Simple Life Sunday #52 Featuring How To Make Homemade Hummus

Simple Life Sunday Blog Hop

Thanks so much for joining me for Simple Life Sunday.  Grab your cup of tea or coffee and sit down with me and join me while I look through all the wonderful posts everyone has shared! Before you leave be sure to share one of your favorite posts.

I have a post coming out later today, which recaps our unusual holiday.  We had such an amazing, relaxing holiday, but I spent it on my back and not well all the way into the new year.  God has a funny way of slowing us down.  Through this situation I am having to take on a whole new diet.  Now we are whole foods, gluten free, dairy free and I am even sugar free so I imagine you are wondering what I wll even be able to eat, right?  So was I, I have spent the last 4 days researching a low histamine diet…  There is really a lot of foods that I will be able to eat and one of which is chickpeas and hummus.  Heather, I have an AMAZING almond flour, flax meal, egg and seasoning recipe which can be sed for pizza dough, a flat bread and crackers…  I need the protein with our fast paced schedule out here…

I already have been enjoying them and I am so thankful I will not have to eliminate them from my diet.  🙂  I’d like to thank Heather from for sharing her How To Make HomeMade Hummus post.  Although it is close to mine, I enjoy variations and she pointed out something very important in her post regarding soaking and sprouting our nuts and beans.  By doing so, our bodies can digest them so much better and gain so much more nutrients from them.  Thanks lovely lady – blessings to you and yours!

I’d also like share ou good news…  I received a special birthday present this year (actually two), but the first was two baby goats that were birthed on our homestead!  The Mountain Boy cares for our animals as part of his chores and he is amazing with them.  We call him the animal whisperer because he whispers with them ALL!  He is very in tune with all of them and will notice if a feather is ou of place with our chickens and he has been evaluating both our pregnant goats and noticed on Friday afternoon that one was acting funny.

Sure enough she had started labor.  A couple of weeks back the men built a barn underneath the Mountain Boy’s stilted tree house which has provided them with a safe haven out of the elements.  The Mountain Man hung a propane Mr. heater from the rafters on low heat and we went inside to eat.  Upon returning we had two new babies.  It was so cool to see the expression on the Mountain Boy’s face, he was so excited and proud!  We will be posting about this more this week and providing pictures.

Oh and I am so excited, the Mountain Man made me an Ulu for my kitchen.  I will post about this too and share the pics of the antler handle and entirely handcrafted item.  So cool and so excited…

So despite some interesting events, exciting events and special events we are all well and beyond blessed!

Also here are some honorable mentions (the more new posts, the harder it is to just choose one…  🙂   )…

Christine and her Winter Vegetable Medley. (Yummmm)

Amy’s post, Do You Know The Secrets To The Good Life?  I am aways looking for good, inspiring new books and this one looks amazing!

  1. I’m excited to get started with this party. This week I’m sharing a recipe for a no-cook drizzle chocolate (perfect for molten-type single-serve cakes and such) as well as a recipe for making flavored mayonnaise, and also some helpful tips on how to make New Year’s GOALS and actually be able to keep them. 😉 Love the hop, thanks for hosting!
