Waste Not Want Not Wednesday - the 2 week Greece edition!

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal 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? 

Sorry I didn't get a chance to pin everyone last week, I've been busy prepping as I'm leaving for Greece tomorrow for 2 weeks, so this week's WNWNW will last 2 weeks while I'm away.   

* Also, I've noticed recently that some linked posts pertain to wheat and other glutinous products.  Please stay true to the link party rules, keep it gluten free and don't forget to add a link back to the party on your post (those that don't will not be eligible for features here or on my social media sites, and repeat offenders will have their posts removed).  Thank you!

Last week's top three posts were:

Congrats and feel free to grab a badge from the right side bar!

So what kinds of posts are allowed?

1)  Recipes!  Gluten free ones that is. 

2) Articles about food, sustainability, living healthy and frugal, being green, etc

3)  DIY tutorials for using up odds and ends around the house in a frugal fashion.

* Share up to 3 posts per week.  

What are the guidelines?

1) 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.

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.

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!

This week I shared 3 posts in preparation for my Greece trip: one with 8 Free & Easy Summer Dress Tutorials, a review of some Dr. Bronner's products, and some photos for a Gluten Free Asparagus & Asiago Flat Bread for my upcoming book on fruit & vegetable allergies.
