I’m terrible for skipping meals out, as long as I’ve had cereal in the morning I’m content.
This is not healthy, and with the long shifts I work means I’m often going long periods without any food or just surviving on rubbish.
I came across Huel (which I will review shortly) and Solo shortly after.
Both options are meal replacements giving you the vitamins, fibre etc that you need in a quick and easy alternative.
Both are vegan and gluten free, although Huel also comes in a non gluten free version (so be aware)
Solo do single meal packs for £2, for you to try. This is a good way to see if you’ll like the flavour. I ordered a couple of flavours and the first one I tried was the chocolate salted caramel.
Now having played around with Huel I’ve learnt that I cannot stand these drinks when made up with water. So I make them up with soya milk or a nut milk.
This one I had Tesco’s own brand soya milk to hand.
The powder itself appears finer than Huel with less ‘bits’ in it.
However when trying to mix it up in a shaker it did not blend well. There were huge lumps throughout the mix no matter how much I shook it up.
I tried drinking this as had not brought any food in with me, to work. However with the flavour and the fact that it just would not lose the large amount of lumps left me feeling slightly ill.
I will give the Solo vanilla mix a go at some point soon. But so far I am sticking with Huel.
