Pesto - Nut free

Pesto that won’t kill me

Stupid nut allergies have prevented me from trying a number of foods over the years that look, smell and no doubt taste amazing.  Pesto was one of the things I had wanted to try for years, but as it contains pine nuts it’s been a no go.

I had a moment of genius (or madness, I can never really tell the difference) and figured that I could replace the pine nuts with something else, after a little trial and error I found a combination that worked.

Guacamole

Guac you gonna do about it?

I love avocados and get very excited when they come into season, I would happily eat them with every meal but guacamole is my favourite way to have them.

I will be honest, I am eating guacamole with almost every meal at the moment. I may be adding a healthy dose of jalapeno so that it is too spicy for everyone else.  I didn’t say I was doing that, I might be doing it.  It could be that the jalapenos are extra spicy.  

Spanish Meatballs

The Spanish have things right if you ask me, any culture that has siesta and tapas is winning in my book.  These meatballs are my take on a tapas dish I had years ago, they are simple to make but don't last very long.

Coconut Trail Mix

Coconut Trail Mix - Primal, Paleo, Kid Friendly and Clean Eating 

I love snacks; I hate snacks that are filled with chemicals and flavourings.  This trail mix is a summertime staple in my bag, in the car and the chilly bin.  It is jam packed with healthy fats and a little honey to sweeten the deal if you are looking for a snack that is good for while you are out and about or something for the kids to nibble on in the back of the car I can highly recommend this mix.

Apple Chips

Apple chips are a cheap and easy snack.  They make a great alternative to potato chips; they are sweet, crisp and slightly addictive.  If you are looking for a way to get fruit into little people, they are a brilliant option.

Carrot Taco Shells

Taco Tuesday seems to be a new regular feature in people's lives (thank you Lego Movie) having an alternative to corn taco shells is a good way to sneak some different vegetables into the kid's diet #everythingisawesome
