The Simple Lives Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to Simple Lives Thursday, a blog hop dedicated to simple living. “Consume less, produce more. ” So many topics fit: Gardening, raising animals, cooking from scratch, real food, natural cleaners, sewing, recycling, thrifting, a mindset of simplicity, saving a buck…

This blog hop is hosted by:

Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions

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. Easy BLT Fritatta by This Chick Cooks. “Skillet fried bacon, wilted greens (such as kale, spinach or chard), tomatoes, egg and fresh basil create this winning egg dish.”

2.Why You Should Add Salt to Your Food Storage by A Separate Path. “Salt is a very important item to add to your preparedness pantry. It is useful for so many things, and it never goes bad! Plus, it can always be used as a barter item when times get really tough.” This post shares many uses!

3. Wild Huckleberry Lemonade from Montana Solar Creations. “I started with a basic homemade lemonade recipe and added pureed huckleberries. Oh. my. goodness. It is so delicious!”

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 always learn something when I visit here. :) Thanks for hosting each week and for the opportunity to share a bit of what’s happening in my corner of the blogosphere…which just happens to be a recipe re-do of our homemade ketchup. Blessings!
