We promote a diet based on “primordial foods“, as it was done in ancient times.

We rediscover ancient ways of nutrition that were successfully used for thousands of years.

This differs completely from modern, theorized diet fads, such as “paleo”, “vegan”, “gluten-free” and other made-up, californiesque trends.

Traditional Ancient Cooking

Our culinary culture is based upon proven traditions laid out in scriptures such as the Paka Shastra (ancient Hindu Science of Cooking) and Supa Shastra, as well as other ancient culinary traditions.

A lot of the best stuff has been forgotten over the centuries. We put it all back together, with the aim to reconstitute the ultimate Ancient Elite Lifestyle.
