BD Now! 038 Domini Kemp, author of “The Ketogenic Kitchen: Low Carb. High Fat. Extraordinary Health”

Domini Kemp is the co-author of the Chelsea Green Publishing book “The Ketogenic Kitchen”

This remarkable book is a must-read if you have any concerns about improving your health or performance. While mainstream medicine continues to deny the effectiveness – – and even the safety! – – of the ketogenic diet, a nutritionist (Patricia Daly) and a practical celebrity chef (Domini Kemp) – – both cancer survivors – – have researched the sensible nutritional science behind the effectiveness of the keto diet and have given us a beautiful book full of delicious recipes and meal plans that keep being low carb or ketogenic an easy and delicious thing to do!

Domini is the co-author with nutritional therapist Patircia Daly of The Ketogenic Kitchen the first comprehensive ketogenic cookbook based on exciting new research on nutritional approaches to the prevention and management of cancer. This is a must-have cookbook for people with cancer or who want to prevent cancer, written by a practicing research nutritionist and a progressive chef who both use low-carohydrate diets to support their own recovery from cancer. It’s beautiful book, full of nutritional information, inspiration and delicious recipes!

Domini is an award winning chef, food writer, and entrepreneur. In 2013, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and since then she has shifted her focus towards healthier eating. She changed her column in the Irish Times to focus on healthier recipes and opened Alchemy Juice Co., a juice and wholefoods cafe. The Ketogenic Kitchen is her fifth cookbook and is focused on nutrition and well-being through tastey and easy to prepare whole food recipes.

For decades, the ketogenic diet—which shifts the body’s metabolism from burning glucose to burning fat, lowering blood sugar and insulin and resulting in a metabolic state known as ketosis—has been used to successfully manage pediatric epilepsy. More recently, it has been used by the Paleo community as a performance and weight loss strategy and to promote metabolic health by reducing insulin resistance. Now emerging research suggests that a ketogenic diet, in conjunction with conventional treatments, also offers new hope for those coping with cancer and other serious disease.

The Ketogenic Kitchen is the cookbook that Domini and Patricia wished had existed when they first started managing their cancer recovery with a low carb high fat diet. The book gives advice we can trust because both of the author’s are cancer survivors and attribute their survival to the concepts and recipes included in The Ketogenic Kitchen

  1. Survival instincts kicked in after my first chemo for Hodkins Lymphona, 1998 and I only wanted FAT and lots of it. I naturally put myself into Ketosis and to this day choose a low carb, high fat, moderate protein with tons of green veggies food. I fast from dinner to lunch daily to burn any extra glucose and rest my digestive system. I do this with bullet proof coffee first thing. (Lots of water too)
    Since I did not do standard therapy for this very deadly cancer, I attribute my success to ketosis. I love seeing this coming to a broader audiance. Great book, will order for sure!

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Victoria. I hope you can find time to listen to all of the BDNow! Podcasts in the near future!

  2. I would like to assume / believe that cancer gets its fuel from glucose, and I think that’s why the low carb high fat diet works.

    This book will be definitely beneficial to people fighting cancer.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I agree with you over all but Mercola posted an article today on the value of polyphenols in the diet to control cancer, as well. That’s something we conventional low carb people may have eliminated from our diets, since they are found heavily in things like purple potatoes
