The Passionate Pursuit of Life, Brunch and Balance…

Hi, I’m Kristina Cadelina! Welcome to When Salty and Sweet Unite, The Passionate Pursuit of Life, Brunch and Balance. Everyday Delicious Food and Midlife Wellness.

I’m thrilled you are here and to be your guide in the kitchen. My goal is provide delicious recipes and also give helpful insight on living a fulfilling midlife. 

As someone who has navigated through my own life’s twists and turns, I have come to appreciate nourishing both my body and my mind.

And it’s true what they say- good health starts in the kitchen. I also have an extraordinary weight loss story of losing 75 pounds and keeping it off for over 17 years. So I love to teach recipes everyone will love and offer ingredient swaps. With my diverse culinary influences, including flavors from my Spanish heritage, my recipes are inspired by the flavors of the Mediterranean.

When Salty and Sweet Unite is more than just a collection of recipes; it’s a celebration of the wisdom that comes with age and intentional living.

l also discuss topics that touch on mental well-being, self-care, and embracing our 40’s.

I want to inspire people to live their dreams and pursue their true passions, whether related to weight loss or going for the promotion, starting that blog or other life goals.
