If you could pick one food to live on for the rest of your life, what would it be?!
For me, it would be an easy choice - CACAO!
Not only is cacao one of the most nutritious superfoods on the planet (high in magnesium, antioxidants, iron, and has a great balance of carbs and healthy fats), it makes you feel amazing too!
The energetic benefits of cacao include heart-opening, increased clarity, intuition, focus, and creativity. Cacao enhances any spiritual practice (think mediation, writing, yoga, to name a few)... It is the perfect food! And is something I consume in a hot drink at least once a day, if not twice. It's too good not to! 🙂
I first became interested in Cacao at a plant medicine retreat in Peru, and have since traveled all over the Americas to find the best quality cacao and most interesting ceremonies. I started holding my first ceremonies with my friends on the beach in Playa del Carmen, Mexico - our group was called "Cacao Mamas," as a bunch of moms of young children would come together to enjoy a ceremony while our kids played in the sand. It was so much fun!
Things have certainly evolved since then - retreats, online ceremonies, holding sacred space around the world - but the essence is still the same. Sharing love, integrity, and joy in every cup of cacao served.
How do you use cacao? Let me know in the comments below.
