Yummy Halal Toxic Treats

BismIllah wa as salaamu alaikum.

Here's a thought that has come to me. People have become acculturated into thinking that food that is harmful for your health, or junk, is a treat. How on earth is it a treat to eat something bad for you? Can one really be so controlled by their desires that they cannot find something healthy and wholesome that is equally or even more delicious?

What I bake is whole grain, naturally sweetened, halal, and healthy maashaa Allah.... and people love it! So why on earth would they think a packaged, toxic little cake is a treat? Wouldn't a treat be a pound of organic strawberries that cost $5, or some smoked salmon to go on the fresh baked bread, or some freshly homemade organic ice cream? Wouldn't it be a treat to make your own organic, whole wheat ginger snaps, biscotti, bagels, or raspberry shortbread? All of them would be delicious, fresh, buttery, melt in your mouth good ...and all GOOD, insha'Allah!

Give it some thought, and insha'Allah the next time you want to have a treat, get something that really is a treat...delicious and good for you!
