Series on Sauces: #1 Pesto

Are you having trouble getting enough fat in your diet? One of the most simplest and delicious way of upping your fat content is by using fatty sauces and dressings. And do you know what the best part is? There are so many different sauces to choose between that you will never get tiered of any of them and they are all LCHF.

You have the butter based sauces such as bearnaise and hollandaise. You have the yoghurt based sauces such as Tzatziki, there are mayonnaise based sauces such as aioli or caesar dressing, as well as oil based sauces such as pesto and chimichurri! You see – the list is endless!

By putting a dollop here and a dollop there – not only will your brighten up your plate, but you will naturally increase your fat content without giving it that much thought!

So I thought I would do a ‘Series on Sauces’. To help inspire both you and me on all the great options that are available at our fingertips in upping our daily fat content!

The first in my series is probably one of the most easiest – Pesto! This is such a great robust sauce, that it is delicious with everything, as it is so bright and vibrant.IMG_4861

Best of all it is so easy with a handful of ingredients which you basically pound together until you get the consistency that you like.

Hope you enjoy the series 🙂
