Recipe: How to Make Cannabis-Infused Guacamole

 

It’s hard to not be fascinated with the avocado. Not unlike other green treasures we have grown to love, this smooth, filling fruit provides an abundance of health benefits. With all 18 of the essential amino acids, it qualifies as a complete protein, and because of its high fiber content, is easier to digest than animal protein.

Some mistakenly dismiss avocados when informed of their high fat content, but don’t be fooled! Avocados have less fat per ounce than lean beef, and one avocado contains less fat than three tablespoons of Italian salad dressing. Further, avocados are coined a “healthy fat” for a reason: they contain monounsaturated fats that boost your level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) to in turn help reduce cholesterol and risk of heart disease. Pair this with cannabis and some other savory flavors and you, my friend, are looking at a green bowl of health!

7 Easy Ways To Make Your Life Less Stressful

We all have stress in our lives, but imagine if you could reduce your stress levels by making some small, simple and effective changes?

These 7 techniques will help to drastically reduce stress from your life and can easily be integrated into any lifestyle or routine.

1. Go to Bed Earlier and Wake Up Earlier

We all know how important sleep is. Going to bed earlier and waking up earlier can help you start the day off just right. If your mornings are chaotic, it is likely that the rest of your day will also follow this energy. To prevent this from happening, give yourself time in the morning so you can relax and get ready for your day at a more leisurely pace. You can even organize yourself the night before, so you can spend time in the morning doing things that you actually enjoy like reading, journaling, meditating and so on. You can even create your own power morning ritual.

How To Make Broccoli Actually Taste Good

Broccoli is detested by so many people, and that sentiment is wholly undeserved. This green veggie is versatile and delicious, plus it pairs beautifully with butter and cheese(which is always a bonus, in our book).

The reason broccoli gets such a bad rap is because too many people cook it beyond recognition. It’s not the broccoli’s fault ― this nutritious vegetable deserves better.

If you’re a broccoli hater, we have a guide for you. A number of do’s and don’ts that’ll ensure you eat the best broccoli of your life ― and forget all about the bad broccoli of your youth. If you’re already a broccoli fan, you might find a new cooking method below.

Let’s get you learning how to love broccoli.

Roasted broccoli, the best vegetable dish in the world.

 

1. For the best broccoli of your life, roast it. Roasting makes broccoli taste like the best stuff on the planet. It caramelizes the broccoli, releasing the natural sugar in the vegetable. It is unlike anything you’ve ever had before.

8 Easy Ways To Completely Change Your Mental Space And Live Your Best Life

The best habits I have found among the most successful CEO’s and Personal Development Experts are:

  • Affirmations/Visualizations: Take five minutes, two times a day to re-affirm yourself with your goals, dreams and desires. Most of us do not achieve our goals not because we are too lazy, or untalented, but more because we forget them and our connection towards them.
    • Go outside: Even if it is for just ten minutes a day, take the time to go for a short walk or sit in a place surrounded by nature for a short while. Take the stress of the day off and you will feel instantly recharged.

Cannabis Oil Distillate: A Different Kind of Concentrate

A drop of distillate sits perched on the edge of a dabbing tool. Taut like a raindrop, this viscus and opaque orb glimmers as it rests within the concave folds of titanium. Encased within this golden drop of goodness is a semi-translucent, 99% pure decarboxylated and distilled tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) sap. Dollar for dollar, this morsel of oil is worth more by weight than just about any other consumable substance on the market, and for good reason: Cannabis oil distillates are arguably the future of cannabis concentrates.

11 Tips To Make Your Grocery Trip A Whole Lot Healthier

One of the best ways to practice healthy eating is to surround yourself with a variety of nutritious foods. Having spent a good part of my career helping clients get healthier, one of the first things we discuss is food shopping. If you buy healthy foods and ingredients, you will cook with them and eat them. If you bring lots of junk food into the house, guess what? That’s what you’ll eat.

Making smart choices in the grocery store really is the key to good nutrition, at least when eating at home. While some people love grocery shopping (I do and love seeing the new products), others see it as an onerous chore. Picking up a few simple shopping tips, however, can make your trip to the market much healthier.

1. Shop from a list.

Before heading out to the supermarket, plan ahead, and take stock of what ingredients you need to prepare healthy meals and snacks for the week. You can keep a paper shopping list or keep a running list on your phone so you know you won’t forget it. You can also download your favorite smartphone app.

2. Enlist your family.

To be sure your family will want to eat what you serve, get them involved in the preparation, and ask them if there’s anything special they want around the house; keep it healthy, of course. This will help them feel like they are part of a team.
