WHAT IS HOL FOOD?
Hol Food is an all-in-one nutritional shake that contains all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals required by your body. Giving you 100% of your daily nutritional requirements, it can be used to replace any or all of your meals throughout the day.
HOW SHOULD I USE HOL FOOD?
Hol Food can be used to replace all of your meals, but many people also use it as a healthy and convenient alternative to just one or a couple meals per day.
HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN ONE "MEAL" OF HOL FOOD?
One meal of Hol Food contains 400 calories. One scoop of Hol Food contains 200 calories, thus two scoops will provide one meal.
HOW DO I PREPARE HOL FOOD?
Measure 2 scoops of Hol Food with 1.5 cups (350 ml) of ice-cold water or milk. In a blender or shaker cup mix contents together until desired texture is achieved, then enjoy!
Try creating new variations by mixing Hol Food with milk, peanut butter, bananas, kale, pomegranate, avocado, goji berries... or anything else you can think of. The possibilities are limitless!

WHAT'S WITH THE NAME?
The "Hol" in Hol Food is short for Holism, a philosophical theory that boils down to the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, the parts of a whole interact in a synergistic way to create a positive result that is greater than if each part had interacted separately.
So what does this have to do with Hol Food? When our co-founder James was working on the thesis project that would later become the basis for Hol Food, he discovered a body of research demonstrating that concomitant broad spectrum macro- and micro-nutrient ingestion had improved efficacy over supplementation with the same macro- and micro-nutrients separately. Thus, not only did maintenance of the physiological state of the body within advantageous homeostatic boundaries require a sufficient source of nutrients, but the supplementation of said nutrients together allowed them to operate synergistically upon the body's cellular machinery and in turn, improved the overall effects of the nutritional input...
...which is just a fancy way of saying that nutrients work a lot better when you take them all together, as Hol Food allows you to do, hence the name.
