Vegan Chipotle Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos

Vegan Chipotle Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos

Ever since I gave up meat and started focusing on a plant based diet, I’ve been learning new ways to satisfy old cravings. These Vegan Chipotle Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos hit the spot when I’m craving something spicy, crunchy, and delicious. The crunch and density from the cauliflower make the meal feel hearty and filling. The olive oil and avocado make up for the bulk of the calories in healthy fats, and the chipotle buffalo spice gives it an amazing flavor profile that’s sure to put this on your menu’s regular rotation. 

Senior, Cannabis, Athlete - Breaking the Stigma

Senior, Cannabis, Athlete - Breaking the Stigma

Those are three words I would never have chosen to describe myself and yet this past year I realized that all three do indeed apply. So let's break it down.

Senior...at age 66 I absolutely find myself in that category. I believe my issue with owning up to it is that there's an image of seniors that I don't relate to. You know the retiring one that seems to move a bit slower and stops doing the things they used to do. I am thrilled to find that now that I have arrived, that image is bogus! I have met an amazing group of seriously seniors that are out there rocking their retirement...running, biking, sailing, hiking, climbing...you name it and they are doing it.

What Do You Want To Do For The Rest Of Your Life?

It's been just over a year since we started Mjfitnut. We started creating content on social media at first, and then we launched our website.

Sessions Will Lose the Battle, but Education is Key

Sessions Will Lose the Battle, but Education is Key

We have spent the last four decades being told about the dangers of marijuana, Reefer Madness, Just Say No, DARE, we’ve heard it all. However, what the government has failed to do is tell us about the benefits when it is used properly. Let me tell you what cannabis actually can do…

Cannabis Resolutions

Cannabis Resolutions

Whether we consume cannabis or not, we should all pledge to learn more about the plant. Cannabis and cannabis use will continue to have stigmas until we get smart about our approach to this medicinal herb. Through educating ourselves, and teaching others what we learn, the stigmas will slowly dissolve. Plus, there is a growing demand for the cannabis-savvy in the legal cannabis market.

YOU are Responsible for the Future of Legal Cannabis

Are YOU doing everything you can to protect the cannabis industry and someone’s miracle or are you going to remain complacent until the day YOU need a miracle and it’s no longer available for you because the generation who started the movement wasn’t responsible enough to handle it.

Cannabis: More than Medicine

Cannabis: More than Medicine

Cannabis provides a whole host of added benefits for the consumer whether its being used recreationally or not… the body doesn’t know the difference… it only knows it’s endocannabinoid system is happily humming along searching for road blocks on the road to perfect homeostasis.

From Felonies to Finance to Fitness

From Felonies to Finance to Fitness

I truly feel blessed and extremely fortunate to be alive today, and I attribute a great deal of this good fortune to cannabis. I wasn’t always the well behaved, friendly, and positive person I am today. I spent the majority of my life in a very dark place, especially as a child, and I’m lucky to have turned my life around. There was a time when I was on a road only leading to prison, death, or both. It was at this time I came to a crossroads, and I decided to change my life for the better.

The Wake-Up Call

The Wake-Up Call

... I knew I needed to make drastic changes in my life, or I wouldn’t survive another 5 years. At just 40 years old I was exhausted, overweight, unhealthy, and slowly killing myself through over-consumption of alcohol, nutrition-less food, and too many pharmaceuticals.

Marijuana and Dreams Part III

Marijuana and Dreams Part III

As a reminder -- the inspiration for this three-part series is to see how a smoke break following semi-regular smoking affects dreams. Below are four takeaways from this experiment.

1. Dreams are vivid.

My dreams, almost immediately, have become vivid and rememberable, with crystal clear images and scenes. I wake up in the morning or from a nap and have to recalibrate myself to the real world because the images in my dreams are so real. Sometimes I find myself wishing I didn't wake up because I'm so interested in the reel playing through my mind. On the same note, I find myself looking forward to

In completing the entire 420 Games 2017 National Tour, we got the chance to meet a lot of incredible people and businesses. One of which was Katina Morales, also known as Betty Khronic, which is the name of her company. Betty Khronic offers a selection of CBD and THC infused energy bars, made with raw, locally sourced, vegan ingredients. We had the pleasure of sampling the CBD bars at The 420 Games in LA.

Functional exercises

Functional exercises

I see a lot of people follow lifting schedules like this – they lift to work one muscle group each day of the week. I used to follow this type of schedule too. You will maybe get some results doing this, but there’s an incredibly more efficient way to get better results in the weight room.

Demand for Cannabis Education

The cannabis market is changing. As cannabis starts to merge into the health and wellness category, slowly losing the stereotypical images and stigmas, women and seniors are becoming a growing demographic. This shift in clientele is putting new demands on the cannabis industry.
