Well… you’re eating it (the chicken). I am curious about this though as I didn’t think chicken was water soluble, presumably you blend it, cooked first?
Jokes aside, Huel is complete nutrition, so assuming you don’t have any specialist nutritional needs then you’re good to go. I know it can seem odd that you can genuinely get all you need to stay alive from a powdered shake, but it does seem to be true based on our current scientific understanding of nutrition.
There’s a couple of pages that might be worth having a look through to assuage any concerns, long reads but good info.
I recently tried some frozen avocado pulp. Bought a block of and chopped it into 12 cubes and put back in the freezer. Adding one frozen cube to the blender with your Huel shake gives it a really creamy taste and texture without altering the flavour much at all.
You can literally blend in anything you normally like eating fruit and veg wise. Bananas, strawberries, frozen cherries or acai pulp etc etc. bananas and raw honey are a particular favourite.
I have to admit that the whole point of Huel for me is that I don’t have to worry about adding anything else to my diet. I’m still alive and feeling very healthy so I think you can probably live on it. I’m really, really lazy when it comes to food so Huel is perfect for me.
I don’t want to eat conventional food because my body needs it to function - especially from a nutritional standpoint, where I have to make sure that what I eat contains all of my daily needs.
I want to eat conventional food when I can appreciate what I’m eating, be it a home-cooked meal, or going out (sans covid… ) to eat, and with-or-without friends.
“Nutrifoods” such as Huel is the solution I’ve been looking for: for those boring workday breakfasts and lunches - in my job it’s very rare to be able to have lunch with colleagues, my schedule covers both weekdays and weekends … and sometimes “lunch” is scheduled at 07:50 . Or when I’m just too lazy to cook after work.
Today, I have a free weekend, and after a Saturday morning sleep-in, I’m now having tea with sandwiches.
Ever since Brave New World I’ve wished that there was a pill that I could just take three times a day which would give me all the nutrition that I needed with no fuss. Huel is the equivalent of this.
I’ve lost a lot of weight over the last few years through conventional means but counting calories using food is time consuming and complicated and I was cutting food groups from my diet to avoid weight gain. I was eating no fat at all. This is obviously not ideal.
Huel gives me complete nutrition. It tastes great with water so no added calories. It’s also allowed me to change to a completely plant based diet which I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but it just seemed too damn complicated. Now, I have Huel for breakfast and lunch every day. I use the bars for snacks if I get hungry in between although I’ve just ordered some of the new protein powder to use instead of the bars. I use plant based ready meals for dinner and swapped my cows milk for oat milk. It’s been so easy.
I feel better than I did 20 years ago and fully intend to live forever.
