There are numerous recipes that can be refined with CBD. Almost all of them are very tasty, which is why it was really hard for us to pick out a special recipe. But don't worry, there will be many more recipes in the future, so there is something for everyone. After all, as we all know, taste is relative. That's why we would like to present our favourite today, the chicken curry with CBD.
Where does curry come from?
Curry is actually a spice mixture from India. Each family has its own spice blend, which means that there is no such thing as "the" curry. Therefore, you will not find a traditional spice mixture in India. Here, many individual spices are mixed to get one's curry.
Actually, the spice mixture is modelled on the masalas, as they are called in India. In our latitudes, masalas in particular are available, which are a spice mixture for making curry dishes. Of course, it is also possible to put together your own mixture individually.
Why is chicken curry so interesting for the diet?
Chicken offers a large amount of protein, but beans are also full of vegetable protein and also have important and healthy fibre on board. They also contain vitamin B2, B6 and beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A by the body. At the same time, beans also contain minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium.
Carrots, on the other hand, have a high beta-carotene content. But carrots also contain vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E as well as folic acid and niacin. In terms of minerals, the beans score highly with potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. But the fibre and carbohydrate content is not to be sneezed at either.
Bell peppers, on the other hand, contain a lot of vitamins A, B and C, and just 25 g of red bell peppers cover the daily vitamin C requirement. But the vegetable also contains valuable plant substances that have antiseptic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It also has potassium, calcium and magnesium.
This is why the combination with CBD oil is so good
In combination with CBD oil, the different vegetables as well as the meat are an excellent complement and they support each other. Inflammations can be inhibited, something good is done for the skin and the eyes also benefit from the dish. At the same time, pain can be reduced and the immune system strengthened, as the body receives numerous vitamins and important nutrients.
Another plus point is that many do not like the taste of CBD oil very much. By using it in food, the taste is toned down and you can still benefit from the cannabinoids. Cannabidiol, after all, is said to have a calming and relaxing effect and as we all know, the best way to relax is over a good meal with family or friends.
But CBD oil in food can also be an important helper for other ailments. Especially for chronic pain. With cannabidiol drops, it is recommended not to take too much of it, as less is more. If you have already taken a few drops against the pain in the morning, you should usually wait a few hours until the next dose is due. To put this into perspective, the CBD drops can also be added to food. This way, the dose is not too high and you can delay the time for the next intake considerably.
But now we don't want to keep anyone in suspense any longer and go straight to the recipe. Of course, we have tried it ourselves so that we too can have our say and know that it really is delicious. We love it and therefore don't want to withhold it from anyone.
