What We're Obsessing Over This Week
Some of our current obsessions of the week, designed to nourish each pillar of your life.
MANTRA OF THE WEEK ~
“I was going through her closet one day, looking at all her crazy clothes, when I came upon a valuable exotic jacket. 'This is really cool,' I said. 'Take it. You can have it,' she said. 'Whoa, I can’t take this. This is the nicest jacket you have in there,' I said. 'That’s why I gave it to you,' she explained. 'It’s always important to give things away; it creates good energy. If you have a closet full of clothes, and you try to keep them all, your life will get very small. But if you have a full closet and someone sees something they like, if you give it to them, the world is a better place.'”
PRODUCT LUST ~
If you're following us on Snap (name? sakaralife), you'd know that we got ourselves some pretty new wheels this week. We're overly obsessed — summer city adventures just got taken to a whole new level. And with the Olympics coming up next weekend, we're feeling the spirit of a determined (albeit super sexy) athlete. Liv bikes for the win.
SONG OF THE WEEK ~

BOOK CLUB ~
The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses, but bad at preventing chronic disease. In this bible of a book, Dr. Greger takes us through the 15 leading causes of death that claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. His heavily scientifically-backed cure? Simple, WHOLE organic fruits and veggies in abundance.
RECIPE YOU MUST MAKE THIS WEEKEND ~
We're feeling some kind of weekend plant-based burger is in store — and not just any burger, but a big, juicy, and dare we say bleeding burger. We were thoroughly inspired by this hunk of veggie meat, and can't wait to get our mouths on it. But until then, we'll have to experiment in developing our own. This guide is a helpful starting point.
WHAT WE'RE BUYING AT THE MARKET ~
Pepquinos, aka watermelon cucumbers! These are doll sized watermelons, in the satiating form of a cumber. Not only are we stocking up on these beauties for weekend munching, but we're currently using them in our Sakara Panzanella salad. Get em while they're cool ;)
GET BACK IN YOUR BODY ~
"Home workouts may be confined to small spaces without much equipment, but that doesn't mean they're easy. Case in point: this 10-minute routine by Anna Kaiser, founder of AKT InMotion and trainer to Kelly Ripa, SJP, and Shakira."
YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT COCKTAIL CONVO STARTER ~
"Close relationships of any kind require a certain level of awareness that I have only recently come to understand. I have never been much of a self-help person, but when Conscious Loving was recommended to me by basically the wisest person I have ever met, it had a huge impact on my life. The fact that we create and are responsible for the difficulties in our relationships was difficult to digest at first, but as I read on, I realized that Gay and Kate Hendricks’ approach was not only groundbreaking, but was changing the way I related to the people I love and also, myself. Love, GP"
