I’m a professional wildlife cameraman by trade.
I discovered Huel years ago whilst on a 3 month shoot in Egypt via another crew member who recommended it. Since then I’ve taken Huel on every shoot I’ve been on. It guarantees the ability to have a decent and well balanced meal, and all you need is access to drinkable water!
When it came out, I also gave hot and savoury a try and found that great too (especially the green Thai curry). That, I’ve generally reserved for use at home or for when I’ve been on shoots in locations where I knew in advance that I’d struggle to find vegan food.
However, 3 months ago I had a serious accident on a shoot. I fell off a mountain which, according to multiple doctors, should have killed me, but instead resulted in multiple breaks to my spine, my neck, my skull, the list goes on and on! After waking from my coma, getting repatriated to a hospital in the UK and eventually being moved home, I’m still not able to move or do anything for myself, and my amazing fiancee has been lumbered with the nurse roles (like injections), and meals etc, as well as her full time job currently working from home.
Our friends have been amazing during this time and some of them have even had freezer meals sent here which has been great! Not only have they been tasty, more importantly, it’s reduced the amount of cooking she’s had to do on top of everything else.
When they ran out, it was back to cooking, but realising I still had a couple of bags of Hot and Savoury in the cupboard, she’s been able to make that every few days. Not only is it as tasty as always, it’s proven to be a huge help to the both of us, in a serious situation! I look forward to sometime late next year when I can work again, ordering some of the fancy new mac n’ cheese!
So, with that in mind, that I’ve taken Huel everywhere, from the high Arctic, down to Antarctica, from rainforests to deserts, and now, even when trapped in my house in the UK unable to do anything, it’s still proving to be an invaluable product. I’d just like to say a massive thank you to Huel and their team for their base powder, the hot products and the bars!
