Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #31

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? 

I'm a bit behind this week as I'm in Winnipeg, Manitoba visiting family, so I'm begging your forgiveness for not posting last week's top posts!! I literally have 5 minutes to post this before heading back out the door, so I promise to choose a couple of extra posts for next week's party!

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) 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.

3) 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).

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

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 a post on how to naturally clean your coffee maker (this is important, they can get moldy and gunky inside!) using one ingredient you probably have in your kitchen.

How to Naturally Clean a Coffee Maker
Now it's your turn to share something! 


  1. Thanks so much for hosting again!

  2. Thanks for hosting again! This week I linked up to two articles (1) How it feels to be on a restricted diet where cheating isn’t an option, and (2) How writing can be an important tool on our healing journeys. Have a great time with your family, Danielle!

  3. What with Memorial Day barbecuing next week, I'm excited to share Grilled Pineapple.

    Thank you for hosting again, Danielle!

  4. Hi Danielle. I hope you have a great time visiting!
    This week I'm sharing Spring Asparagus Crustless Quiche as well as Blueberry Scones.

    Enjoy your time :)

  5. I am the world's WORST cake decorator, but my cakes cannot be beat in taste! This week I shared a recipe for chocolate ganache frosting, made with coconut oil and no refined sugars. Rich and delicious, the easiest and healthiest chocolate frosting you'll ever make. I also shared a post from my current series on carbohydrates as we work through Nourishing Traditions. Enriched flour is found in a huge variety of both homemade and store-bought baked goods and it's not as healthy as the food industry claims it to be. Read the post to find out what you're REALLY eating. And as always, thank you for hosting!

  6. Hello and thank you for hosting this party! Many thanks, Lori


I'd love to hear from you so go ahead, leave a comment!
