Pesto is a great way to get in a variety of nutrients in your diet. My favorite pesto is combining spinach or kale with lightly roasted sunflower seeds. You can even combine the two if you wanted. The ingredients are simple and I usually have them on hand. Green vegetables contain chlorophyll; which helps cleans and detoxes the blood and contains powerful antioxidants, calcium, vitamin A, C, K, and iron. I switched this pesto recipe up from the usual pine nuts and went with sunflower seeds that are very flavorful and nutritious. Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E and healthy fats. Bon Appétit!
