Sherry gets that I have an extremely active and busy life that doesn’t fit into a cookie cutter quick fix prescriptive approach. She tailors her work to suit my life.

Thank you for delivering such an entertaining presentation….the response has been 100% positive, with comments like “Sherry’s presentation made the effort to get out of bed more worthwhile.’ ‘Sherry is an excellent speaker – intelligent, witty and logical.’ And ‘Excellent! The presentation was motivating and entertaining!’ You certainly have raised the bar.
Thanks for presenting at our recent conference, Sherry. I received excellent feedback from numerous delegates about both your plenary and workshop sessions. They LOVED the cooking demonstration, particularly with the involvement of Daniel and Brian and the smell of the cooking food directly before lunch! Your presentations were a little out of the box for our conference, as most of the sessions were about financial planning, however you were incredibly well received. Injecting your personality and humour into the presentation was excellent! Our delegates acknowledged that their own health and well being – and that of their staff and clients – is of critical importance and your presentations provided them with a refreshing point of view on the topic. Some delegates are interested in discussing the opportunity for you to present for their staff and clients as a result. From a personal perspective, I took away a lot from your presentation and now consider my food choices much more carefully and look for quality rather than value for money. Thanks again, Sherry!
Your work was right on the money, you worked to the brief, you had them laughing, thinking and inspired to act on the information. You are still a conversation topic at lunch time. You captivated the audience …they were hanging on your every word…we are looking forward to having you present in the upcoming months.
Sherry was awe-inspiring and really funny, relevant to us both personally and professionally, informative, motivating, practical and entertaining. What an eye opener… easily understood with some simple tips to take on board….I would recommend her without hesitation.
Your professionalism and commitment to providing a first class presentation made our event successful as well as enjoyable. The participants were captivated by your lively, entertaining and motivating session.
Brilliant session. in your presentation you were most giving in sharing of your personal story, your hints and instructions on good eating, your delicious food samples and the recipes which made for a well rounded presentation that had everyone involved and enjoying the experience.. haven’t got over your sensational Canadian ‘Call of the Wild’ it creates a freedom and space at the start of the presentation that frees up everyone who hears it to leave their inhibitions behind.
On behalf of the North West Region of Business Managers I wish to congratulate you on your lively, entertaining and motivating presentation.. our audience particularly enjoyed your ‘Canadian Call of the Wild’ and your ‘Stone Soup’ story. your passion was contagious. Thank you for and awakening of the joys of good food. You gave us a wonderfully humorous and intelligent 60 minutes
The Bowen retreat was the most ground-breaking journey of self-discovery for me. My self-confidence increased tremendously throughout and after the retreat. Any fears and doubts that I had still lingering as to whether this is what I want to be doing disappeared as I learned more in class and in the kitchen.It was by far the greatest hands on, experiential and thoroughly nourishing learning experience.
This was the best week of my entire life. I came away a new person. I feel so blessed to have you in my life and to have this opportunity to work with you and share what I am learning from you with others.
From the first time I saw your clip in the Wheel of life documentary I have wanted to share your philosophies with anyone who will listen and I really do feel it should be shared with the masses and I am going to take great pride in spreading the word and teaching it.You are changing the world one foodie/coach at a time and it is going to be amazing and I am so proud to be a part of it all.
I believe the retreat alone is worth paying $3000.00 – $5000.00 – with all that goes into planning and making it all happen it is probably worth more than this”
My world has been transformed after meeting Sherry Strong. For the first time ever – I actually know what it means to love and care for my body, to a point where weight does not matter, and I feel “healthy”. I also can’t believe how well my children eat and how keen they are to try new foods these days. I am enjoying my time in the kitchen again after years of feeling like it’s a chore to prepare meals. It seems that I have finally switched on and realised that you really are what you eat and that the most important job I have as a mother is to nourish my family well – because how they are fuelled has such an impact upon every other aspect of their lives. There is no chore in that for me now – only pleasure and the chance to challenge myself with my creativity. Over the years I have spent a lot of time and money in trying to solve the nutritional maze, but thanks to Sherry’s remarkable RTF philosophies and the subsequent journey I have undertaken with her, the confusion has been lifted and food is fun again.
RTFA Bowen retreat was a space to personally rejuvenate and enhance my cooking skills in a safe, fun and nurturing environment – allowing inspiration and clarity from the beautiful surroundings and loving energy of other mindful foodies to flow!
I am sitting here on my patio one of my favourite places where I am overcome with emotion after finishing module 3. The Return to Food program and you feels to be 100% divinely orchestrated!I wanted to write you privately to say thank you. It is evident that you are following your hearts calling and I am beyond inspired by this course.
Sherry Strong’s Return to Food program is excellent! It’s very comprehensive video format is great to follow and work through systematically, but also at your own pace. Sherry’s dynamic, informative, and serving nature brings the philosophical approach to food to the forefront, showing how this is the way to make lasting changes to the way you eat.
She shows you how to dig deep into your mind and heart to get to the root of your food choices, and she shows you how to hypernourish not only your physical being, but also your mental, emotional, and spiritual being. The course gives you the tools and strategies to succeed in your relationship with food, and if you wish, with your clients, and other aspects of your life and your life’s calling. It’s amazing to be part of a community of people with similar interests going through their journey as well, I can honestly say I’ve seen my own evolution and that of others in the group. If you’re not sure if this program is right for you, just do it! You’ll soon realize you made the right choice!
I cannot say enough about how amazing this program is. I am so excited for the growth, transformation & passion that is coming out of the amazing group of women that I have the privilege of spending my month around. The hub of this growth is of course, Sherry- she has created a space where we feel safe to shining with our true colours, be honest with our emotions & to be perfectly imperfect (on a moment to moment basis). Minimizing nutritional confusion, learning how to speak professionally and believing in living your passion and being successful.
I’m so glad that I met Sherry earlier this year and found Return to Food. Sherry will leave you feeling inspired about your own wellness journey and excited to help others find their path in a non-judgemental and loving way.
Return to food takes you on a journey of self discovery and self love, you will come out of it with so much love for yourself, the world around you and how you do life. People around you will be declaring “I’ll have what she’s having!” Return to food teaches you how to nourish yourself, not just physically but emotionally, spiritually and mentally as well. It teaches you how to find your way to health and there is no need to measure and read and calculate. Just eat, enjoy, feel great and repeat. I haven’t felt this good about myself ever.
Finding Sherry and the Return to Food program was quite literally an answer to prayer for both my life and business. It took me on a nourishing journey mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically and I have walked away with an undeniable calling to be part of the Return to Food Movement. Return to Food is and will continue to impact people’s relationship with themselves, their food and the environment and I feel eternally blessed to have found it!
“The nutritional guidance I have received from Sherry has enabled me, at the age of 50, to operate at a peak I couldn’t have even imagined in my 20s. Best of all I enjoy how I source, store, prepare, share and ingest beautiful, natural foods. Her holistic approach to wellness works for me on so many levels.”
“Sherry’s knowledge on the subject of health is extensive…(her) passion is abundant and it’s a pleasure to work with her. Best decision I have EVER made…eternally grateful.”
“Sherry is one of the world’s most lucid experts in the area of food and nutrition.”
“Sherry gets that I have an extremely active and busy life that doesn’t fit into a cookie cutter quick x prescriptive approach. She tailors her work to suit my life. Her concepts and philosophies make complex and conflicting information make sense so I can apply her practical wisdom into my way of doing life.”
“(Sherry) has really made it so understandable, how being simple and eating food that is good for you is actually returning to nature, and we love that philosophy – it is our philosophy!”
“Sherry Strong is more than her impressive list of achievements in the nutrition world that include sitting as Victorian Chair of Nutrition Australia and sought after lecturer at IHN, one of our most prestigious nutrition schools in the country. She is, as her title so eloquently describes, “a food philosopher” who cares deeply about her students. Sherry is a goldmine resource for anyone who wants to cut out the crap and get healthy once and for all.”
“It’s not an understatement to say that Sherry Strong helped resurrect my life and my health. Her principles within Return To Food illuminate her teachings, which should be required reading for anyone interested in lifelong health, energy, and normalizing body weight. is is not a diet; it’s reclaiming your natural right to eat the way you were designed to eat.”
“What I love about this approach is that she has these philosophies, strategies and con- cepts that just make sense. They help you reframe your thinking in a way that motivates you from the inside. She gives you the tools to tell yourself what to do and in a way that you don’t feel like you’re missing out.”
