One of the most notable and inevitable side effects of consuming cannabis is the munchies. The munchies don’t come gradually but in a swift and sudden barrage of intense hunger pangs that must be indulged in that very instant. The cravings can hit so hard that we often find ourselves shamelessly shoveling the most unhealthy concoctions down our gullets. But in the spirit of responsible consumption for both food and cannabis, let’s explore some healthy alternatives promise to satisfy your pallet and promote a healthy diet.
Whether you are a regular consumer or the occasional user, these snacks don’t require preparation ahead of time. You’ll be able to whip these up and devour them in the heat of the moment without experiencing that lingering feeling of guilt.
Raw veggies and ranch dip is the quintessential healthy snack. For a healthier dip version, mix a ranch dressing packet with sour cream and eat with your favorite vegetables.
These are super easy to make! Just throw some chips on a foil-lined baking sheet, sprinkle with shredded cheese, and cooked seasoned ground beef. Place in the oven at 350° for about 6 minutes until the cheese is melted. Once finished, let cool and enjoy with your favorite salsa and sour cream.
French fries can be healthier if you don’t actually fry them and are sensible with the seasonings. Slice some russet potatoes, place on a foil-lined baking sheet, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle some salt, pepper or any seasoning you enjoy. Place in the oven at 400° and bake for 40 minutes until browned and crispy. Once they are done, let them briefly cool and enjoy your homemade french fries!
Hummus is a versatile dip. It comes in a wide range of flavors and tastes great on anything like vegetables and pita chips! There are several choices and assortments available for purchase at your local grocery store. However, you can certainly make your own if you are brave enough. Just blend together the following ingredients:
Add some flair to any standard boring ol’ rice cake! If you take a plain rice cake, spread some peanut butter on it and place some sliced bananas on top, you will have an effortless and yummy snack that hits all the right sweet and salty notes.
This recipe is incredibly simple. All it requires is to thinly sliced cucumbers and letting them marinate in vinegar and oil. You can prepare it before you smoke, and by the time the munchies hit, take them out of the marinade, sprinkle some salt and pepper and feta cheese. It’s a nice and refreshing yet simple snack that’ll gratify any of your tangy sour cravings.
Popcorn that is air-popped is healthier than anything you’ll pop in the microwave. It also serves as a blank canvas for any of your preferred seasonings or toppings. Whether you’re craving something salty or sweet, always drizzle over it with some melted butter. Then, either sprinkle some salt or just toss with 1 tsp powdered sugar and 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa for a sweet kick.
Oatmeal is a great option for a healthy and filling snack. It’s also flexible because it can be turned into a savory or sweet treat! For a sweet taste, add brown sugar and fruit. For a savory option, add a fried egg with some spinach, and some salt and pepper.
If you’re interested in a low carb snack, try this! Lay several slices of pepperonis on a baking sheet. Then, sprinkle with a little shredded cheese and bake at 400° for 10 minutes until the pepperonis slices are crisp and slightly curled.
Who doesn’t love chocolate! Ok, so chocolate is not usually considered to be quite that healthy but if you use dark chocolate, it has some known health benefits. This snack is super easy if you use chocolate melting wafers. They can be melted using a double boiler method or even in the microwave. Once melted, you can dip a variety of things such as pretzels, marshmallows, or fruit. You even use as a sauce to drizzle as well!
Guacamole tastes the best when it’s homemade. You’ll only need 2 whole ripe avocados, a handful of chopped onions and tomatoes, 1 chopped garlic clove, a pinch of salt and pepper, and a half of a lime’s worth of juice. Mix it all together and there you have some phenomenal guac ready to be devoured with your favorite tortilla chips.
All you need to make this snack is a bowl or jar full of vanilla yogurt and your favorite fruits. Yogurt is a great source of protein and when combined with fruit, it can be super filling! If you like a little extra crunch, add some tasty granola or toasted coconut flakes.
