Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions
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. How to Craft the Perfect In-Season Salad by Riddle Love. “A good salad doesn’t have to take years to assemble. We just need to know what makes a salad pleasing to the palate and eyes. In my opinion, there are four components (five for a meal salad) to accomplish this: sweet, salty, crunchy, and soft. For a meal salad, at “meaty” to that list. Use this rule of thumb and pair it with what you have to work with for the season and you’ve got yourself one beautiful, tasty, nutrient-dense treat.”
2. Cultured Citrus Marmalade by Natural Health and Prevention. “These are so good and a perfect topper for chicken or fish after you have cooked these meats, put into smoothies, or diced into cooked rice. They are also good eaten right out of the jar. We have had such a bounty of citrus — this is the perfect way to preserve them and keep (and even add to) their high nutrient value.”
3. I can’t knit. I can’t crochet. by Sweet Country Life. “I can recycle a sweater. Cut it into the shape of a hat. And sew it together like nobody’s business! And then put it on the head of this cutie-pie and call it a day. And you can too.”
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 three 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.
3. No giveaway or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.
What will you share this week? We all look forward to your submissions!
