This week I have really felt the spring arrive! I knew immediately when I stepped outside and took a breath in. With that inhale I could taste the earth coming back to life. The sound of the birds singing melodies to one another and the scent of green that is springing up all around. It has been a feast for the senses that every year always brings me the same giddiness. I love it so much and try my best to savor every minute of it.
Spring is such a wonderful time, especially for herbalists because it means it's time to forage for wild medicinals! It is an empowering feeling to go outside and collect your own medicine and food. what's even better is that it's very easy as long as you know some important things.
Hummus is one of those foods that is always nice have around for snacking. Some fresh cut veggies with this protein packed dip is a wonderful way to fill an afternoon hunger spell without reaching for junk. I modified and improved this hummus recipe. It now has more of a fusion flare going on. The focus in the past was turmeric and garlic and I've now expanded it to more herbs and even better flavor. I hope you agree! My kids do....especially my 15 month old who eats it straight with a spoon!
