Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #77

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? 

It's been a quiet, but busy week for me. I've been working on the formatting of the print copy of my pasta cookbook, Recipes for Unusual Gluten Free Pasta: Pierogis, Dumplings, Desserts and More! Blech. While I love the book, formatting is the bane of my existence!!  On the upside, hubby and I going out for ice cream after dinner tonight to help stave off the heat.

And on that note, this week's summer-y & food related features are: 

Herbal Tea Recipe
Herbal Tea Recipe from Frugal Farm Wife
Monsanto vs Vermont from Organic Simply

Harvesting and Curing Garlic from Lady Lee's

Feel free to grab a badge from the right!

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 asking for your suggestions on using up the organic sorghum syrup and hops I got from the farmers market this weekend, as well as a recipe for Sorghum & Citrus Sauteed Beet Greens.

And now it's your turn to share something!
