FRESH BASIL PARSLEY PESTO
Blanching the basil is the key to keeping your pesto from browning! Use this delicious pesto on pasta, chicken, steak, fish, tomatoes, and more – so versatile. I like to make large batches and store in glass jars. I served with beautiful baby tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market!
- 2 cups organic basil leaves, loosely packed
- ½ cup organic flat-leaf parsley, loosely packed
- ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup toasted organic pine nuts
- ¾ cup organic extra virgin INFUSIO olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Set aside a water bath - small bowl filled with water and a large handful of ice.
Bring small pot of water to boil and add the basil leaves for 30 seconds to soften.
Remove immediately and plunge leaves into the ice water.
After 30 to 60 seconds, remove the leaves from the ice bath, squeeze out excess water, and place into blender or food processor.
Add the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.
Store in glass jars in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If you plan on freezing the pesto, don’t add the cheese until you thaw and are ready to use. Makes about 2 cups.

Recommendation from Dr. Michael Galitzer
I asked Dr. Michael Galitzer, my personal anti-aging doctor in Santa Monica California, and also someone whom I’ve interviewed and several of my books, to give me a ‘recipe’ of sorts of how to help support a healthy immune system.
Older people often have worn out immune systems. Also younger people who eat processed foods and chemicals and don’t understand how to take care of their health may be lacking in nutrients, vitamins and immune stimulants.
Please please take note of Dr. Galitzer's recommendations.
With my pleasure,
Here are my recommendations to help support a health immune system:
- Vitamin D3 5,000 IU once a day with a meal
- Vitamin C 2,000 mg twice a day
- Astragalus is an herb that stimulates the immune system – once a day
- AHCC is a mushroom that stimulates the immune system – 1 twice a day.
- Zinc 25 mg once a day
- Echinacea – 1 capsule daily, or one cup of echinacea tea daily
Michael Galitzer, M.D.

Goop Article on Clean Beauty Swaps
1. Organic, Certified ToxicFree Deodorant:

2. Zinc-based Chemical Free Sunscreen:
Looking for safe protection from the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays, without chemical sunscreens? SUZANNE™ Organics Sunscreen provides 98% filtration of UV rays.

4. Glue-Free Silky Organic Mascara (One Of Our Best-Sellers):

5. Lead-free Lipstick Colored with Berries and Oranges (Customer Favorites!):
Most lipsticks contain lead and numerous dyes which have been banned from the food supply, but are still legally used in cosmetics. SUZANNE™ Organics combines Shea, Cocoa, and Avocado Butters to create a conditioning base combined with color from nature’s berries and minerals for a sheer, beautiful look.
6. Shampoo & Conditioner Free Of Sulfates, Pegs And Silicones in Natural Scents That Will Make You Swoon:
Most shampoos use harsh sulfates, detergents, and foam boosters to create generous lather, but those chemicals actually strip hair of natural moisture and leave it dry and lifeless. This nourishing ToxicFree® formula creates a mild lather with cocoa butter cleansers, that gently and thoroughly clean the hair. The high performance formula includes nature’s powerful nurturing ingredients, including quinoa – a complete protein to strengthen and repair the hair shaft, and leave it soft, smooth, and silky with the intoxicating scent of Wild Orange Vanilla and Coconut.
Most conventional conditioners weigh down the hair with heavy silicones and sulfates that feel smooth while being applied, but actually create build-up and do not protect the hair. This high performance treatment repairs the hair shaft with ToxicFree® ingredients including strengthening quinoa and flax protein. High shine is achieved using a combination of three oils from broccoli, argan, and sweet almond. The result is shiny, silky, healthier hair with the intoxicating scent of Wild Orange Vanilla and Cocoonut.
