My DIY Recipe - "Mostly Green Soylent"


#1

Just because a couple people have asked, I thought I’d post my current mix of ingredients. Since I haven’t yet migrated from my uber complicated excel spreadsheet to the DIY platform on this site, I’m only posting an ingredient list, and not per item QTYs. But in short, this is a 2,000 calorie diet, targeting the endomorphic body type (and so a Protein:Fat:Carb ratio of 40:35:25).

It’s kind of a PITA to mix this, and it might not be an exaggeration to say that making 2 days worth takes me over an hour of measuring ingredients (I can certainly improve this by making larger batches though). It’s mostly good “green” or “natural-ish” ingredients, and every power I’m sourcing is unflavored, so it tastes like nothing. However, I’m not Vegan, gluten free, or anything funky like that, so the mix isn’t strictly organic/natural/any other new age label. More than anything, I just wanted a well-rounded recipe that I felt confident consuming for fuel 24/7 (which I haven’t quite been doing, but close).

The lists are pretty close to being ordered in traditional fashion, from largest component to smallest. The exception is the “Other” category.

Wow, I can see why that takes you so long to mix up!

Why so many ingredients? 12 different proteins, 9 different carbs, 2 different potassiums. Afraid your body will get board?
