Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #40

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:

Flourless Chocolate Cake from My Lamp is Full

April 3 2013 043
Garden Update and Plans for the Winter from Lady Lee's Home

Farmacology - A Book Report from Living in the Green

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

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.

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 me permission to share your photos on 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 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 sharing some more random photos for my upcoming cookbook (i.e. Italian Zucchini Squash Pasta, Shroom-less Vegetable Pot Pie, Thai Salad and Mango Vegetables) and my Yogurt Balls In Olive Oil.

 And now it's your turn to share something! 


  1. Hi, Danielle. I'm excited to be back to blogging after a bit of a summer break. I hope all is well with you. It looks like you've been busy!

  2. Thanks for hosting, Danielle! :)

    This week I'm sharing a how-to for summer fruit sorbets (replacing white sugar with yummy honey). My favorite of the two recipes is Apricot Ginger!

  3. It’s Choco-Love week on my blog! First, I did detailed research into its history, health benefits and health concerns, to discern how it fits on a healing diet. Then, I shared my recipe for homemade chocolate with natural flavor infusions. I gotta say, that was the most fun recipe testing I’ve done in a while!

  4. Hi Danielle! Thanks for hosting! This week I shared bacon-wrapped dates.


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