We Tried A Vegan Delivery Service That Costs $18K Per Year


Over the course of a year,
this vegan delivery service would cost me more than $18,000, and that doesn’t even include weekends. Now in the past, I’ve done some of these
vegan lifestyle diets where I had to cook my own
food and prepare every meal, and I just didn’t have the time for it. So the thinking here was,
why not try the opposite? Why not have everything
taken care of for me? Have all the meals delivered to me, already prepped and ready to go, and see if just throwing
money at the problem fixes it. Nope. Sakara is this vegan food delivery service that bills itself on beauty
and a change in lifestyle. It’s all vegan, there’s
no gluten, no caffeine, alcohol they’re okay with, but this lifestyle will cost you. For just five days of meals, that includes breakfast,
lunch, and dinner, delivered to my door, it was more than $400. And that didn’t include
shipping and taxes. Now, there’s a subscription service that will only cost you $350 a week, but still, it’s only
five days worth of food. Now, the meals tasted really
good, especially the breakfast. The protein banana bread? Delish. And the yoga bunny breakfast,
which is really just a muffin? I like that one too. The lunches were mainly salads. And then the dinners
ranged from quesadillas, to broth and bean toast. But it was never enough food. The first day I hustled
home to eat dinner, and then hit the gym. But after my workout, I was starving. So I had to cheat. I went and got a protein bar. So I emailed Sakara and
asked them about this. Most of our Sakara Men are surprised by how satisfying the meals are, due to their nutrient density, thank you plant-based superfoods. Did you know that four cups of kale pack 12 grams of protein? No, Taylor, I didn’t. So everyone gets the same meals. I asked the doctor what she
thought of Sakara’s plan. My biggest issue comes down
to their fundamental belief that calories don’t really matter. – [Narrator] After the week, we reached out to Sakara
founders Danielle and Whitney, about the nutritional content. They do encourage people who
feel hungry to supplement with clean, organic, plant-based foods. But they also told us, they choose not to share
typical nutrition panels so that clients who are on
a diet, won’t feel like it. Though they do note that they will share
nutritional information if someone has medical
reason for asking for it. Now with a plan this expensive, I expected everything to
be taken care of for me. The meals were delivered to me, and according to Sakara,
they are ready to go. However, it also suggested
heating a few of them up, which doesn’t seem like a big deal, but if I’m paying more than $33 per meal, I don’t really wanna have
to do anything for it. Of course there were some upsides. I felt great by the end of the week. In fact, I felt fantastic. Did I lose some weight? Sure, three pounds. But that’s about $150 per pound. Not exactly a deal, if you’re asking me.
