Publishers Text

Jessica Fenton introduces the delicious flavors, health benefits, and versatility of raw chocolate in this beautifully illustrated and informative recipe book. Dispelling the common myth that chocolate is unhealthy, these easy-to-follow recipes for drinks, cookies, cakes, candies, desserts, and party food offer tantalizing ways to boost anti-oxidants and improve overall health. A comprehensive introduction to raw chocolate, from its history to its abundant nutritional benefits, shows why it is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to junk food. For those who want all the benefits of chocolate without the downside—calories, fat, and sugar—Raw Chocolate Treats opens a new world of healthy enjoyment. In addition to the recipes, the book includes a wealth of resource material such as a section on health benefits, a guide to ingredients, and a discussion of equipment. The author provides numerous kitchen tips and a code that indicates the skill level required for each recipe. As diabetes and obesity reach epidemic proportions, millions are looking for alternatives to desserts and sweets that are high in sugar and fat. This book makes a strong case for the health benefits of raw chocolate, which has 7x the antioxidants of dark chocolate. The author explains the powerful medicinal and health benefits of raw chocolate, including that it's one of the highest food sources of magnesium, can reduce blood pressure, aids in liver detoxification, and has no cholesterol. The recipes contain only trace amounts of caffeine and are suitable for vegetarians, vegans, raw foodists, people with diabetes or hyperglycemia, and those on a low-calorie, gluten- and sugar-free diet.
