One of the main questions I'm asked is 'how do you eat all that chocolate and stay so skinny?' I always reply that I eat artisan chocolate instead of commercial chocolate, and live a healthy lifestyle. Many people have asked for more details, and I'll share them with you! Hear my tips on chocolate-enhanced wellness, presented in a fun and uplifting way, including: the number 1 ingredient to beware of in commercial chocolate, how to decode chocolate bar labels and identify the right kind of artisan chocolate, how to make sure there's no child slave labor in your chocolate as there is in most commercial chocolate bars, how to maximize chocolate's health benefits, how to avoid GMOs and artificial ingredients, what "natural ingredients" are and why they sometimes mean you should back away from the shelf, how to taste and enjoy fine chocolate - which we'll do at the talk! - and more! Audience members will have an opportunity to examine different chocolate bars as we talk through what the ingredients mean. Then we'll do a chocolate tasting of the best picks.
