About two weeks ago I was able to try one day of Soylent v1.0, and I have to admit, I wasn’t a fan. I took the vegan bag and poured it in to warm water, then let that chill for the night. In the morning it tasted terrible and was ridiculously gritty, so I put some olive oil in it. Hours later the consistency improved but the taste was still pretty terrible. Further, I was getting gas even with little sips. I couldn’t see how I could make it another day, let alone replace my regular meals with Soylent.
My first week of grey market Soylent v1.0 has arrived and today is day 1 (my order for Soylent hasn’t arrived yet). Soylent 1.0 shaken (with blend balls) with coldish to room temperature tap and with oil mixed in immediately and stored overnight seems to store much better, has a smoother consistency, tastes better, and (so far) produces much less gas (none so far, and I’m not resorting to sipping as I had before). I know that everyone’s been saying this from the beginning but I guess my attempt to improve mix-ability really messed things up.
The More You Know
This week I’ll be experimenting with tap water, drinking water, distilled water, and Brita water to see if there are any benefits of more purified water on taste and grit. So many waters to choose from and such a subjective test.
