I found this blog that other day and just fell in LOVE with all of the information that was shared by this blogger.
I contacted Bree to ask her to do a guest post for you guys because I felt that she would be someone great to speak to you guys and also contribute to those mommy’s out there that follow my blog.
Bree has a great blog that displays so great recipe options for you to consider. I try to post some recipe options for you guys but I know that I do not always do a good job at that! So if you are needing to spice up your menu please feel free to take a look at Bree’s site!
Hello! I am so excited to be guest posting on Infinite Life Fitness. What an awesome website with great information and inspiration. (Which I could use a lot of when it comes to exercise…)
My name is Bree from www.skinnymommy.com . As foodie and recipe developer I very rarely make the same thing more than once, but my Superfood Italian Pesto I make literally once a week. I love it. My kids love it. It can be tossed with whole wheat pasta, served over grilled shrimp, pan seared fish, or grilled chicken. It also makes a wonderful base for a pizza or an Italian panini. It’s the best! With superfood kale as the base you can feel really good about eating it too.
The Skinny on Kale:
Highest antioxidant capacity of any vegetable
More calcium and iron than any other vegetable
It’s also rich in carotene for good eye health and contains indoles which lower “bad” cholesterol
Filled with fiber and sulfur, it is also a great detox food
Here’s What You Need
2 cups of kale
1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp each salt + pepper
Zest of 1 small lemon
Juice of 1 small lemon
1/4 cup of parmesan
1/4 cup of slivered almonds* (toasted lightly over low)
*I recommend buying the small slivers from the baking aisle otherwise, grind the almonds before adding the other ingredients.
Here’s What You Do
Add the kale, lemon juice and lemon zest to the food processor along with the almonds, streaming in the olive oil. Process until a pesto like consistency forms. Transfer to another bowl and stir in the parmesan and the s+p.
One phrase: “Special green pasta!” Toss this with whole wheat pasta and I guarantee your kids will love it more than mac n’ cheese.
