Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #71

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! Since things are starting to warm up around here, I've decided to feature some posts from last week's party that involve fruity things :)

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 this blog, as well as 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 my recipe for the Best Gluten Free Multi-seed Multi-grain Bread I've ever made.

 And now it's your turn to share something!

  2. Hi Danielle! Thanks for hosting another great party! This week I'm sharing Sauteed Onions Peppers and Sausage Sweet Potato and Mother's Day Meal Ideas!
    I hope you have a fantastic week!

  3. Danielle,
    So excited that you featured my mango salsa this week.. Thanks so much. Love this weekly gluten free party!

  4. Thanks for hosting! I have shared coconut oatmeal cookies. This was the first cookie recipe I adapted once I was diagnosed with severe food allergies. What do you think?

  5. Thanks so much for hosting Danielle and thanks for featuring my strawberry "ice cream". I have shared a post this week on freezer meals. All can be made gf, you would just need gf pasta for one of the recipes. The rest are naturally gf! Have a great day.

  6. Hi, I posted an alfredo cauliflower sauce (which of course you don't have to put on pasta).
    Thanks for hosting!

  7. Thanks for hosting! This week I'm sharing Jammy Gummy Bites -- perfect for using up last year's homemade jam before next jam-making season arrives. Or as a new treat for school lunches. Or as simply an excuse to make even *more* jam this year! :)
