Greetings Karma Owners! It was exactly a year ago this month that I first discovered a hidden gem, our amazing little food store.  I came to Karma initially, after watching videos by YouTuber, Fully Raw Kristina, on my quest to test out a raw vegan diet (diet result, #fail).

Alert on glyphosate

posted on Thursday, March 7th, 2019

Foods made with genetically modified organisms (GMO) are certainly the first ones to eliminate from one’s diet in order to keep away from toxic residues. Indeed, these crops have been purposely modified genetically to withstand higher doses of herbicides and pesticides used by farmers in order to increase yield. However, the growing use of herbicides […]
