{parenting, nutrition} Kale and Walnut Pesto

I got hardcore on The Family Kitchen today. I put y’all in your place. At least all of you family cooks who don’t make pesto as part of your regular routine.

See, I think that if you’re feeding a family and don’t always have a freezer stocked with pesto, you’re doing something wrong.

(That’s hardcore, right?)

Check out 6 reasons why I think that pesto is an ultimate family food (including a few, perhaps, unorthodox pesto combinations!). You’ll also get my recipe for easy and super healthy Kale and Walnut Pesto (can be shared with kids eating nuts 6+ mos). Delicious and the only way that the Hungry Baby can enjoy the texture of dark leafy greens these days.

And—side note!—though veggie pestos are definitely the most nutritionally dense, don’t forget that herbs are also super good for us, tots included!
