Receptra CBD holiday salad with pomegranates

CBD Recipe for the Perfect Holiday Salad

Ingredients:

Arugula and/or Spinach Mix

Leafy greens including spinach, arugula, and others are superstars of the food world. They are low in calories, but high in vitamins, fiber, and phytonutrients which can support the immune system, weight control and overall health. Arugula has a more distinct flavor than spinach, so be sure to choose what speaks to your tastebuds.  

Goat cheese crumbles (optional)

Goat cheese is a great way to get much-needed calcium and protein in your diet, along with probiotics. One ounce of goat cheese can have as much as 6 grams of protein per serving. Did you that goat cheese also has less lactose and fat than cows milk? That being said, blue cheese is a viable substitute if goat cheese isn’t your thing. 

Apple slices 

An apple a day keeps the doctor away and provides a sweet crunch to this beautiful holiday salad recipe. Apples contain manganese, copper, and vitamins A, E, B1, B2, and B6. To get the most benefits, leave the skin on. That is where the most fiber is found. 

Pomegranate seeds

Pomegranates are considered one of the healthiest foods on Earth. Pomegranate seeds (also called arils) are very sweet, with one cup containing 24 grams of natural sugar. They have an impressive nutrient profile and one cup of pomegranate arils contains 30% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of Vitamin C and 36% of the RDI of Vitamin K as well as powerful antioxidants

Diced chicken

Protein is extremely important, especially during the holidays when everyone is busy filling up on carbs from cookies and candies. One cup of diced chicken contains 38g of protein, which makes it an important part of your family meal. Shrimp is also a good meat protein substitute for this holiday salad recipe.   

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Mix in the desired amount of Receptra CBD 

Receptra Naturals CBD

What is salad without dressing and what is dressing without Receptra CBD? Receptra Naturals tinctures also contain MCT oil which has a plethora of health benefits including increased energy and fat-burning potential. The benefits of CBD oil are countless. The antioxidant qualities of CBD meshed with the other great ingredients in this delicious CBD salad dressing make for an amazing healthy combination.

CBD Recipe for the Holidays

Adding Receptra CBD to your holiday salad or other food and drinks is a great way to incorporate the benefits of CBD to your meal, which will hopefully include less bickering at the table and better rest. As with any CBD recipe, make sure you inform everyone that CBD is present in the dish.  You may also consider using Receptra Elite 0% THC to make sure that everyone is comfortable with your tincture choice.
