Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #25

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal tips or a healthy living article? Well come join the party!

The Waste Not Want Not Wednesday link-up party is inspired by World Food Day (Oct. 16), and recent articles such as this one that show between 40-51% of food in Canada and America ends up in the garbage.  Over-consumption, lack of knowledge, low cost and over purchasing are common causes of food waste in North America.  This unsustainable over-consumption extends to so many aspects of our lives.

So perhaps if we all share our tips for consuming a little less stuff in general, cooking more responsibly and frugally, and living eco-friendly, we can each take a small part in making our world a little more sustainable.

And besides, who couldn't save a little bit of $$$ anyway? 

Last week's top posts were:

   Orange Cake with Blueberry Frosting

Back To The Basics: An Introduction to Fresh Lotion and a Recipe! from My Healthy Green Family

Eat the Peel from a Life Unprocessed

Congrats and grab a badge from the right!

So what kinds of posts are allowed?

1)  Recipes!  Gluten free ones that is. 

2) Articles about food, sustainability, living healthy and frugal, being green, etc

3)  DIY tutorials for using up odds and ends around the house in a frugal fashion.

* Share up to 3 posts per week.  

What are the guidelines?

1) Post a link on your blog post to back here, or copy and paste the code from the box under the Waste Not Want Not Button on the side bar into the HTML of your post.

2) It might help to leave a comment.  What's your blog and/or your post about?  Is your recipe GF, EF, NF, DF, SF, V (i.e. gluten free, egg free, nut free, dairy free, sugar free, Vegan)

3) Consider telling people you shared here on FB, Twitter or elsewhere and spread the love around, so more people can find this link-up.

4) Don't have a blog? No worries! Share your tips or recipes in the comments section.

5) Visit some of the other posts here, comment on their scrumptiousness/brilliancy/helpfulness/frugality and let them know you found them here and hope for a similar visit.

6) Consider following the Poor and Gluten Free blog on Google+, Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter to stay up to date on happenings here (ok, not a rule, just a little shameless self-promotion).

Each week I'll post the entries on my Waste Not Want Not Pinterest board, and feature different posts on my  Facebook and Google+ pages so be sure to check in there, too to see if you've been featured!

This week I'm sharing two posts,  a tutorial for making super easy Syrian AND Greek style yogurt, and a little post on signs of spring. 

 Now it's your turn to share something! 


  1. Hi Danielle! Hope you are having a great week! This week I'm sharing my Chocolate Cream Pie.
    I'm in the middle of moving my site... Come on over for a visit if you have time!

    1. The site looks great, as does your Chocolate Cream Pie! Thanks for sharing, Sandi :)

    2. Thanks Danielle! I figured I'd drop the bread by since you liked it! :-)

  2. Thanks for hosting again! This week, I wrote about the healing power of an internet break. Just one day offline can be powerfully renewing to the body and spirit.

    1. Sounds like a brilliant idea, I look forward to reading it since I'm always stuck online ;)

  3. Thanks for hosting!
    I'm sharing how to deal with sinus problems naturally and my emergency preparedness post on natural alternatives to diabetes drugs.

    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks for sharing, Jo, those sound really interesting!

  4. Good morning! I have yet to make yogurt, for some reason it seems very daunting. I have your post bookmarked though, and think I will have to just give it a try. It sounds simple enough. :) Have a great week!

    1. Hi Linda, it's super easy. If you give it a try let me know how it goes :)

  5. How do you know if your olive oil is pure? Are you sure it hasn't been watered down with a cheaper vegetable oil? There's only one way to tell (and the label has nothing to do with it). I shared a simple two-step process for determining the purity of your olive oil. I also shared a how-to guide for buying, storing and cooking with olive oil... get that oil off the counter and away from the stove!

  6. Hi Danielle! This week I shared gluten-free, dairy-free, date-sweetened pumpkin custard. Thanks for hosting!

  7. So much creative inspiration around here! Oh my!! Good work....... :)
