pumpkin seed pesto

eating green in 2013: pumpkin seed pesto, recipe found here


simply. more. green.

It's been a long time since I broke with routine for a Friday evening (99.9% of the time opting for pizza and salad). After a relatively rough week caring for sick ones and subsequently falling ill myself, something other than pizza was needed. A few weeks ago I bought some vegetable pasta curly cues that were begging to be eaten up with a tasty sauce. This pumpkin seed pesto recipe arrived in my inbox today from Eden of Feed Life, with perfect timing as apparently pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, a nutrient that encourages healing (among other things).

Now that we've had a zinc-tastic family meal, it's time for a funny movie - also known to speed healing! 

Zinc-tastic pumpkin seed pesto for happy, healthy times.
