How to Have More Time to Enjoy Your Summer (and Look Great) w/ Sakara

IMG_6813

By the time I get home from work, the sun is still high in the sky and the evening breeze has kicked in just enough to make it the perfect temperature for relaxing on the porch. I love cooking. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll regularly see stories there filled with homemade meals. GoodEggs is my usual time-saving go-to but sometimes it’s just too hot or too hectic or the inspiration is just not there for organizing/cooking/cleaning. Or maybe sometimes my body just needs a treat.

That’s when I turn to Sakara. Note: this is NOT sponsored and I’d tell you all f it was. I simply dig them. While there are many meal delivery options out there these days, Sakara’s  healthy, plant-based, love-filled and creative meals make me feel good, mentally and physically. Each meal comes with a note explaining the benefits of the special items used in the dish – for example, one of my favorite breakfasts is their Avo-cacao Probiotic Pudding.  It’s made of avocado and chocolate and is described as being filled with  ‘powerful probiotic cultures that fuel your microbiome for better digestion, more energy, brighter skin and better moods.’ How could you not want to eat it all up?

Each day comes with morning ‘beauty’ water – rose flavored magical tasting liquid to re-hydrate you after a night of sleep, and a ‘detox’ water – a green concoction that you drink before bed in order to help restore your cellular function while you rest.

Founders Whitney and Danielle created the company after dealing with their own struggles with balancing food, feeling good and working full time. If you aren’t ready to invest in the 3-meals-a-day-5-day-plan, Sakara offers a 3-day plan as well as options for selecting breakfast or lunch or dinner as you please. AND bonus: their Clean Boutique stocks some awesome products. My favorites are the concentrates of the Beauty and Detox waters and their salad dressings make even the simplest salad magical.

Whatever you decide to do, I hope you take full advantage of the summer sunshine to feel and look your best!
