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!

    Thanks for hosting again this week!

    Today I shared “Gallbladder Cleanse – An Alternative to Surgery” While this may not be the most appetizing recipe, for those who have gallstones or just want to make sure there are no stones lurking – this really works!
    Have a great week!

    I also shared “Oyster Stew” and “Are Diet Sodas Making You Gain Weight?”

    Have a great week!

    Wish I had some pics for everyone!

    I shared my dry soup mix recipe and some recent recipes I made with it as well as some recipe variations and ideas! Winter is the perfect time for homemade soup!

    With the various ingredients it is not only nutrisciou and deliscious but colorful and pretty (cooked and dry mix)in a jar on the shelf (dry mix)
