Tired of the same old green pesto? Reignite your love for pesto with this superfood kale pesto with pumpkin seeds! Perfect with pasta or as a dip for vegetables.
Not only delicious, but also beneficial for your health: This green pesto is a digestive helper – thanks to the added superfoods. Just one spoonful of Gut Feeling Mix contains powerful ingredients that are alkalizing, prebiotic and calming for your digestive system:
Fibre inulin in Jerusalem artichoke stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria in the gut and therefore balances the gut microbiome.
Ginger contains the digestive enzyme protease, which is responsible for breaking down proteins. It helps with bloating.
Apples are full of pectin, a soluble fibre that feeds the bacteria in the large intestine. They also contain the digestive enzyme amylase, which helps metabolize starch.
Fresh kale, which is full of vitamin C and fibre, makes this green pesto perfect. Pumpkin seeds not only give the pesto a slightly nutty flavour, but have been used for centuries as cure for intestinal parasites!
So from now on you can enjoy your favourite dip and pasta sauce with even more pleasure!
