This is a new recipe I thought up and cooked over the weekend because my son, Galen, can actually eat all the ingredients! At the moment, he is avoiding dairy, all the grains and more. So, I’ve had to get a little creative. Thankfully, this turned out really well – and looks beautiful! Pesto is so versatile.

I really didn’t want to share this silly video with you.  I mean, what does churning butter have to do with bone health anyway?  (Oh, I guess we could research up some connection between the amazing fat-soluble vitamins in hand churned butter and bone density – but it would definitely be a stretch!) Anyway, my wife Viv (AlgaeCal’s COO) and Monica (AlgaeCal’s Content Manager) overruled me! So here you go.  Have a chuckle at my expense. Watch the video below.
