Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #35

I'M BACK!! After a couple of weeks in Greece and being behind last week, WNWNW is up and running again.

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? 

The top three posts from the 2 week Greece edition were:

The Problem with Organic Food from Eco Thrifty Living

Make Your Own Nail Polish Colors
from Live Like No One Else
Basic Goat Milk Soap Recipe 
from My Healthy Green Family

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!

While all my American readers were busy celebrating the 4th of July, Canadians had just finished celebrating Canada Day. So in honour of that I shared a post on Canadian food (and yes, we spell some things with "ou" instead of "o"). I'm also sharing a recipe for a cold pasta for HOT SUMMER WEATHER, with some photos of my trip to Greece! 

Also, I've posted some popsicle photos from a photo shoot for my upcoming book on Oral Allergy Syndrome...


Now it's your turn to share something!  


  1. Wow, hope your trip was amazing. The pictures look great! :)

    This week I'm linking up a fun summer salad: Strawberry Quinoa with a Kick. Thanks for hosting!

    1. Yum, strawberry quinoa sounds great! Thanks for sharing, Miachel :)

  2. Thanks for hosting again! This week I wrote about how to travel on a GAPS/Paleo diet, without cheating. I also linked up to a recipe that gives 3 ways to spice up your burgers. I looooove summer!

    1. I must read this article, even I risked life and limb to defy my own body and eat a teeny tiny little bite of glutinous Greek dessert in Thessaloniki! (How can I write a food blog and NOT try loukoumades??!) Thanks for sharing, Eileen.

  3. Thanks for hosting! I am glad you had such a wonderful time in Greece!

    This week I am sharing how to make meringues with your extra egg whites and how to make raw sour cream. It is better to make sour cream at home as the store bought sour cream usually has additives and hormones and the dairy is always pasteurized. Please leave a comment on my blog and let me know what you think :)

  4. Welcome back!

    This week I shared twice-fried plantains. They're wonderful dipped in strawberry-jalapeno salsa or avocado mayonnaise with crispy fried garlic. Recipes for these dips are also on my blog and can be accessed from the fried plantain post.

    Thanks for hosting!


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