Tips from the Net @ Alchemist Garden

Nice place to relax and have a drink but horrible place if you are looking to eat something. The dishes are made by people with no knowledge of food. I ordered a 'Pasta Pesto' and despite it being called 'Pasta' they served no pasta... They served zucchini with a tiny bit of pesto, the entire dish was only around 50 calories when a dish should be at least 500. Not eating is not healthy. Healthy eating = healthy. It would be great if they would do a basic course in nutrition and learn about fats carbs and protein (macros), maintenance and calorie intake, but since they are vegans they are likely not open to science (except for pseudo science). I also decided against making a problem out of their false advertising by calling the dish 'pasta pesto'. I'm sure they are unaware that it's illegal and wouldnt been able to be convinced with logic. All dished on the menu were very bad from a health perspective. They were all pretty rather than nutritious If you are looking to have a good time and want to have a bite when you have already eaten this is a good place. The staff is friendly and the place is pretty. They are kind people who just don't know better, but kudos to them for spreading what they believe in. Ps. Advice for vegans: Vegetables are very healthy as an addition to a dish, not as the dish. "Eat more veggies" doesnt mean, "only eat veggies." Denying science can be very bad for mainly mental health. Low energy, negative thoughts and unstable minds is what many vegans struggle with. Eat more high quality protein and that will be solved within several weeks ;). Good sources for vegans are Soy, Hemp seeds, Chia seeds and Spirulina. Try to eat 75-125 gram of one of those per day. And add B+D vitamin supplements which help with the uptake of protein nutrients. Beans nuts etc are bad protein sources since per gram of protein it contains way too much calories. GooglePlace - June 2017
