KETO PESTO

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY 

 Phone Consult Testimony: “I know it has been a long time since we have chatted. I have fell off and gotten back on the WOE so many times, but in the process I have healed and now I am losing weight effortlessly. It’s just the way I eat now. THANK YOU, from the tip of my toes to the top of my head for all your help! Your 30 day programs are gold. And the consult is invaluable. 1.5 years later. I never gave up.” Kelly

KETO PESTOKeto Pesto

I would rather be around a campfire than watching television, but there are some programs I enjoy watching with my boys. They really love watching cooking shows with me and one of them is The Next Food Network Star and guess what… I just signed up to be a contestant! My theme would be the Keto Kitchen. I would love to have a TV show on the Food Network and teach all of you how to adapt your favorite comfort foods into keto-friendly foods! I would focus on all the yummy food you CAN have rather than focus on what you have to cut out. So if any of you out there have connections… hook me up! lol:)

Anyway, on the last episode of The Next Food Network Star, one of the contestants gave a tip on how to keep pesto bright green and he suggested putting some ice cubes into the blender before pureeing the ingredients (hot blades on the blender can make it turn brown). I thought I should make a little step-by-step video to show you just how easy this homemade sauce is to make! Enjoy!

Here is a Video of this recipe:

    It’s funny you say that… My 14 year old daughter was watching a few of your tutorial videos with me and she said ” Mom, she should have her own cooking show on the food network “.. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

    they did a “review” of keto diet in one of their magazines a while back and basically didn’t recommend it so i stopped buying it. 🙂
    i would love it if you had a show or was even on NFNS!
