Pesto may be the flavor I crave the most when asking myself the age old question: “What the heck am I in the mood for today?” I try to always follow my cravings. Cravings are our bodies way of signaling to us it needs more of a certain nutrient. You can’t get much more nutrient-packed than fresh garlic, dark leafy greens and pastured chicken with bone broth!
