@qgroff, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your thorough Schmoylent impression posts. Definitely looking forward to more!
Sounds like Schmoylent is closer to Soylent in sweetness than I'd thought from my taste tests, not really "toned down" after all. So... I think that's a good thing, actually. Cool.
Keep us posted on the gas and headaches - I'm cautiously optimistic that my own reports of less/no gas from Schmoylent (vs Soylent) will be a common pattern. I haven't experienced headaches on Schmoylent - I do have eyestrain issues myself, so definitely let us know how it goes when you have your glasses on...
I know what you mean about portion control - my completionist tendencies can be counter-productive when it comes to eating. My own DIY efforts have definitely been helpful in that regard.
Yes, the vanilla flavor is natural (if the ingredients of the vanilla-flavored rice protein I use is to be believed). I may revisit the sweetness comparison again - I don't mean for Schmoylent to be sweeter than Soylent, though it's fine to be the same or a little less sweet.
Schmoylent is definitely thicker than Soylent, I think because I am using a greater percentage of soluble fiber in the form of psyllium husk powder and xanthan gum than official soylent. I do prefer it this way, and I think the soluble fiber helps mitigate typical Soylent side effects.
Yes! Keep us posted.
Also, an update for any previous and potential customers of my People Chow recipes...
I've phased out the People Chow series in favor of an equivalent series called People Fuel, which is the same but with a hypoallergenic multivitamin powder instead of the milk-based GNC Mega Men Sport. If you want People Chow Plus, for example, try People Fuel Plus from now.
