Praise for Bethanne and / or her Edible Goddess product lines!
Awe-struck! Is that a good adjective? You and Amber work well together at the Superfood Detox & Pilates/Yoga day workshop. Finally, I took the class I needed to take so that I can approach regaining my health in a way that makes sense and is so simple. I will be coming to your edible skin care workshop. Words do not express.

Thank you so much for the awesome class yesterday. I’m already very inspired and have immediately added some of the superfoods you taught us about. Not kidding, I’ve never been excited about preparing and eating foods and I couldn’t even sleep last night thinking about it! I’m going to download your eBook and learn more 😉 I really love your energy and knowledge on all the foods and sharing your experience. I think that really encourages me to find the spark in how I’m treating my body, not just running 10 miles, but how to fuel it so I can be my best self Thank you for inspiring me Bethanne
~ Cheers, Valerie Tsang
I took Bethanne and Christian’s dessert making workshop last weekend and am still so inspired and motivated by it! The class setting was sweet and warm, and Christian and Bethanne are a superhero teaching team! They bring love and positive vibes to the class! They complement each other beautifully – Christian has a calm, peaceful energy and Bethanne has sparkly gold energy! They took such good care of us in the class using the most amazing organic best ingredients in the world, and even brought us fresh spring water that they had collected! Their teaching style was so enjoyable; they made both the “newbies” and the “experts” in the class feel engaged and welcomed. Their directions and nutrition education were both clear and vast! The desserts they made were AMAZING! Perhaps most importantly, when I got home – literally the next day, I made three of the recipes and they came out beautifully! That is the best part! Their recipes are ingenious because they are nutritionally sophisticated yet simple and clear to follow! Now a week later, I’ve made the creamy cacao pudding twice and both the fudge and the ice-cream! I highly recommend any class you can take with this superhero duo! They will inspire and empower you to create amazing, delicious, healthy superfood desserts for yourself and your community!

Wow! What a great class last week. I learned a great deal and want to know more. I was surprised and impressed at the depth of knowledge that both Bethanne and Christian have! Thanks again for everything. I felt transformed leaving your class. My energy was back to where it was 25 years ago.

I recently attended Bethanne & Christian’s chocolate-making workshop. I was pleasantly surprised to see how easy the recipes were and Bethanne & Christian generously shared their superfoods knowledge and made it simple enough for me to go home with the confidence to try it myself. Can I just say I am sitting here right now eating some of the best tasting chocolate ever! Not only did I learn how to make this amazingly satisfying chocolate, I learned how to sneak some superfoods into my daily recipes… Thank you Bethanne & Christian for sharing your creations with us!
~ Daina Selph
Yum, the treats were absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to try out these recipes on my own. I plan to give the gift of healthy chocolates to everyone on my list and share them wherever I can. Sharing super healthy foods instead of toxic food with others during the holidays is always my goal. Now I know I can share something everyone will love, chocolate! Thank you Bethanne and Christian for an informative workshop. I love that you shared so much information about the ingredients in your recipes and empowered us to try to personalize and experiment with them.
~ Ramona Beville, Health Coach
Thank you so much!!! I really loved my experience with you two! I’ve been drinking my shake everyday since the talk… I could live on it actually… sooo yummy! I found the class informative and great fun! I loved the nutritional info in the class, packed with great sources and background on the super foods. Everything was yummy and great to know I can now make tasty treats that are actually good for me and my family! Great setting too! Highly recommend this class. Keep up the great work!
~ Fredda Psaltis
I REALLY enjoyed the Chocolate Superfood and Dessert making class by Christian and Bethanne. It was inspirational, educational, and fun! I made the superfood chocolate fudge at home the very next day and it was easy – even my husband and kids loved it. This is definitely something I will bring to wow my friends and family at future gatherings, raw foodies and SAD eaters alike.
~ Cindy Yacob
As a raw vegan who experiments with a variety of foods, it was fun for me to get new and creative ways to use raw chocolate mixed with superfoods. All the samples were delicious! Bethanne and Christian have a wealth of information to share and I highly recommend the Chocolate Making class or any other class or event that they host. Thanks!
~ Ronit Gesundheit
I took your chocolate making class with a friend back in October, and I want to thank you and Christian for teaching us so many of your DELICIOUS recipes. My friend and I have made lots of fudge a few weeks ago, and the texture and flavor turned out perfect thanks to your no-fail recipe. We also made the pudding, which I am seriously addicted to now. People that have tried it cannot believe the secret ingredient, so thank you again!

“Since working with Bethanne and implementing her ideas, my energy level throughout the day has grown tenfold. Stomach pains that I was experiencing while exercising were gone overnight. I take in less food than I used to throughout the day. If you’re even thinking about making changes to your life, I’d send you to Bethanne in a heartbeat!”
Bethanne is the nutritionist/inspiration/educator that I’ve been waiting for for years. Although I lead a food and health-conscious life, I run a business in which I exercise up to six hours a day, am constantly on the go, and find it challenging (nearly impossible) to give my body the proper nutrition and TLC I know it desperately needs. However, like most women, I found it scary and unnerving to ask for help when it comes to my eating habits and the wellness of my much guarded body. I was hoping to be able to get by without having to seek help, because I didn’t want to have to talk to a stranger, feel judged, or treated like a clueless person. As soon as I met Bethanne, it was like a weight was taken off my shoulders.
Aside from being genuinely sweet, bubbly, welcoming, and encouraging, she knows her stuff! Bethanne truly impressed me in every way. She’s a magician with her creative, unique, and DELICIOUS meal ideas that she conjures up on a daily basis. She understands how the body works on a cellular level, and can therefore lead you down a path that is unique to YOU. Bethanne recognizes that each woman is different, and her body’s needs are, too. Since working with Bethanne and implementing her ideas, my energy level throughout the day has grown tenfold. Stomach pains that I was experiencing while exercising were gone overnight. I take in less food than I used to throughout the day because Bethanne knew exactly what supplements my body was lacking; so, once I started incorporating those things into my diet (mostly via smoothies!), I didn’t need to chow down at home or in the car to feel like I’d done my body justice. She recognized immediately what my body was lacking (and what it didn’t need), and after I made her suggested changes, my body felt like a well-oiled machine.
If you’re even thinking about making changes to your life, whether they’re drastic or minor (or anywhere in between), I’d send you to Bethanne in a heartbeat. She truly cares about those she works with, and just wants you to be the version of yourself you can be, whatever that may mean for you. She’s a breath of fresh air, and a wonderful resource. I am grateful to know that she’s someone who can be a mentor and friend for years to come. This is only the first chapter in my story, and I’m looking forward to seeing where my adventure with her takes me. You won’t be disappointed. Plus, who can say no to someone who encourages dark chocolate delights?!

“I recommend a workshop with Bethanne to anyone wanting to deepen and uplift their relationship with food. It is invaluable, transformative, and inspiring.”
“My private chocolate-making workshop with Bethanne was absolutely life-changing! I had been wanting to master the art of creating raw chocolate for a long time – and her class gave me exactly the tools I needed to do so! Her teaching was detailed, attentive, and personal. We focused on my specific needs and interests, and made the most of our time. I recommend a workshop with Bethanne to anyone wanting to deepen and uplift their relationship with food. It is invaluable, transformative, and inspiring.”
~ Marie Thouin, Novato, CA

“Bethanne is incredibly generous with her time, knowledge and resources and it is apparent that she is constantly rooting for your success along the way. She will instill in you a desire to incorporate healthier lifestyle choices and keep you fired up along the way.”
“Investing in our health is the most important gift we can give for ourselves. I could never have imagined what a profound impact seeking out a nutritional coach would have on my own lifestyle choices until I made the decision to work with Bethanne. I was originally introduced to Bethanne when I attended her Chocolate Superfoods Workshop back in October 2011. I was astounded by the knowledge that her and her partner, Christian, offered during this three hour workshop. I was introduced to a world beyond conventional nutrition and was intrigued and inspired by the information they provided. Although the basis of the workshop was about raw chocolate, Bethanne and Christian utilized the workshop to bring desserts to a whole new level by incorporating superfoods in order to maximize the nutritional benefit.
This opened up a whole new world for me; one that I wanted to learn more about and begin to incorporate into my own daily life. Working with Bethanne has provided me the opportunity to do just that. Her knowledge about nutrition extends well beyond the basics. She not only offers a comprehensive plan to incorporate into your own daily life, but she goes well beyond that by identifying how our outside influences, such as our work, our home and our social lives impact our choices and how nutrition is affected in our day to day lives. What and how we eat is greatly affected by our ability to handle stress, adapt to change and manage our everyday lives. Bethanne takes the time to understand how each of these things impacts her clients’ everyday lives. By doing so, she is able to assist in creating a healthy lifestyle change, not a diet, but a nutritional plan to continually expand and build upon well after her coaching sessions have concluded.
For those looking to make a lifestyle change or merely just take their nutrition to the next level and gain a new perspective, Bethanne will offer just that. Bethanne is incredibly generous with her time, knowledge and resources and it is apparent that she is constantly rooting for your success along the way. She will instill in you a desire to incorporate healthier lifestyle choices and keep you fired up along the way. Hence the term “coach,” a very fitting term as Bethanne gives you the tools and resources to take your health to the next level.”

“Bethanne is a wealth of knowledge.”
“Bethanne is a wealth of knowledge. Her enthusiasm and passion for what she shares and what she LIVES shines through, even in a tele-seminar! I am excited to put her ideas and recommendations to my own test and skyrocket my health to the next level, and BEYOND! Thank you, Bethanne! You rock!”
~ Alicia Morrow Carberry, Denver, CO
“I tried several cleanses and diets to rid myself of candida and it wasn’t until I was coached by Bethanne that I was able to clear it up.”
“I tried several cleanses and diets to rid myself of candida and it wasn’t until I was coached by Bethanne that I was able to clear it up. She kept me on track, and she communicates straight forward with no nonsense. Bethanne also educated me on the importance of healthy and non-toxic beauty products because what you put on your skin goes into your bloodstream – and although I was already pretty informed on this subject, I have refined it even more. She opened doors to new product lines that I had never even heard of. Bethanne’s positive, upbeat personality is a joy to be around. I highly recommend her as a health and life coach.”
~ Dalila Cunha, Mill Valley, CA
“Bethanne has inspired me to make many health changes that I continue to be thankful for.”
“I so much enjoy knowing Bethanne. She has a wealth of information, seems to have really done her research, and continues to educate herself more all the time. I love how personable she is! Also, she is one of the most generous people I know – whether it is sharing her knowledge or any one of her goodies. Her goodies are out-of-this-world delicious!! Every single time! And then there is her contagious energy! Bethanne has inspired me to make many health changes that I continue to be thankful for. I look forward to tapping more into her wisdom any way I can.”
~ Anja Eckert, Kentfield, CA
“When looking for a coach, we wanted to find somebody who truly walks the talk and that is exactly what we found with Bethanne.”
“We’re so happy to have spent a weekend retreat with Bethanne. Her bubbly and motivating personality are inspiring. When looking for a coach, we wanted to find somebody who truly walks the talk and that is exactly what we found with Bethanne. She describes in detail, the health benefits of all the ingredients she uses in her tonics and elixirs with demonstration and how to play with flavors for what fits our needs. We feel empowered to move forward, continuing to grow our business and help others. Thank you so much Bethanne, for the fabulous time we spent together.”

“I chose Bethanne as a coach because I knew she was the one to help me go the distance.”
“When I decided to embark on this journey to better health, a better me, I chose Bethanne as a coach because I knew she was the one to help me go the distance. I needed the right mindset to have the willpower and change my habits. Bethanne provided the support to accomplish this. After evaluating my health, she assisted me in keeping my habits in line with my goals. As I progressed toward being a conscientious vegetarian, her kind guidance ensured my success from the beginning. How encouraging that was!!!!
Making choices regarding what to eat, and even what to think about everyday can be very challenging, and the words “I can and I will” were the first step toward success. Bethanne certainly made sure those words were in front of me every step of the way and were a focal point for my daily activities. I embraced Bethanne as part of my life to accomplish my road to vegetarianism, but in the end it became much more than just a choice of what to eat. My whole way of looking at a day, my interactions with people – my very nature changed! So thank you Bethanne for the lessons… the journey… the support! Such encouragement could not have been found in any other way. You have a vast knowledge of just about everything and I very, very much appreciate your sharing just a small part of such knowledge with me for my own long-lasting benefit!!”
With much appreciation,
~ Marisol Ades, Novato, CA
