    Its Monday. You want pasta but you want To be &ldquohealthy.&rdquo You don&rsquot want to cook but you want a homemade meal - enter my #RETOX PESTO AL CALIFORNIANO ! This is a take on a famed Italian northern pasta dish but takes out the potatoes and needless fillers and uses my Pesto recipe which is full of omegas, protein and taste without all the oil.

    1. Add two cloves of garlic and ½ a white onion to a pan with olive oil. Let simmer until soft.
    2. When onion is translucent add a cup of baby tomatoes cut in half and a dash of salt. Stir and let simmer on medium.
    3. Now add 3 large zucchinis cut in thin rings. Stir, add drizzle more of olive oil and dash of salt, and let cook.
    4. While the zucchini &ldquopasta&rdquo is cooking make the pesto! Recipe is the last post on the blog and uses two awesome secrets to make a much healthier and easily digest ale version of this famed Italian sauce.
    5. When zucchini is soft, mix it in a bowl with the pesto. Optionally sprinkle with Parmesan and fresh basil and enjoy!

    California RETOX Pesto:

    This is a much lighter & healthier version of traditional Italian Pesto, and, best of all, takes almost no time and makes almost zero mess.

    In a blender or cuisinart mix together:
    -two bunches of fresh basil
    -half a cup of almonds
    -quarter cup of Parmesan (or a piece two thumbs thick). Pecorino is a solid substitute.
    -dash of salt
    -fresh ground pepper
    -quarter cup of olive oil.

    Blend until smooth, adding olive oil as needed.

    Then stir into pasta al dente, use as a spread or dip, or mix into veggies and enjoy!

    Shootings. Hurricanes. Fires. Bombings. Accidents. It should be pretty clear to all of us that it can all go awry, any time. Maybe instead of &ldquoPraying for&hellip.&rdquo when the sht hits the fan we should JUST PRAY, pray for each other, for peace, for health, for strength, for humanity. Share this #RETOX #JUSTPRAY with someone you care about and let&rsquos turn this into a habit rather than a reaction.

    🌎H U M A N I T Y🌎This word that defines each & every one of us stems from the root humanus, which means KINDNESS, PHILANTHROPY, HUMBLE. Let&rsquos be honest&hellip these days we don&rsquot always live humanity as it&rsquos defined. That said, Tom Petty&rsquos music seems to unanimously and invariably spark that humanity, and in doing so intensely unite us humans.

    In these weeks, months, days, that have been such a challenge, full of strife and and endless barrage of hate, maybe we can take a moment and reflect on humanity, the same humanity that we feel at a concert surrounded by tens of thousands of different people with different backgrounds, origins, political views, goals, religions, beliefs. The people we can jump and dance and sing in unison with ensconced by Tom&rsquos music, the same people we share this planet with, the same people that we share humanity with.

    Tom Petty, from his lyrics to his music, his stances on accessibility, stardom, politics and money, was a bastion of humanity, something I know we have all felt, and shared.

    But maybe, maybe, when things get feisty or tough or full of hate we can for a split second imagine we are at one of his concerts, jumping and singing with our fellow humans, listening to amazing music shared with us by amazing people. Like that I am certain we will be making the world a more kind, philanthropic, humble, welcoming, positive place.

    #tbt to @tompettyofficial at @bsthydepark this summer, surrounded by tens of thousands of fellow humans, all truly sharing in humanity. #RETOX
