Flavoursome descriptions of ‘old animal sperm’ and ‘briny contents swilling about like that water that they kill chickens in’ were enticing me more, and after a new skinny looking contractor started working next to me proclaiming that he ‘doesn’t eat’, that was just the last straw!
Last year I took to using another powder based named ‘Forever Living’ and got really used to having no evening meal over time.
This stuff tasted really nice mixed with milk but the ingredients and vitamins seemed to be less than what I should have been consuming
I duly ordered a starter pack of Huel directly from the manufacturer's website for £40.50 which gave me the following items.
This is a subscription only deal but you can cancel this anytime, you just need to remember to do so or more of the stuff will be delivered in a month and you will be charged again.
Aside from being able to boast openly about Huel with the incredible t-shirt, I should really let you know my thoughts on the product.
They advise to substitute one meal from your three a day to start and work up to not eating at all.
Side effects are bloating and excessive farting. I did feel the bloating and @bingbabe can attest to the latter problem of flatulence. You don’t get oat and organic flavour farts either, its still the usual bad egg variety.
A ‘meal’ costs £1.45 per which compared to 'real food' is cheap, plus its vegan. There’s none of the horrid meat for the veggie types.
I tried both the ‘Berry’ and ‘Vanilla’ both with water and milk and prefer to mix it with the latter. THREE scoops of Huel in the supplied container amounts to around 500 calories mixed with water thus 1500 a day which is very good going.
The milk which is semi-skimmed (in my case) will add more calories but it really depends if you can muster the stuff with water.
I found it hard to dissolve with THREE scoops in milk but fine with water. This leaves an unpleasant powdery taste in your mouth so I reduced the amount to 2.5 scoops with milk.
TIP: Add the milk or water before the power else half of it sticks to the base of the container.
It is quite palatable both with water and milk but as a food substitute, I can only manage to replace food at a maximum 2 out of the 3 meals.
While I prefer Vanilla to Berry I have also tasted the Chocolate Mint courtesy to yet another contractor I work with who is now on Huel.
That stuff was nice and I would likely order some if I was to order any more.
The Berry tastes like Strawberry Yoghurt and is a little to sweet for me while Vanilla is my favourite.
Today I will be having delicious Berry for lunch and luxurious Vanilla for my evening meal. Bet you are all so jealous aren’t you?
Just look at that Huel container filled with Berry juice. You know you want to ditch that juicy steak and throw yourself at the … er.
Why they supply bottles that make the liquid look like diarrhoea is quite beyond me?
TIP: When you have consumed your Huel, clean out the bottle right away or you will be cleaning out concrete later.
Despite my not so great review of Huel, it’s actually OK but I doubt I will be re-ordering any more; if I do it will be to try some different flavours possibly some time in the future.
Some trial packs would be nice Huel, instead of making the customer dish out for the full works; Food for thought?
