Even if you’ve never tried one of their nutrition programs, you’ve probably heard of Sakara Life. This organic, plant-based company is more than just a meal delivery service. Sakara Life is founded on 9 pillars of nutrition: (1) no calorie counting, (2) plant protein, (3) eat your water, (4) greens, (5) good fats, (6) eat the rainbow, (7) nutrient density, (8) sulfur-rich veggies, and (9) body intelligence.

Functional medicine doctors and chef Bobby Flay comprise the company’s Science and Advisory Council, ensuring the meals you get are rich both in flavor and nutrients. Sakara Life crafts those meals from fresh, locally sourced ingredients and delivers them quickly and in eco-friendly packaging. Oh, and it’s not just meals. Sakara Life also offers wellness goodies like Chocolate Probiotics and Sakara Life Super Powder—an all-in-one daily nutrition supplement and plant-based collagen powder alternative.

The programs are in high demand—thanks, in part, to the company’s large social media presence and celebrity fans. And, with a large fan base comes a demand for even more: Sakara Life subscribers have been begging for more of these fresh, vegan meals than they’ve been able to get their hands on.

Until now…

Sakara Life founders Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle are finally giving the people  (us, included) what they want—a curated selection of their delicious, healthy, unique recipes to try at home. We were able to get a sneak peek of the cookbook (trust us; these gals have some amazing stuff up their sleeves!) before its April 9 launch date, and these are the 10 recipes that caught our eyes (and soon, our tastebuds and hearts).

Sexy. Cinnamon Rolls. Honestly, do we even need to say more? Not only are these actually healthy (unlike the ones that hypnotize you as you’re walking through the mall or airport), they’re made with a seed powder with benefits for both your brain and libido (hello!).

2. Pink Beet Hummus

We predict we’ll be seeing a lot of this recipe on our Instagram feeds in the coming months. How pretty is that pink? This gorgeous hummus is easy to make, and it’s such a versatile dip for movie nights or dinner parties.

3. Sexiest Salad in New York City

Take something that could be boring and repetitive (salad) and make it not just yummy, but sexy. Yes, please. The homemade cinnamon vinaigrette really brings together the fresh fruits, veggies, and nuts.

4. Roasted Peach Chana Masala + Coconut Quinoa and Mint Chutney

It’s like a healthier version of your favorite takeout food. White miso, tahini, and a bit of sriracha give this dish a delightful savory finish.

7. No-Bake Sunflower Bliss Bites

First of all: we love recipes that don’t require cooking and anything that can be consumed without silverware or a place setting. These little energy bites make for a great on-the-go breakfast or a midday pick-me-up. Make a batch, and then store them in the fridge or freezer for future enjoyment.

8. Wild Mushroom + Corn Tacos with Spicy Slaw and Cashew Crema

No need to fight crowds for Taco Tuesday anymore. And you won’t have to whip out the TUMS afterward. Win-win.

9. Strawberry + Chia-sicles
