Recipe from Austria! This Gluten-Free, Vegan Gnocchi with Pesto Carrots and Zucchini is full of flavor and so easy to make for dinner.
I got this recipe from a friend in Hungary after she got the famous Viva Mayr cookbook. Now I was impressed because Viva Mayr is the all renown place to go and get a boost into a healthy life without compromising on tasty foods.
Inflammation in the body, come to find out, is what makes us sick. I know this because of my spine and the minute I eat anything that is not alkaline my whole world becomes painful. Yes, when I am in pain everything seems to stop.
It feels like a heaviness that I don’t seem to be able to move around. I know when this happens because my rings are tight in the morning. Before I didn’t quite understand this inflammation in the body but the minute my rings are tight I get my water and start drinking as much as I can to flush the body.
I’m hoping one day I will be a guest at the Viva Mayr but it is really expensive so right now I’ll stick to my cookbook when I want to detox or heal my body from not eating right.
