Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #75

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? 

This week I'm featuring full meal meat deals (since a couple of weeks ago was a big vegan special 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!

Your email address will not be used for any other purpose.  

And this week I'm sharing some Farmers Market Finds I picked up this weekend at the farmers market, and would love to hear your suggestions for using them up. I'm also sharing the book trailer for my new cookbook, Recipes for Unusual Gluten Free Pasta: Pierogis, Dumplings, Desserts and More! because I'm really excited about it :)
What would you do with these farmers market finds?

And now it's your turn to share something!


  1. Hi Danielle! I love going to the farmers markets and seeing what goodies I can find!
    This week I'm sharing Healthy Egg Free Banana Muffins. I hope you have a great week!

    1. Thanks for sharing those muffins, Sandi! They sound great.

  2. Hi! Thanks for the great link up! I posted a sugar free, dairy free pudding...really!

  3. Hi Danielle. It's my first time participating in your link party, so just wanted to say hi and thanks :)

  4. Thanks for hosting! I've shared Apple Rhubarb Sauce with Vanilla Ice Cream. Though, honestly, the ice cream is completely optional -- the kids have been getting just the sauce in their school lunches all week and they have been very happy! :)

    1. That sounds great, Christine! My husband and I were looking at rhubarb at the farmers market the other day and wondering if we should give it a try. Neither of us were fans of rhubarb as kids, but I feel like we should give it another go now that we're older. I'm sure having it with ice cream would ease the transition :)


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