"Cooking at home can be the most powerful tool that leads to lasting health." ~ Chef Kirsten Sandoval

As a professional chef to athletes in the NBA, NFL, and WNBA, a mother to two kids with a rare genetic cancer disease, and a living kidney donor herself, our founder Chef Kirsten Sandoval couldn't find healthy convenience products on the market in inclusive flavors that fit all of her needs.

She knew there was a way we could have it all: convenient blends that work as hard as we do, globally-inspired flavors that invite everyone to the table, quality ingredients that boost flavor AND nutrition, variety, versatility, and above all GREAT taste.

So, she went out and created them for her clients, and now we are sharing them with you!
