I’m a Soylent backer who, like most of you, got pretty peeved about the second shipment delay. I’ve been making shakes for breakfast using the Body By Vi mixture with added bananas, peanut butter, almond milk, and chocolate pudding mix. I have been looking into a lot of DIY recipes on makesoylent lately, and decided that it’s probably healthier for me to make and eat something that I have more knowledge about.
My first recipe is here: http://makesoylent.com/recipes/jasons-milkbased-recipe
I’m currently planning on eating it for 2 meals a day so I can still cook and eat dinner with my girlfriend. That means that I’ll be consuming 2/3 of the nutrients that the breakdown shows.
The nutrient shortcomings are pretty obvious thanks to the breakdown, and if anybody has ideas on how to up them without inflating the ingredients list even more (I’d rather shrink it if it’s possible), please let me know. Even if I eat it as-is, it’s probably considerably healthier than Body by Vi + fast food.
Sulfur is currently at 0, but I believe that it is due to a lack of data concerning the amino acid profile in the soy protein. Does anybody have the amino acid profile for Trader Joe’s Soy Protein? I’m not wedded to the ingredient; I’m only using it due to the recommendation in Hackerschool Soylent, so if someone suggests another protein mixture that has more data, I’ll try it out.
Considering flavor and texture, I’ve never had coconut flour and I have no idea if the ingredients will blend into something smooth as-is. I also don’t know if that’s enough soy lecithin to emulsify the oil into the milk. I currently grind up ice into my shakes and make them into a smoothie, so that might help with the consistency for my breakfast shake.
