Just purchased my first batch of ingredients for my Soylent recipe to be delivered to Melbourne, Australia.
The challenge of finding sources that ship here required a lot of playing around and working with alternatives so in the process of creating my recipe (inspired by a lot of recipes in this forum) I’ve built a small app to help me plan and price different sources of nutrients.
I also practice Leangains, so I wanted a tool to let me quickly try different macros (macronutrient breakdown) for the recipe.
The app is very ‘alpha’ (you can’t really save a recipe after modifying it) but you can check out and play with the recipe with ingredient sources.
It is essentially like a spreadsheet, except that there is unit validation (can’t accidentally mess up converting from fluid oz to oz, or millilitres to grams, etc.) and you can quickly add rows from pre-existing ingredients. Also you can pick from multiple sources for each ingredient.
It will also indicate if your nutrient breakdown is far off the recommendation.
Check it out at http://soylent-mk.herokuapp.com/
(Expect it to load slowly, but after that it is pretty quick)
I’d love some feedback about the recipe itself and about the usability of the app.
