Saskatoon’s first conscious cafe opened on April 15th with much enthusiasm and community support. Inspiring community supported acts of doing good, the Karma Conscious Café & Eatery supports a charitable organization with 3% of its earnings over a three month period. Now, three months after opening, The Karma will be announcing its donation to the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre this evening at a special event at 6pm at the cafe. In addition, the next selected charity will be announced for the next three month period.

The driving principle behind the Karma is the importance of doing good deeds (karma). The
community
behind the Karma believe what goes around comes around. The owners and
employees bring this belief into The Karma everyday. Since they have an opportunity to nourish people, they want to take it a step further by giving back in form of charity and donations from everything they sell.

“From a young age our parents always mentioned importance of doing good deeds “
karma” and that is what we have tried to practice, and bring to the Karma everyday. Community driven businesses such as the Karma is a radical idea in Saskatoon, and we are here to champion this model”, says owner Vivek Patawari.

“We are very excited to see new models of businesses supporting the charities through
purchases and direct donation that bring people together to build community. We are fortunate to have been selected by the Karma Community as the first charity to partner in building community”, said Laurie O’Connor, Executive Director of the Saskatoon Food Bank.

Join us along with our community partners at our announcement tonight at 6pm at The Karma Cafe.

On the Menu

Khichdi

Khichdi is a staple of Ayurvedic diet, an ancient healing tradition of India. The basic ingredients of khichdi are rice and lentils.

 

Packed with nutrition

Khichdi is a wholesome meal that has the perfect balance of nutrients. The combination of rice, lentils and ghee provides you with carbohydrates, proteins, dietary fibre, Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. Many people also add vegetables to it enhance its nutritional value.

Easy to digest

Khichdi soothes the stomach and the intestines, making it the perfect meal for when you're sick, but also a good change from food that is loaded with spices. It is also a healthy option for babies and elderly people, since it is both soft and nutritious.

Tridoshic food Khichdi is a staple food of the Ayurvedic diet, as it has the ability to balance all the three doshas - Vatta, Pitta and Kapha, making it a tridoshic food. Apart from calming the body and detoxifying it, the ingredients in khichdi also have the perfect balance of the basic elements required to improve energy, immunity and digestion.

Gluten-free & Vegan

People who are avoiding gluten either out of choice or necessity can safely eat khichdi, since rice doesn't contain gluten.
