Posted · 9 Comments



Announcement… please re-read the simple guidelines for submission (below) so you can be sure your post matches the spirit and theme of this blog hop. Please do not submit giveaway posts. Also, please remember to link your post to one of the host blogs!

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 4 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 (for the time being, due to hosts taking breaks)

  1. Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS
  2. Alicia from Culinary Bliss
  3. 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.

3. No giveaway away 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.

Here are our picks from last week’s submissions. Thanks to all who participated — it is always hard to choose!

1. Waste Free Shopping Kit by Her Life in a Blog.
Dana says, “I’ve been working on my zero waste shopping kit.” She’s off to a good start — you’ll be inspired like we were!


2. For the Love of Glass Jars by Mexican Wildflower.
Katie gushes (and we don’t blame her), “I love glass jars! There is such a simplistic beauty about them. They aren’t just for canning and preserving food. There are so many uses for them.” We couldn’t agree more.

    Good morning! Thank you for hosting this weekly round-up! Easter is coming up… I should rejoice instead of cringe. Within weeks I will play the bad guy… again. Everywhere we turn, people will be trying to treat our kids with multi-coloured candy and other garbage. (I actually intercepted Peeps at Christmas. Who gives Peeps to a three-year-old? The same person who brings them for his little brother!) I shared an account of how I felt, as a child, to react to food additives. I also shared an MSG-free recipe for ranch dressing.

  2. Thanks for featuring my post! Question though, how do I link the badge? :)Hope you are having a wonderful week!

  3. Dana says:

    OMGosh! That’s me you have listed this week! I’m grinning from ear to ear. :)

    I so enjoy your blog! Thank you for inspiring me to do better, live better and think more!

  4. Perhaps “moooing” at people is not the best way to make friends…

    this week I’ve shared my interpretation of baby cow piccata. Love it!

  5. As always, thank you for hosting. It’s so much fun to link up and see what other people are doing!

    This week I’ve linked up my ideas for a Winter panzanella salad:

    as well as my first quiche I’ve ever made.

    I know right? It just needed to be done :)


  6. Thanks so much for hosting! I shared a Roasted Spaghetti Squash w/ Green Garlic, Brown Butter & Parmesan recipe. The green garlic adds a wonderful, mild, garlic flavor. It’s so yummy! Thanks again.
