A perfect anytime, anywhere dish that can be whipped up in mere minutes.

Whether you’re entertaining for a crowd.

Or enjoying it in front of the Tube…

This pesto is sure to wow your little taste buds.

Spread atop a few gluten-free crackers, used as a dip with crudites or a spread in lieu of mayonnaise on sandwiches…

I’ve even been known to take a lil’ dollop and place it atop my breakfast omelets.

And alongside my evening grilled tofu, fish and poultry dishes.

Simply put. There’s no wrong way ta’ eat a good pesto.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
