5 Keys to Eating Healthier and Feeling Better ASAP

Earlier this year, we talked with Sakara co-founders (and longtime best friends) Danielle DuBois and Whitney Tingle about how their personal struggles with food and body image issues eventually led them to start the organic, plant-based meal-delivery service that’s got supermodels and health advocates alike abuzz. Six years later, the pair is pushing some of the prettiest and healthiest food you can get your hands on, and while they’re advocates for eating super plant-y most of the time, they hold a pretty firm pro-chocolate-cake stance, too; be sure to check out their interview in its entirety, and then below, their tips on quick and easy changes you can make to your eating habits right away that will set you on the path to feeling way, way better:


1. Eat 4 to 8 cups of fresh, leafy greens every. single. day.

This is the #1 Sakara secret to better health and a sexy glow! Greens encourage the growth, diversity and stability of healthy bacteria in the gut, which is the key to overall wellness. They’re also incredibly high in water content, which helps to ultra hydrate your cells and for longer periods of time. One of our mentors and microbiome specialists, Dr. Robyne Chutkyn, says it best: “Greens are the least-consumed food in the standard American diet, and the most essential for inner and outer health. 

They come the closest of any food to meeting our ideal nutritional requirements. It probably wouldn’t surprise you to know that romaine lettuce has more fiber than sirloin, but you may not know that calorie for calorie, it has double the protein, ten times the amount of iron, and a hundred times more calcium.

If you asked me to recommend the one thing that would have the biggest impact on the health of your gut and skin, it would be to eat as many leafy green vegetables as you can. If you do nothing else, commit to eating leafy greens every day for the next ten days and I promise you, amazing things will start to happen inside and out.”
