Did you know that the cacao bean is the most revered of all rainforest foods? Cacao is the most pharmacologically complex food source known in the Amazon jungle, containing an estimated 1,200 individual chemical constituents (according to Joel Brenner’s research in her book The Emperors of Chocolate)! Because cacao amplifies the effects of other medicines it is the perfect delivery system for herbs and superfoods. Chocolate contains anti-oxidants, magnesium, tryptophan and other unknown neurotransmitter modulating agents which support the reduction of stress and depression and enhancement of pleasure. Come participate in the excitement of how to make your own raw organic chocolate as a medicine with healthy sweeteners like raw honey, mesquite, and lucuma. We will be adding in various herbs and superfoods along with Lord Cacao’s wife Vanilla to make the best chocolate ever. All ingredients are organic, non-GMO and pesticide-free. Attendees will be given some of the chocolate made in class to enjoy or take home. Your view of chocolate will change forever.
