Cacao is an amazing superfood. It has been known as the nectar of the God’s. Cacao beans have even been used as currency in the past due to their value.
Cacao has rich in magnesium, iron, phosphorous, calcium, zinc, potassium, copper, manganese, antioxidants, vitamin B/C/E, and many other beneficial properties.

I am so excited to share with you my daily insights.
So great book I am reading, “The Desire Map” by Danielle LaPorte. My biggest take away at this point is regarding goal setting. I am so grateful go now be considering the feelings I want to have then creating goals that will help invoke those feelings. GENIUS!! I guess this is why so many people have read this book. I highly recommend if nothing else to consider before you set goals instead write down the feelings you want to create then set goals that will get you there.
I am so excited to be learning the power of being consistent. This has not been historically my strong suit. For over a year now I have been super consistent in my social media platforms and it has felt incredible to see the growth that has ensued from such consistent action. I am so excited. I pray for you to know and actualize the power of being consistent it is truly amazing!!.
I am trying coffee by Four Sigmatic This coffee has mushrooms in it. Not hallucinogenic mushrooms but superfood mushrooms. I am currently sipping the “Mushroom Coffee Mix with Lion’s Mane and Chaga” The claims surrounding this coffee are pretty significant. For me, I like it because I do not get the acidic feel I get from coffee. No jitters. It has half the amount of caffiene It tastes good and feels better to me. I am one week in and will be trying the other products for sure. https://us.foursigmatic.com/collections/mushroom-coffee
So I did yoga this morning and Zumba. This is huge for me as it is not second nature for me to exercise. Guess what? After exercising I wanted either tacos or a breakfast burrito…. and not the healthy kind. Since I am super committed to being as healthy as possible while enjoying yummy food I took myself home. I got creative and this is what I came up with…..
Mushroom and collard greens red chili tacos !
They were awesome and yummy and easy to make.
tsp olive oil
1 tsp red chili powder (New Mexico Chili if available)
1 tsp cumin
Sea salt to taste
2 tbl water
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 onion chopped
1 cup of mushrooms sliced
1 cup of collard greens chopped
Heat pan. Add olive oil then garlic, onion, and mushrooms. Stir fry until mushrooms soften. Add cumin, red chili, sea salt, and water. Mix for two minutes then add collard greens. If needed at a little more water just enough so that spices are not sticking to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes or less. I like my greens vibrant green and with some life still in them but this is up to you.
Serve your taco makings with some corn tortillas and add a little of your favorite salsa and you are golden!
This was so awesome and yummy I am super excited about it! Let me know any variations you make and if you like it!! Wishing you well.

Do you ever get really excited about a new idea? You then mentally picture all the things you want to do to complete your idea. Then you get to the doing and feel overwhelmed by all the things necessary to get done and you try to do all the things you envisioned but before long you decide to give up because it just seems daunting.
