Watch: Bite by Bennett, featuring Seahawk Michael Bennett and his family



Did you see our show with Michael Bennett? He invited us in his own kitchen to check out some of his go-to recipes and healthy eating tips.

If you didn't, don't worry - we have it for you above! Along with being hilarious and cracking jokes left and right, Bennett and his wife Pele are passionate about breaking the myth that eating healthy has to be expensive.

Their foundation, The Bennett Foundation, have teamed up with Safeway to spread the word and encourage healthy eating - especially in kids. Expect to see a lot more of the Bennett's on Seattle Refined.

Hungry for that pasta they made in the show? Here's the recipe for the very same Kale Almond Pesto Michael eats before games (it's soooo easy):

Kale Almond Pesto

  • 1 cup kale
  • 1/4 cup basil
  • 1/3 cup toasted almond
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1pinch red pepper flakes
  • Olive Oil to desired consistency
  • Salt to taste


Toss with cooked whole wheat pasta & your favorite cooked proteins & vegetables. Serve warm or cold.
