TODAY on August 8th, National CBD Day recognizes the natural hemp product everyone’s asking for!
Over the years, hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) has made quite a name for itself in the wellness world. Since a growing number of products – from tinctures to topicals – hit the marketplace, CBD continues to be shoppers’ favorite option for holistic alternatives. As an added bonus, CBD does not possess the psychoactive properties of THC.
Another advantage of CBD is that it is naturally sourced and extremely versatile. Try a tincture, capsule, rubbing it on your skin, or bathing in it. You can even give it to your pets!
The hemp plant has withstood the test of time and politics; herbalists have long used hemp to promote wellness, while farmers have grown it as a source of fiber to make clothes and rope. But in the 20th century, governments came down on all things cannabis and everything related to it.
Nowadays, political leaders recognize what scientists long knew: properly sourced CBD won’t get you high. Since 2018, the federal government has defined hemp, which has little or no THC in it (less than .03% to be exact), as a legal plant that is distinct from marijuana. Therefore, hemp-based products like CBD oil don’t fall under national anti-drug laws.
Seek the powerful properties of CBD and experience the wealth of natural relief and recovery. Join others seeking natural support on National CBD Day, and get proactive about your wellness regimen.
National CBD Day is a great day to bring awareness to what CBD (cannabidiol) brings to millions of people annually.
In good health,
Kelly Krishna ❤
National Breadstick Day recognizes the delicious goodness of dunkable pieces of warm enjoyment.
Breadsticks come in many forms. They can be soft or crunchy. Breadsticks can be flavored with garlic, onion, salt or cheese. They can also be sweetened with cinnamon and sugar.
They often accompany Italian meals. Pair them with pasta covered in alfredo or marinara sauces. Add them to a soup, if you prefer, enjoy them with your salad. The aroma of fresh-baked breadsticks warm a home and improve every meal.
When it comes to dipping sauces, breadsticks satisfy just about everyone at the table. Restaurants and home cooks offer up cheesy, herbed and spicy sauces for dipping. If you can’t decide, order extra and try them all!
Today invite family and friends over for a beautiful meal and add breadsticks to the menu.
What are your favorite kinds?
Happy Friday #NationalBreadstickDay
Food tastes better to people who are told the meal has been prepared with love.
In honor of the essence of Thanksgiving, we came up with a few new creative ways to express gratitude to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Gratitude has been linked to everything from improving happiness, body image, sleep, life, you name it. Instead of consuming spirits we Celebrate this year in the True Spirit of Thanksgiving! It is a gentle reminder to love those at our tables and beyond.
For some a little planning can go a long way especially when you have a history of disordered eating. In the midst of this food-focused holiday event could be far from a relaxing night with friends and family. It is hard to separate events being based in food from the part that is about connecting with people. For those who are trying to prevent triggers to an internal battle with bulumia, binge eating, and anorexia, the holidays are certainly among those experiences to be vulnerable and to know that you are not alone.
Eating disorders often bring about an internal fracturing of mind, body and spirit. It may feel like you have been trapped in your mind by eating disorder thoughts that disconnect you from your body and spirit. Recovery involves reintegrating the mind, body, and spirit, creating an internal sense of wholeness. To embrace this holiday season with the intention of healing Cooking for your Spirit is a healthy guide that lends courage and strength when struggling, and gives a way to express gratitude when all is well.
The most healthy way to eat is a way that FEELS good and satisfies you. Because health is so much more than what’s on your plate.
We love that superfoods are multi-taskers—foods brimming with various disease-fighting nutrients, usually without providing too many calories, and delivered in a delicious form. Easy-to-eat, easy-to-find, everyday “super” foods to keep eating healthy simple.
Superfoods are incredibly nutritious, whole foods that offer a wide arrange of essential micronutrients in high quantities, like vitamins and minerals that are needed for our bodies to run smoothly and stay disease-free.
Along with essential nutrients, superfoods can heal because they contain very potent and unique compounds beyond vitamins and minerals that protect the immune system and even kill harmful bacteria in our guts.
These news-worthy compounds like antioxidants, sulforaphanes, and healthy anti-inflammatory fats are just another reason why these foods are so super.
