Think about some of the most cherished moments in your life – how many involve food? The table is where we celebrate, we connect. In so many other cultures, this happens on a daily basis. Making a meal to share is a gift and the food is vibrant.
Mesa de Vida is here to help make it easier for you to enjoy more of that in your busy life.
Created by Chef Kirsten, who lost over 100 pounds when she set out to create a healthy new family legacy. Like millions of others, she didn’t want to rely on the salt, sugar (and often chemical) laden sauces and dried packet spice blends she grew up with to achieve the global flavors she loved and admired. As a personal chef to professional athletes, she developed these healthy flavor bases for her clients. Coming home from cooking, she wished she had these flavorful blends in her pantry, and thus, Mesa de Vida was born.
Whole30? Gluten free? Paleo? Heart Healthy? Vegan? Vegetarian? Flexitarian? Mesa de Vida healthy cooking sauces are all-natural and low sodium. Made simply with nutritious vegetables, fruits, and our signature blends of balanced spices and herbs, Mesa de Vida is free of GMOs, added sugars, preservatives, and dairy. They also contain no animal products, perfect for vegan lifestyles, as well. We help families with a multitude of allergies and dietary needs be able to sit down to the same meal.
We aim to make it easy to bring the inspiration of beautiful, vibrant cultures from around the world to your table. Use our flavor bases as an all-natural recipe starter for soups, chili and stews. Saute with a few ingredients for exciting meals in minutes. Simmer with meat, beans, or grains. Use in your slow cooker or pressure cooker for a juicy, tender creation. Create a low-sugar glaze. Instead of using packets or dried blends that have one use, the possibilities with our concentrated cooking sauces are truly endless.
“I was thrilled when Mesa de Vida cooking sauces effortlessly added a world of flavor to my Whole30 dinners, but then I discovered you can dip vegetables into them too. Straight from the jar. Move over, salsa, because my carrot sticks and snap peas just found a new best friend.” Melissa Hartwig, Whole30 Co-Founder & CEO
