Huel has provided me with two packages of their vanilla Huel for free to use and review. Opinions of the product are my own.
I had been seeing ads on Facebook for this stuff called Huel. I normally don’t click on facebook ads but this one spoke to me. As you know I work weekend overnights and because of that I have my weeks free. LAst year I was taking care of Andrew every day and so we had a set time for lunch and we made lunches together and had lunch. Now, everyone is at school and I’m home or out. When I am out I usually eat out and had been doing a heck of a lot of it. I am not interested in cold cuts and sandwiches at home I was getting burgers and pizza and all those things that sound and taste good to me. However, all this is not good for me.
Up until now, the only thing that has been keeping me from being a complete wreck health-wise is that I work out consistently at Koko Fit Club. Even though I work out a lot I am still having trouble and that has to do with my eating habits. I’ve found that given the choice I am going to pick that thing that tastes great but isn’t so good for me. Compound that with eating that way day in and day out and I’ve got trouble.
However, with Huel I have a complete nutritional meal that I can make quickly and easily. It also helps that I like the taste. And even though I was a big water drinker anyway, Huel has made me into and even bigger one. I always refill my Huel shaker with water after I have had my morning and afternoon Huel. I am not a nutritionist, I can’t tell you if this is the best thing for you, I can point you toward more Huel information and you can make your own decision. I do know, that for me, Huel has helped. I am not going out every day for my meals. I don’t get hungry and crave lots of other things with Huel. I still have a regular dinner each night, and you know me, I eat out on many occasions. But I’ve cut way down on that and it is because I am having Huel. I’ve even taking it to work to prevent my second dinner on weekend overnights.
There is much more that you can do with Huel than just drink it. People are using it in recipes to make things like brownies, cookies and more. Here are some Huel Recipes. I’ll have to make some to see how I like them.
So far I’ve just had Huel and water, that’s it. I haven’t tried adding any fruit or anything else to Huel because I’ve been focusing on the 500 calories per serving and trying to lower my caloric intake. I also like the taste of Huel. It is described as having an Oaty flavor. For me, it almost tastes like graham crackers. There are other flavors and Huel that is unsweetened as well as gluten free Huel. It is also 100% vegan if that is a concern for you. I just know that I like it and after my initial trial I am making a purchase for my own subscription.
