I ordered Soylent (haven’t received it yet) early this year because I am fascinated by the concept of “perfect” nutrition. Since I don’t know when I’ll get my Soylent, I ordered 30 bottles of 100%Food (Chocolate) from @Spaceman to get my stomach prepped for this type of fuelling up.
Day 1 - Smelled great with all that chocolate in there, but definitely was difficult to get down given the taste/textures that were new to me. Interestingly enough though it was the first day in 2 months where I haven’t had to take antacids for wicked back heartburn. Not only that but I can certainly attest to the fact that I wasn’t hungry most of the day. I had half a ham sandwich at a much later lunch time than I normally have because I just felt so darn full.
Day 2 - I jumped right into experimenting. I wanted to start my day with a nice rich cup of coffee, so I thought I would try baking the 100%Food into a cookie of some kind I could munch on with my coffee as I start my day. I simply whipped 2 egg whites, folded the entire bottle of 100%Food (Chocolate) into the egg whites, dropped onto a cookie sheet and baked at 350 for 9 minutes. I ended up with 6 beautifully formed cookies. I can’t upload a picture as I’m a new user, but they looked great. Taste wise, nutty and very savoury of course given the lack of sugars…etc, but almost like a slightly chewy, nutty, biscotti. It made 6 cookies. As of right now I finished 4 of them with my coffee. I’ll try finishing the last two with a big glass of water, but I’m already filling up. I think this is definitely a really good backup plan for consuming my 100%Food.
Question: will cooking destroy any of the nutrients in the formula substantially? I’m not strict about adhering to just 100%Food in my experiment, so adding the egg whites seemed like a great compromise/idea to help bring some variety to the mix.
I’m very anxious to see if my 100%Food breakfast yet again keeps the horrible heartburn away. I’ll choke down anything to avoid that and stop using antacids.
