Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #41

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal, eco-friendly 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:

Grain-Free Bagels (Dairy Free & Paleo) gluten free

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 a post on 9 Ways to Use Squash Leaves and Stems. If you happen to have squash growing in your garden, you can totally make use of those leaves! 

 And now it's your turn to share something! 


  1. Hi Danielle! This week I'm sharing a round up of 40 lunchbox recipes that are gluten free, allergy friendly, and kid friendly. :) Thanks so much for hosting!

  2. Thanks for highlighting my chocolate article from last week. This week I’m sharing the inspiring story of Russ Crandall, who has a rare autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and thickening of his arteries. He had a stroke at age 24 and open heart surgery at age 26, but his health didn’t start to improve until he switched to the Paleo Diet. I continue to be amazed at the power of food. Have a beautiful week!

  3. Hi Danielle! This week I shared grilled orange-rosemary glazed acorn squash. A satisfying side dish that you can grill along with your main dish and that won't heat up the house. Thanks for hosting!

  4. Dang, those grain-free bagels looks so good. :)

    Thanks for hosting! I'm sharing a link to Chickpea Tahini Coleslaw, a light yet filling salad for summertime.


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