Nutritionist and Educator

Leading nutritional expert and food psychologist Sherry Strong is a dedicated advocate for holistic nourishment. The passionate educator shows how we are under-utilising the power of food, and why our bodies are starved of the opportunity for vibrant health and energy.

Sherry serves up a practical and witty approach to nutrition, motivating everyday people to enjoy a healthy relationship with food, creating wellness, weight loss and energy. Whether at corporate presentations or TV, radio and public event appearances, Sherry’s insightful philosophies and thought provoking messages prove why she is a leader in her field.

Invited to present to corporations, companies as well as the University of Queensland’s Brain Institute or on television and radio here in Australia or overseas, she wittily reveals the shocking truth about food, its, often, detrimental impact on our body and planet. It is not only highly informative, but also entertaining to listen to her philosophies on how to heal both.

With a revolutionary philosophical approach, Sherry will have your energy increased by 300% and even losing weight through health and mind gains.

About Sherry

Australia, and especially Melbourne, has been lucky enough to attract some extremely talented and vivacious Chefs, but none more so than Sherry Strong. This Canadian born Australian is not only a great Chef but a dynamic presenter and award winning speaker.

Sherry arrived in Australia ten years ago, and in that time has worked in some of the best restaurants, developed the Food Lover’s workshop, and sits on numerous boards. All this from someone who grew up in the culinary equivalent of a gastronomic black hole! While brief working stints with the likes of Charlie Trotter at Trotters and Stephanie Alexander has given Sherry her passion for food, it is her
research into produce, where it has come from and how it is processed, that makes what Sherry enthuses, so interesting.

The Foodlover’s Workshop was designed to demystify and motivate people to make life changing food choices. The focus is on food that feeds the body, including the palate and the soul.

Sherry has appeared regularly on the Denise Show, Morning Shift, as well as What’s Cooking, has co-hosted a radio program “Body Talk", presented at the 2001 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival’s regional Masterclass, and contributed to Herald Sun’s Food & Drink section. Sherry shared the stage with many celebrity chefs at the Good Food Show including Jamie Oliver and Rick Stein.

She sits on the board of the National Speaker’s Association of Australia and Body Image & Health Inc., chairs the Nutrition Australia foundation (Vic. division). In amongst all this Sherry freelances in the corporate arena both as a Celebrity Chef and a guest speaker. Where does she find the time? We don’t know but this is proof of her passion and commitment to food, health and lifestyle.
