POP Nutrition | Turkey Panini with Homemade Pesto Spread

Hi guys,

I love Panini and this weekend in Whole Foods I found this amazing Mutli-grain Bachata. pesto tomatoes bachata 3

I asked to try it and said I will get some next week since I already got another bread but changed my mind and came back because I picked up no salt turkey breast and was dreaming up a Panini sandwich especially since I just got fresh basil.
