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.
But, I'm also an unabashed food lover. There was no way I was going to compromise great flavor in the name of convenience or health.
I knew there was a way we could have it all: exciting global gourmet flavors, convenience, ingredients that boost flavor AND nutrition, versatility, and above all GREAT taste.
I just had to go out and 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!"
