Barbara’s Bakery has been all natural since 1971, when Barbara Jaffe opened a small natural bakery in Northern California.  She was only seventeen years old at that time!  Barbara’s products do not contain refined sugar, hydrogenated oils, artificial food additives, artificial flavors, or preservatives.  They only use natural ingredients.  Barbara’s makes four lines of cereals.  The Puffins Family all have an adorable cartoon Puffin on the boxes.  The newest flavor is Puffins Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Other varieties include Puffins Original, Puffin Puffs Crunchy Cocoa and more.  Gluten free varieties include the Puffins Multigrain (made from pure oats and brown rice), and the Puffins Honey Rice.  The Shredded Family of cereals include Shredded Oats in many different flavors.  Barbara’s High Fiber cereals come in High Fiber Original, High Fiber Cranberry, and High Fiber Flax and Granola.  There is also a line of Barbara’s Classics: Corn Flakes, Hole ‘n Oats: Honey Nut, Hole ‘n Oats Fruit Juice Sweetened, and Brown Rice Crisps (which are gluten free).  Barbara’s also makes snacks including Fig Bars, Snackimals (which resemble animal crackers), and four flavors of Cheese Puffs.

Whole grains are good for you because they are a good source of protein, fiber, and many vitamins and minerals that help keep you healthy.  Barbara’s uses expeller pressed oils that are mechanically extracted from the oil source without the use of petroleum based chemicals or solvents. This is more healthy than using oils that include petroleum based products.  Foods that are gluten free do not contain any wheat or other ingredients that have gluten in them.  This means they are safe for people who have celiac disease or a gluten allergy or intolerance to eat.  Barbara’s Bakery has a section on their website called “Special Dietary Needs”. This tool shows you which of their products are dairy free, gluten free, high fiber, and  more.  Barbara’s Bakery has its headquarters in Marlborough, Massachusetts.  Check out the Barbara’s website to see how you can get involved with Project Puffin, and help puffin colonies to flourish.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
