I love ARUGULA! This incredible green has a high sulfur content which is great for keeping skin and hair beautiful. Arugula also contains many other vitamins and minerals, like most other cruciferous greens, and contains compounds that are potent stimulators of natural detoxifying enzymes in the body. This gorgeous green is also high in chlorophyll- an amazing blood cleanser and detoxifier! And best of all, arugula has an incredible peppery, bitter taste that is oh so good! Below is a delicious arugula pesto recipe that is easy to make and can be used in so many dishes. I’ve also included a delicious juice that is the perfect morning pick me up. This juice will energize your cells, detoxify heavy metals, cleanse your blood, and give you a super dose of vitamins and minerals. It sure beats popping a multi-vitamin in the morning!
The Ultimate Juice
1 pear (Bosc or Bartlett)
2-3 romaine lettuce leaves
1/4 inch piece ginger
Half a lemon
1 cup bunched cilantro
Add each veggie/fruit to your juicer one at a time and drink to your health!
1 cup arugula leaves
1 cup Italian parsley
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Romano cheese
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree.
I love adding this pesto to spelt or kamut pasta, roasted veggies or using it as a spread in sandwiches and wraps. It’s also great with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and cucumbers. I even eat it for breakfast on sprouted toast with avocado and tomato. It’s so delicious!
Happy Meatless Monday, have an amazing day!
