Healthy Indian Food Cooking Class – Hands-on Training,Toronto, ON , Canada

Description

Aromatic spices used in Indian cooking are truly natures most powerful bounty with an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants packed in them. Spices have so many beneficial healing properties from combatting inflammation and fighting cancer cells to increasing your metabolism and helping you lose weight.

In this cooking workshop, we will discuss some key cooking techniques used in making Indian food and go over a variety of spices used in the creation of the recipes.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS CLASS?

This class is beneficial for anyone interested in learning how to make healthy Indian recipes that don’t use vegetable oils/dairy/gluten to achieve a desired flavor. It is also perfect for those of you who currently battling an autoimmune disease such as, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Rheumatoid Arthritis or Celiac disease since we eliminate the most common allergens.

WHO SHOULD NOT ATTEND THIS CLASS?

This class is not for novice cooks as it requires the handling of a paring knife and a chef knife. You must be comfortable using your knife, a peeler, and other equipment such as pots/pans for cooking with hot items.

WHY THIS CLASS?

There are lots of cooking classes out there, but with the class sizes being so large, you are never given the attention you need to learn proper cooking techniques. This class will be led by a Culinary Nutrition Expert who has been through her own challenges managing her various health issues and our class size will be limited to 3 – 4 people to ensure that you learn what you hope to in our 3 hours together.

You will each be given one recipe to create and you will also be provided with helpful assistance as needed.

Below are the dishes we will be making:
– Chana Masala: A delicious vegan chickpeas gravy dish made with a homemade aromatic Chana Masala Spice Blend
 Gobhi Aloo: Cauliflowers and Potatoes made with the potent anti-inflammatory spice, turmeric, that has been used in Indian traditions for centuries!
– Chicken Tikka Curry: Gluten-free, Dairy-free and 100% Organic Chicken in a delicious sauce with bell peppers and onions
– Other sides that will be provided: Jeera Rice, Indian Pickle & Indian Salad

At the end of the class, we will all sit down to a family style 100% organic, gluten-free and dairy-free meal complete with healthy sides!

Please note that attendees are not permitted to take food home from the classes and will be asked to sign a waiver for participating.

“Brothers should help each other”: Islamic charitable organizations and “ph…,Toronto Canada

Description

Currently, an important dimension of most global governance and development approaches is to bolster the role and participation of “civil society” institutions. Likewise, supporting the potential contribution of religious charitable organizations is increasingly part of global and national development and humanitarian assistance agendas (Hurd 2012). But what kind of actions religious charitable organizations are expected to undertake, and how do particular political and legal configurations shape their capacity to act? Based on the humanitarian responses of Islamic charitable organizations to violent riots against Muslims in Muzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh, India), this presentation examines how secular governance influences the form and direction of contemporary Islamic charity in north India. I demonstrate how some Islamic charitable organizations resort to a form of “philanthro-nationalism” (Widger 2015) as a mode of legitimate social and political action. This strategy highlights the paradoxes characterizing the regulation of religion in secular states and their implications for the recipients of humanitarian assistance.

7th One Love Gala and Awards: Rehab, Toronto, ON Canada

One Love Gala 2019: Rehab

The Gala was founded seven years ago when Chaplaincy in Canada was under serious threat. I was sitting, distraught when I heard Bob Marley’s One Love playing. In that moment the idea crystallized of an event to both celebrate our work with those incarcerated and advocate for the continuation of this crucial service.

The Chaplaincy community embraced the idea and the One Love Gala was born!

The One Love Gala serves as a keystone for the Chaplaincy community to collaborate and go beyond simply advocating for the continuation of the crucial services in Canadian Prisons to one that celebrates Chaplaincy and its ability to rehabilitate incarcerated individuals.

We can only learn to love if we are prepared to forgive and be forgiven.

This year’s theme is the Rehab!

It will be an evening of speeches from chaplains and ex-inmates, award presentations, testimonies from Interfaith Chaplains and political leaders, an exquisite dinner, live entertainment, and a silent auction. Our Keynote address is an award winning Chaplain from USA Tahera Ahmed- this is an event you do not want to miss.
