Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #63

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? 

Hi everyone! I'm off for "date night" again this week (yup, we're breaking the bank this month, but we just went through "phase 1" of tax season and are celebrating that no one got hurt... yet...) but don't worry, I'll rejoin the party later tonight in case of any glitches.  

The features  from the last WNWNWN party are:

Gluten-free Blueberry Scones
Gluten Free Blueberry Scones from The Frugal Farm Wife

Corn-Free Dogs from Live Free, Gluten Free

Our Daughter's Digestion - Corn Syrup and More! from Living in the Green

  Feel free to grab a badge from the right!

And now it's time to party!

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. Posts without a link back will not be eligible for features, or being shared on my Pinterest board.

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 permission for me 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 automatically 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 my failed attempt to make oat-free granola bars. 

And now it's your turn!


  1. I hope you have a great night out!! This week I'm sharing Chia Seed Cereal.
    Enjoy your week!

  2. This is my first time joining your linkup, so thank you so much for hosting! Unfortunately, I've had plenty of "fail" recipes including just this week, but I think it's through those experiences that you become a better cook or you find what works. One of my better fail recipes was when I tried to make banana pancakes and the pancakes wouldn't flip. I stirred the batter around the pan and it ended up tasting like a perfectly planned grain free "oatmeal". I had to rebrand it that way anyway :)

    1. Lol, I love the "rebranding" idea ;) Welcome to the party, Camille!

  3. OMG those corn-free dogs look legit!!! Def going to be trying those out! Thanks for the weekly link up Danielle :)

  4. HI Danielle,
    Thanks so much for hosting. I'm sharing a healthy, whole grain gluten free pancake mix. Aloha, Lori


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