Your source for nourishment, inspiration, and joy

The mantra in the Sakara kitchen is “chef-crafted for pure joy.” Our meals are developed and made with love and care to provide one of the most important nutrients of all—pleasure. We use this same barometer when creating recipes you can cook at home. This year, there were more original recipes than ever before because we know there are days (or weeks) where you can’t have Sakara delivered to your door. But that’s no reason not to relish in life-changing nutrition with ingredients you can trust and flavors that transport. 

We have gathered some of our most popular recipes below. There should be something for every part of the day and every mood or craving that arises.



Mornings can be a vulnerable time, nutrition-wise. You either jump into the day forgoing a morning meal or grab something that could spike blood sugar (cue the croissant). Having an array of easy, gut-loving breakfast options ensures a fulfilling, nourishing foundation for your day.

We’ve long believed that it's what you put in your gut, not just what you put on your dermis, that sets the stage for a truly radiant complexion.

Think of these recipes as edible skincare.
