Grilling on Father's Day for a Healthy and Happy Celebration
by Maddison Ballard
Each year as Fathers Day comes back around, I continue to struggle with the stress of finding the perfect gift for dad. I am always looking for new ways to connect with my father on this special day and this year, I have been inspired by Populum to give dad everything he deserves. I am here to give you a few tips on how to make this Father's Day a healthy one for you and dad.
Go for a walk, just the two of you.
Get outside with dad this Father's Day and enjoy a walk together. Connect through conversation while also enjoying some healthy exercise. The New York Times reports that studies have found a ten-minute walk can “immediately alter how certain parts of the brain communicate and coordinate with one another and improve memory function.” So why not give dad the gift of mental clarity this year?
Cook with him.
There is nothing that brings people together more than food. Bond with dad this Father’s Day over cooking a nutritious meal that is amplified by CBD. Cooking with Populum adds extra dimension, especially because there’s an abundance of omega-3’s in Populum’s CBD oil. I decided to create an orange ginger grilling sauce with Populum's Orange + CBD Raw Honey, and I added it to a salmon dish. Omegas are also super prevalent in fish and can promote optimal neurological health!
If you don't have Populum's Orange + CBD Raw Honey on hand, you can substitute for regular honey and a full dropper of Populum’s 500 mg tincture, which also has an orange citrus flavor profile.
Try this recipe I made on Salmon, Chicken, veggies or whatever dad wants (recipe below).
Reminisce on old memories together.
Does your dad have boxes of old photos just gathering dust? Ask him to take them out and share memories with you this Father's Day. Whether they’re ones you share or you learn something new about him, it can feel extremely fulfilling and bring you closer together. Want to go the extra mile? Bring photo frames, choose some photos that bring you both happy memories, and put them on display at his home.
