Basil Pesto Sauce

This is great to put over your favorite lifefood veggies (cucmbers, broccoli, celery, cherry tomatoes) on top of  wild rice or quinoa. Or also shredded zucchini. Then top with hemp seed and nutritional yeast.

Pesto Sauce

1 large bunch of fresh basil

1 cup pine nuts or walnuts, or combine both

2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled an crushed

1 cup olive oil

Fresh black pepper, to taste

Sea Salt to taste

Chop the basil together with the nuts in a blender. Add all ingredients and pulse into a thick and chunky paste.

Basil has bactericidal properties (hygenic to the body). It is a vermafuge (helps clear parasites), and it helps sedate muscles. It is very helpful for the kidneys and liver. It also has good levels of calcium in ratio to phosphorus.

    I thought rice was not a lifefood….

    • Admin says:

      Rice is a grain. Wild rice is not a grain but actually a grass seed and therefore a lifefood. Others that fall into this category are quinoa, millet, amaranth. They can be soaked to soften or even left in the sun for a few hours. Grain is actually a hybridized seed. If you care to look you can find the harvesting process for Wild Rice is quite different than for what we call “rice”. I hope this helps.
