Over the past few months, I’ve really come round to the idea of trying to live a low-waste, mostly Huel-only lifestyle. I still think when RTD comes out it will be useful for the occasions now where I can’t mix up regular Huel, but overall I really do want to try to live as low-waste as possible.
The problem is that I am a cyclist, one that in particular likes to cycle long distance and so needs some kind of energy to keep them going on long rides (and needs energy after because I’m not aiming for an unintended calorie deficit).
I’ve been recently trying to make up the calories with just energy drinks and gels (lucozade, I mean, not monster or anything), but I’m aware this is generating a fair bit of waste. I haven’t found a good way to bring the Huel mixed up with me (just gunks up bottles) and the bars are too dehydrating (and not especially low-waste), so what are other low-waste, low-volume, high calorie options for me? I have a top tube bag, so it can be solid.
Ideally, I’d just have this whenever I need more calories. I really just want to consume enough Huel to live on, and add in something else fixed to make up any extra calories burned (rather than buying snacks or something). It’s too easy to get into the reward mindset for this sort of thing, and to think it would be too expensive to make up the excess with Huel, so being relatively cheap would also be ideal.
