Corn, Mango and Chile Salad Cups

I don’t know about you, but my time in the kitchen just keeps on getting shorter and shorter and my patience level for long, drawn out dishes and cooking is sort of unmentionable these days.

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.

Saffron Road’s Example of Sustainable Business in the Halal Industry

In my quest to seek out ethically-sound businesses that also put out a quality halal product, I have come across a small handful I would recommend, mainly because the owners behind them are forthcoming about the origins of their ingredients and how they ensure what we’re buying is not mingled with any inhumane treatment of people, animal, or environment. Eco-halal, a term coined to include environmentally-friendly practices with a focus on maintaining halal, comes to mind here.
