My huel turned up a day early (a Sunday delivery) and inside the box was one cup shaker and 2 scoops.
I also ordered huel bars, and I received version 1.2.
I’m assuming my huel vanilla is version 2.
I measured out 5 scoops of cold water poured in inot my shaker and got a black marker pen and marked the level on the side, so I’ll never need to measure out 5 scoops again.
I dropped in a single, compacted into the scoop, huel and shook the bottle with my finger over the clip lid for the spout.
First impressions were mixed. It had a funny taste to it. After thinking about it while still drinking it, I realised that my was slightly gagging on the cold water bubbles form the shaking of it, and I could only drink half of it, the rest I had to throw away.
I have always enjoyed my food hot rather than cold, so I thought about hot water. I then thought that it might taste even better with hot milk, so I measured out 5 scoops of skimmed milk and tipped those into a microwavable jug and heated the milk up gor about 2 minutes, just until it bubbles.
I mixed the huel and milk together and it was soo much nicer than cold with water. I fifnished my huel very quickly compared to how long it took me to drink it cold with water.
I also tried one of the huel bars, chocolate flavour. My only comment is I bought a box of 16, and after tasting one, I wish I could send back the other 15 for a full refund. They are awful
Bearing in mind that I am a full carnovore and I eat pretty much anything that used to walk, fly, swim or crawl this earth, going from that to this is a real challenge for me, but i can stomach the huel with hot milk no problem.
My next challenge will be to start replacing a meal with huel, then 2 meals, then by day 7, all 3 meals.
I plan to use nothing but huel for 14 days after that, consuming my basal calorie rate minus 1,000 to lose 2lbs per week, but to also only consume huel for 14 days to give my body a complete detox to try and reset the bacteria in my digestive system to try and resolve some minor bowel problems, as my \gp came up with nothing.
It can’t hurt to do it anyway, even if it doesn’t resolve some of my issues, it will still be a good detox for my body.
