The Sakara Life Founders Share The Secret To Looking Good, Feeling Great & Building A Mission-Driven Company
Sakara Life co-founders (and mbg class instructors!) Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBoise weren't always the glowing, vibrant, successful women most people are familiar with today. The friends, who met in Sedona, Arizona, as kids, suffered from various ailments in their 20s: Danielle from an addiction to dieting that left her fed up and feeling terrible, and Whitney from acne and the side effects of the various Western ways she relied on to treat it (Accutane included!).
They started designing a diet for each other to feel better, and that diet eventually led to Sakara Life, the meal plan and functional food delivery service that's helping thousands of people eat healthier nationwide.
Their secret? A mix of hard science (they have an advisory board that includes luminaries like Dr. Aviva Romm) and ancient practices inspired by their mystical Arizona upbringing, including ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and more. They also firmly believe that wellness is about feeling good—not taking measurements in inches and pounds or counting macronutrients.
In this episode of the mbg podcast, they discuss the secret to their success and the details of the unique food philosophy that's helped them and so many others heal.
