Waste Not Want Not Wednesday #82

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? 

Hi all, it's been a very busy week what with apartment hunting and our friends' wedding. I'm writing this in a rush because we're now busy packing and prep'ing to return to Wisconsin in order to pack up our apartment there and drive cross country back to BC again! So please forgive me for not having the time to visit you all and choose next week's features. Hopefully next week I'll have a bit more free time to stop by your fabulous posts.  

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.

* 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 permission for me to share your photos on this blog, as well as 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 automatically 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 have nothing to share, so it's up to you to keep the party going!
* Please note that posts without a link back will not be eligible for features or sharing on my social media and may be respectfully removed.

  1. Hi Danielle! Packing is always stressful! I hope your trip and move back to BC goes well!
    Because berries are in season here in Ontario, this week I'm sharing Berrylicious Pancakes.
    I hope everything turns out just as you'd like it!

  2. Good Morning! Thanks for continuing to host a great hop! This week I shared a post called "10 Easy Ways To Be Healthier". Have a wonderful week!

  3. Hi Danielle,
    When I’m hungry for something satisfying, hearty, healthy yet quick and easy to make, I raid my kitchen for interesting leftovers and fresh ingredients and “voila!” magic usually happens in the form of a taste-bud-tingling-super-salad, so today I shared "Sweet Potato Kale Quinoa Salad with Creamy Coconut Curry Dressing".

  4. Hi Danielle. Thanks for hosting another lovely link-up! This week I'm sharing my Paleo, Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Black Cherry Tart. All the best with the move by the way! I know it must be stressful, but I also find road trips and big changes a lot of fun :)


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