Who doesn’t love pesto? It tastes great drizzled over your gluten-free pasta for lunch or dinner, or as a dip with crackers and crudites. This simple vegan recipe is hard to beat and boasts the added bonus of 15g of muscle fuel from Form’s unflavoured Pureblend Protein.
Alongside being a protein-packed snack or meal addition, it’s also a perfect remedy for seasonal colds and flu thanks to immune system-defending garlic. Raw garlic has long been hailed for its medicinal properties, helping keep germs, bacteria and viruses at bay.
