Glowing Mumma Thriving Bubba Podcast

If someone asked you what super nutrition is, what would you say? There are so many opinions when it comes to 'the best diet' for health, but something that cant be ignored are the traditional foods that made up our ancestors diet. After reading 'Nutrition & Physical Degeneration' by Weston A Price after my studies, ancestral food choices have been something that I have instinctively been lead by when choosing nutrition to support my health. This has been particularly important to me in my preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding stages of life and continues to be an inspiration for fuelling my family today.   While this has helped me overcome health challenges such as a chronic candida overgrowth, I'm not alone when it comes to health transformations.  I'd first heard of Soulla Chamberlain through friends and I found her health story fascinating when they shared it with me. I just had to have her on the podcast to share this with you all.  Soulla is the founder of wholefoods brand “Star Anise Organic Wholefoods”  and its retail home “Broth Bar & Larder” in Sydney. She is a real and traditional foods cooking instructor, a health coach, wellness blogger, lover of the sun and surf, and a mama of 2 teens. She has been instrumental in helping pioneer a traditional wholefoods movement in Sydney and beyond over the past decade.  Soulla is on a serious mission to bring nutrient-dense traditional wholefoods back to the modern table and more broadly to inspire and empower others to lead a less toxic, and a more nourishing and conscious, life. In this podcast episode, you'll learn:  Soulla's powerful health transformation and the diet's that she has explored in the past and how they impacted her and her children’s health over the years.
