National Pi Day and American Chocolate Week

Today, Sisters and Brothers, is National Pi Day.  This is a real holiday in that the US House of Representations designated this day in honor of the symbol pi which represents the relationship between a circle's width (called "diameter") and the distance around the circle (called "circumference") for those who may not have had geometry for a while.  This isn't officially related to anything chocolaty and we do all ready have a National Pie Day but a lot of geeks I know celebrate today by eating circular foods such as pizza pies and dessert pies.  Why not incorporate that into something chocolaty?  We certainly will.

This is also the first day of the "American Week of Chocolate" which last until March 20th which is always the 3rd week of March.  So you can use this as a reason to have something chocolate every day but remember: Moderation and Purposefulness.  Try some fat free chocolate milk or high fiber bars for breakfast that have chocolate -- read the labels and make sure it is chocolate and not simply flavorings -- YUCK!

If you do something celebrate either this day or this week, please leave us a comment.  We'd love to hear about it.

Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
