Guest info: 

Faced with a long list of debilitating digestive & mental health issues, Helen Marshall turned to a Primal diet in a desperate attempt to reset her health. Amazed with how her health and life transformed JUST by changing the foods she ate, Helen felt called to help other women realise that their health problems were not their fault and they were not alone.

Using her Thermomix Helen created a homemade range of Primal Alternatives to sell at her local farmers’ markets, cool cafes, gourmet pizza shops and health shops.

The feedback was that Primal Alternative range of Breads, Pizzas, Cookies & Gellies was LIFE CHANGING.  It made going Primal more doable and sustainable and you didn’t need to ‘fall off the wagon’ just because you fancied pizza night!

Helen is bringing Primal Alternative to the whole of Australia!  To do that she has franchised her successful business model to empower creative Mums like her, with a passion for clean living to run a successful business from home. She has called this the Primalista Baking Franchise.  Helen is creating a National Brand of local producers – think sisterhood!

Helen helps women get their health back with 1:1 Coaching, 21 Day Challenges and her Primalista Baking Franchise brings business opportunities to empower women.


Show description: 

This week’s guest is the wonderful Helen Marshall from Primal Alternative.

Helen shares her story of how she hit rock bottom with her health many years ago, after following the old paradigm of conventional health advice for most of her life. This lead her to making a shift into a primal lifestyle, including a gluten-free and grain-free eating approach, that resulted in many health improvements and healing from the inside out.

Helen started spreading the word about healthy cooking and baking to help people transition from a standard Western diet to a whole food, gluten-free, primal way of eating. Helen started Primal Alternative, a wonderful range of primal foods with a unique community-based franchising model that encourages the empowerment of women and sisterhood, enabling women to start home-based businesses to serve their local community with healthy food.

Helen and I have found that we speak a similar language when it comes to health and wellness, community, sisterhood and empowering women in the work we both do in the world. This was such a fun episode and what a breath of fresh air Helen is!
