Last year I started using Huel.
I prefer to eat my own food, I avoid ready meals (although, I have to make exceptions for pie and pizza!) but I find cooking to be incredibly boring. I just have better things to do with my life (like binge-watch Star Trek)!
Trying to get a balanced diet also isn’t that easy – or at least, I can’t be arsed because, well, life’s too short and I have better things to do (like drink beer).
So when I found out about Huel I was very interested. The name is a concatenation of “Human Fuel”. They call it “nutritionally complete human food” because it contains all of the nutrients your body needs.
Huel makes it ridiculously easy to get all the right nutrients your body needs, and it’s quick. Instead of spending hours chopping up vegetables and slaving over the stove I can just pour some water and powder into a bottle and drink. Simple, easy and quick.
Unlike some people I don’t live off Huel completely. I have Huel for breakfast, which sets me up great for the day because I’m really bad at breakfast. Then I eat a good lunch and optionally top up with extra Huel in the evening if I need it.
Cooking, when I do it, is more pleasurable because I don’t have to do it so often. I can get on with the things I want to do, safe in the knowledge that I’m getting the things I need in my diet.
