Why Organic?

Picture healthy, happy, fat cows munching and grazing away on thick, green grass on a quaint farm under the bright sun. Imagine farmers in cute denim overalls squeezing the cow’s udders and churning creamy milk for their customers to guzzle on. Then take this image and throw it in the bin along with any hopes of Santa Claus being real. This is because ALL the packaged milk available at your local store has been extracted from cows that have probably spent as much time eating grass as you have.   As shocking as this fact may be, it has been corroborated by research conducted by Newcastle University in the UK, where it was shown that normal store-bought milk is loaded with artificial chemicals, preservatives (in order to enhance shelf life), colors and dyes (in order to give it that perfect white color),

If you’re like us and simply can’t resist that yellow ladoo, peaking out from amongst the gulaab jamans and barfis, but keep fretting about the extra calories and cholesterol – then fret no more! Take that extra bite (or two, we won’t tell) because it is a scientifically proven fact that desi ghee and mustard oil are far better for consumption than other traditional oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil etc.   As much as we love our coconut oil, it is crucial to understand the importance of making the switch to traditional ghee (and by traditional, we aren’t referring to the one commercially available in markets) and mustard oil. Most of the ghee and mustard oil being sold in markets these days is heated milk fat and hydrogenated vegetable oil. What this means, for you and I, is that it’s

Let’s cut the small talk and get straight to main point (yes, it’s that important): table salt is a freak of nature, and is basically comprised of bleached particles that are stripped of their minerals. Grossed out? It gets worse. Most of the table salt that sits seemingly innocent on your dining table is tainted with pollutants. The same is the case with sea salts, which contain a lot of environmental toxins due to the increasing pollutants and waste being dumped into our oceans.   Himalayan salt has not been adulterated or tainted by toxins or pollutants, nor is it bleached or stripped from its minerals. This is why it contains almost 84 trace minerals because the process of mining it protects it from modern environmental pollutants. When the salt is mixed with water, it releases a unique ionic energy that is

Summers in Pakistan are not just the season for high electricity bills, lazy halwa-puri laden breakfasts and long nights spend catching up on the latest dramas. They are also a season that marks the herald of an endless parade of colorful and delicious summer fruits. These bright, sweet bundles are jam-packed with more vitamins and minerals than you can count on your fingertips! So, before you get bored reading this, thinking of it as just another article echoing the lectures your mama gave you about eating fruits and ditching that ladoo, think again. Instead of droning on and on (yes, we get bored too) about an endless list of chemicals and nutrients that these fruits contain, and how they will jazz up your bodily functions in no time, we have decided to pen an article that breaks down the benefits

Qadoo ki bhujia, tori ji bhujia, aloo ki bhujia, louki ki bhujia – the list is never ending! A typical Pakistani household gets its fair share of bhujias throughout the week, and the very name sends kids running in the other direction. Though the typical bhujia is a quintessential Pakistani dish, we believe that it’s time to shake things up a bit. Pakistan is blessed with one of the most assorted varieties of vegetables, especially during the summers. However, we end up losing a lot of the vegetable’s flavor and nutrients by cooking it to a pulp, such as in a bhujia, and masking its flavor with an endless barrage of spices. Instead, why not try out different recipes that keep the vegetable in tact and retain their nutrients and vitamins? Keep reading our blogs for different ways to cook Pakistani

The one word that seems to be synonymous with organic foods is ‘expensive’. Most people skip through the fresh fruits and vegetables, or GMO-free line at the grocery store, and opt instead for ready-to-cook lasagnas, frozen nuggets, just-add-water mashed potato mixtures, cereals etc. Whilst packaged in deceivingly tempting cartons and luring colors, these processed goods are another way of poisoning your body and incapacitating its ability to fight disease and stay fit.
