This is a fantastic pesto that can have several variations and can be morphed to suit your body and digestive system. Being made with seeds rather than nuts makes it much lighter and easier for some to digest. It is also high in antioxidants, phytonutrients and healthy fats from olive oil, seeds and herbs.
You will need one to two large bunches of fresh Basil, keeping all the leaves and discarding the stems
OK so this is a ridiculously simple recipe that takes little effort to make and yet is super nutritious, full of protein and fun for kids and adults alike.

Just remember that sweet potatoes still have the 'sweetness' and hence the sugar effect and are best enjoyed on occasion and in small amounts. Here is a simple recipe for shoe...

One of our favourites as a kiddies dinner - but also a great substitute for the usual starchy potato mash that some adults are trying to wean off!

You can pre-make them and have them ready in the fridge to snack on over a day or two. You can change the type of grated vegetables to suit your diet - you can try adding grated beetroot, celery, fennel bulb, arame seaweed - the choices are endless. Here are ones...
