Hi all, I have made my own copy of People-chow but am not able to source all the ingredients locally (no amazon ) .
Listed below are the original ingredients that I was not able to obtain alongside the locally available replacement that I was able to source. Also with it, I have discussed the difference in the locally sourced ingredients vs what is in the original recipe
Original : Masa Harina
My replacement : Bob’s Red Mill, Masa Harina, Golden Corn Flour
Notes: based on the label, I manually keyed in the nutritional value and both are nutritionally similar, my replacement is slightly higher in iron
Original: Now Foods 100% Whey Protein Isolate
My replacement: Now Foods 100% Whey Protein Isolate
Notes: only 5lbs was available hence will use that, but my concern is based on the nutritional requirements, I will need 100g of this in my soylent daily. That seems a bit much especially when compared to the original recipe which only used 55g (half!). I am worried this much protein powder going into my system may cause some harm? any suggestions here?
Original: GNC Mega Men® Sport - Vanilla Bean
My replacement: GNC Mega Men Sport (90 Caplets)
Notes: I only get mega men sport in caplets. No powder available. And 23 caplets just seems wrong for some reason. No idea how to proceed in this respect. Help please?
p.s. : there is also the final concern that the nutritional values manually keyed in by me in the recipe might be a mistake on my part especially the values like iron which only provide a %age on the label rather than value in grams.
Thanks everyone, can’t wait to get started once all these minor doubts are ironed out.
