No Bread Antipasto Baked Rollups

If there is something that keeps you away from the antipasto baked roll, it’s the fact that the bread that comes with it is not keto-friendly. The good news is that you can enjoy antipasto salad without necessarily risking your keto diet measures by doing away with bread.

What you need for the easy-to-make, meat-rich meal includes roasted red pepper hummus, red pepper (sliced lengthwise), chopped roasted red pepper, bacon, turkey, ham, and provolone cheese slices.

How To Make:

Line your baking tray with parchment paper and place it in the oven preheated at 350°F. Next, place the bacon slices on the baking pan side by side lengthwise and on top of the bacon slices. Layer your ham followed by turkey slices.

Introduce the roasted red pepper hummus by spreading it on top of the turkey followed by adding provolone cheese slices. From there, roll up and place your mixture in the oven for 10 minutes or wait for the bacon to be crispy. Cut your antipasto salad into desired bite sizes and let it cool off. There you go. Enjoy a delicious antipasto baked roll without compromising your keto diet.

Cheesy Prosciutto Mozzarella Sticks

As a careful keto diet observer, you probably only eat pizza if it is fresh from the oven to ensure you do not deal with the crust. Well, you can enjoy it better with prosciutto mozzarella sticks without worrying about the possible increment in carbs. You simply need thin slices of prosciutto, mozzarella cheese sticks, and basil leaves. You can also make it more delicious by opting to dip it in marinara sauce.

How To Make:

Place the prosciutto on the cutting board and add basil leaf on top. At the end of the prosciutto slice, add a mozzarella cheese stick and roll up together to wrap it around a basil leaf and mozzarella cheese. Then, serve it with your favorite marinara dipping sauce.

Rich Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Square

Dessert is only amazing if it is sweet. If you love cheesecake, do not compromise your keto diet to satisfy your craving. Sweet and creamy keto blueberry lemon cheesecake is your go-to keto-friendly dessert.

For this dessert, you will need 3 egg yolks and five egg whites, 1 cup of cubed cream cheese, 2/3 cup of coconut oil, ½ cup of frozen blueberries, one tablespoon of zest lemon, ½ tablespoon baking powder, one teaspoon of vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of granulated stevia.

How To Make:

Line your 8-square pan with parchment paper and place it in the oven preheated at 320°F. Mix all the ingredients apart from blueberries. Use an electric beater to blend the mixture and pour it into the 8-square pan. Add the frozen blueberries to the mixture and allow them to sink slowly. Bake it for 25 minutes to the point where the center is cooked. From there, let it cool and cut it into squares. Serve and enjoy your keto-friendly cheesecake.

All you need to ensure that your Vietnamese food experience does not mess with your keto measures is to consider the ingredients. For instance, opt for bean sprouts instead of noodles and go for meat and veggies instead of rice.

Reports on Medical Marijuana Aired on Vietnam

The cultivation and use of marijuana, popularly known as Cannabis remain illegal in most countries including Vietnam. This plant is said to cause adverse effects on the mental health and emotions of the user. Nevertheless, some people still argue for medical cannabis and related products, including it cannabidiol. Here are some facts you should know about TV reports medical Marijuana in Vietnam:

First Report

This report was aired at 11.30 am. The report stated that “Medical Cannabis Vietnam” is a Facebook page that blatantly markets and sells this illegal substance. This claim emanated from an interview with a man whose son had been taken to Accident and Emergency Room (A & E) due to brain damage that resulted from the use of drugs, such as CBD Oil.

It is alleged that the man’s son had taken cannabis. This programme was followed by another interview with Mr. Pham Van Tru, the Vice President of Ho Chi Minh National Psychiatrist Hospital. According to Mr. Tru, there exists no sufficient evidence that cannabis cures cancer and is good for expectant mothers. He emphasized that prolonged use of Cannabis sativa alters the intellectual functioning of the brain. He concluded by emphasizing that Medical Cannabis is just a name used by the Facebook page to cover up illegal drug dealing.

Second report

This report was aired at 6.30 pm on the same day. In this report, the representatives of the drug administration in Vietnam state that morphine is the only substance produced from cannabis that is strictly allowed to be used in hospitals.

Additionally, Major Mai Van Linh, the deputy head of Ho Chi Minh City’s Police Office, stated that he had worked with medical officers and came to the conclusion that there is no scientific proof that marijuana can be used as a medicine. He concluded by emphasizing that any shape or form of this substance, including cannabidiol (CBD), is illegal under Vietnam’s law.

Thoughts from The Reports

From the initial report, we can see that despite VTV lacking sufficient evidence about medical cannabis, they still make invalid claims on national television. It is therefore incorrect to state that CBD oil (also called Rick Simpson Oil) has been verified by thousands of patients to help cure cancer. Furthermore, it is also wrong to state that morphine is obtained from opium and morphine from cannabis.

On a different note, a research done by Vietnam’s Bach Mai Hospital has proven that oil extracted from cannabis can help cure various types of cancer. Additionally, the success rate is reported to be very high, while zero negative side-effects have been recorded. These facts have been confirmed by new reports and daily studies and publications on RSO. For more information, you may refer to this article on CBD Oils.

There is much debate on the efficacy of cannabidiol in the treatment of a lot of ailments and conditions. Although its use has been legalized to a certain extent in some countries, it is up to a specific country to allow its citizens to use this product.  What can be done is for relevant agencies to conduct thorough medical and scientific research and clinical tests to establish its usefulness. Once this has been done, the results will serve as a valid basis into making it legal, especially for medical reasons.
