Restaurant Review: The Hummus House Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale

The Hummus House Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurant

Menu

I recently got a gift certificate for my birthday for this quaint restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. (900 NE 20th Ave., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304)

When my husband and I arrived, the first impasse was that there was no free parking. In my estimation I always have to factor in time and cost as I make my choice for a restaurant. I enjoy having a parking place within walking distance to the place, especially on a hot day. However, this was not the case.

…but in the end, I thought it was delicious!

The short jaunt was well worth it, though, as the atmosphere is adorable, truly—the furnishings and decor is really typical of the culture, which was traditional Israeli.

As you may notice by the look of this small restaurant below, there is no table service. I was a bit disappointed by that. I like to be served when I eat. I lose the sense of enjoyment, when I have to order and pay for my food up front before I ever taste it. This was my next point of contention. When my husband and I inquired about possible mistakes about veganism on the menu, we were met with a bit of confusion about what a Vegan actually is and what one would eat.

In my estimation, if you are going to open a vegan/vegetarian restaurant, you really need to know the culture of it and the parameters of each. For instance, they had baklava as a vegan dessert. Of course, I believed them, because I thought, why would they go to the trouble of specifying each item as vegan or vegetarian if they didn’t know the difference? Maybe they used agave instead of honey (I was hoping). However, as my husband and I have realized over the years, we must, must MUST ASK EVERY TIME!

This particular time, we were met with a sullen face, “A lot of vegans say it is okay to eat honey!” Of course, he was met with my quizzical glare.

“Okay,” I responded, “What else on the menu can we find that does not have eggs, honey, milk products of any kind, and that is also completely plant-based?” (The manager of the restaurant didn’t even know if the pita bread was vegan.)

Beyond all of this, I was overcharged, I was served the wrong dish, but in the end, I thought it was delicious! So, what do you say to this? The owner came out to do damage control, which was great and well-needed, as the manager decided to take a job interviewee while we were eating. I want this place to survive, but I would love for them to make the necessary changes to make this a great place, not just an “okay” place!

The owner was great, offered us a free lemonade drink that he made with special herbs. It was great, but had tons of sugar in it that gave me a buzz that I couldn’t shake till well into the morning hours. I had wished he had been honest about how much sugar he had added. He said, “Just a bit.” He could have easily used a sugar substitute, which again is part of not knowing the culture of vegans. We enjoy healthy food, not sugary-laced food that has white, refined sugar in it.

All in all, this gets a *** stars out of 5.

How Is Any Food Product Going to Affect Your Body?

In the past 2 weeks I have been dealing with my website being hacked. Literally, someone targeted this Vegan site to destroy it. I have spent hundreds of dollars to get it working again and to clean up the virus. I’m amazed that someone would feel that this small website would do harm to anyone. I can’t imagine who would want to target me, in particular; but, it happened nonetheless.

I wanted to let you know, because I assume that if someone is trying to shut you down, you are probably sharing information that is important. A whistleblower I am not, I don’t believe. However, I do want to get helpful information to the public about health and vegan lifestyles. If that scares factory farms and the other sites that promote anti-vegan health, than bring it on. My site is complete secure now.

Today’s blog is about listening to your inner wisdom and, also, a simple correction about my blog—two weeks ago—about #hexane in your soy products

I have been assured by multiple people that #hexane is used in soy products like any fuel is used to heat a product. #Hexane is never mixed into the product or used as an additive. The only risk of #hexane getting into the product is by the fumes, which is possible. However, I’m told that the amount that can seep into any soy protein products is so minimal that it is almost immeasurable. I have no actually scientific study to back-up this information, so take it with a grain of salt.

Albeit, we still should always stay aware of any faction that seeks to taint vegan products’ reputation that, first, to help packagers realize that we are watching and, second, because if we feel our body rejects the product by having digestion problems, we should stay clear of eating it.

It doesn’t matter to me what the packaging says on a product. If I eat it and feel poorly, I stop eating it. Not every body needs the same vitamins and minerals. This is why you must stay aware and clear-minded when it comes to your health and diet. No one can direct you to the perfect path.

As even Jesus says, “Physician, heal yourself!” Your senses and feelings are your own physician, you must always pay attention to what you feel, when you’re feeling it.

Often I’ll go to the store and put a beautiful vegetable near my stomach. If my body draws closer to the vegetable, I assume that the answer is that I need the vitamins and minerals from it. If my body moves away from it, I don’t buy it, even if it is fresh and looks perfect. Every day, every moment, we need certain elements in our body to help it function better. That’s what hunger and intuition is for. If you don’t clear your mind of negative sugars, salts, fatty foods and dense proteins, you will never have a clear enough perspective to see what is good and right for you. The process I describe above is called kinesiology. 

Remember, for instance, if you are addicted to sugar, you will crave it because theyeast inside your bodyacts as a hunger trigger. So, negatives can mimic positive things. So, clearing your body and mind of things that are proven to cause diabetes, heart disease, and organ problems is the first way to get yourself ready to listen to the innate function of the inner physician that lives in all of us.

Why Are We Here on Earth—Part II

Here is where? On Earth

Who are we? We are spirit beings housed in human bodies, living a life (or multiple lives here) to move from a Ego-centric life form to a less distorted manifestation of love and light—polarizing toward the positive spiritually. This ultimately will result in moving to a higher life form that will be less dependent on Negative vs. Positive.

What would this next density look like? Many scriptures and holy writings, and now channeled manuscripts suggest that the billions of planets in all of the galaxies and universes hold places for people who have passed through the challenge of our current life density. These places have animals living in unison with the beings. These places have a common thread of intent in all peoples. These places don’t depend on hard work and labor to sustain lives that manifest more money or more power. These places are planets that manifest love and teach us the higher powers of love.

How do we move towards a more positive density or polarization? The action is simple—live a life that is less ego driven and more actively seeking to be more compassionate, loving, and driven by the needs of the Whole, rather than your own personal desires.

Does having wealth make you unlikely to become polarized to positive? I don’t believe it does, if you are certain that what you are storing here on this earth isn’t about being better or more superior to others. If you are not willing to use your money to help others and help the world become better, then you are generally polarizing toward the negative. This is why one of the master teachers, Jesus, said in Matthew 19:

22When the young man heard this, he went away in sorrow, because he had great wealth. 23Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is difficult for a rich man to enter thekingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”…

What is the best way to daily move toward a more positive polarization on Earth? Meditation, yoga, activities that would harm none and open your heart to receive the gifts of wisdom and truth from the angelic entities all around you. I, personally, believe that veganism is one of those channels; specifically, because it harms no animal to gain nutrition. When you choose bloodshed of an innocent creature, this is very hard to justify in the subconscious mind where all distortion (positive and negative) is held.

Any questions from this course can be placed in the comment section of this blog. Also, if you are looking for a book or books that can help you on this Metaphysical Spiritual path, my last two books could be a choice for you.
