Free for Real Kitchen is a home for traditional foods and ancestral ways of eating that promote health for body, mind, spirit, community and planet. Diagnosed with lupus and diabetes in his teens, Nico Dacumos has been on a journey of healing for over half of his life. In 2013, he founded a bakery and catering business based on the belief that food is medicine and that our bodies function best when eating the ways our ancestors ate. In modern terminology, this means that the Free for Real menu focuses on ketogenic, paleo, gluten-free, low-glycemic and vegan recipes using organic or sustainably-produced ingredients when possible. Nico hopes to lead through example as a decolonial cook, educating and feeding his friends, family and communities so that they can be happier and healthier as they fight for freedom for our peoples and to defend our Mother Earth.
