Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #38

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal, eco-frienly 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 last week were:

Have Cracked Heels? This Works! from Gluten Free A-Z Blog

Foolproof Gluten Free Pizza Crust from Allergy Free Alaska

Yeast Free Onion Dip
