In the video the 58-year-old talks to the camera, next to all the healthy foods she's about the cook. Then she goes on to talk about her recipe, saying, "Toast some pine nuts, add them to some basil, trying NOT to spill them! Parmesan Cheese, two cloves of garlic, olive oil… and blitz! And hey Pesto!!"

She's also shared other videos recently of her healthy cooking, for her and husband Eamonn, revealing how she's food prepping on Sunday nights, cooking a range of healthy roasts and salads.
