Cilantro is truly a healing food. Two teaspoons of cilantro pesto daily for 3 weeks is is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies.
Cilantro Chelation Pesto
4 cloves of garlic crushed
1/3 cup brazil nuts( selenium)
1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine)
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds ( zinc, magnesium)
2 cups packed fresh cilantro ( vit A)
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice ( vit C)
2 teaspoons of dulse powder
unrefined sea salt to taste
Process the cilantro and oil in blender until chopped. Add remaining ingredients and mix until blended into a paste.
Add some salt to taste. Store in dark glass bottles if possible and keep cold. Can be frozen if you wish to make a large batch when cilantro is in season. This is delicious on toast, potatoes and pasta.
We are hoping in the future to beable to offer a cilantro extract for those who do not have time to prepare the pesto.
