Just an aside here:

If you are worried about the job market, don't!  

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics states, "Employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 22 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Continued growth in the demand for massage services will lead to new openings for massage therapists."  
The Department of Veterans Affairs has classified massage therapy as a "high-demand occupation" and reclassified it as a program which qualifies under the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program

Cacao Pod

You just never know what you will find or who you will meet at your local farmers market!  This morning I was happy to meet Marcia who was in a booth selling cacao nibs and heavenly cacao paste in tubes.  She told me her story of going to Brazil and meeting the farmers who supply her company with raw material.  They gave her several fresh cacao pods to take home.  I was enthralled with her story and photos.  She had the paperwork to bring these into the US, but it was still a harrowing experience going through customs!  

I told her I teach classes about health and superfoods and I had just given a class about cacao.  I told her having one of these pods as a visual aid would be so great.  She had to think hard, but she graciously sold me one and then threw in a whole pile of the beans too.  Marcia also teaches classes about her products and we may be working together in the near future! 

Cacao is considered the raw material from which chocolate is made.  It is the fermented beans of the cacao pod, dried, then roasted, then ground into a paste with sugar and other ingredients to make the varieties of what we know as chocolate.  The raw cacao contains more than 300 different chemical compounds and nearly four times the antioxidant power of your average dark chocolate - more than 20 times than that of blueberries. Protein, calcium, carotene, thiamin, riboflavin, magnesium, sulfur, flavonoids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids are also present. This mix of elements have incredible benefits throughout the body, such as lowered LDL cholesterol, improved heart function, and reduced cancer risk.  Maybe you're getting the picture of why it is considered a superfood!

You MUST get to your local farmers market.  The most interesting people and products can be found there!
