It’s Simple Lives Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share your tips and recipes for living a simple life. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all 5 sites! As a reminder, this blog hop is a way to share with many people your posts on what you are doing to live a simple life. Whether that’s gardening, raising urban chickens, homeschooling, sewing, making your own deodorant, or cleaning supplies… we want to know about it! If you’re into homeopathy, ways to save $ by conserving energy or other ways to live frugally… we want to know about it! If you bike, cook real food, homestead or farm… we want to know about it!

Your Hosts

  1. Annette from Sustainable Eats
  2. Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS
  3. Alicia from Culinary Bliss
  4. Me!

Please read and follow the Simple Lives Thursday bloghop rules

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 policeman, however, 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.

1. Start a Harvest Sharing Program by Food Farm Health.
“Harvest sharing is the idea of linking up people with unwanted fruit trees or berry patches or even extra garden harvests with those who want of it via a fruit sharing organization. It is about rescuing and redistributing food.” This blogger shares her tips for getting started.

2. Meat by clabbermouth.

  1. Thanks for hosting! This is one of my favorite hops. I’m linking up instructions for white pine tea. It’s delicious, practically free, and great for fighting colds and flu.

    Thanks for hosting, Diana. Nice to see you back. Today I linked up a post about making kolache, with a recipe that’s been in my family for generations. You can also find out which ingredient my mom forgot when she started work as a young woman doing baking for the neighbors. :-)

    I hope others will enjoy them, too.
