The joy of eating is in the known and unknown ways in which food inspires the taste buds and the spirit. So much of the food we eat today is bland, sweet, or salty, with little actual flavor. Herbs are used as accents rather than centerpieces. Yet herbs and spices often deliver the most distinct flavor profiles and can bring great diversity to a meal, whether they are used to enliven a dish or are featured on their own as a condiment or palate cleanser. This role is powerful, one that stimulates the senses, and it can transform our very relationship with food. The more different flavors we eat at a meal, the less likely we are to crave things later on. Break up your bland staple foods with something bitter and pungent like this oregano pesto, and you may find your afternoon cookie fix on the fritz. Let the flavors help you find the balance that your spirit craves.

Serving suggestion: Oregano pesto has a strong, pungent flavor that is a great complement to heavier foods. I like it with grilled meats and veggies, mixed into grain dishes, and alongside meat and cheese plates.
