dinner at the Wise Traditions Conference in Dallas last weekend!. Lastly, I shared an article about the unhealthy school lunches. Thanks for hosting!

    Wardee it was really great to meet you at the conference! Wasn’t it awesome?

    Hello! It was so great following you on Twitter while you enjoyed the WAPF Conference! Thanks for all the info passed along. This week, I’m sharing our 3-minute baba ghanoush recipe. It’s kind of a GAPS-friendly hummus of sorts, for those nat familiar with this delicious middle-eastern dish. We love it! :)

    Wardee! A million thanks for featuring my post highlighting 7 ways to reduce corporate influence in our lives. Today I have linked up a recipe for DIY Soap Scum Spray and an Herbal Cold and Cough Syurp. I have also shared an article that explores 10 Ways To Live In Contentment and Have Enough. I’m happy to hear that you had a great weekend! I love reading your posts:)

    I feel compelled to explain– the no sugar chocolates depend on dried fruit for sweetness. It works incredibly well, and features a lovely balance of flavors. Also, coincidentally, they are gluten, sugar, and dairy free.

    Is anyone keeping track? Was this week a record for number of submissions to SLT? I don’t participate every week but I always read it. I love this blog hop!
