Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #44

Got a great gluten free recipe, some frugal, eco-friendly 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? 

Although we're now well in to September and some of you are gearing up for fall, it's still stupid hot in Wisconsin, so I've decided to feature some of the great fruity posts from last week!

Peaches and Cream Ice Cream

Peaches and “Cream” Ice Cream (Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free/ Vegan Option)

Peach Sour Cream Ice Cream from Politically Incorrect Health

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. Posts without a link back will not be eligible for features, or being shared on my Pinterest board.

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 a post my Gluten Free, Locavore-ish Weekly Meal Plan, and a recipe for Gluten Free Hot Cross Buns (with a dairy-free option) in honour of National Hot Cross Buns Day!

 And now it's your turn to share something! 


  1. Thanks so much for hosting! Also thanks for featuring my post from last week!

    I am sharing my favorite chocolate avocado pudding this week.

  2. Thanks for hosting again! A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of eating organ meat, so I created a recipe for beginners. It includes chicken livers (mild in flavor, high in nutrition) with a delicious cauliflower rice.

    1. Sounds great, Eileen. As someone who doesn't really eat meat,I've never really understood why those who do are particular about what kinds of meat/what parts they do, so I'm looking forward to reading your post!

  3. Thankyou for hosting and the lovely feature. Those ice creams sound yummy :-)

  4. Those Hot Cross Buns look fun AND tasty! :) I'm sharing another sweet tooth option: Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream (made from soaked cashews and cold-brewed coffee).

    Have a great week, and thank you for hosting!

  5. First time here, thanks for hosting. I was checking to see if a Waste Not Wednesday already existed and I found you. So much for an original idea ;-) Look forward to sharing some more stuff in coming weeks.

    1. Hi Mrs. Jackson, well I'm glad you found us and thanks for sharing!

  6. Hi Danielle, Thanks for hosting!

    This week I shared a make-ahead green bean-almond salad with fig-balsamic-mustard vinaigrette. Great for using fresh local or homegrown green beans!

  7. Thank you for hosting this link party :) I am sharing Maple Apple Crisp, Fresh Tomato Sauce with Sass and Coconut Zucchini-Carrot Muffins.


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