Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #78

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? 

Happy Canada Day to my Canadian readers!! 
It's been a wild week down here in the Midwest. There have been a few severe thunderstorms, a tornado watch or two, and a couple of flooding alerts. Fun stuff. I hope the rest of you have had milder weather. 

Since the weather is letting us know that summer is definitely here, I'm featuring recipes that make use of ingredients that are in season right now.
