The Many Benefits of CBD
CBD is one of more than 100 different “cannabinoids” naturally found in hemp and cannabis. It is generally extracted from hemp that has high levels of CBD and little to no THC.
For CBD Isolate, as used here in this recipe, all traces of THC are fully removed.
CBD can regulate pain, inflammation, the immune system, mood and thinking. By supplementing our bodies with plant-sourced cannabinoids we can help our bodies to alleviate such issues as pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders and it’s even known for its skincare benefits. By supplying our body with cannabinoids, we are helping our body to restore a state of natural balance.
Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is a staple ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. Tahini is considered healthy for several reasons.
Sesame seeds are a rich source of healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are important for heart health and brain function.
Tahini also contains fiber, protein, and various vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, and magnesium. It’s naturally gluten-free and vegan and can be used as a substitute for dairy-based products in recipes, making it a versatile ingredient in plant-based cooking.
What Are The Benefits of Almond Flour?
Almond flour is made from ground almonds and is rich in nutrients. Almonds are a good source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They’re especially high in vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium, which are important for bone health, immune function, and muscle function.
Almond flour is lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fiber than wheat flour, making it a great option for people following a low-carb or ketogenic diet. It’s naturally gluten-free, making it a safe option for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
Blood sugar-friendly: Almond flour has a low glycemic index, meaning it doesn’t cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels like wheat flour does. This makes it a great option for people with diabetes or anyone looking to maintain stable blood sugar levels.
