Great meal replacement, especially for those days where making lunch feels too time consuming and you want to mix things up. As powdered meals go, Queal is definitely up there for best tasting meal. A wide range of flavours to choose from, meaning you will not get bored of the same flavour over and over.
Time is very precious, and as a student you do not always get much of it. Therefore, Queal will help you save time, and the end result is no different from what you would have spent time on a physical meal. Getting a balanced dose of nutrients is the key to a healthy and long lasting life. Mind you that there will be some minor side effects with taking Queal, you might encounter a gassy stomach, this is nothing to worry about. Your body will react the same to any foods that have a relatively high fibre content. As Queal is made of 30% oat flour (Standard option), the increase of oats in your diet, is what cause the gas in your stomach.
During the time my friends and I were trying Queal, we only managed to replace our first 2 meals. That is breakfast and/or lunch, dinner was still something we kept and enjoyed, as we did not feel like it was necessary for us to replace all meals.
Portion sizes and “The Perfect” recipe:
Depending on which diet you have (Lite, Standard or Athlete) the perfect portion is minimum 4 (full scoops), after that it all depends of how thick you like the drink. Therefore, personally I like something that did not have the same texture as water, thus, I would add between 250-350ml of powder and fill water all the way up to 400-500ml. these measurements can be seen on the Queal shaker, which I will use for many more shakes to come.
Below is a list of my favourite flavours from the taster package, it was fairly hard to list them as I felt that none of them deserved to be last, however, there was something with the taste of Funky Forest Fruit that got a little bit boring. The top three were the ones I enjoyed the most, and would most definitely purchase again.
List in order of my favourite Queal flavours:
1. Cool Chocolate
2. Crazy Chocolate Peanut
3. Super Strawberry
4. Awesome Apple Pie
5. Smooth Vanilla
6. Banana Mania
7. Funky Forest Fruit
I would like to give a big thank you to Queal and their team for the service they have provided me with.
