How To Make the Healthiest Super Greens Pesto Sauce

How To Make the Healthiest Super Greens Pesto Sauce

By: Drew Canole

Pesto is life. Seriously. It tastes amazing on pasta, zucchini noodles, toasts, sandwiches and wraps. It even works as a dip or a topping on baked, sauteed and steamed vegetables.

One of the most powerful ingredients of pesto is basil. Basil is an anti-inflammatory herb full of antioxidants, capable of preventing cancer and diabetes, reducing pain, boosting the immune system, protecting the liver and reducing stress.

There is one problem with pesto though. Most pesto recipes include parmesan cheese, making it not feasible for those with dairy or casein allergies and sensitivities or for those who are vegan. Store-bought pesto may also include preservatives, artificial ingredients and additives that are damaging to your health.

It is so much better to make your own pesto and be in control of your health.
