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. God Had Moms in Mind: Benefits of Breastfeeding for Moms by Growing Slower. The many benefits of breastfeeding. Our favorite, “…it promotes relaxation and bonding.”

2. Why We Should All Eat Locally Grown Food by Small Footprint Family. “…by choosing to eat seasonal, local and organic or pasture-raised produce, eggs, dairy, fish and meat, we can curb global warming and pollution, avoid toxic pesticides, support local farmers and enjoy fresh, tasty food.”

3. Hang Dry Laundry Year Round from A Life Unprocessed. This blogger shows us how she saves energy by hang drying her laundry year round –- even in Seattle!

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, this week I posted and article about water quality (this is part two which is relates to what is potentially in our tap water). I also posted two recipes, both stews for the fall — Munggo which is a mung bean soup and Pork Menudo which is a tomato based stew — both are Filipino in origin as my hubs i Filipino.

    Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing two posts today (hope that’s ok). One is a great way to use some of the abundance of zucchini many of us are blessed with right now, the second is a post about the blessings we enjoyed during the month of August and how I spent my blog break. Life is full and good!

    Blessings, ~Lisa :)

    Thanks for the feature on Why We Should All Eat Locally Grown Food! This week I’ve posted our recipe for 30-minute, nutrient-dense, real food chili. Yummy for kids too!

    Have a great week!
