Start The Year Off Right! Say No to Unnatural Ingrediants and Eat Healthy in 2011

My regular readers know that 2010 was a challenging year for me medically. I have been sick since May 2010 and loads of months wasted until I finally demanded a particular test which started the ball rolling on my health upswing.

My issues which I will cover more thoroughly in another post have demanded that I totally change the way I eat. Digestion, fiber and how my body reacts to what I put into it are now what matters to my existence and my relationship with food.

Currently in my post-op state I am not allowed to eat fiber. I am on a low residue diet however, as soon as I get the go ahead, fiber will be extremely important in my diet.

When I received the Barbara Says No Box from Barbara's Bakery I was so excited.

Barbara’s says NO to:
  • Hydrogenated Oils
  • Artificial Flavors
  • Artificial Preservatives
  • Refined Sugar
  • Trans Fats
  • Artificial Additives
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
I cannot wait to dig into the High Fiber Cranberry cereal. My daughter loves it.
I was able to try the Baked White Cheese Puffs and they were delish. NO mess and I didn't feel guilty eating them knowing that they were baked. So worth it!
Both of my kids, devoured the bag of Snackimals. Talking about the animals and that they were chocolate chip. I loved that they loved them but loved more that there were no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, or trans fats.
Barbara is also helping one of my favorite birds the Puffin. BTW, the Puffin Cereal has been eaten by Goddess every morning since we got it. There is less than 1/2 a box left. 

By collecting box tops of UPC symbols from the Puffins or Wild Puffs cereal you can adopt and name your very own Puffin. Simply send the box tops back to:
Barbara's Bakery
Attn: Adopt-A-Puffin
3900 Cypress Drive, Petaluma, CA 94954.
With 250 box tops or UPC code flaps (found at the base of the box). Barbara will send your group a biography and picture of the Puffin you adopt about 45 days after receiving your box tops. Individuals can also participate by sending in box tops. We'll pool them until we have enough to adopt a puffin for the collective group. Through Audubon's program, we will adopt one puffin for one year.

Want to adopt a puffin today? You can donate $100 directly to Audubon's Project Puffin by visiting www.projectpuffin.org

Why a Puffin?

An employee fell in love with the Puffin which eventually led to the company becoming passionate fans of Project Puffin, the Audubon Society's efforts to restore puffins to their former habitat of Eastern Egg Rock off the rugged coast of Maine. Once plentiful on this rocky island, by 1973, when Audubon launched Project Puffin, the orange-footed swimming birds had all but disappeared.

Between 1973 and 1986, Audubon naturalists transported a small colony of young puffins from puffin-rich Newfoundland and reintroduced them to Eastern Egg Rock. The first puffin pairs began to return to Eastern Egg Rock in 1977. Today, more than 30 years later, puffins are flourishing, with 101 pairs nesting on the island.

Project Puffin celebrated its 35th anniversary during August 2009. Barbara's is proud to be the sponsor of Audubon's Project Puffin Cam. View real time video of puffins and their seabird neighbors at Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge.

I totally stand behind companies that work hard at making change in the world.

In my Barbara says No Box, there was also an adorable stuffed puffin. We love him.
