Your source for nourishment, inspiration, and joy

We filled our debut cookbook with 100 of our most decadent, and healing recipes. Some you know, some you love. Because we don’t believe in restrictions and we definitely don’t believe in guilt, we made sure that not only were these the foods you would love but everyone you care about would love too. We’re often asked, “Can Sakara satisfy a hungry brunch crowd? or “Is there anything my carnivore father would like?”

The answer is yes. That’s why we asked our founders, Danielle and Whitney, to curate some of their favorite dishes to share with others on any occasion, from weekday dinner with the family to a saucy girls’ night in to a relaxed Sunday brunch. Each dish embodies our motto, Eat Clean, Play Dirty because taking good care of yourself (and the ones you love) in a long-term sustainable way is as much about pleasure and the freedom to make choices that feel good as it is about nourishing your body.

In fact, we like to think that sakarafying a meal actually makes it taste better because we’re using nutrient-rich foods that add even more flavor than you might be used to. Try these meals when you need to convince someone eating plant-based doesn’t have to be all kale all day.”
