I'm a complete genius


#1

I think I have this soylent thing figured out

yup, soylent instead of milk. you can thank me later.


#2

Wow. That might just be genius. Not for us “true” Soylenteers, of course. We like drinking our meals.

Now maybe you could find a cereal with the missing sodium? :slight_smile:


#3

Have you tried it with cookie crisp or some other cereal that negates Soylent’s nutritional contributions? They taste the best.


#4

Wow. I’ll keep that in mind if I run out of milk for cereal, not that I eat cereal often at all (or use milk in general…). :slight_smile:


#5

I totally had that thought but wasn’t brave enough to try it. How does it compare to milk? Cereal has always been a staple of my diet so I’m leery to do anything “weird” to it… but this is kinda tempting!


#6

it’s pretty weird and gross haha, but i had to try it


#7

@malove2play, does this come close? [quote=“malove2play, post:9, topic:18671, full:true”]
If someone could make good soylent cereal, I could go 100% soylent in a heartbeat

#8

I think you could formulate a good DIY around Total.


#9

Soylent Flakes. I’m in.


#10

When I have more than a few Soylent meals in a row, I kind of want something other than cold liquid. I want something hot and sort of solid. If I could have “oatmeal” that would be perfect.

#11

gotta say, I tried this once, and I thought it was really awful


#12

I’ve had the same thought… others have talked about making a sort of Soylent porridge, but that’s not the same as oatmeal and sounds unappetizing to me. If I could use Soylent instead of water to make my maple & brown sugar oatmeal though, I would… just not sure it would do well being heated that much.


#13

Oh, I’m not talking about using the current Soylent as a base at all. I tried that with 100%Food, by the way, and wound up just throwing the pot and contents away because it was a gummy uncleanable mess. (I’m also a lousy cook which might have had something to do with it). I bet Soylent would be even worse.

I’m thinking more of an independent product way down the line. In fact, once the concept of an unsugared total meal takes hold I can see a variety of products developed in the way that people are creating crackers and breads, etc.

I would love some kind of “protein bar” that was on par with Soylent (meaning 100% nutrition and reasonable price). I’m not sure if I would switch to that or stay with liquid diet. It would definitely be better on the road, etc.


#15

Uber Cookies ain’t bad.


#16

Yeah Soylent bakes fairly well for those who are up for it - though I still haven’t found a not-super-messy way to make cookies. I’d love a bar form, a flake cereal, or crackers that I could then spread Soylent peanut butter on. :slight_smile:


#17

I’ve never tried it with genuine Soylent, but my DIY Soylent (which is a little higher in oat flour) makes excellent spoon bread.

I use a cinnamon-flavored DIY, mixed with a hair less water to make it thick, in a big coffee mug. Microwave for a minute (more if it’s cold from the fridge) and then stir with a spoon. Microwave for another minute, and it’s turning solid, with parts going bread-like. It’s delicious like that; warm, hearty, and satisfying. (If you over-nuke it, it turns too hard and bready to enjoy spoon-eating.)

I’d love for someone to try this with proper Soylent, to see if it works well.

Just tried the “spoon bread” with the latest Soylent, 1.3 - and it was a flop.

Might as well call it “thick boiling Soylent in a super hot mug”.

How it happened:
Mine was refrigerated but I forgot to cook it for longer than a minute for the first zap.

Stirred, put it back in for a minute… thick hot Soylent. Another 30sec… thicker hotter Soylent. Repeated this about 3 times, each time the mug is hotter and the Soylent is “boiling” but nothing resembling bread each time I stirred - just smooth Soylent gravy.

Gave up and left it on the counter for an hour or two, came back and there was a thicker layer on top but still warm goo underneath.

Tasted like concentrated Soylent, which wasn’t so great - and the fact that it was 4 x thicker than usual, and still warm… I couldn’t eat it so down the sink it went. :disappointed:

Boooooooo!

Thanks for trying, though.
