The first time I saw the price of pesto sauce in a grocery store, my jaw hit the floor.
My dad was the typical Italian immigrant gardener (he was a farmer back in Italy as well), who grew all our vegetables in the summer and preserved them for the year.
He grew bushels of basil to make pesto sauce. It didn’t occur to me how much of a pain it would be for others to make their own from scratch.
There is a ton of conflicting (and sometimes erroneous) information about the healthiest type of diet.

Learning about where your food comes from will teach you everything you need to know about eating healthier.
Just like growing basil, it’s a lengthier process, but it’s much cheaper on you and your health.
