I was wondering if you could help me out. I have been interested in and following soylent for quite awhile.
Given the delays in shipping that have occurred so far it looks like international shipping is going to be awhile off. As such I have decided to have a look at DIY soylent. I am trying to find a good recipe to start with, unfortunately things are somewhat confusing. I was hoping that someone on here would have some recommendations for a recipe based on what I am trying to get out of soylent.
Firstly I am not intending to completely replace food, however I could quite easily see myself using nothing but soylent 3 to 4 days a week and using it for 2/3 of my meals the rest of the week.
I want it to be in the 2000-2400 calorie range. I would however like a recipe I can increase or decrease the calorie amount until I am happy.
I’m in the UK, in case it matters for some ingredients.
Price isn’t my main concern, while I don’t want it to have a ridiculous cost I would prefer something more expensive if it gives me a closer match to my other requirements. That been said until I get started and know that a recipe is working for me I would prefer not to be dealing with huge quantities of ingredients.
I’m not afraid of measuring several ingredients if it is better than one single ingredient. Although I do need a set of high accuracy scales if anyone has a recommendation.
I would prefer a smoother consistency, I have never liked gritty food.
I would prefer something with a neutral taste so I can add flavourings if I want.
I have had a look at several recipes, the most common one seems to be people chow, however I am very put off by the ratios of protein, carbs and fat(a not uncommon complaint) and the corn taste doesn’t appeal to me.
Any advice would be appreciated.
