How to Make Cannabis-Infused Oatmeal
Oats are some of the healthiest grains available. They provide health benefits like weight loss, lower blood sugar, and even reduce the risk of heart disease. Having a balanced nutrient composition, oats are high in fiber and carbs, and are loaded with many important vitamins and minerals. Only half a cup of oats contains 51 grams of carbohydrates, 13 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat, 8 grams of fiber, with only 303 calories! This makes oats a super nutrient-dense food, providing you with a good ratio of nutrition to calories. In addition, oats are rich in antioxidants, can lower cholesterol levels, and lowers blood sugar. To add on to all of that, oats are very satiating and don’t require a lot to make you feel full.
The good thing is this recipe infuses CBD Oil into the oatmeal. This means you can enjoy the benefits of CBD and Oatmeal at the same time. Full spectrum CBD oil offers a wide-range of health benefits as well, most notably its anti-inflammatory properties and the calming effect it can have on your body. Coming in as an oil or tincture, it’s easily incorporated into liquids in your dishes or even in your water.
The ingredients are readily available and quite affordable. You don’t necessarily have to spend so much to prepare your CBD Oatmeal. Go ahead and give it a trial. The ingredients are given below.
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 2 cups quick cooking oats
- 25mg CBD oil
- 4 tablespoon chia seeds
- 4 tablespoon hemp seeds or hemp hearts
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
- 1/2 cup raisins and a sliced banana to top if desired
You must have noticed that Hemp seeds or hearts is listed as one of the ingredients. Hemp, of course, is high in plant-based protein, contains good fats, and is also nutrient-dense. One ounce of hemp seeds contains nine grams of protein, twelve grams of fat, and two grams of fiber. It also contains all twenty amino acids and all nine of the essential amino acids which our bodies do not produce naturally. Hemp is also extremely easy to incorporate into your diet through the use of hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds) and hemp oil. I commonly sprinkle hemp hearts into my food and smoothies; you can even mix chia and flax seeds with hemp hearts to create a trifecta of plant-based nutrition.
