Killer Kale Pesto and Giving a Helping Hand

 And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud became more painful than the risk it took to blossom.  ~  Anais Nin


On my quest for healthy food recipes I stumbled upon a blog that I so enjoy, for many reasons.  Entitled ‘in pursuit of more, Shira is the shining example of being  more mindful of what we eat and a catalyst for extending a hand to those who go without.  I don’t know what I love most:  her recipes, inspirational quotes weaved throughout her posts, beautiful food photos, or her brainchild non-profit organization, Not So Fastcreated to give that helping hand to organizations who feed the hungry.

Shira’s aptly named killer kale pesto is a big hit in our house and I may never make any other pesto again.  I made a double batch (freezes well), one with and one without cheese and have tried it over portobello mushroom ravioli, roasted cauliflower (best way to eat this veggie I think) and even packed as a dip for raw vegetables to take along on a hike.  Her red lentil vegetable curry and coconut quinoa breakfast bowl are pretty special as well.

Ready to spread my wings

Although her recipes are amazingly yummy, it is her provocative message that gives me food for thought.  One of her commenters provided a link that should cause us all to pause and take stock of our lives.  So, what do you do to give a helping hand?
