Dr Jockers Comments: 

I absolutely LOVE a great pesto and enjoy using this on shiritaki noodles, zucchini noodles or the new Palmini noodles for a low-carb, phytonutrient rich, ketogenic spaghetti!!!  This recipe should be a family staple to promote ketosis, support your anti-oxidant levels and provide a lot of flavor and enjoyment in your household!!

This avocado pesto recipe tastes absolutely amazing and is rich in anti-aging phytonutrients.  Kale is extraordinarily rich in Indole-3 Carbonyl and Indole-3 Acetate which bind to help neutralize bad estrogens.  It is also loaded with chlorophyll which cleanses the blood stream.  Garlic is full of sulfur containing amino acids and anti-microbial agents.

Avocados are rich in good fats and they enhance the absorption of  fat-soluble nutrients from the rest of this great dish.  Italian herbs are an extremely amazing source of anti-oxidants and raw lemon provides vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids and organic acids which enhance the digestion process and nutrient bioavailability of this dish.  This is superfood synergy in intrinsic action – where multiple superfoods are combined and they bring out the best in each other to fully nourish our bodies.  It’s a beautiful thing.

Try this avocado pesto recipe out and as always, be sure to leave a comment with what you think!

  1. THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 2 CUPS OF FRESH BASIL AND 2 CUPS OF DRIED BASIL AND THE SAME FOR 1 CUP OF FRESH THYME AND 1 CUP OF DRIED THYME.
    YOU HAVE TO PROVIDE THE DIFFERENT PROPORTIONS VS FRESH AND DRIED HERBS.

  2. I am cooking daily with fresh herbs. Yes, correction for dry herbs is needed. Also, one cup of fresh thyme is too overwhelming in the flavor department. It would need a huge amount of fresh herbs and lots of work stripping the leaves from the stems. I would probably use a 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh thyme for this recipe….
