Lokahi Leaf: CBD Cooking & Weight Loss Tips

Utilizing CBD can be utilized in your daily diet and the food dishes you enjoy. It doesn’t have to be taken from the dropper, soft gel, or gummy. Feel free to add it to your standard cooking habits. When you choose to take this step here are a few helpful hints:

Avoid putting CBD oil directly exposed to heat sources while cooking. You want to ensure you don’t remove the critical cannabinoids and terpenes effectiveness. This means that heating the oil too high can result in the loss of beneficial cannabinoids and may decrease the efficacy of the CBD. Remember that CBD will begin to break down somewhere between 320- and 360-degrees Fahrenheit. A good rule of thumb is to add it after the food has been removed from the stove and plated.

Allow the oil to be used sparingly. You want to ensure the quality and taste of the food still shines through in your recipe. If you want a stronger dose of CBD I recommend utilizing a higher potency oil.

Here is one of my favorite healthy meals:

Two bell peppers cooked down with a vegan apple sausage link. It’s a great way to reduce calories. By adding these amazing peppers to a meal they take up a lot of space and are low in calories, and carbs, and provide amazing healing qualities.

  • A 2014 study conducted by the Nutrition and Toxicology Research Institute at Maastricht University in the Netherlands reported that consuming red pepper with every meal increased feelings of satiety and reduced cravings. The study found that the capsaicin in red peppers worked to suppress the appetites of participants, which led to lower overall caloric intake and weight loss.

They contain antioxidants called carotenoids that great vegtable for reducing inflammation, decrease cancer risk and protecting cholesterol and fats from oxidative damage.

One cup (149 grams) of chopped red pepper contains 9 grams of carbs, 3 of which are fiber. It provides 93% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) for vitamin A and a whopping 317% of the RDI for vitamin C, which is often lacking on very low-carb diets.

Green, orange, and yellow bell peppers have similar nutrient profiles, although their antioxidant contents may vary.
