      SOUL (seasonal, organic, unprocessed, local) Food Salon inspires, empowers and educates our community on how we can all live a healthier life and help create a healthier world in the process. 





      SOUL Food Salon serves as a platform to share ideas, gain practical knowledge on healthy cooking and create confidence in our participants on living a healthy life and ensuring a future healthy planet. We host a salon (a small gathering) event monthly featuring local chefs, health and wellness experts, and nutrition culinarians. We learn something new and expand our comfort zone through education, cooking, discussion and experimentation. Through these events, we hope to join the community in expanding the depth of understanding and learning of new ideas and techniques related to health and wellness. With this knowledge, we ultimately become stronger, healthier and better equipped to nourish and support ourselves, our families, each other and the members of our communities.

      A short video about Jeanne

      • YouTube Social  Icon

      Jeanne Rosner is a medical doctor with a passion for teaching about better health, wellness and nutrition. For the past ten years she has been a nutrition educator at local middle and high schools in the Bay area. She teaches middle school and high school students the importance of eating food closest to the source, making good food choices and eating in a balanced and moderate way. 


      In 2011, Jeanne was involved in researching a list of nearly 80 “unacceptable ingredients” for the company Revolution Foods. This project opened her eyes to some of the dangers in our food supply. Revolution Foods feeds over one million freshly prepared, healthy meals per week to students across the country through their school lunch program. Their emphasis on eating food that is more whole and “real” and less processed is Jeanne's main message too.

      This year SOUL Food Salon is thrilled to partner with the nonprofit Eat REAL, a movement of change-makers passionate about increasing real food access and education in K–12 schools. They are helping our children and the planet flourish through food system innovation.


      Eat REAL helps schools transform their individual food program and our global food system, fighting the dual crises of our children's health and our planet's health. Its standards-based evaluation and change management program encourages school districts to make upgrades like adding plant-based options on menus, removing items with added sugar, increasing local procurement of seasonal ingredients and introducing nutrition education in the cafeteria. Working with district food service leaders, Eat REAL is increasing nutrition equity for our children and building the next generation of real food advocates. It has brought its certification model to over 500 partners nationwide.
      Your gift will help expand Eat REAL's certification program in Silicon Valley in support of K-12 schools. The program helps assure that every child has access to the food they need to learn, grow and thrive. Thank you for helping them create a healthier tomorrow.

      In the past I’ve teamed up with Dr. Angie Neison from @flavors4wellnessmd for inspirational recipes incorporating more plants. Adding more plants to meals makes a difference, adding a variety of plants makes an even bigger impact to your health and the health of the planet. 


      Angie and I are simply two plant 🌱 loving 👩🏻‍⚕️Culinary Medicine Focused docs here to inspire you, share our knowledge in evidence-based nutrition and help you navigate this 🌎 one delicious plant-filled recipe at a time. 

      Our hope is to motivate you to cook more at home!
      We are two plant-loving docs who are here to educate and inspire you to cook more at home.

      We know that these past few years have been difficult.
      However, the silver lining from the pandemic is that more of us got in the kitchen cooking.

      Our hope is to instill more love, nourishment and joy back in the kitchen.


      Each month we will feature a category of ingredients, for example- legumes or whole grains. We will share a few fun facts that make these ingredients healthy and interesting. Then throughout the month we will share simple and tasty recipes incorporating these ingredients.

      Hopefully you all will be inspired to cook along with us and to share the content with others. Check out our content on instagram @soulfoodsalon and @flavors4wellnessmd and use #cookathome.
      The  more the healthier!
