Muir Glen Organic was named after the legendary naturalist John Muir, and was founded in 1991.  Their growers use certified organic farming methods, and harvest their tomatoes at their peak of ripeness in late Summer.  Their tomatoes are packaged without synthetic chemical additives of any kind.  Muir Glen Organic makes diced tomatoes, fire roasted diced tomatoes, whole tomatoes and crushed tomatoes. Their pasta sauces comes in flavors like Cabernet Marinara, Chunky Tomato and Herb, Fire Roasted Tomato, Garden Vegetable, Garlic Roasted Garlic, Italian Herb, Portabello Mushroom, and Tomato Basil Pasta sauce.  They also make salsas, soups, tomato sauces, tomato pastes, tomato purees, and ketchup.  You can purchase Muir Glen products through their website.  Prices range from about $5.00 to around $9.00 for a 2 pack of products.

Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation.  Organic foods are GMO free.  Many people are interested in avoiding foods that contain synthetic chemical additives because they are not natural and are not part of a healthy diet.  The  Muir Glen farm is located in San Joaquin Valley, in California, in the heart of America’s prime tomato growing region.  General Mills is the parent company of Muir Glen.  The headquarters of General Mills is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  General Mills feels that food labeling regulations should be set at the national level, not on a state by state basis (like Proposition 37 in California).  Muir Glen wants you to know that the ingredients in their foods are GMO free and are USDA organic.

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.
