“Grandma” – alluding to the wisdom of the ancestors, “Alchemy” – promising transmutation and transformation, The Kitchen is where it all happens! Food is medicine. Some say there is no disease, only deficiency and toxicity. So how can we make sure we are nourished and cleansed?
In Grandma Alchemy’s Kitchen we give practical cookery demonstrations, offering motivation and inspiration to transform your kitchen habits on a Paleo Coaching course. We are aiming for a transformation from feeling leaden and heavy, to feeling light, vitalised and full of energy.
“Paleo” refers to Palaeolithic: before the dawning of the age of the refridgerator! before industrial agriculture and grain production. Man’s digestive system is designed to function best on whole foods: vegetables, leaves, roots, shoots, berries, nuts, seeds, pasture fed meats, wild fish and game. We seek to replicate this way of eating, sourcing our foods from small scale producers and the wild, and animal products from regenerative agriculture, that strengthens the web of life.
Empowering people as Food Sovereigns and Alchemists of the Kitchen. Paleo Coaching is aimed at transforming the family dynamic from inflammed and angry, to glowing and golden.
For one hour each week, the cookery course includes: Stock Pot Cooking, Good Fats-Bad Fats, Antioxidants & Green Smoothies. We look at Gut Flora, Gut Disbiosis, Leaky Gut and Chronic illness. We practice ‘Healing and Sealing’ the gut. We actively seek alternatives to the ‘opiates of the masses’ (wheat and sugar) and bake Paleo muffins, Paleo pizza, Paleo granola. We prepare home made probiotics at a fraction of the cost of over the counter pills: Fermented Foods, water kefir, like Ginger Beer, kombucha, coconut yogurt, SCD dairy yogurt and milk Kefir, not forgeting Sauerkraut and Kimchi.

Food is sensuous, delectable, delicious, devine. Food should satisfy all your senses and leave you feeling thoroughly satiated. Our meals, in an ideal world, leave us feeling light, energised, revitalised, restored. Hence the word ‘restaurant’. If you’re yawning and sleepy after a meal, this is the first message your body is giving you: time for change
