As a food writer, Domini has long been interested in healthy eating, but cancer, and a consultation with Patricia to learn how to manage it, set her off in a whole new direction: nutrient-dense, low-carb food, and its benefits for overall health, whether you’ve cancer or not. Her café, Alchemy, has pioneered this approach in Dublin and won her many fans along the way.
The Ketogenic Kitchen is about sharing what we’ve learned (and what we’ve learned has worked) as we delve deeper into the science of nutrition and explore its complex and illuminating relationship with human health, both physical and mental.
It’s also our promise to you to keep on the case – to keep researching and learning the ‘science bit’, and then testing and tasting the results: tasty, nutritious food to get you well and help you stay well, together with all the other things we know are good for us: exercise, sleep, stay away from cigarettes and – perhaps most importantly – stay connected to friends and family.
The Ketogenic Kitchen……..the clue is in the name.We can’t talk about us without explaining how we first met and why we later decided to collaborate on The Ketogenic Kitchen.
So, what brings together a food writer/restaurateur (Domini) and a nutritional therapist (Patricia)?
The answer is cancer – and a real passion for food. We’ve both had cancer twice, and when we found that conventional nutritional advice failed adequately to support our treatment via the usual means of radiation and chemotherapy, we both independently decided to look elsewhere for answers.
Instinctively, we felt that the fast-developing science of nutrition was the place to look. And so it has proven, at least for us.
For Patricia it meant a change of career – from a banker to a nutritional therapist specialising in cancer, specifically the use of the ketogenic diet (low carb/high fat). Through her website, www.patriciadaly.com, she helps and teaches people around the world.
Check out her unique online learning resource at www.ketoforyou.com as well. There’s something for everybody- whether you’re just starting out or a more advanced practitioner, whether you prefer learning on your own or online with a small group and direct access to Patricia.
