I’m at it again, and this time I want to create a cheap diy soylent using readily available ingredients. The multivitamin may be the hardest for some to source. I’m using Rob’s Newest Recommended RDA (which needs substantiation. I’m not sure if this is the right target to be aiming for.) It occurred to me during recent discussions on the forum that people haven’t seen how cheap complete nutrition can be, nor is there an easily accessible diy (the headliner depends on access to a Trader Joe’s.) This is designed to get you the best bang for your buck.
This recipe is nutritionally complete. There are some interesting considerations. The molybdenum, sulfur, and copper interact with eachother to limit the total effective uptake of each, and according to my napkin calculations, they each end up under 150% rda. Selenium intake is well under any danger levels.
I’m at the $31.50 USD/month pricepoint, and I have some ideas to lower it more - the recipe provides complete nutrition and 2000 calories a day with 31g of fiber.
My posts and updates were a stream of consciousness. I’ll clean it up and make the thread a bit more navigable
