The Simple Lives Thursday Blog Hop

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. DIY Layered Hair in 5 Minutes by Practical Stewardship. “This haircut is so easy, I’ve never messed up on it.  I’ve never had to go to the salon to make any corrections.”

2. Frozen Greens for Smoothies (Goitrogen Free) by Katy She Cooks. “I kept reading things about raw greens containing goitrogens that can worsen the effects of hypothyroidism. My thyroid has lately tended to be slightly weak — so while I loved getting my greens in my morning smoothie, I thought it best not to eat them raw every day.”

3. Easiest Homemade Sun-Dried Tomatoes from Whole New Mom.“But one day it occurred to me.  Sun. Dried. Tomatoes.  ‘Does it really need to be the sun?  You’ve got a dehydrator, Adrienne.’  There must be a way. And there is! And it’s super easy-peasy.”

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!

    Hi Wardeh, I posted a recipe for Chocolate Ginger Sourdough Cupcakes, plus a little rant about local school programs and Monsanto donations. Have a great week.

    Thanks for hosting! I’ve shared a yummy mango salsa recipe and a post about how you can help get GMOs labeled. Let’s take a step in the right direction for food freedom!
