Founder's Corner

Jacque Salomon

Founder, Seeds to Inspire Foundation  |  Trauma-Informed Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner & Coach  |  Speaker

Through a Whole Plant Foods Lifestyle, meditation, yoga, and psycho-spiritual remediation, Jacque not only arrested but reversed her own chronic diseases — Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, and GERD — and shed 164 pounds.

Realizing the profound power we have over our own health, as well as the autonomy she regained over her own body and well-being, Jacque is determined to bring her story and support to communities most at-risk for future pandemics and climate destabilization.

Jacque's gratitude and health are channeled into her work as a Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner and Intersectional Activist supporting historically marginalized communities. Her work is focused on bringing Whole Plant Food Nutrition literacy, whole plant food access and affordability, and trauma-informed support to underserved communities.

The Growth of Seeds to Inspire Foundation

2016 — Jacque's healing journey led her to Forks over Knives and her own experimentation with a whole plant food diet (leading to an eventual 164-pound weight loss, the reversal of a Type II diabetes diagnosis, and more. See more about Jacque here.)


2018 — Seeds to Inspire Foundation emerges officially as a 501c(3) nonprofit as Jacque begins to realize the potential for her own healing journey to affect her community's level of health equity. Over the next few years, Seeds to Inspire organizes and participates in community and online events — distributing Bags of Kindness with health-promoting food for families in need, free-to-all documentary screenings, panel discussions, Food For Life classes, and more.

Today and beyond — Through Seeds to Inspire Foundation, Jacque continues to promote health equity in underserved communities by sharing her healing journey as a Keynote Speaker, working with groups and 1-on-1 as a health coach, and through programs like Seva Jumpstart that allow participants to witness their body's own healing power when fed delicious and immune-boosting plant-based food. 

2020 — With a start-up grant from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, Seeds to Inspire Foundation launches the first round of Seva Jumpstart, a program with 10 days of culinary medicine for those in underserved communities to experiment, like Jacque, with their body's ability to heal.
