Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #52

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? 

Last week's top viewed posts are: 

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. 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!

 And this week I'm sharing an article on Sesame Seed Allergies with a recipe for tahini-free beet hummus

 And now it's your turn to share something! 


  1. Thanks so much for hosting!! Have a great week!

  2. Hi Danielle! Thanks for hosting! I like the idea of the Beet Humus. I think I'll have to try that. This week I'm sharing Spaghetti and Meatballs. I hope you have a great week!

  3. Thanks for hosting again! Have a great week.

  4. Thank you for hosting :) Is it just a waiting time now for your book?

    1. Re: the book - yes! It's been a funny situation as I was sprung with some unexpected tax surprises that pertain to all the printers shipping books from the US, but me being a Canadian. It should all be sorted in the next couple of days, though, and the book will be available for order through my site, then shortly afterwards on Amazon, and hopefully not long after through other channels, including eBooks and by order through bookstores.

  5. Beets are my favorite!!! Can't wait to try your recipe :)

  6. Hi Danielle! Not sure if my last comment went through. Thanks so much for featuring my pizza bites! I'm linking up a simple ground beef recipe tonight. :)

  7. Thank you so much for featuring my post: "Food for Thought: 26 Eco friendly Ways to Reduce Your Home Food Waste". I am so thrilled about this!
    Today I shared, "Today I shared ""A Passion for Pumpkins: 25 Fall Pumpkin Smoothie Recipes""
    You are also invited to share your some of your posts, if you like, at my
