Four Great Products to Try in 2013 | My Halal Kitchen

Four Great Products to Try in 2013 + a Giveaway [CLOSED]

One of the best things about my job and what most chefs would probably agree on is that we get to try an amazing array of foods and products as part of our work. I’ve been fortunate enough to come across products simply by visiting restaurants and grocery stores or by connecting with purveyors of quality products who are eager to introduce something to you through this site.  Here’s a list of four products I think you’ll enjoy trying because I’ve found them to be beneficial to use.  There’s also a giveaway at the end!

Coco5 All Natural Coconut Water DrinkCoco5 is an all natural coconut water product I tried last year towards the end of Ramadan. It was great to use during non-fasting hours to stay hydrated naturally- and with so many wonderful flavors, each one tasted great. They’re halal-certified and made with all natural flavors, colors, and sugars. Very important to me, as I’m NOT interested in hydrating drinks with ingredients that are questionable to our health. What’s even better is that the company shared a halal certification with me that you can see here. So, stock up to have during this year’s Ramadan and for your Monday and Thursday fasts if you do those, too. To find Coco5 products, check out their site.

Culinary & Cosmetic Uses of Argan Oil | My Halal Kitchen

Culinary and Cosmetic Uses of Argan Oil

Have you ever tried argan oil?  It is some really amazing stuff that is great for cooking as well as making yourself beautiful on a budget…not that you need any more beautifying, of course.  In the past year I’ve been using it in my cooking and even more so on my sensitive skin (the cosmetic grade) in a massive effort to ward off wrinkles and dry skin and everything else that will help me look younger than I am. Am I the only woman who does that?  Actually, I’m also just really averse to using expensive cosmetics with fragrance or chemicals that I don’t feel comfortable putting on my face.  

Enough from me- read on as Dana of Arganic and Joél of Saadia Organics– two women intricately involved in the production of one of nature’s finest oils ever discovered. I’ll let them tell you more about this amazing oil squeezed out of a fruit in Morocco…

My Favorite Products for Nurturing Winter Skin

Dry winter skin is the worst and after living much of my life in cold climates, I would think that it would be pretty easy to find products that help- I mean, really help to moisturize and nurture my super-sensitive skin. Add on to the fact that I’m always on the lookout for products that don’t contain animal ingredients, chemicals, synthetics or any harsh substances and the list of things I can or want to use really dwindles.

This winter I’ve been fortunate enough to learn about a couple of products that are incredibly helpful- one was right under my nose the whole time. Check them out and be sure to share some of your favorites, too, by commenting.
