Eid Mubarak to the Ummah of Muhammad.  May Allah the most high accept our fasting, night prayers and all other worship done for His sake alone.

Recently my husband has been getting gifts of eggs from a coworker who has chickens and ducks on her land.  She does not farm, just keeps the birds for personal consumption.  My husband and I both enjoy farm fresh eggs and are happy to take the extra off her hands.  My husband also really enjoys duck eggs so we get those as well because her family does not eat them.

I have been making an effort to juice more regularly again.  The problem I ran in to was making my juices way to complicated.  I thought I need to have a specific recipe and lots of greens and herbs in order for it to be a “good” juice.  I was watching a video of my favorite raw food youtuber and Dan the Lifer regenerator was like, keep it simple and juice apples, cucumbers, and carrots.  It hit me that I often have a couple of things in my refrigerator.  So the other day I had a great juice of cucumber, carrot, ginger, and apples.  Another juice I made was apples, oranges, ginger, and carrots. 

Keep it simple and get your juice on!

The Strangers

My husband recently came across a new youtube channel that I thought I’d share. It is a news program for Muslims by Muslims. It is presented by an English-speaking brother out of Saudi Arabia and the program is broadcast in English with Arabic subtitles. The Channel is named Atheer Channel and the News program is titled, “The Strangers.”

I’m always trying to improve my diet and eating habits in an effort to get to a healthy weight and maintain it. I have had my ups and downs and I’ll try most things. While I enjoy eating a raw diet it does not necessarily work for my husband fulltime and I found that I liked cooked foods too much to give them up completely forever. So, I’ve switched to high raw and now a focus on “clean eating.”

I’ve been checking out some youtube channels focused on clean eating and found some great recipes. I tried a healthy version of taco salad last week and it was a big hit with my husband. I never would have thought on my own to add black olives to my taco salad, but after trying it I don’t think I’ll do without it. It gives such a nice unexpected flavor.

This weekend my husband and I reaped the benefits of shopping around.  I had recently read an article about Bed Bath & Beyond having cheaper prices than for many items with the use of the 20% coupon that gets mailed out.  I mentioned it to my husband because we were in the market for a space heater.  Always looking for a good deal, my husband did a price comparison of space heaters at WalMart, Amazon and Bed, Bath & Beyond.  We found that the cheapest price for the same exact Lasko 5521 heater was found at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  If you hold on to those coupons that BB&B mails out you can really get bargains on lots of household items. 


The space heater priced at all 3 stores~~~~~~~


Bed, Bath & Beyond  ~~~~  49.99 plus 20% off with coupon.  ~~~ 54.99  plus free shipping


WalMart  ~~~  59.98


WalMart markets itself as the low-price leader.  I think that at one point you used to be able to reliably go to WalMart and know you were getting the lowest price.  With all the competition I don’t find that to be the case.  I’ve long since stopped shopping at WalMart on a regular basis.  I just prefer to shop other places and I do a lot more shopping online. 

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
