From the GM—July 2018

posted on Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Dear Karma Members, July is plastic-free month, and what better way to celebrate the month than with our new bulk bins! Buying in bulk saves on packaging, limits the consumption of food additives, is cheaper, and encourages reuse. Karma offers a few options to limit plastic consumption: you can bring your own container to fill; […]


What is the most nutritious food?

posted on Friday, July 6th, 2018

Which has more nutritional value? Cauliflower or basil? Perch or chia seeds? Almonds or kale? Researchers in South Korea used data-driven analysis to quantify the “nutritional fitness” of about 1,000 raw foods (including frozen and dried foods). Can you guess which one comes out on top? The answer is almonds! They have a nutritional fitness […]


Report from the board—June 2018

posted on Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Happy spring! Or is it summer? All of the lovely weather has brought many of us out and about and ushers in a flurry of activities as we relish warm, sunshine-filled days. Your Karma Board of Directors is no exception. We recently welcomed three new board members, Kat Biondi, Julie McKernan, and Rebecca Waterhouse into […]


Almond milk and bee health

posted on Thursday, June 7th, 2018

A Karma member recently approached the Food Issues Committee with a concern about the connection between the almond milk industry and bee decline.

Nutritional yeast

posted on Friday, May 4th, 2018

What bulk item at Karma do you think triggers the most questions of James Byrne, Karma’s bulk, meat, and cheese purchaser? I’ll give you a hint: Read the title of this article. Members are more curious about those bright yellow nutritional yeast flakes than any of the other bins and tubs of bulk products. First […]

posted on Friday, May 4th, 2018

Dear Karma Members, It’s official. Spring has sprung! The local greens have started to make their way through our doors, and we’re looking forward to what’s to come.

From the GM—April 2018

posted on Thursday, April 5th, 2018

Dear Karma Members, Having just received the first delivery of the 2018 Ontario spinach and lettuce, we’re getting excited about what’s on the horizon for local food! March and April are some of the more difficult months for sourcing local food as the last of the storage crops get used up and we wait for […]


Ask Reece

posted on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Dear Reece, I noticed in your last column, you mentioned that exercise doesn’t affect weight. Really? Sincerely, Freely Admiring my Tubbyness Dear FAT, I could just say “yup” (Carneiro 2016)! But instead I’ll say that the more studies I read, the more I think we don’t know very much about weight gain, nutrition, exercise, and […]
