Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #65 & a Mexican hiatus

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 all, I don't have much to report this week, except to give you a heads up that next week I'll be laying on the beach in Cancun (my mother's Christmas gift!), so there won't be a WNWNW, but I'll be back in time for April 2, so I all should be running smoothly again. 

Here are the features from last week: 

Refrigerator Oatmeal (Weight Watchers Style) from Gluten Free A-Z

Cheesy, Creamy, Avocado Pasta (GF, Vegan) from To Live and Diet in L.A.

Chewy Applesauce Oat Bars (gf, df) - These healthy treats remind me of Nutri Grain Bars
Chewy Applesauce Oat Bars from Worth

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 tutorial on making elasticized covers for plates in 15 minutes.

And now it's your turn!

  5. Hi Danielle,
    It is such a pleasure to participate in Waste Not Want Not Wednesday! Organic fruit has been really inexpensive in my neighborhood lately so today I shared "Super Rich Goji Berry Orange Banana Green Smoothie". Thanks for hosting this and for sharing such wonderful and valuable information on your blog.
