Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #74

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? 

I'm back! Sorry for the unforeseen hiatus, but I had to head north to Canada to take care of some business that ended up taking up a considerable amount of time and energy. However, equilibrium has once again swung back in my favour. One of the reasons I've been so busy is because my new book Recipes for Unusual Gluten Free Pasta, was published just this Saturday, and things have been a bit hectic (you can read more about it on the post I wrote earlier today on it)

Moving on, though, here are the features from the last WNWNW hoe down! Last time around there were some great articles about organic and real food.

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!

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 all about my new cookbook, Recipes for Unusual Gluten Free Pasta: Pierogis, Dumplings, Desserts and More! as well as a recipe for GF, Vegan Matcha Mug Cake (along with a review of Kiss Me Organic's Matcha powder).
