During the later part of my pregnancy I developed an obsession with pesto sauce. I have no idea where the hankering came from, its not something I normally ate prior to pregnancy, but I had it at a restaurant and decided I needed to have it on the reg. I had few cravings during my pregnancy and I loved that the one thing I did crave was more or less on the healthier side. Yes, it can be high in fat and calories, but its also packed with nutrients like Iron, Vitamin A and C.
To this day I still enjoy pesto sauce, but prefer making it rather than purchasing it at the store to keep it clean and healthy. Serve it on salmon, grilled chicken, scallops, over brown rice - pretty much anything.
Next time you make salmon or grilled chicken I highly recommend adding a spoonful of this to thinly coat the protein and add a some flavor to the dish.
