Welcome to my kitchen!

The Healthier Recipes was founded in 2019 by Salsa Widnarty, a busy mom looking for ways to feed her family nutritious and delicious home-cooked meals. After struggling with her own health and weight loss, Salsa set out on a journey to learn everything she could about healthy cooking. She experimented with substituting fresh ingredients for processed foods, lowering sugar and sodium, and creating recipes packed with nutrients her family needed. The results were so tasty that Salsa decided to share her recipes online to help others learn the joy of healthy home cooking.

At The Healthier Recipes, we believe eating nutritious meals doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor or spending hours in the kitchen. Our recipes focus on fresh, high-quality ingredients prepared with simple techniques and a touch of creativity. We skip fad diets and extremes. Instead, we offer balanced recipes focused on moderation, variety and mindfulness.

All of our recipes are tested and approved in Salsa’s kitchen. We provide nutrition information to help you make informed choices. Whether you want to eat cleaner, lose weight, or simply cook more meals at home, The Healthier Recipes is here to help. Our food philosophy is that healthy eating should be accessible and most of all – delicious! We’re devoted to giving you and your family recipes you can feel good about.

When she’s not in the kitchen, Salsa loves staying active outdoors, practicing yoga, and spending time with her husband and two kids. She draws inspiration from her garden, local farmers markets, and the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Salsa believes home cooking is an act of love, and hopes The Healthier Recipes can help nourish your body and spirit.
