With the arrival of spring, it’s the perfect time to enrich your meals with fresh herbs. These flavorful additions not only enhance every dish but also support brain health. Work to incorporate these phytonutrient-rich powerhouses into every meal, elevating the flavor profile while also boosting mental clarity.

This month’s recipes for our PreCODE and ReCODE members include Almond Herbed Cheese Spread, Dairy-Free Pesto, and Chimichurri Sauce (recipe below.)

It’s quite easy to make, requiring just a few pulses of your food processor or blender. Drizzle on salads, cooked vegetables, any low-carb pasta, or with any approved protein of your choice.
