    Different recipes. There are various different sources to get your nutrition from, all the different food replacements use different ingredients to achieve the same thing.

    I'm going to go 100% Huel next week just for curiosities sake. Anyone else tried it did you crave solid food?

    Not tried 100% but on days that I'm busy, I usually have about 2000cal of Huel during the day, and really craving solid food when I get back in the evening.

    Why would you cut solid food out of your diet if you are a healthy individual?

    Food is one of life’s pleasures. Everyone enjoys eating nice food. Don’t they?

    Not really at the moment it's just a chore where I tend to eat what ever is easiest. Lots of takeaway, ready meals that sort of thing.

    Each to their own, but I couldn’t imagine never eating and living completely on fluids.

    I make it much thicker sometimes so it's like porridge. Eat it with a spoon.

    Committed now, signed up to subscription for two bags of Kaffee flavour a month.

    Definitely worthwhile, 2 scoops for breakfast, 2 for afternoon snack, get all the protein I need and proper food before and after climbing sessions.

    I’m still on Huel for breakfast and I actually like it :o

    I’ve sertled on 1 scoop of vanilla, 2 scoops of unsweetened and some frozen fruit - either blueberries or strawberries and made in a blender and left in the fridge overnight.

    I'd remove the mention of referral and link, it's against the rules.

    Meh! I used Ross's referral above, it shouldn't matter. Perhaps it best if we ask for someone to send us a referral? Help one another. The hard and fast no referral rule is a bummer.

    Anyway, been on the huel over a week now and going well. I don't use it every single day, just usually when at work and unable to prep food. Coffee is OK, except less coffee flavoured than I expected. Berry is nice. I top them up with some seed sprinkles I got from aldi.

    It seems a newer version of the huel bars is out. v2 was a big improvement over v1(which i found to be tasteless and dry) and now the v3 version is again a big improvement especially in texture and taste over v2.

    I'm not sure how the different versions compare nutritionally and what changes they have made but i would now recommend them if you find the powder is not convenient enough. It goes without saying this is still a meal replacement bar so don't expect to be on par with a fridge cooled Mars bar(yes, the temperature is important :D) in the taste department but I did enjoy eating one just now.

    I wasn't even aware there was an updated recipie out as i only started a subscription around a month ago for the v2 variant. I had one yesterday and was surprised how nice it tasted but didn't think anything of it. I took a bite out of one today and it tasted even better than yesterday so i knew it wasn't a coincidence, that was when i checked the back of the packet.
