Cooking with CBD!
Incorporating Green Balance CBD into your Daily Meal Routine
When experiencing lifestyle changes most people often find themselves trying something new. What often comes with trying something new? Fear. The fear of trying something new can often get the best of us and cause a mental block. But, how else can you try something new without taking a chance? The best way to incorporate a new addition into your life is to combine it with something familiar. In other words mix the new with the old to create more of a balance.
Cooking with CBD or Adding CBD products to your daily routine can help improve your health in many ways. Some of the biggest benefits of using CBD products in your everyday life is relief of pain, reduction of anxiety and depression, alleviation of cancer-related symptoms, reduction of acne, increased neuro-protective properties, and could also benefit heart health. Some of these symptoms may not apply to you but prevention is key to a healthy lifestyle.
By now you may be wondering how you can use CBD without changing your daily habits. An easy solution to this is incorporating it into your meals. By adding a pinch of our Non-THC CBD crystalline isolate powder into a meal it can help give your body the benefits while keeping within your comfort zone.
Green Balance CBD isolate is a crystalline powder which is ground from the stalks and stems of the hemp plant. This makes it easy to ingest and process, and since it is tasteless and odorless, it can easily and safely be added to any food or drink!
You can incorporate CBD into basically any recipe but start off with a food you know and feel comfortable with, or even your favorite drink or smoothie. It is crucial to know that when cooking with CBD you must maintain lower temperatures (275° – 315°) to ensure the CBD does not cook out.
Here is an example of an easy-to-follow recipe for Pesto sauce. This recipe is for creating the perfect CBD-infused pesto sauce that will go with your noodle of choice.
- 4 cups of chopped garlic
- 4 cups of spinach leaves
- 1 ½ cups of chopped walnuts
- 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
- ¼ to ½ cup of extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- CBD Crystalline powder (15mg-25mg)
Mix all the ingredients into a food processor or high-speed blender until it reaches a smooth consistency. If the mixture needs a smoother consistency feel free to add extra oil. Once completely blended add the CBD and stir with a spoon or fork for 2-3 minutes. You can use your CBD-infused pesto sauce for pasta or dipping. Enjoy!
