Sakara Life is a philosophy that was created to help clients reach and maintain a sense of balance. Finding health and balance in the hustle and bustle of New York City can be a challenge. Sakara Life takes the guess-work out of eating healthy by delivering delicious, nutritious and super-fresh meals straight to you door.


Sakara Life was founded by Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBoise who grew up together in Sedona, AZ. They founded Sakara to help reshape the culture’s relationship to food, diet and weight-loss into something that’s about balance and overall well-being. They believe that health and wellness are carefully interdependent on several factors: nutrition, relationships, career and love for the self. They promote balance in all areas of life. It starts with a decision to change… the rest is the easy part! Sakara was founded on the idea that true health means you’re making the right choices for your body because you want to, not because you have to. Once you get started on this path everything else falls into place.


MHS is staffed with a highly trained team of stylists and beauty artists each with an expertise in the latest color, cut and style trends, all of whom embody our philosophy. We also offer organic hair treatments and ancient natural techniques to revitalize and enhance the salon experience. Private nail care and professional make-up application are also available to aid in the holistic pampering of the body and soul.

Going Green – What makes Sakara Life Sustainable?

Sakara uses compostable and 100% tree-free packaging. We source from local, organic farms to reduce the carbon footprint of produce transportation and support local economies. Sakara uses all organic, in-season produce whenever possible to make sure our clients get the freshest, tastiest fruits and veggies available!

We were frustrated with the food options available today. We were even more frustrated with the half-truths that many in the food industry were peddling. It’s one thing to sell adulterated, highly-processed foods; it’s another thing entirely to hijack words like “healthy” and “natural” in order to sell them. These words used to mean something. It’s time to take them back.


Hu Kitchen’s overarching goal is to keep systemic inflammation of the human body at bay – we believe that this is the ticket to true longevity, health, happiness, beauty, disease-prevention, and personal prosperity. To achieve this goal via food, Hu Kitchen provides a one-stop-shop for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, juices, and market products, all of which must meet extremely-stringent guidelines before they are allowed in the door. We believe that the days of people having a combative relationship with food should be over – that food should invigorate, not be something to fear or something that is broken down into a series of numbers to fit some professional’s definition of the right “diet.” Food that brings about true wellness does not have be tasteless, bland, or mere line items on a spreadsheet – it can be decadent, delicious, and greater than the sum of its parts. Food should satisfy, not make you want more food 30 minutes later. At Hu, we strive to achieve this every day. As our founders say, the bar for “I feel fine” is set way too low – it is amazing how clean, low-inflammatory foods can make a person feel better than he/she ever imagined was possible.

Going Green – What Makes Hu Kitchen Sustainable?

From an operations and food perspective, Hu Kitchen takes several measures to ensure it is as sustainable as possible. Below are the measures Hu is currently taking:

  • Recycling – Hu recycles (for customer waste and for food preparation) all plastic, glass, and paper goods.
  • In-House Dining – A large portion of Hu’s guests stay at the venue to eat their food. We realized this quickly after we opened our doors, and we immediately switched over to plateware and silverware to significantly cut the amount of waste that was being generated.
  • Disposable Dining – For our guests who choose to dine outside of Hu, we provide bio-friendly and compostable disposable plateware and utensils.
  • Warewashing – All of Hu’s warewashing machines are state-of-the-art and designed to maximize water efficiency. Additionally, all of Hu’s cleaning materials are eco-friendly. However, in the instances where stronger chemicals are needed to remove stains and dirt that are otherwise not removable, Hu will use those stronger chemicals.
  • Organic Foods & Non-GMO – A very large portion of Hu’s food offerings (both plant and animal) are organic, and everything at Hu is Non-GMO. Organic farming and organic foods, in addition to Non-GMO crops, are far better for the environment than are their conventional and GMO counterparts.
