Coriander and pumpkin seeds pesto

Pesto’s are an awesome way to pack in a lot of nutrition into a small quantity of food. I am definitely in favor of adding in super charged sides into majority of my meals. You can keep things simple and exiting at the same time. I love the idea of PLANTIFUL bowls designed with a purpose to nourish one’s body and satisfy one’s taste buds. I swapped thinking calories to easy to digest and abounded in nourishment long time ago.  It is important to have a good relationship with food that focuses on positives rather than calorie restrictions and the fear of imaginary negative outcome. Eating food that delivers all that your body needs in a slightly intensified way makes you feel more satisfied quicker and by so doing, with time you consume way less food and in a natural way  you get to the place of your body self-regulating and your mind not thinking anymore about missing out on something. Pure joy!



Getting back to the main character of today’s post – coriander and pumpkin seed pesto.

I absolutely love it! It is full of flavor and has multiple health benefits. It is super green so we all know that greens are super alkaline. This is an obvious thing. Let’s talk about the unique health property of coriander. This ordinary herb has an extraordinary ability to mobilize heavy metal pollution out of our cells. If we use it in large quantities  we should definitely consider the use of binders to help our body evacuate mobilized toxicity safely out of the system. I am thinking chlorella, activated charcoal, zeolite or bentonite clay. It is an extensive subject so, I will write more about it in a separate article dedicated to safe detoxification.


Why do I mix coriander with pumpkin seeds?


Coriander mobilizes toxicity and the nourishment contained in pumpkin seeds supports the liver function and protects DNA from getting damaged. Wherever there are free radicals there is a need for anti– oxidants!

Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc,  selenium, magnesium, manganese, copper, essential fatty acids, protein and phytosterols. They are a powerhouse of protective nutrition so use them as often as you can in your food creations.


Enough of this health talking! Let’s get to it!



Bunch of fresh coriander chopped

0⁄5 cup of activated pumpkin seeds { soaked in water for 1 hour, and rinsed before using}

1 clove of garlic pressed

1⁄3 cup of olive oil

squeeze of lemon juice

pinch of Himalayan pink salt

Touch of black pepper



Place all the ingredients in the food processor and blend till desired consistency has been reached

How simple it is to nourish your body and love what you eat! Try this recipe and let me know, if you love it as much as I do in the comments below. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello, and welcome. I have decided to write this blog to share my passion for health, food and creativity. I have an MSc (Hons) in Food Science and Human Nutrition which I earned at Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Poland, I have trained in multiple holistic disciplines while living in Ireland for the past 12 years and I am also involved in music and the arts. My knowledge about health was acquired not only through academia but also because of a deep interest from a young age, years of treating people and personal health issues which lead me to unveiling natural ways of healing the body on the physical and subtle level. I promote a plant based lifestyle because of personal preferences rather than a dogma. I do not believe that there is a right or wrong way of doing things. Whatever works and does no harm, I go by that. I enjoy having a good time, meeting new people, going new places, and learning new things to deepen the awareness of really knowing nothing☺. I hope you will enjoy my blog and you will get to know me a bit better, so I can keep it short and sweet in here ;) I wish you a happy and healthy life.
