The reason why I exercise (besides overall health and stress relief) 3-4.. sometimes 5 days a week, is to eat. I love food. Healthy, yummy, flavourful food. And this pesto is one of those foods.

Kale Pesto

I usually make pesto in the summer time when basil is in season. But now, since it is winter, I had been buying store-bought, and it just wasn’t cutting it. I looked around at a few different ideas and came up with this super easy kale pesto recipe. I couldn’t believe how delicious it came out!
