I just finished up a week long chili cook off in Houston, Texas. It got me thinking there may be interest here to have a competition for the best tasting DIY soylent. Each contestant submits 2,000 kcal with their diy recipe. The rules could be simple:
- must be 100% complete and ‘in the green’ (not exceeding daily limits) perhaps based on Based on U.S. government DRI, male 19-50, 2000 calories ( http://diy.soylent.me/nutrient-profiles/51e4e6ca7789bc0200000007 )
- maybe a max score of 10 points under each category (taste, texture, cost, separation/settling time, recipe nutrition accuracy, etc.)
The top 5 finalists will have their recipe faithfully recreated using the provided recipe to determine the reproducibility and ultimately given a 1st, 2nd, 3rd place.
If there is interest, I spoke with my neighbor friends all 20ish of them would be interested in being a tasting judge. They are non-soylent drinkers and I believe could give an unbiased opinion. For them its a good reason for a dinner party. I’ll take pics and post them on the web somewhere.
Dry powders could have the oils mixed in and be shipped cheaply; I can provide the water, 2% milk, whole milk, etc.
