Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #64

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 don't know about you, but after an extremely long, cold winter we had a GORGEOUS day yesterday, the warmest day so far, and I found myself practically running down the street tearing winter layers off while crying tears of joy. 

Then today came. A cold, gloomy, rainy day. To top it off, my "lady time" started. Yay.

But that aside, I'm happy you're all here for this week's party!  Because I'm feeling like laying on the couch tonight, I've chosen some treats from last week's party that I'd love to munch on while listening to the rain.

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 recipe for Sprouted Chickpea & Sweet Potato Curry Soup (it's gluten free and vegan).

And now it's your turn!

    1. Hi Crystelle - of course you can leave non-food links. As long as it fits the theme of being gluten free or eco-friendly and/or frugal in some way that's fine :)

  3. Thanks for featuring my tea! Love that stuff!

  4. Thanks for featuring my grasshopper bars! :)

  5. Hi Danielle,

  6. Hi! This is my first time post on Waste Not Want Not. Thanks for hosting! March is National Nutrition Month and this year’s theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right”, a campaign focused on food taste AND nutrition. In today’s post I share what “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right” means to me. What does it mean to you?


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