Vegan Pesto Pasta Medley
One of the main things I have missed since changing my eating habits is PASTA! That’s right, it’s okay to eat those carbs sometimes. I love the development over the last few years in a good GF noodle. But to find a tasty vegan pesto?! Well, that’s the cherry on top! Because let’s face it, pesto is cheese-based and without it, I truly thought a vegan pesto would be awful! But I was wrong.
While I don’t have any affiliations with Trader Joe’s, I do love the convenience of their vegan and gluten-free products. This pesto has zero traces of tasting like kale and is the perfect way to trick someone into eating cleaner without their knowledge of it. Plus, it’s guilt-gree for you!
Another bonus point for this meal is that it is easy to make and takes very little time. With everything going in one pan, your clean-up is quick and you can spend more time enjoying your meal and saving room for dessert.
Like my Almond Butter Cups !
As many of you know, I focus on clean eating for healthy living. After becoming a consultant with Arbonne, now in qualification for Area Manager, I have fine-tuned my clean eating habits. I love that this recipe is 30 Days to Healthy Living compliant.
Not only will you enjoy this meal, but your body will feel good from the inside out. You won’t have to worry about hidden chemicals and sugars that your body has to slow down to process. So dig into a giant bowl of this pasta medley and save that cheat meal for another day.
