Hey everyone, I only just found out about Soylent in the last couple of days, but I have been wishing for a way to be healthy and not spend as much on food as I do currently for a while now. I also have an aversion to most food related chores (shopping for food, preparing food, cooking food, cleaning up after food) eating I’m fine with, it’s just all the other nonsense I can’t stand…! I’m from Australia and will therefore have to wait a while until I can purchase legit Soylent so I thought I’d give it a go!
Anyway, I’ve been working on an edited recipe to fit my nutrient needs (as they are slightly more than the 1500cal weight loss ones but significantly less than the 2000cal male recipes). I have got it looking pretty good (I think) and am ready to start ordering the ingredients! I have a couple of questions though, would someone look over it and see if it covers all the nutrients properly?
Everything is green in my nutrient overview… The one thing giving me a bit of unease is the Vitamin A level… It seems really high due to the multi vits used… But I’ve tried swapping another multi in and it left a bunch of other things out… Is Vit A a big problem?
Also, what do people suggest as far as prep, making, storing of food etc?! I don’t own a blender but will buy one if need be, also I’m assuming I’ll need a decent set of scales, and some measuring cups etc? Should the multi vits and calcium + magnesium pills be ground up and added to the mix or should I just take those in the morning separately? Should I mix up all the dry stuff first into pouches per day and then add the oil and milk in right when I add the water?
Sorry for the completely beginner-ish-ness of my befuddled post! But I really look forward to any help/suggestions you more experienced soylenters may have!
here is my nutrient profile and my recipe which is basically the same as the one it’s based on, save for the amounts of ingredients, plus I added almond milk to mine (to add in some calcium that way and remove one of the calcium + magnesium tablets - as too much magnesium isn’t great on my guts)
