Kale Pesto with Vegetable Noodles
Serves:2¼ cups

Ingredients
¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
¼ cup parmesan, grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Teaspoons sea salt
6 Tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup water
1 bunch of kale, 12 ounces
1½ cups basil, packed
For Serving:
Vegetable Noodles
Grated Parmesan
Toasted Pine Nuts
Instructions

Place the ingredients in the order listed into the blender. Blend on low, pushing the kale down little by little. Increase the speed when necessary until pesto is mostly smooth. I used speeds 3-5 on my Vita-mix. If you’re using a food processor you’ll need to chop the kale before starting.
Serve immediately with vegetable noodles and toppings. If you’re keeping it for a day or two, cover the surface with plastic wrap or a thin layer of olive oil to keep it from turning brown.
Notes


This recipe gives you 195% of Vitamin A and 184% of Vitamin C daily needs

Making cultured vegetables! These jars have carrot, cabbage, garlic, caraway seed and dill seed. My favorite way to eat them is in salads or wraps.
Cultured veggies provide the body with probiotics (good bacteria) that strengthen the immune and digestive systems. They help in the prevention of 170+ health conditions, from allergies to the flu.

If you wan’t to get a really great upper body workout you don’t need to go to the gym or spend a lot of money buying weights. The fact is weight is weight and it doesn’t have to be covered in neoprene to be useful for getting in shape. Almost all of us have a backpack laying around so put it to use by packing it with some books or anything of weight around you and start shaping and strengthening your upper body. Doing any of my other 31 day challenges? The challenge fits perfectly with any of the other plans. You can check them out here -
