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
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.

"All of my life I have exercised regularly and I have tried to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet. I am a wife, a mother of 3 children, an avid fitness buff, and a voracious reader."
About our Partner
SOUL Food Salon is excited to announce this year's partnership with One Tree Planted. Our goal is to help the reforestation effort in California to promote environmental conservation and protect biodiversity habitat.
Trees play a vital role in creating clean air and water and a healthy climate. With your valuable contribution, we will be able to help restore areas affected by wildfires throughout California and enjoy vital ecological benefits such as habitat restoration and erosion control. Together, let's rebuild California's forests so that we can continue to enjoy their natural beauty for many years to come.

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!
