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. Shamrock Shake Season by WHOLEmade. “There is nothing but wholesome stuff here- and even the minty green color is naturally made by the ingredients (no food coloring here!).”


2. Quick Tip, Less Weeding and Save Water by The Redeemed Gardener. “Here is a quick way to conserve water, keep down unwanted grass and weeds in your garden and it doesn’t cost too much”


3. Orange-Cream Layered Jigglers by Girl Meets Nourishment. “I LOVED creamsicles growing up. I worked in an ice cream parlor for summer jobs in high school and I would make creamsicle frappes with orange soda and rich vanilla ice cream. These little jigglers are better than candy, they truly are like mini-creamsicles in your mouth.”

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! I linked up to 2 articles this week (1) An inspiring story of a mother who stopped her son’s seizures through diet instead of meds, and (2) An update on olive oil fraud – why it’s happening & how to be sure yours is the real thing. Have a great week, everyone!

    Hi there, thank you for hosting! I shared 2 of my posts this week:

    1. The Lengths People Go to Get Clean Food- With our food supply being tainted with toxic things left and right, it’s no surprise people will go to great lengths and drive great distances to obtain clean food. I’m sharing a video about what someone did in the “slum” part of LA. He created a community garden to bring healthy food to the community and keep kids off the streets. —>

    2. An Exciting Change That Benefits You- My series Tuned-in Tuesday is changing into something different and it may very well benefit you, check it out! —>

    Thank you for hosting Wardee! :)

    As if the taste alone wasn’t enough, this week I shared 13 reasons to eat more butter… plus a post on how to bake with healthy fats, including – you guessed it – butter!

    Hi Wardee!
    I have a comment about your choice for the SLT featured posts from last week: “Quick Tip: Less Weeding Save Water.” Most newspapers today are printed with soy-based ink, which means GMO. By using newspapers in your garden as mulch, you will introduce GMOs into your garden soil and then into your plants. Most people don’t think about this aspect of it.
