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. Take the Urban Farm Handbook Challenge by Sustainable Eats. “Twelve months, eleven challenges and one reflection month, all on your schedule and at your level of ease.” A homesteading challenge, month by month. Sounds like fun!

2. Winter Chickens by City Sister Country Sister. Great tips on caring for chickens during the Winter.

3. Cherry Almond Baked Oatmeal by This Chick Cooks. This naturally sweetened baked oatmeal looks like a fantastic way to start the day.

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!

    Wardee, Thank you for featuring the cherry almond baked oatmeal and being our hostess each week.

    Today I shared 5 tips for whole foods on a budget and a yummy recipe for pastured pork chops that is really simple and quick.

    Have a blessed day.

    I shared a recipe for braised short ribs with gravy (SCD/GAPS), Valentine Day Linzer Hearts. Also, an article about the relationship between diet soda and stroke, and I tried to answer the question: are grains toxic or safe?

    Help me celebrate Real Food Forager’s one year anniversary!

    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Wardee,
    Yum, cherry baked oatmeal! I pinned that one to try this week. Today I’m sharing tips for buying and raising chickens that come from Kim of Chestnut Farms, our local meat CSA. Hope you enjoy and thanks as always for hosting.

    Hi Wardee! Congrats on your upcoming book and thanks for hosting another great round-up.

    Today I’m sharing a Black Bean, Broccoli & Quinoa Salad with Blackberry Serrano Sauce that my husband whipped up. And an Oven Roasted Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Cipollini Onions recipe. This chicken was amazing.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Hi Warheh! I put up #58 and #59 this week, the first a wonderfully easy recipe for homemade lip balm that works well even high up in the mountains where I come from and the second is some research I undertook to find out how fresh our vegetables actually are. How Fresh is Fresh? Seasonal Celebration Linky #3 is still live – hope to see you there!
