Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #39

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal, eco-frienly 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? 

The top three posts from last week were:

Self Heal Tea (Prunella Vulgaris)
from Wildcraft Vita 

Natural Skincare: Homemade Exfoliating Cleanser
from Farmers Market Vegan

Cranberry Orange Bars (Grain Free, Dairy Free & Paleo)
Cranberry Orange Bars (Grain Free, Dairy Free & Paleo)
from Laura's Gluten Free Pantry

Congrats and feel free to grab a badge from the right side bar! 

What are the guidelines?

1) Please 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 so others can find the party, too.

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.

* Share up to 3 posts per week.  

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!   

* By linking up you give me permission to share your photos on my Pinterest and Facebook pages. I will always credit you and provide a link back to your blog and your photos won't be used for any other purpose. You will also receive future email notifications for the Waste Not Want Not party only, which you can easily opt out of at any time. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose. 

 And this week I'm sharing some random photos for my upcoming cookbook (i.e. Blueberry Chai Pancakes, Cantaloupe Coffee Cake, Chocolate Crepes and Thai Wraps) and my Grandma's recipe for Dill Pickle Cucumbers.

  1. What a lovely surprise-thanks for the feature and for hosting Danielle x

  2. Hi Danielle! Thanks so much for hosting. I've linked up 3 posts today, fish taco salad, tips for dining out and some baked apples. Have a fantastic day!!

  3. Hi Danielle,
    This week I shared prosciutto-wrapped melon. If you can find Galia melon, it's extra good with the prosciutto.
    Thanks for hosting!
