This spring, Sakara Life founders, Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle release their debut cookbook, Eat Clean Play Dirty. We love these ladies for making our favorite delivery food ever (supermodel Lily Aldridge is a devotee too) and spreading the good news of nutrient-dense and body positive eating. We’re always amazed at the genius recipes that arrive in our Sakara Life deliveries and we can’t wait to crack open the pages of the new book to try them for ourselves! Danielle and Whitney are joining our My Favorites series to talk about living well the Sakara way…
