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.

Pues, la semana se fue! The week just flew on by…

Amidst all the hectic stuff going on, I was able to participate in something really fun thing this week.  After receiving an email from Barbara Phipps, a Cleveland-based internet radio show host of The Recipe Box and a new segment called Food Blogger’s Roundtable, I became one of the foodies on the show who was challenged to put together a menu for a graduation party. We were intentionally put on the spot to see how we could think up recipe ideas on the fly. It was a lot of fun and left me hungry thinking about all the great menu ideas we came up with. To see what we developed, listen to the segment here.
