Talamancan Gardens & local Organic Farmers market
We are very happy to support this very good cause for good health with organic vegetables & fruit from our local farmers. On top of using our own garden fruits & herbs, we also buy from the local farmers who are passionate about their organic products.
This is their story:
Cocoa beans, in their raw form, may be purchased at health stores. It is possible to purchase and consume them in that manner however many people find it difficult to deal with the harsh, bitter taste. Luckily there is a more pleasant tasting option, dark chocolate. There are specific characteristics that dark chocolate, selected for health, should contain: Healthy dark chocolate needs to have no less than 70% cacao. No milk or any other dairy products should be present in the chocolate as they inhibit the body's ability to absorb antioxidants. The chocolate should be made from cacao butter and not coconut or palm oil.
Chocolate is a tasty food source that we can enjoy all the more knowing that is has health benefits as well!
Mustn't forget to pick up some fresh honey cake & gingerbread!
After finishing our shopping ,its off to pick up some of Cahuita's patties. These little Jamaican spicy meat patties are the best in the whole country, thumbs down, you will find it hard to have anyone disagree with you. They are a MUST when visiting Cahuita. That with a little homemade mango chutney I make a home , just yummie!
One of those typical days in Cahuita, life just gets so hard sometimes!
Can it get any better!
