Health is having the energy to exercise and play with your kids, the mental clarity to excel at your job, and the focus to get what you want out of life. Most people don't know what it's like to truly feel well.  It's more than just the absence of disease.  Good nutrition and physical activity are the core to truly feeling well. Whether you're helping employees reach their goals or setting your own, Stephanie can help you find better nutrition as the first step towards a better life.

Famous Pistachio Pesto

pistachio pesto

This recipe has brought me to HOF status at many parties and barbeques.  It's thicker and less oily than other pestos I've tried, so it's perfect as a dip, sandwich spread, over pasta or with veggies.  I can get my boyfriend to eat almost anything if it's covered in this stuff.  He's even happy to wash the food processor afterwards since it's so tasty. :)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup dry roasted pistachios, shelled

1 cup fresh basil leaves, packed

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1 lime, juiced plus zest

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup spinach

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender.  Blend until smooth.  Add olive oil or lime juice until you reach desired consistency.
