Catching sun ☀️ Finishing up our weekend out east with a class at the new @newyorkpilates in Southampton! They’re selling lots of your favorite Sakara products there - so you can easily pick up things like the Drops, probiotics and granolas to help after bbq’s or late nights out - we support you however you want to #eatcleanplaydirty !
Up close and personal. I never thought that my deepest insecurity would become the impetus for starting my greatest blessing. Many of you already know my skin story and my rocky journey of trying one million and one things to try to clear my skin after a decade of struggling with cystic acne. I’m finally sitting down to write it the whole thing and am reminded of the pain I felt and how much self hate I had because of it. But that finding the light and Sakara at the end of the road was made it worth it. This food changes bodies and changes lives and if I had to feel some of that pain so that others don’t have to because of Sakara, then I have gratitude for that pain. Sending all of those who have felt the pain of acne and all other autoimmune related issues so much love and healing energy. Will be sharing my journey and exactly what I did to ultimately clear my skin, and heal my body, soon. Stay tuned. .

Thank you @voguemagazine for this feature, celebrating the incredible @ullajohnson. There’s something so special about these magic summer nights spent with old and new friends. Summer is a time to unwind, reset and live in the joy factor. I cannot wait to share that feeling with you all this weekend as Sakara heads East. Join us for some delicious bites, inspiring conversation and amazing workouts to keep that sexy, free summer feeling flowing. More info in story highlights ✨
INTRODUCING: DESTINATION SUMMER. Be free. Run wild. Sacrifice nothing. Let us feed your body, and let summer feed your spirit. Meet our brand new, limited- edition seasonal program at the link in bio. Have fun this weekend, we’ll see you Monday💋🥂.
Current self care obsessions: @philipb Paddle Brush - designed to boost shine! Redistributes your hair’s natural oils from scalp down the hair. Can’t wait to see how it works - goop calls this brush “life-changing”! . @goop Glow Peel Pads- 15% glycolic acid peel. Swipe on at night, wake up to glow. Hoping it will help me with a sunspot I picked up in France 🙈🤞 . @sakaralife Detox Water Drops - high potency chlorophyll binds to toxins and helps eliminate them from the body. Exactly what I need after so much travel. I keep them in my purse and add them to every glass of water 💧 . @jilliandempsey Gold Face Bar - aka face vibrator. Works kind of like a jade roller plus increases circulation with the vibration. I like to use it if I’m puffy or if I need to be puffier (the circulation helps to puff up my acne scars a bit - great before a shoot) Energy Medicine by @jillblakeway - TOTALLY OBSESSED WITH THIS BOOK! She goes into the science behind energy and energy healing. She explains we all have electromagnetic fields that are actually measurable. The heart’s field can be measured up to 15 feet away from the body! We use an EKG to measure heart waves and an EEG to measure brainwaves, but the really interesting thing happens with the heart and brain sync up and go into resonance. That’s when we enter into a state of calm, safe, love. And also into a healer state. Jill talks about how she goes into resonance when working on her patients— and that her patients actually (measurably) sync up with heart and brain waves as well. This brings up so many questions for me... Do we have other energy centers (like chakras) that are measurable too? Is resonance the feeling of connection we’re all looking for? Is it the key to meditation? And the key to Tantra? What do you think? . #energymedicine #selfcaresundays #chakras #tantra #skincare #goop #sakaralife

Happy summer solstice 🌖 Summer solstice is a powerful day energetically, that can help power you toward the changes you want to make in life or in yourself. . Today is the day that has the most light in all the year. And the perfect day to recharge your own light. . A quick practice to recharge your light is to simply sit in the sun (or light a candle) and take a few deep breaths envisioning the light filling your body with each breath. Then think of the things you want to create or change in your life and allow the light to surround those things and surround you. Take five slow deep breaths before returning to the world and letting that light shine for all those around you to see✨ . 📸 @simonsayssaffa . #summersolstice #summer #nature #france #chenonceaux #chateauchenonceau #forest #meditation #selfcare
Here’s to 2 years of marriage, 10 of love & life building— and a lifetime of seeing each other’s light ✨ Happy anniversary @itayblas ❤️ . “Its hard to take courage In a world full of people You can lose sight of it all And the darkness inside you Can make you feel so small But I see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that’s why I love you So don’t be afraid To let them show Your true colors Your true colors are beautiful Like a rainbow.”
When we heard our books would be sold “wherever books are sold” it didn’t fully register that that meant international as well 🌍 . This book has taken us coast to coast and now over seas allowing us the opportunity to transform lives in new ways. . Our main mission at Sakara is to transform as many lives as possible through our nutrition philosophy —and this book has given us the chance to connect with and educate people far beyond our home. And for that we are so grateful 🙏
Just hit follow on Chef @mikebagale . I am so excited about this new collaboration with one of the best chefs on the planet 🌎 Sakara’s first Artist In Residence is Chef Mike Bagale. He was the Executive Chef of Michelin-starred restaurant Alinea in Chicago for eight years, creating the most mind-blowing creations in food, like the edible green apple balloon which would lightly float over to your table. . Well we weren’t able to figure out how to get an edible balloon in your box, but we did work together to create some of the most amazing dishes in Sakara history. And I can’t wait for people to experience them - starting next week! . Read the details below and join us to experience Chef Mike’s magic ✨🌱🔥 . The *Artist In Residence* program is a soulful co-creation marrying our powerful nutrition philosophy with the artistic vision of the world’s most innovative chefs and creators. This summer join us on this amazing journey. Over five weeks, the Sakara signature meal program will feature 15 new and exclusive dishes created by Chef Mike that showcase his bold culinary perspective, alongside Sakara favorites. It all begins June 10th! Link in bio to order.
Making memories. Time just seems to continue to fly by (can’t believe we’re already in June?!). Each week is a marathon filled with events and people and things to do—- but moments like these seem to slow time just a little bit. To create a moment that will be remembered, that will *get* remembered. Not a passing flash like trees flying by the car window as we drive through life, but an imprint that will last. A memory. Lots of memories made this weekend celebrating Hani & Adam’s wedding, spending time with friends/extended family (some who even flew in from London & LA to be there), skinny dipping in the pool and seeing the pure joy of simply splash around in the water. So much gratitude flowing for these moments. And hoping time slows a bit more this summer to make a few more. Memories.
I’m not a morning person. My brain typically hits that flow state of deep creativity after 6pm — for those who are still with me in the office at that time know how much I love to brainstorm and problem solve at that hour, and that you have my full attention. Mornings are usually filled with a desire for “just 10 more minutes” of sleep. And thoughts of how I’m going to be able to fit everything I have to do today into the day. But I have my tricks and favorite rituals that work for me and got to share a few of those with @goop — along with some of our favorite breakfast recipes from our cookbook! Catch a peek into my morning (and Danielle’s too!) up on Goop now! . https://goop.com/beauty/skin/sakara-life-founders-morning-routine/ . 📸 @liannatarantin
What a dream. Walking by the @mcnallyjackson bookstore to find our cookbook in the window. #thoughtstothings
I remember reading Gwyneth’s blog before it was cool (and perfectly designed). It was just Gwyneth, sharing her own journey through the wellness space. Trying out juice cleanses, colonics, and other “alternative healing things” and telling about her experience. She was an early pioneer in making wellness a part of the conversation. And helping to bring awareness to companies like ours. . It doesn’t mean that you need to do everything on the site, or that you shouldn’t question things (on or off her site), but it means you have the option to learn about other ways of thinking and methods that might work for you. . And for that I am grateful and so excited that our cookbook Eat Clean Play Dirty is in her collection of products and offerings on both goop.com and in store (including this shop on Bond St)— as an alternative to the standard way of life. A way to be part of others’ wellness journey and for them to discover the power of food as medicine for themselves. . #eatcleanplaydirty #goop #sakaralife #healthyrecipes #plantbased #cleaneating
Bye LA. I’ll miss your nice weather, great bathroom lighting and open acceptance of athleisure wear. #livetheprocess
The highlight of every event we host is always meeting our clients. Getting to be part of your lives [and impact you in a positive way] is the most rewarding part of what we do. So happy we can help support such amazing people (some pictured here, many not)— and one-by-one make the world a healthier place 🌎 Thanks to everyone who came out to see us on our LA book tour!! And to all those who helped make it happen - @rothys @claseazultequila @thealist.us We love you! ❤️ . @sakaralife #sakaralife #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #plantbased #losangeles #recipes
Thank you @stanford business school (and Kiki) for having us as guest speakers today. Before we started Sakara I had taken my GMAT and was applying to business school. I didn’t end up going to business school and I don’t have a formal MBA (though after building a business for 7+ years it feels like I do!), it was very cool to get to speak there. Hopefully our words made an impact on some of those students and that they were able to learn from some of our life/business lessons. Thanks for having us!
Another shot from my shoot with @hm for their Conscious Exclusive Collection. Can’t wait to be back out in that LA sunshine — fly out tomorrow! ✈️ ☀️ 🌺 . . #HMConsciousExclusive #hmxme #ad @hm #sustainablefashion #ootd
When life gets busy (like it is right now balancing btwn the book tour while still running a full-on business), I try to find moments to make it fun. @danielleduboise and I talk to each other a lot about how “work can be play and play can be work.” It’s all a matter of perspective (and attitude). . It takes actively searching for the fun in everything you do. Creating the fun and the positivity and joy. And taking advantage of those moments that the Universe gives you to have fun! To meet new people, have new experiences, to tap into your inner child to play and be creative without a goal in mind. That when life hands you a swing, you hop on it! . Had so much fun getting to meet the @hm team and to celebrate the launch of their Conscious Exclusive Collection of sustainable fabric clothes which **officially launches today!** Thank you to them for creating space for play while working - had a blast with you guys 💗 . Putting a link in my bio if you want to check out the collection! 📸 @danielleduboise . . #HMConsciousExclusive #hmxme #ad @hm #sustainablefashion #ootd
Walking into Monday like 👊💥 It’s a big week this week (watch for our post tomorrow!!) and lots of things are happening. Focusing on staying healthy this week by eating my Sakara meals to support a healthy microbiome (where your immune system lives), doubling up on my probiotic, and *trying* to make it to bed at a decent hour. Even though I have a wellness company I admit I am not the best at taking the time for myself and making self care a priority. I use the meals as my hack for staying on track with food - all I have to do is open it and eat it, and it saves me time and brain space not having to think about what I’m going to eat (also makes sure that I actually eat on busy weeks like this!!) What self care hacks do you use? I’d love to know! . P.S. Flying back to LA again this week ✈️ - if you’d like to join any of our events, email RSVP@sakaralife.com to get more info and your invite! . 📸 @caitlinmstudio
Thank you to everyone who came out last night to celebrate the launch of our cookbook Eat Clean Play Dirty in NYC! 🎉 These past few weeks have been a complete whirlwind. It was nice to take a moment to pause and recognize this monumental moment. We’re cookbook authors now - and our book will be available wherever books are sold starting April 9th 😆 so happy this book is helping to spread our mission to even more people 🙏 . #EATCLEANPLAYDIRTY #cookbook #healthyrecipes #nutrition #plantbasedrecipes #sakaralife
While in LA we got to partner with @hm for the launch of their Conscious Collection. We got to hear the Creative Advisor/former Head of Design for H&M, Ann-Sofie Johansson, speak on some of the company’s initiatives. They’re making some interesting pushes into using eco-friendly plant-based materials that I thought I’d share with you: . 🍊 A textile made out of orange pulp - the byproduct of making juice. 🍍 Pinatex made out pineapple leaves that they use to make plant-based leather alternative 🌱 An algae biomass that they use in their pool slides . Incorporating more plants in your diet -and into your fashion- is a good step in the right direction for the planet. . Also, this dog was one of the coolest I’ve ever met. Santiago 🐺 . #HMConsciousExclusive #HMXME #Ad @hm #fashion #ootd #losangeles

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the cinnamon rolls I posted on stories last week. And the answer is YES! The recipe for our “Sexy Cinnamon Rolls” are in the cookbook! 🎉 . Our cinnamon rolls are made with macuna puriens, a super seed that is good for your mood and is a natural aphrodisiac. Macuna puriens contain powerful stores of L-dopa an amino acid that helps the brain create more feel-good transmitters. Ooh yeah. . They also come with a delicious date caramel that you’re gonna want to slather on... well... everything! . Now you can pre-order the cookbook on Barnes & Noble or Amazon and bake up a batch of these for yourself — no matter where you live in the world!! 🌎 Woohoo! 🎉 . . #cookbook #cleaneating #plantbased #cooking #healthycooking #plantbaseddiet #eatpretty #cinnamonrolls #recipes #healthyrecipes #mealplanning

Had to put up another picture with my soul sister @danielleduboise. Last week we spoke on a panel where were talked about some of the early days of starting Sakara and I thought to myself “Were we crazy?!?! How did we get through that?!” It was filled with early mornings and long nights, stressful uncertainty and taking risks, not to mention working out of a kitchen on a time clock like we were on an episode of Chop’d! But we made it through. Because we knew that the food we were making was changing people’s lives and bodies, and we had to keep going. Today I am so happy that we have the stage of a billboard to share this message. 🍉🍌🥑🍒🍋🍇🍑🥒🍓🥦 Feed your spirit, not your fears. Experience abundance, not deprivation. Shift to a conscious ritual, not a mindless habit. Don’t compromise your time, or your cravings. Eat joyfully, live wildly. No Sacrifices. Sakara
Best birthday gift yesterday. Our very first billboard!! It’s crazy to see it in real life. It was just a dream for so long... Danielle and I used to walk around in Soho and look at the billboards and say “One of these days we’ll have one of these”. And now that day is finally here. . We chose the message of No Sacrifices for the billboard as a motto for the new year. You don’t have to sacrifice eating delicious foods, being with friends & family, or having fun to feel good in your body. There is an abundance of amazing foods you can eat and enjoy — and when you want to eat something, well, not so healthy, that’s fine too! This is a lifestyle. One with No Sacrifices. . If you go see it, please tag me and @danielleduboise so that we can see it and share it too!! 💗 . P.S. thank you to everyone involved in making this happen. All the models, food stylists, photographer and staff, editors, retouchers, etc! And the amazing creative agency @roandcostudio
I used to be scared of the ocean. It’s dark, a force and filled with the unknown. I wouldn’t swim, only dipped my toe in from the side. It wasn’t until I spent a week, one summer, living on the beach and Itay made me go in every single day— rain or shine— that I was able to overcome my fear. I started to understand the water, how to build up my body temperature to bear that first splash, how to duck under waves, or just float above and go with the flow. Now it’s one of my favorite places. One dive under the water changes my energy and washes away my worries. It’s different from my natural habitat, the desert. It’s in motion rather in stillness. Yet magical in its own way. Sometimes we fear what’s different or unknown. And when we finally take the plunge it changes our lives forever. Carrying this ocean intention with me this year— to push myself to take risks, dive in, and explore new worlds. What intentions are you setting for this year?

Congrats to @delightfuldeepi on her wedding day! 🎊 . This picture is from a few days ago when I met her in Mumbai, when we were walking through her neighborhood and followed the sound of women singing. Her mother invited us into their home and to participate in the tradition of grinding the turmeric that would be put on Deepika’s skin on her wedding day to make her glow. . Deepika is a dietician that helps people with cancer. Amazing that the person I met has dedicated her life to helping people through food and diet! . Thank you for being so kind and open. Hope you’re glowing today! Sending you love, joy and happiness for your marriage! ❤️
One minute before a group of school children asked me to be in their photo with them. I guess it’s kind of like being famous— except no one knows (or cares) who I am 😂 . P.S. I only packed a small bag for a 12-day trip - so this is basically my India uniform 🥋

Looking through old images makes me so nostalgic — but also so proud of how far we’ve come. We’re about to do our traditional Top List Week at @sakaralife (the week where we put all of our voted-in clients’ favorite meals into one deliciousssss week) and looking at the meals we now have on the menu is SO AMAZING. Our food has evolved so much over the years with the help of our incredible chefs who care about providing the highest level of nutrition to people in a way that tastes really good. Chefs who want to use their talents for a good cause— so that eating healthy doesn’t have to be punishment but be pleasure. If it’s been a while since you’ve tried our meals— now’s a good time to try them and see how far we’ve come. Link in bio to join!
She’s back! This week my business partner/BFF returned from maternity leave. It’s been an interesting experience of forcing myself to make decisions without her in the chair next to me, or having that mental and emotional support throughout the day. In some ways it helped me become stronger and build my own individual confidence. But overall showed me that just how much I truly love working with her and how much I missed her while she was away. I feel so lucky to have her as my partner on this mission together and am SO happy she’s back. Ready to keep building together! ✨💗✨
If you know me you know how obsessed I am with the microbiome. I believe it is the future of health and disease prevention. And is at the core of our Sakara nutrition philosophy. We have some great slides in the @sakaralife stories right now breaking it down - check it out and learn what it can do for you. Once you learn this information you will never eat the same again (and you'll understand why we have so many dang leafy greens in our Sakara meals!)

Soaking up the last drops of sun in my new Sakara sweatshirt. Limited supply up on the site now. First come first serve ⚡️ . P.S. If you're a Sakaralite, expect some cool new changes starting in next week's delivery! ✨ And last chance to join me on the 14-Day Plant Based Challenge!🌱 I'm normally not 100% plant based, but I'm doin it!

I remember @ariannahuff had a great quote once regarding her daily meditation practice, she said: "I meditate every single day, except when I'm really busy -- then I meditate twice a day!" . That's how I feel about eating healthy. I remember my pre-Sakara days thinking if I was busy I would just skip a meal and I could "save my calories" for dinner and drinks. Now I understand that food is not about calories -- it's information. And when I'm busy, that is the time that my body needs full nourishment the most! . It is said that >70% of our immune system is in our gut. Our microbiome - specifically the microbes living in your gut - play a crucial role in this. When we are stressed, running at full speed, not sleeping enough or eating foods that take down our immunity (e.g. alcohol, sugar, dairy, bread), is the time we need to give our good bacteria what they need to thrive! . You may not love the leafy greens that come with your Sakara meals, but your microbes do. And your body (and immune system) will thank us when you're done eating them! This is the food they need to have the strength to keep you healthy and in balance when you're at your busiest. . Someone asked me how I stay motivated to eat my leafy greens on days like today -- for me I think back to the not-so-distant days that I felt terrible -- with cystic acne on my face, fem ecology problems, and anxiety pulsing through my body-- and then suck it up and eat them. And know that I choose how I want to feel. And that is motivating to me. . Still time to join me on the @sakaralife Plant Based Challenge and start to feel the changes for yourself. You can do anything for 14 Days! Even eating your leafy greens! 💚🌱 Link in bio. Black Garlic Burger pictured here. . #plantbased #sakarachallenge #mentalhealth #foodforthought #sakaralife #eatclean
From out of the darkness and into the light. . I like this time of year because it is a time for self reflection. Looking back at the year, what do I want to change? Where could I have been better? Done more -- or maybe less? . Not to make ourselves feel bad or guilty or shame, but to have the opportunity to grow/change/evolve-- and to start fresh. . It's hard to make changes if we first don't decide what we want to change. How do we grow if we don't acknowledge that there's room for growth? If we hide the things that we don't like about ourselves in the darkness we will never fully come into our light - to shine our brightest. And let that light shine for others. . Being on this Plant Based Challenge right now has helped me to not just think about what I'm putting into my body and reflect on my habits, but also on the type of person I want to be. . There are a lot of things I would have done differently if I could go back. But I can't. So I can only take those lessons forward with me into life. Today, I'm taking 5 minutes (maybe 10 if I can find it!) and am writing down what I want to change. Who do I want to be? And what needs to happen to get there. . To move those parts of me out of the darkness and into the light. . Raise a 🙋if you're into self-growth. A 📝if you're going to do the writing practice with me. And a 💚if you're joining on the Plant Based Challenge! . #sakaralife #selfcare #growthmindset #inspo #plantbased #sakarachallenge
So proud of this Sakara family💗Coming out of our annual company offsite I'm feeling so inspired. In addition to work sessions and brainstorming on how to make Sakara an even better experience for our clients, each shared person on the team shared their own personal Sakara story-- just like how Danielle and I each have our own stories of how eating this way changed our bodies and our lives, and how thousands of our clients have shared their stories with us of the food and lifestyle changing theirs, each person on the team has a personal Sakara story. Some were battling with serious conditions like cancer and crohn's, some battling with body image or chronic calorie counting, and others just looking for a way to make a difference in the world with the work they were doing. Each path led them to Sakara as the solution. Either for healing their bodies or their spirits. . It's so amazing to see how Sakara has grown -- it's so much bigger than just me and Danielle living this mission. It's a whole team of people who know the power of food as medicine, who are on this mission to help other experience it for themselves - one Sakara meal at a time. . Join us for the 14-Day Plant-based Challenge! Link in bio to sign up! 🌱
"Eating more plants was the only thing that cured my lifelong battle with cystic acne. I realized it's not about what I cut out of my diet, but about what I put in. I finally feel comfortable in my own skin." . I am so excited for this Challenge. I am not a vegan, I focus my diet on eating 'mostly' plants and then listen to my body for everything else. I've discovered that that ratio of plants to everything else is extremely important. Everyone's balance is different based on your microbiome makeup (how you were born, if you were breast fed, if you've taken antibiotics or the pill, etc etc), therefore your balance point is different too. . This Challenge challenges you to go plant-based for just 14 days to help you learn and discover more about your body and that balance point. Knowing your body is power. Power to feel better and live better today... and into the future. . Would love for you to join us on this Challenge! Starts next week.

Growing up my dad used to fly his own plane. I remember the stories of adventures that he and my mom took before I was born. Like time they had to do an emergency landing on a highway in the middle of a snowstorm. I don't remember ever getting to fly with him, but each time I'm in one of these little planes I think of what it would have been like.
In the archive. The @itsjeremyscott fashion show is one of my favorite parts of NYFW. He is a true artist that gets my creative juices flowing in all aspects of life including at work (ever wonder where the inspo for our Blue Majik Mylk came from?! Just kidding, but he definitely inspires!) See what I picked out for myself and for @danielleduboise - who is on a road trip and left it up to me to pick out her outfit mwahahaha👹- to wear to the show next week. We’ll be taking over the @sakaralife stories for NYFW. What do you guys think of these boots?! Would you wear them?
I never got to do the full @kleinfeldbridal experience and "say yes to the dress" -- and I'm kind of feeling like I missed out! -- might have to go try on some dresses just for fun, who's with me?! 🙋 . Great panel last night at @kleinfeldbridal led by @theknot Editor In Chief @kristenmax with @drdennisgross talking skin @amandakloots talking fitness @shay_yarbrough talking THE dress and me -- talking nutrition, of course. . A big piece of advice rang clear through all of the panelists: . "It's not about dieting or working out or prepping for one "big day," it's about using that moment as motivation to build your strongest, healthiest body and the right habits that will last you a lifetime."
A peek into the secret garden clean beauty brunch 🌸 On Sunday we gathered to eat a beautiful meal, drink rosé and talk about beauty from the inside out and the outside in. To discuss the microbiome (your gut flora) and how it is the control center for not just your health or your waistline, but also your skin clarity-- and the secret to getting the glow! . Before starting Sakara I tried everything to clear my skin -- even laser peels that required 10 days of downtime hiding from the sun while looking like a red peely monster. I put myself through torture trying to fix it from the outside -- when the answer was actually within. . Through the process (and years of in depth research with @danielleduboise) I discovered that it's not about restriction or eliminating the things you love in life, it's about finding your personal balance point. That place where your body is in harmony. And then learning what takes it out of harmony and how to get back in. That it's a ratio of how much good you need to put into your body to how much bad your body can handle. And to remember that the clearest, healthiest, most radiant skin comes from a healthy balanced body. . That goes for skincare on the outside too-- I try to reduce the amount of toxins I put in and on my body, but know I'm never going to be perfect. And that's okay. But we are so lucky to be part of this time when so many amazing natural (and functional!) beauty brands are arising. Btw-- my new favorite clean beauty obsession was a gift from @staecleanbeauty -- a CBD lip balm! .
