Smart Eating for Munchies Series Part 1, Breakfast and Morning Snacks

 

by Veronica Castillo

 

5 Breakfast and Morning Snack Options Focused on Health

There are some Cannabis strains out there that will increase, enhance, uplift- truly create what many call “the munchies. These strains carry a terpene profile that work in the body to create appetite. This is magical for some, but for others, this is no good.

But just like appetite enhancing strains, there are appetite suppressing strains. They really do exist, and the way to find them is to shop based on terpenes that cater to appetite suppressing. God Bud is one of those for me. 

For those of you that are struggling through the munchies- this series is for you. Some of us can’t pick up appetite suppressing strains because they don’t work for our conditions. I’m one of those people. I have chronic migraine and need extreme Sativa. Sativa always makes me hungry though so, I have to make good choices when the munchies strike. 

This series is dedicated to healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks options. Easy to create meals with a recipe guide. I have to say early on that this is a vegan series- as indicated but- have no fear. Plants are generally the best way to eat for many of us. Plant lifestyles are the way!
