Health Alchemy Kitchen is a collaboration between Health Alchemy Nutritional Service and For Life! Personal Chef service. Our intention is to provide the community with the highest quality nutrient dense cuisine using locally sourced products. We look to the seasons, the teachings of the old nutritional masters,Weston A. Price, Bernard Jensen, and Royal Lee among others, Herbal Wisdom, and our own extensive study of nutrition to bring you food that will help heal you.
Traditional wisdom advises us to eat a diet of local, fresh, organic, and seasonal food including lots of vegetables and fruit, raw forms of dairy products, eggs and meats from animals raised in a pasture with access to fresh air, grass, and a natural diet. Fermented vegetables and beverages are encouraged. This diet flies in the face of the Standard American Diet and actively encourages people to eat animal fat ( from good sources) in the form of butter, lard, and tallow, as well as oils such as coconut oil, flax, and hemp oils, and high quality olive oil.
