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!

    I shared three tips for making large batches of soup. I love making a lot of soup at once – it saves me time and gives me several meals where all I have to do is pull soup out of the fridge and reheat!

    Thank you for hosting. This week I am sharing…

    (1) Strawberry Cantaloupe Popsicles (sugar free) & Strawberry Teff Pancakes (allergy-friendly) – in the same post. We went strawberry picking so I’m going a little crazy with the strawberries!!

    (2) How to make homemade body spay using essential oils. This is great for those with chemical sensitivity. This would also make a super cute and fun Mother’s Day gift!

    Hi Wardee, happy Thursday!

    I’m sharing a delicious Wilted Swiss Chard Salad with Pine Nuts & Oranges, an interview with Marci @ Amazing Graze Farm on how she went from City Slicker To Farmer, and My Favorite Natural Family Planning Solution.

    Have an amazing day and thank you for hosting!

    Thanks so much for hosting! I have been enjoying your new book so much!!! Made the best pickles ever using your recipe.

    Today I posted why I am using some new methods for fermenting and I also posted about using Apple Cider Vinegar as deodorant.

    Hi Wardee, thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing my Mexican Hamburger Soup and my Chicken and Spinach Breakfast Sausage.

    Thanks for hosting, Wardee! I have some re-usable snack bags and we just love them! Good picks. :-)
    I’ve linked up two this week:
    1. Crock Pot Greek Beef Roast
    2. Peanut Butter and Banana Pancakes

    Thank you for featuring my post on Cuba – I sincerely appreciate it! This week I’m sharing two posts, both inspired by a walk in the woods. One is on ramps – wild leeks – and the other is on my idea of fast food.

  9. says

    Thanks for hosting! This week I have an unusual post. It is a snarky, tongue in cheek bit about how to blow the grocery budget in ten easy steps. I think it is pretty funny and I hope you do, too.

  10. says

    I shared two posts this week – one for an all natural facial toner for clear, glowing skin using apple cider vinegar. And a recipe for Rosemary Lemonade sweetened with honey and coconut sugar.

    thanks for the egg shell idea to prevent slugs… i definitely want to try that! i have heard of using beer to kill them, but beer is kind of expensive, especially in comparison to egg shells.
