Vegan Creamy Pesto Sauce

Healthy Pesto

Ok so yes I love a quick meal, life’s busy, works crazy and I tend to get HANGRY. Meaning when I get home from a marathon day of sessions, meetings and workouts I usually need to eat pretty quickly because I am so hungry it can make me angry!

So there I was in this state, HANGRY, tired and craving all the comfort food, pretty much on the pesto vibes so bad I could have rolled around in it. Gimme gimme gimme. There’s something magical about pesto. It’s one of those instant gratification tastes, comforting and almost like a cuddle. However us health conscious babes don’t need pesto to mean diet suicide, I mean all we wanted was a little comfort, right?

So I’ve messed around and nailed it. This pesto ticks all those endless health boxes and should keep you babes looking and feeling good!
