Anyway, I don’t drink Huel for the flavour. If I wanted to eat something that tastes like real food I’d cook a meal.
I chuck it down my throat as quickly as possible to get nutritious fuel into my body, much like you’d fill up your car at the petrol station. Then I’m on my way.
I think there’s a certain psychological element to eating food that requires it to be satisfying in some way - taste, texture, smell, visually - because we’ve spent all our lives equating food with a satisfactory meal.
Can anyone relate to that? I certainly can.
As much as I love ‘real’ food and cooking, and all the feelings of joy and satisfaction that go with it, now I feel like i’ve separated the act of ‘putting fuel into my body’ from ‘eating for enjoyment’.
That makes it very easy to down my ‘tasteless’ Huel in the mornings, and when the ‘proper’ meal comes around again - it’s all the more satisfying.
HUEL IS NOT JUST NUTRITIONALLY COMPLETE FOOD.
HUEL IS A STATE OF MIND.
