Salam & Peace,
We have been invited by the University of Toronto to speak on ‘Food & Religion’, a very interesting topic that is part of their ‘Religion in the public sphere’ series. Our main topic will be ‘restoring sacredness’, a topic that really is the heart of it all. When we realize what sacred beings we are, our miraculous beginning, and our most noble spiritual destiny, we’ll see ourselves, our food, our environment and all other inhabitants of the cosmos in a different light….
If you happen to be in Toronto, or know someone who will be, try and swing by if you can.
This is such an important topic, as we belive a spiritual based approach to food is very profound, yet not regularly discussed. We pray we can share something of value.
Spread the word!

If you eat you should watch this, otherwise its not really that important or interesting. Food Inc exposes the factory farm model of modern agri-business in all its glorious issues. From GMO (you are a guinea pig in biggest experiment in human history), to factory farms, animal welfare to workers rights…Its all a bit overwhelming, really.
But ignorance is NOT bliss, when it comes to what we are eating. It wont go away till we make more informed decisions on what we eat. As many have stated, we vote for what type of agricultural system we support every time we lift a fork to our mouths. Yes eating is a nutritional act, but is is also an economic, and political one as well. What we buy to eat determines our health, the health of our enviornment, our political policies, and drives the economy as well.
And of course, since your at GZ, you know our view. Eating is also a spiritual act, because there is no more intimate way we interact with our world than food. And what we eat affects our spiritual progression towards the Divine.
So watch it already!
***for Thanksgiving 2011, you can order turkeys from here http://www.greenzabiha.com/market/index.php/free-range-gmo-free-turkey.html****
****2010 Thank you for all the orders! Turkeys have been sold out!*****
Mmmm….Few things bring a family together like a turkey dinner. The stuffing, basting, aroma and plenty of tender flavorful meat seems to transcend the meal into a memorable bonding experience everyone loves!
It’s even more enjoyable when you know the story of your turkey…Our turkeys are raised on open green pastures on certified organic farms. They run around chasing bugs, eating grass, breathing fresh clean air and are served vegetarian, GMO free, and certified organic feed. We believe giving them natural foods and treating them with dignity makes for healthier happier birds, and better tasting meat as well.
You’ll be comforted as you sit to carve the turkey to know they weren’t cooped up by the thousands barely able to move, with feed that may have included all sorts of unhealthy stuff.
We do not package the turkeys with any preservatives, solution etc., up to 10% of the weight of conventional turkeys can be such agents, so you get lets meat for your buck.
They are hand-harvested, one by one, in a zabiha halal manner, with a care, consciousness and thankfulness we believe is a part of halal principles.
You will receive them the week of or week before Thanksgiving, the exact date to be determined based upon the number of orders. There is a limited quantity, and the last day to order is November 11th!! We’ll contact you about shipping.
