Tasmania Food as Medicine talk!

Becca Crawford


TASMANIA!!!!!!!! You asked us to come to Tassie as part of our Food As Medicine Australian tour and we are obliging!

On Saturday 31 August myself and Marieke Rodenstein - Australia’s leading holistic dietician whose shares my passion for ancestral dietary principles and regenerative farming - will be presenting in Launceston for a FULL DAY event (9am-6pm). The morning Food as Medicine talk focuses on the fundamentals of robust nutrition and robust gut health, along with myth busting around conventional dietetic principles that have led to an epidemic of chronic illness and degenerative disease. I will educate you on how to kick dietary toxins to the curb and healthy swap with nutrient-dense food in an easy, positive and empowering way. You will receive a comprehensive HOW TO manual that sets you up for life with all the information, tools and resources you need. 

A delicious organic wholefoods lunch is included followed by a healthy homes/ healthy swaps/ essential oils talk in the afternoon where the focus is on kicking the chemicals in your home environment especially in conventional personal care products and household cleaning products to create a toxic-free home environment (the ONLY environment you can control).

Make a FULL DAY of optimising your health by learning how to increase nourishment and reduce dietary and environmental toxins to become the best possible version of yourself.

To learn more or to book click here!

Please help me promote this event by forwarding this email to everyone you know in Tassie. You will receive a free copy of one my online cooking classes of your choice for every person who books in upon your recommendation. So if 4 people book in upon your recommendation, you will receive all 4 of my online cooking classes valued at $79 each. Sweet! Please help me spread this important message to our friends down under that FOOD CAN BE THE MOST POTENT MEDICINE and that KICKING BOTH DIETARY AND ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS IN YOUR HOME is the fastest and easiest way to reclaim and maintain spectacular health. 


Brisbane 25th May Healthy Homes / Healthy Swaps / Essential Oils gathering 

Becca Crawford


My recent talk on the Gold Coast in mid April on swapping out the toxins in our home was fully booked with many disappointed to not have secured a spot. I’m delighted to announce that I’m heeding to your requests to run another identical talk in QLD – this time in Brisbane on 25th May (1PM - 4:30PM in Toowong).

If you have already been to one of my Healthy Home talks please come again and bring friends to help them onto a less toxic, more nourishing path. After all, it all starts with a friend helping a friend, who helps another friend, and so on. My journey started over 20 years on the grassy knoll of Bondi with a friend telling me that conventional apples were sprayed. I was so shocked, disgusted and outraged that the “food” that I thought was healthy was actually covered in a toxic film. This then sparked a journey that radically altered the course of my life. And of course one door opened another door and from an exploration of our food system the path then lead to an investigation of the ingredients found in personal care products, household cleaning products, pharmaceuticals and everything in between. Chemical Sh%tstorm is how I would sum up what I discovered. Is it any wonder why we have this epidemic of chronic illness and degenerative disease when so much of what we ingest, touch, inhale, and slather on our skin, hair and scalp is questionable at best or toxic at worse. 

In my next Healthy Home talk I’ll show you how simple, easy and cost effective it can be to rid your house of all hormone-disruptive toxic chemicals and healthy swap to all-natural, super powerful products. In this no nonsense, comprehensive 3.5 hour talk I’ll explain how you can use therapeutic-grade essential oils and oil infused products to:

  • healthy swap ALL your conventional personal care products and household cleaning products to create a toxic-free home environment for your family;

  • turbo charge or enhance the fundamental pillars of health to take your and your family’s health to a whole new level; and 

  • healthy swap conventional pharmaceuticals with safe, yet powerfully effective, alternatives (this is very empowering as a parent!);

  • add a beautiful energy and spirit to your home making it a safe, inviting and comforting sanctuary. 

There’s no time like the present to start kicking toxic chemicals to the curb in the ONE and only environment you can control!

I can’t wait to see you in Brissie!!!

Hi Soulla, a huge thank you for the amazing session last night. It was such an eye opener and I am feeling so inspired and ready to dive in. I was up til after midnight checking my existing personal care products only to find many of the “clean” options I have been using are scoring really high in the toxic category. Perfect time to start swapping them out! Thank you for sharing such a wealth of information and being so generous with your time. I so deeply appreciate it 🙏 
— Kate
Thank you so much for such a fantastic morning talking everything oils! Your session was brilliant and covered everything I could have hoped for. Your beautiful energy, integrity, knowledge and lovely, relaxed way of educating and sharing information was infectious (in the very best way!). Thank you again as I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I’m really looking forward to seeing you again in Melbourne as you’re like a breath of fresh air and really motivated me to up my oils game. Absolutely love Young Living!! 
— Tracie
Soulla, I would have been lost if we hadn’t crossed paths. I am so different than everyone over here. You and our Young Living tribe have given me so much love and support. Without that I’m sure the stress would have taken over! 
— Kelly
Hi Soulla, I just wanted to reach out and tell you how much I appreciated today. Thank you. This is the start of my journey, yet after today’s workshop, I walked away feeling:
* empowered by the knowledge you shared
* clear on the direction I wanted to take; and
* motivated to change
The first thing I did when I got home was run all my favourite household products through the EWG website. I’m now scared to touch some of them but I’m grateful that I now know what is really inside them. I can’t wait for my Young Living Healthy Homes kit to arrive. Thanks again!

'Good For You' Chocolate Workshop 2019

Becca Crawford

File 16-1-18, 8 54 27 pm.jpeg

I am excited to be running a round of Chocolate workshops limited to 10 people each. 

Everyone loves to indulge in something sweet and chocolately every now and again – and why not? We eat for pleasure just as much as for nourishment and sustenance. But the key to sweet treat consumption is maximising quality and limiting quantity! What I have observed and personally experienced over the past 20 years is that if we dial up quality to the max, the quantity consumed naturally decreases. A little goes a long way when you eat the real deal as your body gets its fix and fill super fast.  

Finding high quality treats without any artificial ingredients and empty fillers can be tricky business which is why I started my own range for my children over 10 years ago.  It’s comforting to be able to offer my loved ones the occasional treat that’s naturally sweetened and made with only nutrient-dense ingredients without feeling overridden with guilt that I’m messing up their health. I want this for every household! Which is why I want to share some of my favourite chocolate recipes and culinary tips with you in this intensive workshop, so that you too can make chocolate treats and desserts for yourself, your family and friends that not only taste delicious, are quick and super simple to make, but are also good for you!


  1. Mexican chilli hot chocolate 

  2. “sokolata” chocolate block/slab of various flavours including carob

  3. chocolate hazelnut spread (the real “nutella”)

  4. chocolate ice-cream

  5. hot chocolate pudding

  6. chocolate hazelnut slice

  7. chocolate mousse

We will be using unprocessed fermented raw cacao powder.

We will not be using any refined sweeteners – only natural unprocessed sweeteners or whole fruit.

All recipes are grain-free, but 3 contain dairy.

As you will be making your own sokolata to take home please bring a small rectangular glass container lined with baking paper (15cm x 10cm or thereabouts).

I look forward to seeing you at one of my chocolate workshops soon! If all  workshops book out, I will run another workshop.
