Add garlic and cooked cooled chickpeas to a food processor (you can mash by hand but the processor is so much easier)

Garlic first

IS THAT REALLY THE ANSWER FOR ALL OF US?

Most medicines are combined with glycerine.  As you know Glycerin is an animal bi-product.  My Veggie kids don’t eat Glycerin.

So I have found an alternative.

NO GLYCERINE!

“FEVER REDUCER/PAIN RELIEVER”…

CHEWABLE TABLETS

Faker!

Anyone out there have any fun remedies?
