"Simmer your way around the world and transform simple ingredients into meals that taste like they took hours over the stove. These rich, concentrated flavor bases are just the beginning of a choose-your-own-adventure kinda dinner." Whole Foods Market, What's New Feature
Hi, I’m Chef Kirsten Helle Sandoval, the founder and C(hef)EO of Mesa de Vida. I’m a performance and recovery chef to professional athletes, nutrition consultant, and a busy mom.
I lost over 100 pounds when I set out to create a healthy family legacy through real food. I'm also a living kidney donor, and mom to two kids with a rare genetic condition, so I am committed to my health, and the health of my family.
I'm also an unabashed food lover. There was no way I was going to compromise health or great flavor in the name of convenience. (If you feel the same, you're in the right place!)
I knew there was a way we could have it all: exciting flavors, convenience, ingredients that boost flavor AND nutrition, versatility, and above all GREAT taste.
I just had to create it for us. And thus, Mesa de Vida was born!

"I eat 90% of my meals at home, live for cooking, and mostly only like to cook from my own recipes. However, Mesa de Vida has become a welcome "helper" and "secret weapon" in my kitchen, because I can get all those levels of flavors that I would otherwise spend up to hours building, from a jar! Super clean, full of flavor, and super multi-functional in the kitchen!"
