The Passionate Pursuit of Life, Brunch and Balance…


I’m Kristina! Welcome to When Salty and Sweet Unite, The Passionate Pursuit of Life, Brunch and Balance.

I have an extraordinary weight loss story of losing 75 pounds and keeping it off for over 16 years.

I help people reinvent themselves in the kitchen by teaching healthier versions of everyday dishes. I offer ingredient swaps, which is perfect for anyone who wants versatility in their meals or has to cook for multiple diet types.

And…you better save room for dessert! You will also find indulgent treats to cure your sweet tooth. 

My recipes are inspired by the diversity of my neighborhood in Seattle where I grew up, flavors from my Spanish heritage and my lifelong commitment to my health.

In addition to teaching meal preparation, I want to motivate women with their health journeys through teaching consistency, balanced nutrition, and mindset shifts.

I want to inspire people to live the life they dream about. Whether that be losing weight, going for that promotion, starting a family, or pursuing their passions.

My goal is to bring people together through good food, cultural celebration and love.
