i’ve tried huel a couple of times before (by that i mean made two purchases of two bags) at different times over a few years, and for whatever reason it never clicked with me, either the hassle of having to take it to work, the temptations of too many other things in the city to go out and eat etc, grab a tesco meal deal, greggs… etc…
also tried hot and savoury, and while it was nice, the tomato and basil put me off it for life, enjoyed the thai curry one, but the T&B just ruined it for me.
The last few months i’ve been working from home, i do 4 days per week, but longer days, which means i finish work at 7.30pm, or 8pm on some days.
Lunhc isnt a problem, so a sandwich is easy to make, breakfast is hit and miss but that one is a little more under control.
But i find finishing so late at night, that cooking habits become unhealthy, or the temptations to order takeaways has been stronger, and eating something heavy, hot and greasy sometimes, so loate, is making me feel a lot worse, and the pounds have piled on.
My logic was maybe NOW is the right time to try and go for huel again, and make that late meal, an easy one… so i dug out the most recent bag i had in the cupboard (its slowly been relegated to the lowest cupboard, pushed to the back… and it was BBE Dec 2020… so even though folk say it should be fine, in my mind, 4 months out of date is waaaay too much, plus… the flavours didnt excite me (chocolate and vanilla should be a dream on paper, but no)
My last roll of the dice (or shake of the huel) to get the last meal of the day under control, and include some sort of controlled healthiness, has been to switch to Black Edition, something that i’ve never tried before, as i have always gone for the normal powder version, and two completely different flavours, Salted Caramel, and Banana
Whats the point of this post? Probably accountability.
heres hoping this latest attempt is the one that clicks
