zucchini pesto pasta

I love pasta and pesto. As a combination of the two or in two separate counterparts. I love it.

Ever since I have discovered a delicious way of enjoying pasta without the calories and carbs, aka zucchini pasta. I have been on the hunt for a delicious basil pesto recipe to go with it, that doesn’t sacrifice on flavour and is low in calories. A perfect 5:2 diet recipe!

I am happy to report, that I have finally found the one! Courtesy of Weight Watchers I’ve adapted their recipe. I skip the toasting of the pine nuts completely and just blitz all the ingredients.

So I’ve come back from London and I’ve come back feeling a bit blurghh. If you knew what I did, you would know why! I’m never one to shy away from a bit of indulgence, especially on holiday mode but I knew my body wasn’t in a good way. My body was sluggish, craving all the bad foods and wanting more, more, more!


The silly season is soon upon us and I thought I would go in for a pre-season detox. I will be embarking on a 5 day juice detox. Before you think I’ve gone right mad. Keep an open mind, just as I did. I too felt the same way, until I watched a documentary film called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” which totally turned me around. You can watch this on YouTube here. It follows the journey of fellow Aussie, Joe Cross who conducts a 60 day juice fast to regain his health in an attempt to combat his debilitating and rare auto-immune deficiency including his dependency on steroids. You will be pleasantly surprised at the results. I urge you to keep an open mind and check it out. It is life changing and very inspiring.

Now to the cleanse
