Chef Ahki's 'Electric Kitchen' Is Your Answer To A Cleaner Diet

If we're taught better, we tend to do better.

Wellness

We all know how difficult it is to adopt and maintain a clean diet. In a world of processed foods and fast-food chains, trying to eat healthy to support our bodies seems to be the hardest thing to do. Most of us don't even know how to properly transition into a clean diet either. We give up before changes in our skin, hair, or body begin to show. Let's be real, not everyone enjoys food shopping or learning how to cook a healthy, nutritious meal. But if we're taught better, we tend to do better. And with the right amount of support, we're able to commit to our health the way we would like.


Enter Chef Ahki Taylor and her 10-week transformational program, theElectric Kitchen. If you haven't heard of "electric foods" before, you're not alone. Electric foods are natural, indigenous to the earth, and unmodified by man. These foods also are non-acidic and have an alkaline effect on the body. In her program, Chef Ahki helps people transition from the sick "Standard American Diet (SAD)," as she calls it, to a healthy and electric foods lifestyle. She also takes out the guesswork and makes cooking healthy meals fun by teaching others what electric foods are, where to locate electric foods, how to prepare electric foods, and how to adapt an electric foods mindset.

And mindset is everything in any transition.

Chef Ahki is known as the "Wellness Guru to the Stars." She has worked as a celebrity chef, motivational speaker, and has authored five holistic lifestyle books while leading her own virtual culinary academy called "The Electric Kitchen."

This wellness revolutionary-turned-influencer and food vlogger has inspired millions with her no-nonsense approach to Black women's health.

She shares with xoNecole her personal journey to becoming a vegan chef, the benefits of an alkaline diet, and her upcoming transformational program the Electric Kitchen.

Tell us about your personal journey to becoming a vegan chef and what made you adopt an alkaline food-based diet.

Chef Ahki: At 17 years old, I met a gorgeous guy who was a conscious eater. He inspired me to study dietary choices in global religion. It was so enlightening I thought I'd give it a try. Over the years I've noticed how friends, family, and loved ones were falling ill from issues I knew was preventable with a simple diet change. This motivated me to get my bachelor's in naturopathic science and holistic theology, and I took an internship as a colon therapist.

As a nutritional counselor, I learned a distinct difference between my "vegan junk food" clients and my "alkaline foods" clients. This inspired me to connect with Dr. Sebi and to release The Electric Book, a Modern Guide to Non-Hybrid & Wild Foods.

What are some of the benefits of an alkaline diet?

The body becomes more resistant to all diseases because you avoid inflammation, mucus, toxicity, and parasites. You enjoy youthful, glowing skin because the blood, kidneys, and liver are clean and hydrated. You maintain a comfortable weight with plenty of energy and a balanced sex drive.

How do electric foods help heal the body of common medical conditions?

The Electric Diet requires you to use a variety of whole foods and herbs. This can address everything from heart disease and diabetes to reproductive and autoimmune disease as it is assisting in the necessary detoxification process with each bite. All disease begins with toxins.

What are some examples of electric foods?

Grains such as quinoa and spelt flour. I eat a lot of hemp seeds and chickpeas. I also eat only seeded fruits including watermelons and grapes.

Can you share a few key concepts that participants can expect to learn in the program?

One example is how to understand ethnogenesis. In my class, we learn how Black people process sunlight, food, air, and nutrition as well as toxins much differently than others. We also debunk a lot of health food myths, like nutritional yeast and garlic being healthy foods.

Tell us a success story from one of your past program participants.

I have helped women with infertility [to] conceive. One woman lost 40 pounds! Others have simply never cooked a vegan meal in their lives and now it's the norm.

What has been the most rewarding experience for you since launching the Electric Kitchen program?

Honestly, it's the connection and inspiration for me. I love seeing the students in the kitchen trying something new and loving it!

When does the Electric Kitchen program officially start?

October 2021.

5 Things You Should Consider Before Moving Abroad

Have you considered moving abroad? In 2021, I started life as a digital nomad. A "digital nomad" is a phrase that came to popularity due to the pandemic and it describes a person who lives a location-independent lifestyle. Since I started working and traveling simultaneously, I've traveled to Mexico, London, Dubai, and the Caribbean. According to a report by Upwork, 22% of the American workforce will be remote workers by 2025 — thus giving more people than ever the opportunity to live and work abroad.
