Juicing with Kindergarten Teacher BMG

BMG is well-known around school for having a fun classroom and for inspiring a love of learning in his students.  He is also known for being an organic foods enthusiast and for being a regular juicer.  We are lucky that he is sharing some of his favorite juice recipes with us.  Your kids will love the juices even more if they know they are drinking BMG’s favorites.   BMG suggests, “please use only organic ingredients for the following drinks and juice daily, l’chaim!”

Pesto Sauce: a quick, healthy dinner

Any leafy green vegetable can quickly be whipped up into a pesto sauce.  The variations are endless; you can make it spicy, fresh, nutty, earthy, cheesy, smoky, or savory.  Pesto is not just for pasta.  You can use it on top of soups, on sandwiches, root vegetable crostinis, pizzas, risotto, fish, chicken, or steak.  If you have any leftover pesto sauce, you can use it in another dish later in the week.  Store pesto sauce in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week.  Try one of these great recipes below which are easy and a great way of using simple ingredients that taste delicious!- By Yael
