Interview with Birgitte Rasine on Cacao

On July 12, 2016 Birgitte Rasine and I had a great interview in my weekly coaching webinar. Please see below and forward to those who may be interested.

Birgitte and I discussed the health benefits of cacao and natural chocolate, suggested fun ways to integrate chocolate into your daily meals and snacks, and talked about how she uses chocolate to inspire children (and parents) everywhere to think systemically and reconnect with the origins of the foods we eat and the ecosystems those foods come from.

Birgitte is an award-winning author, journalist, producer, and entrepreneur whose work marries sustainability with storytelling, mobile apps with print books, and art with technology. She is the author of numerous literary works and articles, and has spoken on topics ranging from media to sustainability on three continents. Birgitte’s books and mobile apps have been recognized by design and publishing awards and honors from organizations such as the Eric Hoffer Award, International Academy of Visual Arts in Los Angeles, Press 53, and the Alliance of Independent Authors.
