ACID AKALI MOOD FOOD

ALKALI FOOD CHART A

The food we eat has a massive impact on how we think, we are ignorant to think otherwise, behavioral problems in children are connected to diet, children with autism are given nutritional therapy apart of their treatment. Wholefood and whole grains are full of natural vitamins and minerals that are vital for mental health.

Food is used to manipulate and control communities, farmers of foods that are bad for us are substidized by global governments because illnesses need cures and in communties with no spiritual etieqqueete regarding treatment for dis-ease, then pharmacuetical cures and operation are the quick solutions to problems that could easily be avoided like financially substidizing fruit and vegetables farmers for a change……for a change…for a change

 

 

RE-USE, REDUCE, RECYCLE…FRUIT AND VEGGIE PEELINGS

COMPOST

Alhamdulillah I live in trendy West London, very near Portobello, Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill.

This area has its carnival history and the impact of positive impact of Caribbean communities is seen everywhere.

What I don’t understand though, is a person who smokes marijuana thinking its cool, black and rootsie but don’t give a damn about the environment.

Or people who have more money than sense that waste so much when there are people in need…

Or people who are vegan or raw foodies who also don’t recycle kitchen waste

…to all you Lego heads, we live in an organic world, let’s keep it real not plastic, we are recycling kitchen waste of fruit and vegetable peeling, fruit and veggies that have started to go moldy, egg shells and ta bags, nothing cooked. We take this to our local community garden because we don’t have our own garden in London.

If you have a window ledge where you can open the windows without knocking anything off, then you can invest in a series of small lidded dustbins….or even just a plastic bag.

We keep the two smaller on the window ledge and the bigger one downstairs outside

Every week or two, we take the bins to our local community garden and deposit in the compost heaps they have.

It’s been great for community relations between Muslim and the wider community and its responsible health food cooking and caring for environment at the same time.

HALAL AND TAYYIB…WINTER DEC 14, 14 SCATTERBROOK FARM, ESSEX ENGLAND

 

Just  quick post about our recent winter trip to Scatterbrook farm to collect our free range unstunned chicken, slaughtered the truly halal way, we also wanted to introduce one of Karimah’s Cuisina all star volunteers to  the farm owners, as he is one of the few UK specialists in Permaculture, the holistic away to manage land, agriculture and husbandry.

Alhamdulillah for our SAT Nav and my powers of observation we got there pretty unscathed.

Scatterbrook Farm is the home of Zuss Halal, it’s a  family farm where the animals are raised with love and care which is important and affects the taste of the meat and milk produced.in the UK Organic meat is stunned first, this contradict Islamic law in that it may already be dead before its slaughtered.

Truly halaal and taiyib, that is correctly Islamically slaughtered, is not stunned and is classified in the UK as “free range”. This is where Zuss halal come in. to comply with UK regulations they have had to build a vets changing room and vets office adjacent to their abattoir and the vet has to supervise each slaughter;to make sure it’s not cruel.

There were my favorite baby goats to cuddle only a few weeks old. we  didn’t really get to spend much time with my  favorite guys,the mpaka, that are on the farm to keep foxes away.their high pitched scream is a deterrent the foxes , maasha’allah.

Surprisingly I was presented with a turkey crown which is a large turkey minus the legs. Inshallah we will endeavor to cook this and to share with the homeless Muslim brothers in our area.

All in all we had a super productive day; I taught my fashion protégé on the farm, how to make dress patterns for her dolly.

We had a great conversation about the  progress of Islamic farming as well as having some nice home cooked parata and dhall before embarking on our journey back to the urban metropolis that’s London’s fair city maashallah.

Should you wish to find out more about halal and tayyib meat which is in the UK halal and free range , please get in touch with the farm.Its a wonderful day out of London, to take a picnic and the family.

The Clean 15 – Safest Foods To Buy Anywhere

Recently a good friend of mine told me about the Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen like it was something she thought I already knew, I felt bad that I didn’t.However the Creator is bountiful. I was searching my files to post a smoothie recipe on Facebook and came across this asparagus  recipe remedy of mine called Asparagus Menopause Smoothie, but you guessed it, that’s another post. Researching further the health benefits of “asparagus” I was happy to find out that it is part of the Clean 15 ! Identified by the Enviromental Working Group as one of the safer foods you can buy anywhere.Once again I am saving this image in my phone so I know what’s OK to buy whenever I’m out and about.

By sharing positive information we can help each other happily and healthly  through this new millenium insha’allah.
