Healthy body, healthy soul!

Did you know that healthy eating habits lead to more than physical wellbeing, they can also have a positive impact on your mental self as well? Spreading this word is our mission at Soul So Good Healthy a 501c(3) non-profit founded in 2010 and dedicated to health education and awareness throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area.

We have a special focus on healthy diet education and provide programs centered around healthy eating to individuals and families. We believe that there is a community-wide crisis and we are stepping up our efforts by working with elected officials, civic leaders, faith-based organizations, community centers, and employers to spread the word.

Soul So Good Healthy was founded by Diane Collins, owner of Collins Wellness Center and author of the Soul So Good Healthy Cookbook.

Why Soul So Good?

Soul So Good Healthy was born out of a desire to help educate and empower those with health disparities, particularly amongst minorities within our own community. We provide the knowledge and tools necessary to combat and overcome health challenges. We realize that a common thread found in most health ailments seen in our community is a poor diet, and that people who desire to eat healthy lack a foundation in good food.
Healthy food CAN taste good, and be nutritious at the same time! Our Soul So Good Healthy program utilizes rich flavors, vibrant seasonings, captivating textures, and fresh ingredients to invite people to engage a healthier lifestyle.
After several years of encountering people at church and other local groups, our founder, Dr. Collins saw a need to reach more people with the healthy lifestyle message. Soul So Good Healthy was established as a 501c(3) non-profit in 2010 as a means to reach these people.

Soul So Good Healthy Cookbook

The idea for Dr. Collins’s Soul So Good Healthy Cookbook stemmed from comments she regularly heard while studying holistic modalities. Comments such as, “healthy food does not taste good,” or, “healthy food is hard to cook,” inspired Dr. Collins. She has dispelled these myths by creating high-quality vegetarian entrees that compliment a healthy lifestyle.
