Tips and Review:

If a fresh clove of garlic is not on hand, minced garlic can be used instead. To avoid putting too much minced garlic in, find a measurement that is equivalent to one clove. The hummus tastes fresh and the pumpkin flavor makes it unique and enjoyably and naturally sweeter than regular hummus.

As a firm believer that  half of the taste is in the presentation, the pretty orange color of the hummus is a welcoming sight to behold.

I made the mistake of freezing the hummus when the family could not finish it. While freezing is a possible option for your leftover hummus, the condensation tends to water down the hummus.  For this reason, I do not recommend freezing.

This appetizer tastes great along with pretzels or fresh baked pita bread. I especially enjoyed choosing my own seasoning for the baked pita bread, and eating it warm and fresh out of the oven.

Yummy hummus

Enjoy your yummy hummus.

Travel Animal Doctor Update:

During this break from blogging, I have been learning and growing immensely in spirit and mind.

Expanding and growing this online platform is a continued goal in order to share my blessings with the world.

Many personal family members and friends are coming down with or have been diagnosed with chronic ailments such as cancer, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Since the end-stage of these diseases are not comfortable even with the use of conventional medicine, a growing interest of mine is the use of alternative medicine and therapies.

There are many different alternative therapy modalities that can be used on both animals and people. These modalities can help to heal an individual emotionally, mentally and physically. Incorporating these therapies can help with peace of mind, ease pain, and can even cure ailments.

Many survivors have credited alternative therapy modalities for their cures when conventional medicine was no longer a viable option.

These magnificent results have opened my mind, and have encouraged me to learn more about these alternative therapies.

New Year’s Resolution:

Since the subject of alternative medicine and therapy is becoming very near and dear to my heart, this information will be shared in my blog this upcoming year. I am excited for this new year and all of the blessings that are in store. I look forward to sharing my vision of health and wellness for people and animals with Travel Animal Doctor readers.

May your God bless you and your family and give you all the goodness in the world. You are special and deserving of your God’s love.

With peace and love,
The Travel Animal Doctor Pack
