Awesome Dill Pickle Hummus

Awesome Dill Pickle Hummus

Do you love dill pickles?  I do!  Do you love hummus?  I do!  Does the idea of the two together make you want to do a happy dance?  No??!!  Well, that’s because you haven’t tried dill pickle hummus yet — trust me — once you do, you’ll be hooked!

Hey, err’body!  It’s been a while since I posted something edible.  Apologies.  My life is crazy right now.  As I stated in Monday’s post, I’ve been trying to back off on how much time I spend on the computer AND social media.  This is also pretty hilarious  — for those of you who know me personally — because I am TERRIBLE at social media and do not even have personal Facebook or Twitter accounts.  For the month of June, one of my many goals was to do a technology detox and start being more present.  Well, I am happy to report, that I have been doing practicing the art of being present, but kind of missed blogging, so I had to get over myself and get back at it.

“dill”icious – are you done with my punny quips yet?

I also had my final exam for my Nutritional Therapist certification this week — so I was busy plugging away at studying — as well as also getting SO entirely enthralled in my studies.  (I will do a full review on the Health Sciences Academy after I complete my certification!)  I should note that chickpeas — the basis for the greatness in my hummus — are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals essential for good eye, immunity, blood, and heart health!

It’s been excellent learning so much about the connection between wellness and the foods we eat.  As a nutritional therapist, I will be able to help educate people about the connection between their current diet and health conditions they may be suffering with. I’ve already helped Luke almost completely clear up his eczema — which has been plaguing him for years — in a matter of days.  Just by assessing which essential nutrients he was deficient in and choosing foods which have reintroduced them into his daily diet!

It’s so wonderful to continue to learn what we’re passionate about and to keep the information coming in.  I always despised school (even most of college), but now that I am so interested and excited about things, I feel like if I won the lottery, the first thing I’d do is go back to school full-time!  Life is crazy, right?

Seriously, if you love dill pickles and hummus, then this is the snack for you!

    I can’t recall the brand but I love the hummus that has the bits of roasted garlic pooled at the top. I pretty much eat the garlic with a spoon. Honestly, I don’t buy a lot of hummus just because it’s hard to cram enough food in the fridge to feed 8 people and only two people out of that 8 really like it, but I do buy it as a treat from time to time. I LOVE pickles though. Not the sweet round ones–the big long dill pickles are bomb.

      Sounds like Sabra hummus, maybe? I loved that brand back at home. I’ve been making my own because it is so pricey here! If you love dill pickles you will love this recipe. I started out making a different recipe but then discovered it was perfect as it was AND tasted like pickles!! #foodcrack 🙂

        Yes, that’s the brand. Okay, I’ll make it. Erin, you’re just too convincing. Damn you.

          Every now and then I have a good idea or two 😉

    Well this surely fuels up my obsession for vinegar! I have been having vinegar in all my meals…like a lot! 😉 I buy one that has some lemon infusion and it is stealing all my money! I am the same with school, I used to study because I had to and now I want to. I would love to hear your review on your experience with the Health Sciences Academy, it is up in my list!

      I love vinegar too! I am probably going to stick with making my own hummus — it’s so much more cost effective (and you get to be creative)!

      I definitely will be reviewing my experience with the Health Sciences Academy. I really enjoyed the program, and I think anybody looking to learn the true connection between nutrition and our health will get a lot from it!

      Thanks for reading, Elsie! 🙂

      Oh no haha! — I was trying to make something different, and then midway through decided that it would be “awesome” as dill pickle hummus. It would probably be just as good with just the onion and garlic (and slightly less vinegar)!

    I love the idea of this combination in a hummus Erin, thanks! Pinned! If our weather continues like this, I can see myself and Lynne sitting in the back garden enjoying this with a nice cold glass of pinot grigot! 🙂

    I’m really looking forward to hearing all about your Nutritional Therapist course too. I know exactly how you feel, when after being forced to study stuff at school you’re not interested in, you finally find the stuff you are interested in! And you get enthralled and totally immersed in it! I’ve already signed up for another evening class at Glasgow College to do SEO from September, only having just finished Web Design and Web Authorship (and I moan about not having enough time in blogging – I know!! But so much stuff interests me nowadays!! 😆 )

      That’s awesome about the SEO course, Neil. I just signed up for a digital marketing course that starts next month, and it covers SEO too (exciting)! I never could have imagined how much I would love learning lol! I was seriously the worst student, even through university!
      You should definitely make this hummus. Luke and I have gone through an obscene amount of it the past few days! 🙂

    I love dill. Adding it to hummus is brilliant. So full of flavor!

    Have a wonderful weekend Erin!
