Make Your Own Raw Chocolate

What’s so great about chocolate?  Chocolate not only boasts cancer-fighting antioxidants, it’s also rich in magnesium, iron, zinc and chromium.  Its natural oils help raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol. However, the caveat is after these oils are processed under high temperatures of heat, they turn to trans fatty acids.  Hence, think twice before grabbing that chocolate bar at the checkout stand as most chocolate is adulterated with “bad” fats, refined sugars and fillers. Instead, keep it raw.

The class will be taught by China’s Raw Food Authority, Jennifer McClelland. Jennifer is an eco chef and educator in raw food cuisine.  Combining her experience of growing up on an Idaho farm with her studies at the renowned Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, Jennifer is the face of a new generation of eco chefs who merge culinary arts with sustainable living.
