Spring Musings and Cilantro Chelation Pesto Recipe:)

To assist the lighter more lyrical transition into Spring from the hearty more heavier vibrations of Winter I have shared a Cilantro Chelation Pesto Recipe below that I seem to find all over the internet and some information from Pam at Partner Earth Education Center about the healing properties of Cilantro a wonderful ally for us in these times.Thanks!
Cilantro (and its seed, coriander) is an extremely healing herb. It is highly antibacterial, great aid to digestion and removes heavy metals, most notably mercury. However, it is best eaten or used fresh or fresh frozen not tinctured or dried.Making it into a pesto is a very good idea. The other thing to do is juice the fresh cilantro by adding just a bit of water enough to get it whirring around and then squeeze the juice out and freeze it in ice cube trays. Then you can thaw the cubes as needed. It is a good supplement to keep the immune system boosted AND it is a great way to reduce the effects of hang-overs. WHO KNEW? On a Plant Spirit note, Cilantro removes “the heavys”, you know when it all just seems a bit too much and the heavy load weighs you down or really heavy energy of any kind regardless of the source.
Coriander Chelation Pesto:

Garlic, 4 cloves
Brazil Nuts (selenium), 1/3 cup
Sunflower Seeds (cysteine), 1/3 cup
Pumpkin Seeds (zinc, magnesium), 1/3 cup
Fresh Coriander (ie. cilantro, Chinese parsley / Vitamin A), 2 cups packed
Flaxseed Oil, 2/3 cup
Lemon Juice (Vitamin C), 4 tablespoons
Dulse Powder (Seaweed), 2 tsp
Bragg’s Liquid Aminos [or Miso], to taste


PROCESS the coriander and flaxseed oil in a blender, until the coriander is chopped.
ADD the garlic, nuts and seeds, dulse and lemon juice.
MIX  until the mixture is finely blended into a paste.
ADD a squirt of Bragg’s to taste and blend again.

If you have fresh nettle up where you live, experiment with different parts, Nettle, Basil & Cilantro perhaps. Yum!


Doesn’t the amazingness of plants just blow your mind?
