Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #33

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? 

Last week's top three posts were:

Chicken Nuggets two ways (gluten free) by Fairy Wings and Pixie Dust

Roasted Rabbit...Almost by My Lamp is Full

The Current Preparedness Fair

Free Books by Prep Utility Vehicle

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!

I've been busy this week and have a few things to share! First off, I'm very excited to announce the upcoming publication of my book on Oral Allergy Syndrome, and I'm putting out a call to all those with ALLERGIES TO WHEAT (or gluten), FRESH FRUITS, VEGGIES, NUTS or SOY.  I want YOUR INPUT before it all gets finalized!  

The Makings of an Oral Allergy Syndrome Cookbook

I also took part in last weekend's March Against Monsanto in Vancouver, and shared a post on 4 Ways to Use Kohlrabi.

    I hope you have a great week!

  2. Hi Danielle!
    This week I'm sharing my recipe for Grain Free High Protein & Fiber Bread - that is also xanthan/guar gum free. Thank you for hosting!

    Have a great week!

    1. That sounds great, Megan! I'm always trying to find ways to work out the gums ;)

    2. In retrospect I realize that sounds like a cheesy pun intended!

  3. I always enjoy this party! I linked up a Laundry product post plus All Natural Fly control.
    Fresh Eggs Daily

  4. Congratulations on your book ~ exciting times ahead!

    This week, I linked to my ongoing series on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, as well as a seasonal recipe for Rhubarb Lemon Muffins.

  5. Hi Danielle,
    This week I shared BLT-Ranch Iceberg Wedge, a fun summer salad.
    Thanks for hosting!

  6. Way to go on the march! I've been signing petitions against Monsanto, hope everything helps.

    For Waste Not Want Not, I'm sharing some sweet, simple pops: Cherry Berry Cardamom Popsicles.


  7. Thanks for featuring my bunnies. Happy to report they are all still living. Even the buck! They make us smile. Today I have shared a recipe for cream soups and ranch dressing. Enjoy!

    1. Yay! Glad the bunnies have lived to hop another day ;p

    2. Oh my goodness! Those bunnies are so CUTE!!! I want one. :)

  8. Before I go any further, I have just one word. CHEESECAKE! :)

    I shared two super practical posts this week: how to eat less refined flour, and how to eat more whole wheat flour and like it.... but neither of those taste as good as the vanilla bean cheesecake recipe I shared. And no, having cheesecake on-hand is not one of the tips to eat less refined flour – but it certainly doesn't hurt!! :)

    Thanks for hosting!!

  9. Hello Danielle! Thanks for hosting us! Today I shared Vanilla Cream Dessert Shots with Ginger Granola (gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free). By the by, this is my first post at my new website - (no more Living A Renaissance Life!) - and I'm running a giveaway of my natural skincare products to celebrate! Please stop by!

  11. Thanks for hosting!

    This week I have shared my thoughts on eliminating vegetable oils, and recipes on homemade peanut butter and chocolate peanut butter ice cream.


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