We are wrapping this month up with a healthy heart chakra recipe. When you make this at home be sure to post it on Instagram with #tmtcooks so we can give you a shout-out!
The heart chakra is associated with love, of course, and self-care is a huge part of learning to love yourself. Self love begins with taking care of yourself, which begins with healthy eating, yum! Tons of healthy detoxing greens is a great place to start. Basil is particularly heart-healthy, since its compounds can soothe blood vessels and promote better circulation.
Recipe: Basil-Spinach Pesto with Gluten-Free Pasta
2 cups fresh basil leaves
5 ounces baby spinach leaves
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup Parmesan (optional. Or use nutritional yeast in place)
2 tablespoons walnuts (or use sunflower seeds)
½ teaspoon real sea salt
Place the basil and spinach in a food processor and chop it. Add the olive oil, Parmesan/nutritional yeast, nuts, and salt, and pulse until a creamy mixture forms. Toss with your favorite pasta (we like lentil pasta, kelp noodles, or zoodles) and serve immediately or add your favorite protein like tofu, chicken or shrimp.
