Welcome to Nicola's Kitchen!

Hi, and welcome to my site. My name is, you guessed it, Nicola, and I’m the founder of Nicola’s Kitchen.

The aim of my site it to help people optimise their health with a focus on nutritious, healing food that is species appropriate! Many people underestimate the power nutrition has in reversing many chronic diseases that plague our society today. Through my own health journey and extensive research, I was lucky enough to discover the work of ICMNI / PaleoMedicina in Hungary, led by Dr. Zsófia Clemens, who is a neurobiologist and clinical researcher specialized in nutrition, nutritional therapy, and brain research. Their treatment method is based on the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet (PKD), which is a nutritional therapy created by their medical team, based on clinical evidence and clinical experience with over 10,000 patients. After seeing first-hand how well the PKD worked to heal my own skin issues, sleep apnea, prediabetes, and other related issues, I have become a strong advocate for a meat-based approach to eating with a good amount of healthy fat and organ meats too. The PKD results in my own case were fast and predictable and the efficiency of their method outweighs that of all conventional therapies in my opinion. Should you have a health issue you are trying to overcome, or indeed should you simply wish to prevent health issues down the road by living your best life, I strongly recommend you visit their website (Home - Nutriintervention) to discover their medical services and read their numerous scientific articles and plethora of case studies.

On my site, I draw on my longstanding passion for food and recipe design to share with you a broad range of tasty recipes that I have developed since following the PKD way of eating. Hopefully it will inspire you too, to try out new ingredients and food combinations that are both nutrient dense, super tasty and healthy at the same time!

I especially like the quote, “To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art”: Francois de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680).  Unhealthy eating is one of the fastest growing and most dangerous health risks facing our society today. The good news is that we CAN turn this around. We are not destined for ill-health. Indeed, the human body has a natural ability to heal itself, it just needs the right environment to do so. 


I’m really pleased that you found your way to Nicola’s Kitchen. I hope you find it to be a valuable resource in your culinary and health journey.


Wishing you healthy eating, for a happy life!

X Nic
