Make Your Life Slightly More Delicious with Homemade Salad Dressing

posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

Modern life is about managing a delicate balance in so many things—cost and convenience, quality and time, effort and reward. But some things are just a clear win: that’s how I’ve come to feel about making my own salad dressing. I know, you’re thinking, “Salad dressing? Salad dressing of all things?” Yes, salad dressing. I […]

The Perfect, Toasty Winter Snack: Tamari Almonds

posted on Saturday, February 29th, 2020

Mid-winter brings a welcome introspective energy. I’ve been lucky to take part in yoga teacher training, which means my weekends are immersed in quiet reflection, movement, learning, and building community. Long days at the yoga studio are rich with learning and connection. But guess what: even yogis get hangry! This is why it’s crucial to […]

My Life as a Karma Zero-waster: Glass Containers

posted on Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

As a zero-waster, glass containers are a must-have. I was surprised at how much I missed my containers upon moving to Toronto. In France, my journey as a zero-waster had been a long one, and I had built up my container stock steadily year after year so that it matched my needs one step at […]

“The Right Direction”: How the new mural came to be

posted on Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

By now you’re probably noticed the mural outside the store. If you don’t know how it happened to get there, you may have questions. Fortunately, Karma general manager Talia McGuire has answers. It came about in an unlikely way—with some luck, some good timing, and some hard work, according to Talia. “This is how a […]

Report from the Social Events Committee: Slow cooker

posted on Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

As Newfoundland was digging out from Snowmageddon on January 18, Toronto caught the tail end of that storm and ended up with a record snowfall for that date (up to 20 cm). What better day to have a SEC (Social Events Committee) slow cooker hot soup event at Karma? As members came in through the […]

posted on Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

Happy February! The days are getting longer and brighter which means, soon, we will start seeing local greens and start reconnecting with many of our local farmers.  Over the past couple of months, members of the board and I have been working hard! We’ve been busy building a robust health and safety policy, starting new […]

Understanding the Non-GMO Logos on your Food Products

posted on Thursday, January 9th, 2020

Food logo labeling is becoming increasingly common on packaged and prepared food products. While prominent in the “healthy food” industry, it is less common on conventional food products, excluding those labelled kosher/halal and non-gluten. Logos reflect the interests and concerns of the targeted consumers of products and provide information about a product beyond just basic […]
