We all know nutritious food is vital for a healthy, happy life, but we are all living increasingly busy lives. This means we often struggle to make healthy food choices, or to strike a balance between nutrition and convenience.
In this series, we look at popular breakfast choices and how they compare with Huel Ready-to-drink.
Huel Ready-to-drink contains under a quarter the amount of sugar compared to this breakfast option.
Oatmeal is a great source of fiber and so is Huel Ready-to-drink (even more so per serving). Additionally, when oatmeal is made with water it is not a complete protein source, unlike Huel Ready-to-drink. A complete protein source is one which provides adequate amounts of all the amino acids our body can’t produce. Huel Ready-to-drink is also high in vitamin D and K, which together, amongst their varied roles, contribute to the maintenance of normal bones.

In Huel Ready-to-drink, the majority are polyunsaturated fats with a good ratio of essential omega 3:omega 6 fatty acids (1:2).

Whole fruit is great and it’s important to eat a good amount each day to make sure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need. However, when combined with high sugar options such as sweetened yogurt and granola it can result in a breakfast that puts you on your way to overconsuming the recommended daily amounts of sugar.
Huel Ready-to-drink contains nearly nine times less sugar per serving and 6g more protein too.
Huel Ready-to-drink also provides twice as much fiber compared to this breakfast option, partly because blended fruits can contain little fiber due to the way they have been processed.
