Nicole's Organic Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

Ohh Pumpkin Pie…a classic of the season! Thanksgiving is approaching fast (WAY too fast!), and a lot of us are starting putting together the ‘Holiday’ menu.

Nicole’s ORGANIC ROASTED BEET PESTO

Organic Roasted Beet Pesto

Beets are another one of my favorite super-foods. They are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best-studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support, on top of promoting optimal health.
