There is A LOT to Love About Sakara Life, the Organic Meal Delivery Service


Recently, I stopped by the offices of Sakara Life, the fantastic organic meal delivery service based here in NYC.

Even though I have known co-founders Danielle DuBoise and Whitney Tingle for a few years, I hadn’t fully researched their company until now. And what a huge mistake that was because it is an incredibly impressive operation with delicious food.

Currently, Sakara Life is delivering fully-prepared, 100% organic, gluten-free, plant-based meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) to customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. The service will eventually be expanded to other parts of the country, with California on the company’s near-term radar screen.

Here were a few things that I tasted.









There are a few reasons why I am such a huge fan of Sakara Life.

1) The food is excellent. But more than just tasting good, the meals are “clean” and light. After eating them, I feel satiated and energized, and don’t feel like I have to take a nap.

Additionally, I love the fact that each dish has a “superfood spotlight”. Not only will this encourage its customers to start appreciating the unique and powerful ingredients that Sakara Life is using, but it is an emphasis on the “food as medicine” philosophy, something that I am in complete agreement with.

2) There is no choosing what you want at each meal. When you sign up for the service, you are delivered meals based on what the kitchen has made for you.

I really appreciate the fact that I don’t have to make any decisions about what I am having. It just shows up.

3) For the founders of Sakara Life, Danielle and Whitney, this business is a lot more than just bringing organic food to your home. Their mission is to impact people’s lives in a very positive way, and the hearts and intentions of these two women are absolutely in the right place.

I would feel incredibly comfortable and be thrilled at the prospect of having Sakara Life feed me for a week, and you should as well.

Sakara Life offers 1-day, 5-day, 20-day, and 3-month packages, and the service is currently available to select areas of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.

For Living Maxwell readers, I have arranged a special discount with Sakara Life where you can receive $25 off your first order. Use the code MAXLOVE at checkout. This offer is good until March 17th.

    I’m not your typical Sakara Life customer (Max can attest to this), but my wife and I have done the program several times and have become huge fans. Everything is delicious, the people are happy and pleasant to interact with, and you feel healthier and more energetic after just five days of the program. They deserve all the good press that is coming to them.

    • Max Goldberg says:

      That’s fantastic, Hugo! I’m thrilled that you had such a positive experience. Danielle and Whitney will be very happy to hear this.

      All the best,

    It is sometimes exhausting to make so many food/shopping/prep decisions each day! I’m glad that that fact was pointed out. I get a box of organic fruit and vegetables delivered every 2 weeks with no choice and honestly, it’s a relief! Just good quality without the hassle. It would be great if the service you are endorsing would expand to LI.

  • The first time I’m hearing about sakara, looks pretty up there for quality

  • Great idea actually, I generally need to look if there are any organic markets near me :)

    This makes transitioning to better food selection much easier while teaching. For those new to real/raw food, like me, knowing what to buy or how to prepare a meal can be daunting.
    I hope they can deliver fedex/ups to NC, upon my return from Afghanistan, I want to do their 3month delivery as soon as I get settled in.

    This will provide an awesome foundation… Awesome product/service just wish there were more (local) to choose from.

    Totally awesome!

  • Janice DuBoise says:

    Nice to read another rave review! Congratulations!

    I think this line:

    “I really appreciate the fact that I don’t have to make any decisions about what I am having. It just shows up.”

    is really a good point. Many studies show that willpower and energy is greatly reduced with each decision that you need to make. So as the day goes along, the average person is less and less productive and begins to either make bad decisions or put off decisions (become indecisive) due to decision fatigue. This could affect job performance (getting a raise) or just getting along with your spouse at night as indecision sets in.

    Eating healthy requires so many daily decisions for me that this service would definitely help me…just wish it was in LA where I live.
