Pesto is one of those staples that everyone should always have on-hand. It comes in handy for so many things and adds such fresh flavor to everything it meets!

While homemade pesto is usually better, I rely on prepared pesto from the store a lot. Here are some of the ways I use it:

  • Tossed with pasta (tortellini is my absolute favorite, but any pasta is good)
  • Spread on a tortilla, topped with a little cheese, rolled up and microwaved for 30 seconds
  • As a sauce for pizza
  • Thin with a bit of olive oil and serve with roasted vegetables
  • As a sandwich spread
  • On meat, chicken or fish
  • Blend into white bean dip
  • As a crostini topping with parmesan or goat cheese
  • Mixed into shredded chicken with a touch of mayo (recipe)
  • Tossed with a grain, topped with goat cheese crumbles

I have a renewed obsession with coconut water. But this isn’t any old coconut water. It’s Yoga Earth Coconut Water Purity which is a coconut water powder that comes in an individual serving making it portable without a need to refrigerate! (I don’t know about you but coconut water needs to be ice-cold!) Mainly I

burrata cheese

in my cupboard: burrata cheese

Burrata cheese is quickly rising to the top of my “Favorite Cheese List” – and I mean quickly. This was only my third time having it, which may seem a bit premature but it is deeeelish! My first experience was at Mozza Mia and then most recently at my cousins house in LA. I’m obsessed.

garlic gold balsamic dressing review

review: garlic gold balsamic dressing

I’ve heard a number of great things about Garlic Gold and with a combo of garlic and olive oil I’m not sure how you could go wrong. My life wouldn’t be complete with out the two. Honestly. If my memory serves me, I tried this years ago at the first Natural Products Expo I attended

trader joe's potstickers

in my cupboard: trader joe’s potstickers

Normal people probably think about fun weekend plans, exciting meals out, cocktails or just relaxing at home on Friday afternoons. Apparently I’m not normal and I think about potstickers. Any variety. All I know is that I needed them that night. My life would simply not be complete without them. (This is why I spend so

siggi's probiotic singles

review: siggi’s probiotic singles

I don’t know exactly what it was that prompted me to buy this. I take a probiotic every single morning, but I felt the desire to try these since I love Siggi’s yogurt. (This desire inside of me also makes shopping on a budget impossible for the record.) So I bought them (again, no budget)
