Healthy Food – Cannabis & Hemp Could Help You
We, at Sweedsy, are serious about supporting your New Year’s resolutions. In our previous post, we brought some tips on how to get started with them. Today we’re going to take a look on one of the key things – nutrition.
Sometimes, choosing food can seem very complicated or even impossible to comprehend.
Worry no more! Here goes some advice:
- Try to write down everything you eat for a week. You’ll be surprised to find out how much food you chew almost unconsciously. Analyze your journal and adjust the way you consume food.
- Track how much soda containing sugar you drink. Try this app, for example. ‘Liquid’ sugar is one of the main reasons of gaining weight.
- Dieting is wrong. You don’t need to diet. You just need to switch to healthy food, like, forever. Choose mindfully what you put inside, and you will be happy with results.
- Eat plenty of protein. You may choose meat or vegan option; it doesn’t matter (unless you’re conscious about your carbon footprint). Go ahead and find new and tasty sources of proteins.
- Carbs are not your enemy. If you choose right carbs, you’ll be all right. Professionals say it’s better to eat carbs around your training.
- Fat is your friend, too. You need fat to function. Period. (Avoid trans fats, though).
- You don’t need to part ways with your favorite cake forever. Seriously. You’re a grown up; you can eat it whenever you want. The key is to have a piece, not the whole cake.
- We all eat some garbage sometimes; it’s true. Don’t blame yourself for it – it just means that you’re human, and a good one.
The rule is simple: you need a healthy combination of proteins, carbs, and fats.
If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, consider cutting some carbs and adding more vegetables. If you’re active and adventurous, choose quality carbs to keep you moving. Btw, do you know that hemp seeds are a superfood?
Cannabis Milk Recipe
It’s a good way to cook your cereal or smoothie. It can also be used for baking and coffee. Cannabis milk contains not so many calories as cannabis oil, but it is still pretty potent.
- Ground cannabis (quantity dependent upon the desired potency, usually 1 g is enough);
- ¼ C raw almonds;
- 2 C water
- Blend the almonds and water in a food processor until it looks like milk;
- Strain the milk through cheesecloth or a strainer;
- Add the strained milk to a saucepan and boil;
- Add the ground cannabis and simmer for 45 minutes at reduced heat (don’t forget to stir frequently);
- Remove from heat and use as you wish to.
Experiment using cow, goat, coconut, hemp, soy, rice or whatever milk you prefer. Remember that the higher fat content produces more efficient THC activation with a corresponding increase in therapeutic effects.
