Is there anyone who makes DIY Soylent in the NYC area? I would like to try some DIY before investing hundreds into ingredients to fill the void before Retail Soylent ships out.
I’ve been very interested in Soylent for a while now…Finally bit the bullet and ordered some (knowing there would be a wait of about a month). Then there was the last delay (rice protein I think). Brushed that off and said Ill start getting myself ready…Been eating a lot less and drinking ensure/nutrement to get my body used to being full of liquid and primarily getting nutrition in that form.
Going well enough but I know that ensure is NOT the same thing as Soylent. Even if Soylent starts shipping out in a month, that is still a damn long time and I don’t want my excitement to fade before I get the stuff (have trouble committing to positive life choices especially to do with health). Once I dove into the forums and realized that this is not the first and possibly not the last delay with Soylent shipping out I decided to check the DIY community.
BLAH BLAH BLAH
general Newbie DIY i dont know what recipe to use stuff blah blah blah what if i poison myself blah blah blah soy or whey blah blah blah one comment said this recipe had toxic amounts of this and that blah blah blah :}
Basically i’ve read a lot that taste and texture can be an issue…that the retail Soylent product is delayed because they are waiting for the super fine mesh (something or other) which makes it smoother and easier to drink. So my concern is that…that the DIY version might be so far removed from the Final Retail Soyent that i will not be enjoyable to drinkable and I will have wasted Hundreds of Dollars to get all the DIY supplies for nothing…I would like a baseline to make sure that DIY is a route worth investing in (for me and my tastes and thoughts on the whole concept).
So that is all, I would like to know if there are any DIY Soylent folk in the NYC area who would be willing to mix me up a glass (or a days/weeks) worth of DIY Soylent to try to get an Idea of what I could expect from doing it myself. Of course I will gladly pay for the used ingredients, even for labor and tip…what ever you want…I just want to take another step forward towards a future possibly filled with Soylent (and a healthier me).
Thanks all for reading!!!
