cooking class and workshop testimonials

Hi Soulla! I have just been re-reading everything from last night and sitting here amazed by your knowledge and ability to share it in such an incredible way. I cannot thank you enough. You’re just incredible and I hope one day to be able to have your level of understanding and be able to help people like you do
— Kerry

Ps love the diffuser too..
— Maria
I am so excited for your bone broth workshop as I got so much out of the breakfast one. I have completely got rid of all grains out of my diet, I had already over time reduced to only small portions of high quality organic grains etc but you encouraged me to take that last step and am already feeling much better. I have re introduced whole milk and kefir, as well as having way more greens, and increased my meal portions, plus being a bit more creative with my smoothies. Considering how much I was already doing that I had learnt from Jen and Anthia, I am very excited to get so much from the workshop. I have already noticed my teeth becoming less transparent, its amazing how quick things can change. I also went and did a foam roller class at your gym which was really helpful too. You are doing magical work in this world and I love it!!!! Thanks for being such and inspiration
— Tegan
I thoroughly enjoyed your breakfast workshop the other night and more importantly my daughter did too. We’ve already cooked 2 recipes which may daughter loved and asked for seconds. She hardly eats avocado but was downing it with the omelette. My eldest had the steamed greens with parmesan and pine-nuts – that was delicious! My son is loving the power bars and was downing those at 9pm last night
— Maria
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much I loved your chocolate workshop on Friday…..it was so much fun and very informative and great to be a part of something that you are so passionate about :) I also wanted to let you know that I am now a complete convert to your delicious pâté and would love to be on the email alert when a new batch is in the fridge (if there is such a thing!). I’m sure you’ll see me at some future workshops and look forward to lining up when your cookbook hits the shops!
— Sandie
Hi Soulla! I just wanted to let you know how much I learned from last night. You’ve completely inspired me and can not stop researching all you talked about and incorporating and changing the way I will eat. So thank you. I was the girl in pink in the front. Totally considering bone broth now even as pescatarian. You look and live health! You should write a book!!!
— Lunna
We would like to thank you for an exceptional workshop and your valuable time after. We have learnt so much and we can’t wait to start practising your recipes. Every single one we have made on Sunday was delicious and felt extremely fresh and healthy. Our trip from NQ was worth it.
— Jan and Chantel
I found your notes from our kefir workshop and just have to say to you, how great your work and commitment is in my view. I love your blog and all the tips, have been pulling e.g. for weeks now and find it has great results! Thank you!
— Andrea
Hi Soulla, Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy life to discuss the benefits on bone broth and sharing your experience. I really enjoyed the class (as well as the nuts that i purchased) and will be awaiting eagerly for your next classes that you release. I’m trying to put into practices some of your principles and slowly going to ween myself off all of the grains that I consume on a daily basis. Thanks again!
— Jackie
I just wanted to let you know I have tried the lamb brains and scrambled eggs recipe and I love it! Your right, you can’t even taste it, if anything it just makes it thicker which isn’t a bad thing. I have been eating it for breakfast the last three days and it keeps me fuller for longer. I no longer need two lots of snacks to get me to lunch. Thanks!
Your advice and cooking classes have inspired me to completely transform what I eat and cook for my family in 2014. Cooking is now thoroughly enjoyable, I’ve become very passionate about the source and processing of the food, including a thirst for further knowledge on the subject. A big thank you! It’s your straight forward, easy and simple approach that really resonated with me. The wholefood journey started seriously for me after your lacto-fermentation workshop at the end of 2013. It was not an easy one to implement with the family (still a few challenges), but I knew something had changed dramatically when I came home tonight. My partner had cooked an amazing vegetable omelette for the family with a beautiful salad full of avocado, grass fed cheese, organic veggies, olive oil, apple cider vinegar etc. This would never have been the case a year ago (especially for someone who rarely cooked anything from scratch). My kids also go mad for sauerkraut, which was never the case when I first started making it. It goes to show (and I see this pattern repeatedly with my kids), you can’t give up after the first few attempts. Kids eventually acquire the taste for good whole food. They even enjoyed chicken livers cooked in butter straight out of the pan to my partners absolute horror :) I have always been one to eat really healthy (so I thought) and exercise vigorously for a few months, but it was never sustainable and would revert back to bad eating habits (a yoyo approach to a healthily lifestyle). I now never feel hungry, find it effortless to sustain my weight, and absolutely love cooking good whole food. I look forward to many more cooking classes and advice in 2015. BTW, your rice pudding recipe was a hit!”
— Justin
I just really wanted to say a big thank you to you. I’ve never had a one on one with you but I’ve been to 3 of your workshops and followed you on Instagram and your emails for about 1.5-2yrs. I’m dealing with some health issues and you have inspired me so much. I was perhaps ready to just take it all in but you have made my journey to better health invaluable. Today I was thinking about you and how grateful I am that I heard about you 2yrs ago. Thank you for being so inspiring and thank you for all your hard work. I really appreciate it and I’m sure many of your customers do.
— Anna
Thank you very much for your bone broth workshop. There are so many things I loved about it- and about the way you run your workshops. First of all the scientific based approach as well as the emphasis on the most efficient methods (time and ingredient - wise). Lots of small details that make a difference (I.e size of pot needed, etc). And also your honest and personal approach to it - which is helpful and refreshing- as well as your passion which always inspires me to eat and cook more healthy. Finally I am really thankful that in addition to your workshops you also sell your beautiful products which make for healthy fast food for the family on days when I’ve run out of food or too busy to make from scratch
— Claudia
I LOVED Saturday’s workshop. I feel like I have been opened to a new world. Have already used most of the oils in the kit. Thank you very much for having the kits available to take home (so much easier than picking up from the post office). And thank you for having me in your beautiful home
— Melissa
Thank you so much Soulla - such a generous, inspiring and delicious breakfast workshop!
— Sally
I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed all your workshops, and how invaluable the information you gave us was. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to do them. Thank you so much
— Rebecca
Thanks for the Bone Broth class on Thursday night, full of fun and inspiration. I had been intending to do a class for some time, And am thankful I finally committed, can’t wait for the next, your passion and no nonsense approach has left me extremely inspired
— Georgina
Hi Soulla, Just wanted to thank you so much for sharing your beautiful food and amazing knowledge with us tonight. I was thinking as you were speaking, being a lawyer is pretty good training - your intelligence and meticulous attention to detail was evident, and of course you are a natural and passionate presenter. I really appreciated hearing from Anthia, too. What a treat, when there is so much information and misinformation out there about healthy eating, to hear such a sensible and intelligent approach; instinctive yet backed up by science. I really appreciate it and am excited and inspired. I would love to learn more. thank you too for all the work you put into preparing the fantastic handout.
— Katie

Star Anise Organic Wholefood product testimonials

Soulla, your products are amazing. The nuts are the nicest nuts I have ever eaten! The other snacks did not last very long.. used some of the coconut balls as a small desert and they were a massive hit. Very happy to recommend your products (and eat them myself!). I look forward to working with you and in the Eastern Suburbs.
— Dr Kate Norris
I have had many organic/natural chocolates over the last 10 years from all over the world… these ones have to be the best by far! My fav is the fruit and nut and cinnamon crunch… well done! Your macadamia nuts are the best too!
— Peter
Soulla, your activated nuts melt in my mouth. I feel like its the first time in ages that I met someone dedicated to goodness. Love it
— Ashraya
I am writing to you after last nights event at Conscious Club and having the pleasure of sampling your products - YUM! I read your information that you handed out last night and was really impressed with your business and intrigued by your journey in getting there
— Rachel
Awww Soulla, the goods arrived, and oh myyyy, they are sooo delicious! The muesli is absolutely yummy (could devour it all day long) and the pate, well i have just tried the onion and date one and couldn’t stop myself eating half the tub!! Yummy yummy! Thank you sooo much for making such delicious nutritious whole food, it tastes sooo good!!!
— Fiona
I just wanted to let you know that last weekend I ran an event for 30 women in Sydney and served your mixed nuts as apart of the afternoon tea. There was nothing left at the end. They were a massive hit. They make my life simple and they are divine
— Amanda
Hi Soulla! Just thought I’d drop you a line to say I loved your date, nut and coconut balls last night! I’m still in raptures! Well done & keep up the great work!
— Lis
The cake was sensational. I cant wait to serve them. TRULY!!!!!!!! Amazing cake!! You are so good!
— Anthia
I just wanted to let you know that your muesli is so delicious. It has the most amazing combination of flavours & textures & our family love it! There is nothing else like it on the market. Thank you so much!
— Heather
Your power bar today was a life saver, providing the energy needed for giving 7 back to back massages, thanks!
— Georgina
Soulla, The macadamia nuts were far and away the best macadamia nuts I have ever tasted. The texture was perfect and they were gorgeous quality nuts. I must say, I find all macadamia nuts though bland relative to other nuts. I eat them occasionally (and I try and keep my nut portions pretty small, max ¼ cup on any given day) because I know they are lower in omega 6’s then other nuts. I personally prefer your almonds, cashews and walnuts (have not tried the pecans yet). That said, all your nuts are definitely the best nuts of any brand either my husband and I have tasted. Before he tried your sauerkraut and pate, my husband would have sworn black and blue he hated both. Now he loves the weekend pate lunch and eats sauerkraut with his lunch salad every day!
— Alexandra
Soulla - your chocolate bars are insane. So delicious!
— Sylvia
Darling I wanted to deeply thank you for the nourishment you create from your heart came through Sydney briefly a week ago on my way to Bowral for my weeks intensive school work and picked up many containers of your Chicken broth. It was such a privilege to eat every day, it sustained me through everything I was learning and going through for the week... I could feel the love and intention within it and my body loved it and I love you!! Thank you for being a trail blazer, a powerful woman and a beautiful soul... Hugs to you and your family
— Emma
Just wanted to say the pate is amazing - thank you! I’ve just had to stop my mother eating anymore!
— Eleni
Soulla, that pate is off the charts. Ate it and feel like the lights switched back on in my head - its amazing, and I’ll pick up 4 next week. Thanks again, you’ve made a big change for me already
— Amanda
Just a quick note to say thank you! I’ve been stalking your Instagram over the holidays and re-creating recipes based on what I’ve observed. I wanted to say thank you for your inspiration to make simple, easy and super nutritious meals. Between san choy bow, beef pho and date balls - both my husband and I are enjoying what I am sure will become staples in our household
— Rebecca

Soulla Chamberlain Health Coaching Testimonials

It’s been a long time since my last coaching session with you but I just wanted to give you a massive THANK YOU and a general update on how your guidance and a traditional whole food diet has had a profound affect on me!

I first met you at a bone broth workshop in mid 2015 and since then have been making my own broths and consuming them daily. They have added such delicious-ness to every meal and slow cooking has become a real passion and joy. After my first one on one session with you I came off the pill (ding! depression instantly lifted) completely overhauled my diet and read such interesting literature about whole foods and face shapes and foetal development (I must admit, I got somewhat obsessed with childrens faces for a while there). Everything balanced out and I was feeling great, able to tackle new challenges and make some big decisions and improvements for my life. It all came really in to play these last two months though and made me really appreciate the vitality traditional eating has brought to my life.

In September I fell pregnant (my first) and in November I found out it was ectopic. In hospital I was treated twice with Methotrexate - are you familiar with it? nasty stuff. My body took it really badly, I was really sick, lost hair, blistered, felt completely deflated and the crashing hormones had my emotions all over the place. After a few weeks my kidneys failed and completely shut down, unable to process the chemotherapy anymore I ended up back in hospital to get some fluid in to me. Finally starting to feel better I headed home to NZ to see my family and as soon as I got there suffered a huge second haemorrhage and was expected to need a blood transfusion. Upon arrival the doctors couldn’t believe my bloods, I was so high in iron! How was there a scrap of folinic acid in me when I had lost litres of blood and been on a drug that obliterates folate?? LIVER! Oh my goodness I’m sure its liver that saved me! I went on a binge. As soon as I had the methotrexate I stepped up my game and started consuming liver much more frequently, i moved up from a chicken and lamb combo in my mince to a lamb and cow combo and started swallowing multiple small chunks of raw frozen cow liver every morning and it had my levels up so well that I didn’t even need a blood transfusion, the doctors were happy that I’d be able to replenish my own stores. It has really helped me get through everything knowing how to fuel my body and give it all the replenishment needed in its healing time. with all this toxic waste of a drug running around in my system, trying to rebuild my blood stores and also going through the emotions of losing a pregnancy.

So thank you Soulla, your introduction and inspiration has, quite literally, saved me...
— Rebecca
You have been a pivotal, life-changing, influence and role model. Thank you so much for generously sharing your incredible maternal insights and knowledge with me. This beautiful little girl that I have created would not look the same without the teaching from you. I am so deeply grateful
— Roni
Before meeting Soulla Chamberlain I had done a lot of work on myself and my diet and was unsure if she would have anything to offer that I didn’t already know. After my fist cooking class with her I was blown away. Soulla backs up all her recipes and philosophies with well-rounded research. This knowledge has helped me connect with those around me by sharing scientific information about why I eat the way I do. As well as help me have a greater understanding of the way my body works and how to look after it. Before seeing Soulla my teeth were transparent and literally falling apart, I had two of my back teeth completely shatter and they had to be taken out. I am only 23 and was concerned about loosing too many of my teeth too young. Until meeting Soulla I did not realise tooth decay was reversible. Soulla gave me some diet tips which I implemented right away and within TWO WEEKS! my teeth became noticeably less transparent and stronger, to the point that people around me were saying what did you do to your teeth? On top of this she has helped bring life back into my kitchen with her exciting easy healthy recipes. I look forward to continuing working with her in the future
— Tegan
I’ve been off my medication for nearly two weeks!!! I can’t even believe it! I was tied to it for SO LONG and one session with you and I’m off it is literally life changing for me. I have no words, just complete gratitude. You’re amazing
— Carol
“My test results for my Lupus have improved dramatically in such a short time whilst doing auto-immune protocol (which I did for 6 weeks). I have my broth 2x a day so I think that also makes a huge difference. My immunologist is shocked and already started to reduce my steroids. I went from 50mg steroids to 5mg in only 2 months. After being on such high dose steroids my doctor couldn’t believe I had lost weight instead of putting on weight. She can’t believe that my face hasn’t puffed up at all from the steroids. She said, whatever your doing keep doing it! I can’t thank you enough”
— Carla
What you do is incredible. You are such a powerful voice, gifting incredible knowledge and wisdom that the world needs. You are amazing! I often think how blessed your children are to have you as their mum
— Nikki
I just want to say thank you for today. I always walk away from your consults with a deep knowing of truth, feeling inspired, & I can’t tell you how much that resonates with me. You make a real difference, I hope you’re told that often!
— Jodi
Just need to share, this morning i managed to get my very difficult 15 year old teenage daughter to have half a cup of kefir for breakfast, followed by freshly made chicken stock with egg yolk and lemon juice. She had it all and thought it was delicious. I have been trying for months now. She is addicted to Mayonaisse and adds it to everything. I now have your home-made mayo recipe that we are going to make next week. Thank You for all your encouragement.
— Maritsa
What a brilliant blog Soulla! Highly inspiring and refreshing to always read your news. Your efforts deserve the attention of a wide audience particularly our younger generation...You have a very youthful spirit which i hope/am sure is bringing in a young generation...i truly looked fwd to your 2017 classes which i fully intend to send both my girls. I cannot remember the last time i was sick thanks to you and the guidance of the RealFood Revolution i attended July 2015. Sadly i am extremely sick wth tonsilitis at present but without me asking for help from my girls...they read my mind and prepared your bone broths for me which has hit the spot...Your operation is having a huge impact in my household in small but very effective steps...i cant thank you enough...i so related to your point about coke zero versus bone broth at the movies..as it reminds me of the ridicule my daughters experience at school for eating “unusual” food...i’m proud to say that it has not faulted them and they still stand strong about eating right as you have educated us so well..Keep up your fresh, effervescent approach to managing brilliant business..For me personally, i have highly valued yr excellent customer service/advice and your priority for high quality. THANKS A MILLION!! KALI THINAMI! As the Greeks say “Keep up your strength!
— Maria
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you. I got my blood results back y’day & I actually have a few issues. You have made such a difference to my life regarding health & nutrition & advice. If it wasn’t for you I would not have seen the GP and had all the tests. I hope all that you do for others comes back ten fold
— Marcy
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your kindness over the past two months. It’s been a great education on many levels. I simply can’t believe how easily I slipped back into eating meat!
— Mira
Your 10Ps to success post is EPIC and I must say it is the best piece I have ever read on any blog, anywhere! I’m sure it took ages to compile, but it was a work of art, Soulla. I LOVED it. Very moving to read as a fellow small business owner, very honest for your followers and a perfect insight into the core values and oft-overlooked challenges. Loved how well you communicated how strongly you believe the customer is ‘always right’. It’s a cliched expression, but also something that very few people truly abide by (to the very end, rather than on just the superficial level
— Georgia
Thank you so much for yesterday - you absolutely OVERDELIVERED & I am so grateful to have found someone who was able to meet me at my level of expertise and take me to the next level!

Soulla, you are incredible, thank you. Since I saw you last, I have confidence again, and so much passion for cooking. You have opened up my eyes and brought out my domestic goddess. It’s exactly the push I needed. What a difference a day with you made! My 1 year old daughter is glowing, her skin rash gone, she is thriving, most importantly her appetite has come back ten-fold, and she is really enjoying eating the meal-plan, as are we! She is having fist-fulls of organic bacon and egg cheese scramble and kraut and olive oil carrots. She also now loves her bolognaise since I have started adding bone broth to it every dinner meal. She has a little spoon of pate daily too, it’s so yummy. I’ve noticed she is no longer relying on formula milk too. She actually goes to bed just on a bit of a breast feed and she is happy with that - amazing. I’ve also noticed with myself, that the more bone-broth and salted water I have, the more it curbs my sugar cravings too. Love your work, just love you. Thank you for being so open and caring and sharing your knowledge and recipes. Can’t wait to try them out and use them to improve my family’s nourishment. Such a gift...
— Dominika
Thankyou thankyou for the download last night. You are such a patient and supportive teacher and my health and healing has catapulted in ways I never knew possible after decades of yo-yo dieting and addiction. Meeting you has quite literally changed my life in ways I never knew imagined. You’re amazing
— Jodi
I just wanted to thank you for the bottom of our hearts for going out of your way for my daughter. You have no idea how positive and happy she is after our visit. She has taken everything you have told her on board and staying away from the processed foods. We are both right into the broth and hoping to master sauerkraut tomorrow. You are a walking book of knowledge!
— Rita
I’m just writing to you to let you know that after taking your advice with increasing the amount of organ meats I consume when I’m menstruating for the first time in nine months I have not had any chronic migraines, extreme lethargy and bed ridden pains during this time of the month. I have been eating organ meats daily this past week along with other nutrient dense foods. I’m feeling as great as I usually feel. Thank you so much for your advice. I am amazed that just by increasing the amount of organ meats my debilitating menstrual pains have vanished!
— Tehgan
I cannot believe that I’ve gone from days of nausea and pain (and medication) to feeling free and on the road to good health. Thank you so much, you’ve literally changed my life and I am so grateful
— Jill
Just wanted to say that it was lovely meeting you yesterday and I learned a lot from the consultation. I have re-read the handouts and a few of your blog posts again today and have immediately implemented your recommendations. I already feel a little more clear-headed, more satisfied after a meal and have a little more energy. I have read about a few of the paleo-related ideas in the past, but was still in denial about the facts related to grains and sugar because I thought that it would mean not enjoying food for the rest of my life. Similarly, I was confused about the lean meats idea and found that I was never full after a meal so was constantly eating - which is very time-consuming and tiring! I appreciate not only your extensive knowledge in this field, but especially that you have made it very fun, with exciting blog posts (I always look forward to them) and great recipe ideas. I actually feel very happy when I think about my future eating such satisfying and tasty foods and feeling healthy at the same time - without having to compromise!
— Angie
Thanks so much Soulla. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to you for doing what you do. You sharing what you do has changed my life and my kids. You rock!!!!
— Cindy
I loved the session we had together and after many years of knowing a little bit about what the right way forward was with food and health, you have managed to take me there, with your passion and drive and more importantly making it all seem very doable! Currently I have my first large pot of chicken stock on, my kifir is fermenting and I had raw chicken liver in my smoothie this morning! I know it will take time for all this glorious nourishment to work its way into my system, and I am very much looking forward to feeling significantly better than I currently do!
