1)  Cashew Mindfulness – Cashews are not technically nuts. Instead, these morsels are the seed of a cashew apple.  Originally imported by the Portuguese to Goa in the 1500’s, cashew trees were propagated by elephants chowing down on the “apples” and then spreading the seeds. Every time you eat a cashew it was likely harvested and processed by hand in Vietnam, India or Cote d’Ivoire. We will save how we get milk from those bad boys for a future nugget. https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/different-colors-cashew-apples-seeds-on-1684241086

2) Speaking of mindfulness – Before Homo Sapiens developed language only 200,000 years ago it was not fully possible to contemplate events that happened in the past or might happen in the future.  Moreover, as toddlers our reactions and emotions were almost exclusively tied to our present environment. Thus, Nugz has been pondering if mindfulness is a more natural state and if Seneca is right, “We suffer more in imagination than in reality?”
