Eating Well, Feeling Well,
Making It Simple.
Mesa de Vida & Whole30.


Mesa de Vida Healthy Global Gourmet Cooking & seasoning Sauces Help Make Whole30 Meals – and beyond – Easy and Exciting.


Because you don’t need 1.5+ hours to cook a meal on a Monday, or to be a gourmet chef, or to be constantly searching for recipe ideas that will bring the entire family to the table in order to enjoy meals that make you feel great.

The table is where we celebrate, we connect. In many cultures, this happens on a daily basis. Sharing a vibrant meal is a gift.

Mesa de Vida is here to help make it easier for you to enjoy more of that in your busy, healthy life.

Whether you’re prepping a meal for your Whole30 or need a quick dinner that fits in with YOUR food freedom, we help you cook more healthy, delicious and exciting meals at home, more often – simply!

Mesa de Vida healthy cooking sauce and concentrated seasoning sauce help you cook from-scratch meals inspired by vibrant cultures from around the world. Eliminate at least 15 different ingredients (including a myriad of very expensive whole ground spices) from your dinner prep!

We can help make you look like a healthy kitchen rock star, even if you think you can’t cook.  In fact, we make it so easy, it’s a great time to have the kids start cooking dinner!

“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 and CEO

Do your seasonings and sauces have endless uses? Do they boost the flavor and nutrition of your meals? Or, are you sacrificing your health for the convenience or flavor you’re looking for?

You don’t have to sacrifice anything with Mesa de Vida.

  • Use our concentrated flavor bases, made with ingredients you recognize, as an all-natural recipe starter for soups, chili and stews.
  • Saute with meats and vegetables for exciting meals in minutes.
  • Use in your slow cooker or pressure cooker to make a juicy, tender creation.
  • Dollop on veggies and meat when roasting or braising.
  • Create a crazy-flavorful no-sugar marinade or glaze.
  • Add a spoon or two to anything that you’re cooking as a seasoning sauce instead of dried spice blends to add fresh, vibrant, low-sodium flavor!
  • Instead of using packets or dried blends that have one use and are probably filled with unhealthy additives, the possibilities with our 100% real food concentrated cooking sauces are truly endless.

We are here to help you nourish your family, reduce your stress and save you time and money.  Enjoy vibrant, delicious meals that support your health goals, any night of the week.

What does Whole30 Approved mean, and why is it is a badge that we wear proudly?  It means our brand is one of a select few that have been vetted by the Whole30 team, and we’ve developed a personal relationship to make sure that our partnership will make a positive impact.

 The label is to let you know that a product is 100% compliant with the Whole30 program.  But it’s more than that.  The Whole30 team only partners with brands who’s products, core values, and mission are in line with theirs, and the same goes for Mesa de Vida.

Created in 2009 by Melissa Hartwig, the Whole30 is a 30-day reset for your health, habits, and relationship with food.  The program has helped millions conquer their cravings, restore healthy metabolism, improve their digestion, and reduce inflammation in 30 days, teaching them how to create their own perfect diet and discover lasting food freedom.

 If you’ve read a bit about my own personal story, you’ll know that real food, and creating a healthy new legacy, is at the core of the transformation my life took, and why I created Mesa de Vida healthy cooking sauces.  In addition, I’m a mom to two children that have a rare genetic condition that brings with it 100% chance of colon cancer by the time they are close to 40, as well as increased risk of other cancers.  I’m a fierce believer that food is medicine, and I will always make products that are in alignment with that…and make it easier to live a healthier lifestyle.

I am a big believer that food can truly change a life, it sure changed mine.  Millions of lives have been changed by the Whole30 program, because it is not a diet.  It is a way to learn what works for YOU, what makes YOU feel great.  Most importantly it helps you break free from the harmful fake foods and excess sugar (added to over 80% of foods in the grocery store) that damage our bodies and minds.

I could not be more excited, and honored, to partner with the Whole30 program!
