Pesto is traditionally made with pine nuts, but walnuts are a delicious alternative, and pack more protein and potassium than pine nuts do. They also have less carbs than pine nuts do!

Goats cheese is a healthier alternative to cow’s cheese, it has less lactose, it is less allergenic and is easier to digest. It’s high in calcium and is a great source of protein. It also has less carbs than cow’s milk does!
