Hi and welcome!I'm Jacquelyn, a Health and Wellness Coach/Chef, and Founder of Starving and Single and SolFood Collective. I'm a big advocate of using food as medicine, being a voice for the animals and spreading the message of compassion, while living a healthy plant-based, cruelty-free lifestyle. I see the importance in teaching others how easy and life-changing eating vegan and being cruelty-fee can be. I was given the opportunity to spread this message by the Food Network when asked to join Season 10 of The Great Food Truck Race. My team and I drive from city to city in my SolFood Collective Food Truck cooking up amazing vegan dishes, connecting with communities, and spreading our message to "Feed your Sol and Live Kindly".
I started my journey in health and wellness after I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and used food as medicine to reverse my symptoms. Before changing my lifestyle, my disease progressed, leaving me unable to walk and in need of constant care. After getting my diagnosis and being told chemotherapy was my future, I decided to take matters into my own hands and adopt a vegan lifestyle. Within 30 days, I was walking again and pain free for the first time in over 20 years. Living the vibrant life I've always envisioned, I now take my experience and love of food to help others overcome their struggles with health and get on the road to recovery. Many of us deal with gut issues, inflammation, depression, skin irritations and so on. I believe you don't need to be on a ton of medications to feel better. It's only putting a band-aid on the problem. Let's get to the root cause and rip that band-aid off! Let's eat right and get rid of our excuses for never feeling well.
The recipes I create and share on my site are all designed to heal, providing nutrition along with absolute deliciousness. Come say hello on my live Facebook Videos, where I prepare meals, discuss the health benefits of each dish and answer any questions you have. If you're more of an Instagrammer, follow me there! You can always join the Starving and Single community by subscribing to get recipes, health tips, nutrition advice and more!
