Pudding, Politics, and Marijuana

Happy Monday, Earthlings! I’m looking forward to a great week, and I hope you are too. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I find my week goes better when I spend some time over the weekend prepping meals.

Yesterday, I bought fresh food at the farmer’s market, strained the 3 gallons of bone broth that my boyfriend and I started simmering the day before, roasted a couple of butternut squash to purรฉe, and whipped up eight servings of the medicated chia pudding I’m holding in this picture.

The ingredients are full fat coconut milk, medjool dates, honey, cannabis-infused coconut oil, vanilla powder, collagen protein, and chia seeds. It’s delicious! Very healthy, and the pudding is so flavorful, with just the right amount of sweetness, that I don’t even taste the weed.

As I’ve mentioned before, I use medical cannabis daily to help heal my intestinal and autoimmune conditions. It has been a fantastic partner in my healing journey — I wouldn’t be alive without it — and I’m passionate about advocating for the legalization of marijuana, as a result of my neurobiological training and my personal experience.

Nevada has a ballot initiative this November by which citizens can vote to legalize marijuana. If you are a Nevada resident, please register to vote and vote YES on the initiative.

If you’re not a Nevada resident, there may be a similar ballot initiative in your state’s upcoming elections.

No matter where you live (if you live in the United States), be very aware of political candidates’ positions on marijuana rescheduling and marijuana legalization. FYI: the only presidential candidate who supports rescheduling and decriminalizing marijuana is Bernie Sanders.

So, #FeelTheBern. I am.

Cannabis-Infused Chia Vanilla Pudding
Place all ingredients except the chia seeds in a high speed blender and process for 30-60 seconds (depending on how powerful your blender). You want it smooth, and it’s okay if the mixture gets a little warm.

Then, add the chia seeds and process on high again for 15-30 seconds.

Pour the pudding into eight small containers. They should contain a heaping 1/2 cup a piece. Seal the containers and refrigerate for 2 hours. Serve the pudding topped with fresh berries. If eating with a meal, for best absorption enjoy the pudding as a first course. Kept refrigerated, the pudding will stay delicious for about a week.

I eat two pudding cups a day — one in the morning and one in the afternoon — but that’s the dosage that works for me. You have to find the dosage that works for you.

So! That’s the pudding. Enjoy! And, if you’d like to read some articles about marijuana legalization and the shake-my-head hypocrisy of those government mafiosos opposing legalization, check out this link, AND VOTE!!!
