This is a recipe for all of you out there who need to get dinner on the table quickly, whether for a routine weekday evening or if friends are coming over for a meal. You don’t want to go the fast-food route but cooking from scratch isn’t happening. So, why not take advantage of some already prepared ingredients you can get at the supermarket?
With that in mind, I present to you my semi-homemade taco recipe. It’s easy, healthy-ish and is the perfect vehicle for adding cannabidiol (CBD). Because this dish includes guacamole, it’s easy to incorporate the hemp CBD oil of your choice. You don’t even have to infuse the whole dish. Serve the guacamole in individual ramekins so that you can mix in a personalized amount of CBD for each person.
We recommend stirring the CBD oil into the guacamole/avocado because you need to eat cannabinoids with fat in order to make them bioavailable. This ensures that your body can absorb more of the healing CBD than if you ate the CBD on its own.
For a fun party idea, set up a CBD bar with various CBD oils of different flavors, strengths and effects. Then, each of your guests can choose the infusion they want and mix it into their individual guacamole portion.
Depending on what you put them, tacos can either be pretty healthy or filled with too much fat and calories. If you’re set on a healthy taco, consider making some swaps like low-fat cheese instead of regular cheese and choosing leaner cuts of meat.
This recipe’s healthy highlights are the lean chicken and also avocado, whose health benefits include:
Instead of the traditional sour cream, this recipe calls for Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt has the same tang as sour cream, but with fewer calories and less fat. Greek yogurt’s pretty healthy, too, because it’s:
Then of course, there’s the CBD. Depending on which kind of CBD tincture you choose to include, these CBD-infused tacos can help you:
In the ingredients list we include one dropper of CBD oil per person, but of course you can increase or reduce that amount as needed. Everyone’s different when it comes to how much CBD is the right amount for them, so play around with dosing until you hit your sweet spot.
