how we get back to human

We’re a haven for all things human - not just a place to grab food but a destination, a trusted partner in the shared goal of reclaiming what it means to eat and live deliciously.

1
Unprocess

Unprocess

Before industry, food was minimally processed and nourishing. Demand ingredients with that same pre-industrial standard. Humans evolved to eat whole foods that exist in nature, not ingredients made in labs. If you don’t recognize an ingredient, there’s a good chance your body won’t either.

2
Count Ingredients, not Calories

Count Ingredients, not Calories

The quality of your calories is far more important than the quantity. Don’t count calories; make ingredients count. Make the ingredients list the first thing you check out when you encounter a new food. If you commit to eating foods with minimal, wholesome ingredients, we will commit to making them delicious for you.

3
Pull Plants, Push Animals

Pull Plants, Push Animals

Flip the conventional wisdom. Pull vegetables and fruits to the center of the plate; push animal protein to the edges. We don’t want to push animal protein off the plate altogether, but we’re making plants the main event again.

4
Minimize Grains, Always Whole

Minimize Grains, Always Whole

Grains (whole or refined) aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. Vegetables are carbs too, and they are almost always a better choice. Look for grain-free alternatives whenever you can. When you do eat grains, ensure that they are whole. We also think humans should minimize gluten whenever possible. At Hu, all food is gluten-free.

5
Embrace Fat

Embrace Fat

It’s not fat that is making us sick – it’s the wrong fat. Revel in the good fats and keep out the bad. We embrace healthy olive and coconut oils, nuts, avocados, and animal fats from animals that were fed their natural diets.

6
Get Back to Animal Too

Get Back to Animal Too

If you are going to eat animals, demand they ate what animals were meant to eat. Animals aren’t meant to eat industrial, GMO food pellets, hormones, and antibiotics. Cows and fish aren’t meant to eat grains. We source only grass-fed, pastured meats and dairy, organic poultry and eggs, and wild seafood.

7
Sweeten Wisely

Sweeten Wisely

We think sugar in any form isn’t great for you, but we also love sweets, so our approach is to be smart about how we use sweeteners at Hu. There are a thousand names for cane sugar, corn sugar, and artificial sweeteners. We think they’re all bad for you. Instead, we use unrefined organic coconut sugar, unfiltered honey, and maple syrup. You’ll never find any form of corn syrup, cane sugar, processed stevia products, or artificial sweeteners within our walls.

8
Eat Clean

Eat Clean

Ensure that your food is as free as possible from foreign, toxic chemicals and genetically modified ingredients. Be smart about what needs to be organic. Demand the organic seal or verification of organic practices on food items where you feel susceptible to ingesting an unhealthy amount of toxins. As a few examples, our lettuces, thin-skinned fruits, coffee, wines, beers, poultry, and eggs are 100% organic, and everything at Hu is non-GMO and always will be.
