We are always looking for new and creative ways to reinvent our diets and meal plans, innovations that will spark an ongoing interest, and recipes or baked creations that will be delicious but get the kids’ approval too, and for us, this was CBD oil.
I can honestly and proudly say I can cook a mean roast, ribs that sacrifice themselves to you on your plate, but when it comes to sweets, baked goods, or desserts I seem to struggle, much to my perfectionist annoyance. I was determined to change this after reading for hours on end just how many CBD users successfully incorporated the oil into their brownies, cookies, and even smoothies.
The sweet-tooth journey begins.
We had been reading online a lot about CBD before deciding to go ahead with it –a day that will never be forgotten or not spoken about to anyone and everyone we meet – and with so many success stories of customers who believed they were completely down on their luck after exhausting all thought-of options, we jumped straight in.
I ordered the products online as well as a couple of CBD recipe books to try out and which would soon expect the family to volunteer as guinea pigs for in my trial and error phase. I looked through, read up on, and marked the pages of what I knew to be my children’s and hubby’s favorite dessert treats and headed to the grocery store to buy the rest of the ingredients.
You see, CBD not only ‘cured’ me essentially from years of chronic knee pain, but I began to live and feel a freedom I hadn’t had in decades. It may just be an ‘oil’ to some people, but cbd gave us the quality of life we longed for.
I knew the kids wouldn’t want to take on the responsibility of dedicating themselves to taking the oil daily, but we all know no child will deny a gooey chocolate brownie or lemon drizzle cookie in their lunch box.
If it wasn’t added into the baked goods or soaked into the cookie shapes as they came out of the oven, I experimented and practiced making home-made DIY versions of gummy sweets which went down just as well. Some batches worked others not so much, but the enjoyment of the journey with the bonus of knowing the family was reaping the benefits of this hemp flower made it all worthwhile.
My kids may not notice it personally, but my husband commented that the kids seemed to have an overall sense of happiness, their morale was up and the majority of the time they were in a great mood, we all were. And before anyone begins on their nay-sayer speech CBD contains no mind or mood-altering chemicals or substances, one of the major appeal factors that began our adventure.
When the bodily functions are working harmoniously, signals to and from the brains’ neuro-system help manage and maintain the pulses being sent around the muscles and joints, there is little to zero build-up, thus, in turn, no inflammation, and inevitably no pain. Win, win-win.

This plant is increasing in popularity daily, don’t get left behind.
There is always an option.
While you may not enjoy the sweet side of the meal plan rather opting for a savory factor this doesn’t mean you need to feel discouraged because you are more in luck than you might realize. The online recipe world is endless, the possibilities are limited to your imagination, and the quicker you try your hand at something new the faster you will reap the rewards.
Let us take a brief look at some options that are great for beginners, tried and tested by home cooks and new users like yourself, and to set you off on your new chapter in life and headed in the right direction.
- Scones. Herb and extra-matured cheddar cheese scones with a generous helping of butter and a sprinkle of Himalayan salt will complement any soup in the winter. Soak a few drops of CBD oil onto the top of them as they come out of the oven steaming and whispering to you to eat them immediately, and your meal is set.
- Jerky. I grew up in a country where this was a staple in the home, and now with this simplified version (click here so you don’t miss out) and with the advantage of being CBD infused it is a must. Lasting up to 2 weeks in a container it is a great late-night movie snack.
Besides the fact that you get your dose of CBD in a tasty couple of hand full of dried meat, it sets you up ready for a great night’s sleep. Cannabidiol users have reported a deeper, more restful sleep with fewer to no midnight awakenings, and waking up in the morning fresh and aware.
- Salad. Easy, simple, and infusing CBD into the oil that you’ll be dressing your garnish with, no-one will be the wiser. Complimented with a few chili flakes you will be enjoying a newfound love for food.
The fact that there is something for everyone, all age demographics, and palates, makes this product that much more sought after.
