Waste Not Want Not Wednesday - September 2, 2015

<a href=“”><img src=“ ”></a>

Welcome to the Waste Not Want Not Wednesday link party! WNWNW is a place to find (and link up) gluten free recipes, eco-friendly tips, and frugal DIY tutorials. This link-up party is inspired by World Food Day (Oct. 16), and studies such as this one that show that 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 $$$?

I'm sorry I didn't get around to visiting people this week - thanks to a massive windstorm our power was out for 33 hrs this weekend, and as of last night I know there were still pockets of people without. I hope any of you in BC affected by it are ok now!!

Sadly, my car is now on the fritz, so I've been running back and forth to the mechanics, and the hot water heater in our apartment died along with the power so we've had NO hot water since Friday...

Sooo Danielle is having a no-good very bad WEEK!!

But enough whinging, I still had time to pick this week's features and they are:

Southwestern Quinoa Salad from The Tasty Alternative

Mashed Potato Love from Bizzy Bakes

Continuous Brew Kombucha vs Batch Brew. Which is Better? | Phoenix Helix
From Phoenix Helix

  1. Hi Danielle! Thanks for hosting! This week I'm sharing Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
    I hope you have a great week!

  2. I just discovered your website today! And I appreciate all of your unique and creative recipes!!

    I am sharing my favorite summer salad recipe which features ingredients normally discarded! The salad is topped with wild plum pit "nuts" which are found when you crack open the plum pits, and then toast them before eating. They taste like mini bitter almonds with the texture of a pine nut. And the salad dressing is made from white wine vinegar that I infused with cherry pits which impart a cherry blossom flavor to the vinegar.

    Thanks so much!

    1. Brilliant! I love it! Thanks for sharing, Andrea, and hope to see you again :)

  3. Hi Danielle, Just thought I would combine what locally fresh produce I find. I call this smart shopping! This is a very versatile Cucumber Pear Salsa designed to taste great with a few different ingredient options. Enjoy!


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