#ChocolateIsAHealthFood: Dietitians Learn to Make Chocolates
There’s a reason I’m called The Chocoholic Nutritionist!
The Health Stand Nutrition team of nutritionists had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with THE Bernard Callebaut, master chocolatier to practice the science of making chocolate. Chocolate is part of a healthy diet: the key to a healthy lifestyle is to enjoy ALL food and LIVE DELICIOUSLY! This means choosing healthy food that will keep you healthy for the long-term and productive through your day. This also means saving room for soulful fun foods chosen for taste and enjoyment.
