I’ve written a lot about Huel before. These days, I mostly eat Huel with overnight oats: a Huel bircher or protein-packed porridge, if you will. Why? Texture. Mixing Huel with porridge oats gives it a different texture and soaking overnight makes it creamier. Cost. Bulking Huel out with oats makes it much cheaper and makes that Huel bag last a lot longer. Protein. I use Black Edition for the extra dose of protein; you’ll get about 20g protein from the single scoop alone.
I’ve been using Huel for over 2 years now. If you’re new to Huel, it’s a nutritionally complete meal replacement. I recently wrote about all the reasons you might want to give it a go. Whether your goal is weight loss, training for an event, or just making healthy eating more convenient, there are plenty of reasons to consider Huel. But doesn’t it get boring? Not in my experience. There are lots of different flavours and flavour sachets to keep things interesting.
I first tried Huel about 2 years ago. I’d seen that more and more people were experimenting with meal replacements. The simplicity of an all-in-one shake and the idea of engineering a nutritionally complete food appealed to me. If you want £10 off your first order, keep reading! But most of the initial offerings seemed pretty unhealthy. After some research, I came across the Huel website and was impressed. Short for “human fuel”, the Huel brand looked professional and clean and the core ingredients seemed much more nutritious: oats, pea protein, flaxseed, brown rice protein, coconut oil, and sunflower oil.
