There’s a few foods that I realllly love, and one of them is pumpkin. It’s one of those versatile foods that you can cook it various ways, each tasting different. This recipe is a dessert, that is guilt-free, and could actually be served as a breakfast/brunch treat as well – being that it’s actually not THAT sweet (but totally hits the spot).
Not all that long ago I wasn’t conscious of what I consumed, and I didn’t exercise on a regular basis. With that being said, I wasn’t as bad as I could’ve been, however I was no where near where I should’ve, needed, or even wanted to be. In 8 months I turned that around, and took control of my body. With eating a generally clean diet, and regular exercise, I’ve come a long way. Now, there’s no stopping me.
Look out world 🙂
Who knew that pesto was so easy to make? I surely didn’t! Not only did it take under 5 minutes to make, but it’s also only FOUR ingredients.
3/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup dry pine nuts
1 bunch of basil
Juice from 1 lemon
Now put all of those goodies into your food processor, and puree until you get this consistency:
Voila! No need to buy store made pesto again!
I have to thank one of the lovely moms I work for, for sharing this recipe with me today. A real eye opener! If I’m capable (and it’s not super pricy) than I would much rather make it myself rather than purchase “store bought” any day! When you do it yourself you KNOW what you’re putting into the recipe, therefor you KNOW what you’re putting into your body!
