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. Are You Chewing Your Food? by The Kitchen Rag.
“Do you experience idigestion, gas, or bloating after eating? Are you lethargic and fatigued at the end of a large meal? While these can be symptoms of digestive disorders or food allergies, before you begin elimation diets, doctor’s visits, and blood tests, I encourage you to ask yourself one very simple question: Am I chewing my food properly?

 


2. Cold Storage Closet by Simply Loving Home.
“Last year some of the squash went bad because I couldn’t use them up fast enough. The air wasn’t moving around in the basement space, it was damp with a dirt floor and they simply spoiled! We didn’t want that to happen again…”

 


3. Tomato Powder: How to Make & Use Powder from Dried Tomatoes by Traditional Foods.
“If you garden and preserve a lot of food, sooner or later you face the problem of all those who tread the same path before you. Where do you store it all?”
