Having read several posts about the cost of Soylent and various people’s opinion on said cost, I am curious. What do people spend on food each month?
I would like to break this down by muggleness:
- Consume only muggle food.
- Consume only Soylent, DIY or official.
- Consume mostly Soylent with an occasional muggle meal (e.g. social meal)
- Split meals, e.g. Soylent for breakfast and/or lunch and muggle food for dinner.
What do you spend on food per month?
Personally, I am mostly muggle food right now, but finding the right DIY recipe to go “mostly Soylent” which will be soon as I finally have the right recipe and ingredients in my house. I end up spending about $300/month on food not including nights I eat out. Based on the DIY recipe I have right now, this cost would be slightly lower if I were 100% Soylent.
When I was in in the USAF I had a $300/month BAS (food allowance, it has gone up since I was in) which blew through easily because I could, and I was working out six days a week. But I do not care about fitness or health, only money spent. Still, I find it intriguing that the U.S. government has obviously researched the cost to feed an adult for a month and pays for it.
Yet despite this amount, people complain that a lesser amount is too expensive. I want to understand this.
If you are from the U.S, please use dollars. Otherwise, convert to USD and give some indication of the relative cost of food so we can compare (please, no bananas).
