In my eyes, pesto is perfect! It’s versatile to use, savory to eat and packed full of leafy greens that fuel your body. I truly didn’t believe that this bright green sauce/dip could get any better, until now.
Just like the team behind Heinen’s Club Fx, I believe in the benefits that come from loading up on leafy greens, so you’ll always find me filling my cart in Heinen’s Produce Department. But did you know that you can find good-for-you greens outside of produce?
If you venture over to Heinen’s Wellness Department, you’ll find MacroLife Naturals macro greens powder. A clean supplement designed to help everyone eat their daily dose of healthy greens without actually having to buy them fresh, this greens powder is a true superfood with 38 ingredients that nourish the body at a cellular level. Packed full of antioxidants, co-nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, it’s a tasty, convenient and allergy friendly to increase your greens intake.
Most people think that greens powders are best served in smoothies, but I am here to bust that myth because, believe it or not, the “hidden veggie” in this pesto is greens powder. That’s right! Blended together with traditional pesto ingredients, it does not affect the texture, but adds a slight sweetness and, of course, a hefty boost of nutritious goodness!
Tossed with Fx-approved pasta, spread on sprouted bread or served alongside crackers and fresh veggies, it’s never been more delicious to go green with your diet!
