Is it Possible to Reverse Diabetes without Prescription Medication?

lettuce or greens

I’m a huge fan of learning as much as possible about doing things naturally. Some would say that it’s simply not possibly to reverse serious illness or regenerate health or even our global ecosystem by natural {and healthy} means. I truly believe that if we seek, we shall find and that goes for all of the above situations. It’s been ... Read More »

Cholay: Indian Spiced Chickpea Curry

Spicy Indian dishes are a real treat to me. It’s food I crave, but don’t always make for myself. I don’t even seek out too many Indian restaurants (although I would love to). Instead, I learned most of what I know about Indian food from friends- in their kitchens, snooping around pots of curry, pans of biryani and asking a ... Read More »

Softened Red Potatoes & Parsley

My mom used to make these potatoes often when I was growing up. I’m not quite sure where she got the recipe, but she used to read a lot of cookbooks and magazines to get ideas, and when a dish worked (i.e we all liked it), she kept making it. Read More »

Grilled Eggplant and Pepper Salad

Summer food is equivalent to grilling, right? Well, in the intense heat we’re feeling here in the Midwest I’m not sure everyone is so excited about firing up the grills all the time. I mean, it’s really hot- even in the evenings I’ve seen temps at 98° F. That said, with all the amazing summer produce to be found at ... Read More »

Quick Kidney Beans with Tomatoes, Onions and Cilantro

Quick Kidney Beans in Tomatoes | My Halal Kitchen

It’s true, I travel with food. It’s not because I’m a food blogger, a halal foodie or averse to outside food. It’s because I like to feel good and comfortable by eating what I know is healthy, especially when I have the time to relax and cook (yes, cooking is relaxing to me).   Quick Kidney Beans with Tomatoes, Onions ...

French Beans with Garlic, Cumin and Toasted Sesame

Green Beans and Toasted Sesame

French green beans are one of my favorite side dishes. They’re light, go well with most foods and make me feel content that I’m getting a healthy vegetable on my plate. I usually make them Italian style with garlic, tomatoes and olive oil, but this time I opted to satisfy my craving for something Asian. I had some lovely fresh ... Read More »

Some people around the country still have a nice harvest coming in; others around the globe are actually experiencing a completely opposite seasons than us. In theory, I suppose someone around the world at any ... Read More »
