Sweet Beginnings to Start Your New Year Off Right

Every once in a while, I take my mornings off and wake and bake; and, when I say “wake and bake,” I literally mean I wake up at 7am, preheat the oven and start baking (of course while smoking my morning joint). Here are three recipes I enjoy on these special occasions that are delicious, filling and easy! All infused with Ambrosia’s Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil, making it easier to micro-dose and or substitute ingredients without skimping on taste or texture, giving each dish a perfect, subtle taste. Let’s start cooking!

Keira Fae discovered the healing powers of the cannabis plant in 2014, after suffering from a debilitating illness. Rather than taking a handful of different pharmaceuticals, she decided to smoke all natural medical cannabis instead. The instant improvement to her health, the return of her appetite, increased energy and complete pain relief inspired her to figure out how to cook with cannabis to help herself and those she cared about. After just a couple of years, Fae founded her own infused edibles company in collaboration with Weedmaps, and began to film and disseminate step-by-step instructional video guides on how to cook with cannabis.

She now also offers an infused oil line called Ambrosia’s Oils, with a 1:1 THC:THCa. Fae believes it’s imperative that patients know what they are putting into their bodies and also understanding what cannabis can do for their overall health. For more information check out KeiraFae.com.
