Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #76

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? 

Phew - anyone else hit by that tornado last night? 

My heart goes out to all those in the Midwest who were affected by it. Hubby and I were up late with bottled water in hand, ready to make a run for the basement while waiting for the Madison, WI tornado sirens to stop. Luckily our neighbourhood survived with just a few damaged trees but just south of us a couple of houses lost their roofs.

So I hope you're all well this week and ready to party. Tonight I'm featuring some delicious looking baked goods from last week's party: 

Paleo Tortillas - gluten, dairy and nut free from Salixisme
Cinnamon Bun Muffins
Cinnamon "Bun" French Toast Muffins from What Smells So Good?
Healthy Egg Free Banana Muffins
Healthy Egg Free Banana Muffins (GF) from Sandi's Allergy Free

Feel free to grab a badge from the right!

And now it's time to party!

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.
