Simple Meals Friday #14


Welcome to Simple Meals Friday!

It’s so good to be back after our long break! We’re glad you could join us again!
There is nothing like having a collection of simple meals to throw together in a slow cooker first thing in the morning or in a skillet as a last minute dinner. What are your favorite slow cooker, rice cooker, skillet meals and salads?
We want to know your easy to make meals. It’s great learn and be inspired by others. When you link up on any of our sites the links will show up on all the blogs.
Meet Your Hosts
  1. Katie of Nourishing Simplicity
  2. Amanda of Natural Living Mamma

Please Read and Follow these Simple Meals Friday Rules
  • Keep the foods “nourishing”, such as homemade chicken stocks, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats (lard, coconut oil, butter, olive oil, tallow), unrefined sugars, flours and salts and meats.
  • Please don’t include recipes using processed oils such as soy and canola oil, msg laden bouillons and other highly processed foods. Try to incorporate traditional methods of preparing foods like, sprouting, soaking, sourdough and lacto-fermentation. If I notice a recipe using these ingredients it will be deleted.
  • Link back to this blog hop, it is a common linking courtesy. It helps to build a stronger blogging community. That way we can all learn and share with each other.

We enjoyed reading all your submissions. The hosts will pick a favorite post to feature on next week’s Simple Meals Friday. If you want to be featured please be sure to link back to this blog hop. Host Picks From Last Week’s Hop         img_1403-279x300

Foy Update shared this amazing breakfast skillet packed full of eggs, nutrient dense vegetables and minerals. We should all start our days like this!
Slow cookers are the best for simple meals! Have you heard of haybox cooking, the original slower cooker also known as the Norwegian Oven? This fascinating cooking idea and history lesson is from Less Hurried Life.
