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 like what you send, but would it be possible to receive it just ONCE a WEEK? My inbox is crowded already. Thanks!

    This week I’m sharing my post on how my son had his Golden Birthday. I also talk about our family tradition of having the Birthday Fairy visit, and I give my recipe for Yellow Butter Cake with Vanilla-Honey Buttercream.

    I’m also putting on my Nerd Hat to talk about stress, the sympathetic nervous system, cortisol, and other culprits that might be making you fat. (But, as usual, I don’t engage in sizism, and I use the word “fat” as a neutral descriptor.)

    Thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing a tour of my tiny herb garden on the balcony of my condo. I also explore some great articles all on the topic of which fats to consume. And I’m sharing my 5 tips for equipping your real food kitchen on a budget. You can see how I have collected all sorts of goodies at a discount!

    I hope you enjoy my recipe for Raw Pizza Extravaganza as much as my kids do!

    The Raw Pizza Extravaganza (non-dehydrated raw pizza) takes about 30 to 40 minutes to prepare but is well worth it! I have to tell you this pizza trumps any cooked pizza out there! This is what cooked pizza is TRYING to taste like!

    Thanks for hosting Simple Lives Thursday! Can anyone host them? I would love to be a host but not sure if this is possible. Let me know! Thanks!


  1. […] Preheat oven to 375 F. Add oil to a large glass baking dish.I used expeller pressed coconut oil. Spread around to coat bottom of pan. In a medium bowl add dry bread crumbs. Add garlic powder. Add oregano. Add cayanne pepper. Add cheese and mix. If the chicken breasts are large I cut in half so they will have more coating After you cut in the chicken in half rinse under cool water and dip into mixture until coated. Lay evenly in the greased glass pan. I sprinkle any remaining coating on the top of the chicken. Bake for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches at least 165. F If you like them browned more on top put them under the broiler for a couple minutes. Crisps up the bread and cheese. Yummy.
