GlutenFree Chocolate Fudge

Most people are chocolate fans, and why not, chocolate in moderation is actually very good for you; especially in the raw cacao form.  The cacao bean dates back to at least the 1400’s in Central and South America and was used as a tasty god-like elixir, for medicinal uses and an additive to food.

The cacao bean in its original form is very bitter tasting, but is surrounded by a very sweet and juicy pulp we rarely hear about.  This pulp is also used in the same ways the bean is, taking some of the bite out of the bean when mixed together.

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. She has a Bachelors of Science from Illinois State and is working on her second degree at Metropolitan State University in Denver, in the Nutrition & Dietetics program. After graduation, she will pursue certification towards becoming a Registered Dietitian.

Kirsten was diagnosed w/ Celiac disease in 2010, her goal is to provide a path for healthy living to individuals who are seeking a tailored made lifestyle specific to them and their needs.

Kirsten believes that “everyone is different, there’s not one diet that can work for everyone. “Diet to me means short-term, so let’s change diet into ‘lifestyle change’ instead and think long-term. Make healthier decisions not just today but for the years ahead of us as well.”

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from grocery shopping and social events, to deglutening your own household. Kirsten will help you walk you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
