Do this and see how different your day is…
Mornings with Cacao instead of Coffee!
Cacao, raw, pure cacao! OMW… it has changed my day!
So a few years ago I did attend a few Ceremonial Cacao gatherings, and they were powerful.
Like any regular ritual that you commit to do with clear intention and for the greater good of all! You will get amazing results in all areas of your life.
I do Juice4Joy and I do my days that way, have for years…9 now to be exact, however I still have a few vices, one is coffee! Oh I love coffee…fresh ground, prepared at home, and I use a plunger. Gluten free Oat milk from @soma, they really do make the best plant based milk. I do encourage wherever possible to go #glutenfree.
So recently I felt drawn back to Cacao – I had a block of Ceremonial Cacao that I got many years ago (it is still good) @keithscacao which is not available in this country sadly, but hey we still got some really good options. Just be sure is 100% pure, read the label. You can get good options @Jacksonsrealfoodmarket as well as @faithfulltonature
The secret to this is to let this be your first hot beverage each day, after your @juice4Joy 🙂
When you find yourself reaching for the coffee, STOP! Change direction and go to the cacao, you will thank me and you will thank yourself.
You can have your coffee later (obviously I discourage coffee after lunch time).
So the best way to make the best Cacao is:
If it is powder, I take 3 teaspoons, add it to a mug of plant based milk
Now if you want it to be low in calories, you can do half plant based milk and half boiled water.
The real secret is the rest of the ingredients 🙂
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
pinch of cumin
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon of Coconut blossom sugar (I am not big on sugar, so you can leave this out if you like)
DON’T BOIL your cacao concoction, stir gently on a mild heat till is dissolved, when you are stirring, drop into your heart, find your gentleness, embrace gratitude and love. If anything or anymore comes up in your heart and thoughts, send love, forgiveness, joy! Think on your dreams and desires, what you want to attract into your life, the experiences and how you want to feel, allow them to expand and infuse with your Cacao drink.
When it is ready, pour into your mug, go and sit quietly somewhere, maybe in your beautiful garden, or looking out enjoying the view, and sip mindfully on your Cacao, feel it seep into your body, feel its calmness, its gentleness, its encouragement, its joy.
Let me know how you go…REACH OUT if you are feeling drawn ton change some stuff in your life for the better. It will be a privilege to work with you.
