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. Mediterranean Partida Style Olives by Creating Nirvana. “I have never cured olives before much less seen an uncured olive, so this was a real treat.”

2. How We Afford to Mini-Farm on One Income by The Prairie Homestead. “…you do not have to move to the country or shell out big bucks in order to ‘homestead’.

3. My All-Natural, Homemade Beauty Regimen by My Merry Messy Life. “I just love having all-natural homemade beauty products because they are much less expensive than store-bought items with the same ingredients, much healthier and I don’t have to worry about chemicals or how it was made.”

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 a fun post about real food related to a REVOLUTION (the TV series) world. Then I posted a more serious post about the world water crisis and how big corporation are exploiting the shortage and poor developing countries.

    Thanks for hosting! I’ve shared a recipe for some amazing gluten free ravioli made with beets, and an article on the importance of checking your cosmetics if you are allergic to gluten, wheat or have OAS.
