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!

    Thank you for hosting Wardee and merry Christmas! I’m sharing my recipe for a very easy to make Chocolate Almond Butter Popcorn coated in coconut flakes. You make a very simple chocolate for this, so no worries of soy lecithin or undesired sugars. Great for the holidays parties, to give as a hostess gift or in a gift basket or just to eat, as my kids keep telling that is what they want to do. My son didn’t want breakfast this morning, but this popcorn instead! :-)

    Thanks so much for hosting and Merry Christmas! Today I am posting an inexpensive homemade sauerkraut with a twist – nori flakes. Great time of year to give your body some extra immune boosting support!
