So my work situation changed in such a way that my blender bottles and tupperware full of my Hacker School blend have become less convenient to keep with me, so I decided to try a solid food alternative that approaches the problem of convenience and price similarly.
I was thinking I remember an earlier thread on attempts to formulate a nutritionally complete diet on solid foods as cheaply as possible to really compare Soylent to its best competitors, but I haven’t been able to find that thread. Can anybody help me out with a link?
Okay, so I will follow this with some cost calculations, but I’ve been baking Tofu in such a way that it’s really easy to plop it in a ziplock and take it to work with some dried apples for the extra fiber and carbs. I’m wondering about the likelihood that this plus a multi-vitamin might be as good as soylent in terms of cost and convenience.
The tofu takes a bit more time to prepare, but I have come up with a way that whittles the task down to just cutting, pouring sauce on it and leaving it in the oven. More details to follow on that if anyone’s interested.
But the main question: Any thoughts on how likely this idea is to have a chance against soylent in terms of cost and nutrient value?
I know it lags behind in prep time, but not prohibitively, at least not for me and my cooking habits.
