I started using huel way back in the early days, somewhere between 2012 and 2014 I think. Due to working long hours in a job that provides me free food (very difficult to choose a salad over lobster or a gourmet burger!) I decided this might be for me. So I did around a month of 100% Huel. I felt the benefits as well! In the ensuing years I’ve returned to huel, but never stuck to it. In part, because the winter months weren’t catered for.
Fast forward to the present day and Huel have graciously provided a full spectrum of options! As of last week I am a fully qualified bus driver. And as I’ll be mostly warming a seat and working from a location that I’ll have to drive to, I think it’s time to take my diet and well-being in hand. I’m going full huel again!
So, the plan - I’ll be in changing shifts (but no over night shifts) so breakfast lunch and dinner will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd meals respectively, regardless of time.
RTD for breakfast - love the banana RTD and am hoping the berry is just as good.
Lunch - I’ll just have a huel bar. I’ve ordered peanut butter and coffee caramel for some variety. These bars were ok, but a little dry. However, coupled with a nice hot coffee I’m hoping they’ll be fine! (No sugar - going to try and reduce this to a bare minimum, after all 38 is my age and not my waist size and I’d like it to stay that way!)
Dinner - Hot and Savoury. I tried this a couple of months ago and the sweet and sour seemed ok but a bit too gloopy. I’ve ordered Thai green curry (already tasted and loved), tomato and basil, korma and mac’n’cheese! Dear lord, I cannot put into words how much I hope I fall in love with the latter!
My order leaves me with 4 days without RTD (I’ve subscribed with a delivery pattern of 4 weeks, as I get paid weekly) but 2 extra bars. So either this will result in 2 or 4 ‘cheat days’ where I may mix up the order and grab a takeaway as a treat. (It may be less than 99.99%, I’m a driver, not a MENSA candidate !)
Hopefully I get a route with double deckers so I have a stair case to run up and down between journeys for some exercise, but failing that, my new waterways licence and kayak will hopefully help. (Not much on exercise, until now my jobs have always provided me with more than enough!)
I’ll keep this updated as and when, in case anyone is interested. Let the healthy begin…
