Easy Lentil Walnut Dip

posted on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019

Summer may be winding down, but the days are still long, the sun has been gracing us with warmth well past sunset, and the neighbourhood is buzzing with activity, from park picnics to street festivals to spontaneous porch conversations. During this time of abundant energy, I find it’s nice to find quiet moments between activity […]

Butternut Squash and Shiitake Mushroom Soup

posted on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019

I learned to cook after I moved away from home. Because my dad stayed home when I was born so my mom could go back to work, he was the one who cooked in our household, and this was unusual in the 70s when I was born. Surprisingly, it seems to still not be that […]

Report from the board

posted on Wednesday, August 7th, 2019

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). In one video, Kristina takes a […]

A hearty salad to celebrate the mid-summer bounty

posted on Monday, August 5th, 2019

Summer’s later-than-usual return brought a bounty of colourful produce overflowing from our beloved fruit stands, farmers’ markets, and of course Karma! From brilliant red peppers to sunshiney yellow summer squash to deep violet eggplants, vegetables beg to be sliced, tossed with olive oil and a simple shake of salt and pepper, and eaten fresh from […]

Dear Karma Members, And just like that, it’s summer! Personally, I love the heat, and the local veggies and fruit are loving it too!

Getting to the Root of Hydroponic Farming: Vegetables Grown in Water?

posted on Friday, May 31st, 2019

Ever heard of growing food without soil? That’s hydroponics: a method of growing crops entirely in water, without the use of soil. It’s a closed system where all environmental elements are fully controlled to produce an optimal growing environment. Roots are fed nutrient-rich water in an indoor space such as a greenhouse or even a […]

Ask Reece

posted on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Dear Reece, Apparently, a lot of olive oil is adulterated. This is extremely alarming. Could you tell me if the bulk oil at Karma is guaranteed to be what it says it is? In this vein, I have regular lunches with a friend, where we take turns hosting. He prepares lovely meals, but often with […]

After over 6 years as Karma’s Member Records Secretary, Kirsten Heyerdahl will be leaving her post to move to Japan with her family. We’ll miss you so much […]
