'No-Cheese' Pesto


1 cup nuts (I used a mixture between walnuts and almonds)

2 garlic cloves

60 g fresh basil

1/2 lemon (juice only)

1/2 cup olive oil

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

salt & pepper after taste


1. Pre-heat the oven to 140C.

2. Toast the nuts lightly until golden (approx. 15-20 minutes)

3. Place the nuts in a highspeed blender along with the rest of the ingredients and blend until it forms a smooth paste. You may want to add a bit more olive oil depending on how runny you like your pesto.

4. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

I wanted to see someone who I felt knew what they were doing!


I think Jennifer does and I really like her thorough and steady approach. For me further testing has been invaluable in getting my life back in terms of being pretty much able to eat what I want again. It has also helped me to have faith in the supplements I have taken as these are based on those results. Also she is not afraid to tell me I need to take better care of myself, which in turn has helped me to be stronger in focusing on my recovery. I am very grateful to her.
