I am drinking my first portion of Huel as I type this. I quite like it. Vanilla oats! I actually quite like the solid bits too. Whether or not I will get sick of the taste of it if I have it too much, only time will tell. If anything, I would have preferred a slightly milder taste, but maybe I can just add more water.
I am really glad Huel has come along, as it is just what I have been looking for. I read about Soylent about a year ago. I was frustrated with Soylent not being available in the UK, so I spent a many months creating my own recipe using the DIY Soylent website. The problem was, I never quite got the recipe right. Eventually I got tired of trying to perfect the recipe and gave up.
But recently I searched on Google for “UK alternative to Soylent” and was absolutely delighted to find Huel.
My plan is to usually have it for breakfast and lunch, and have a normal meal in the evening. This will save time in the morning when getting ready for work, and will also make things easier at work as I can just sip on this when I feel like it. It will also be great for days out. No need to worry about what I’m going to eat. Also, if I do some traveling sometime and spend a few nights in a hotel, I could really save on money and hassle by mainly consuming Huel.
I’ve only drank about half of my lunch portion, and I feel satisfied already. I’ll put it in the fridge now and have the rest as a mid afternoon snack.
For version 1.0, this is definitely a superb start.
