The Pesto.

This crazy pesto I made, that is completely raw, and completely vegan was used as a spread, a sauce, a dressing, hair gel and face mask (the last two are optional..). Ha.

As usual, no measurements, just giv’er ’til it feels good:

fresh basil
fresh kale (remove spines)
hemp seeds
pumpkins seeds
sunflower seeds
olive oil
almond butter

Check out these pics for some applications:

    This Vegan thing… It’s gotta go. Substitute almond butter with bacon grease then you’re all good!

      ok, you know raj, bacon grease is great for my hair and complexion, but for ingestion, i prefer food over motoroil.
