so after trying soylent (DIY) http://diy.soylent.me/recipes/people-chow-uk
for the first time yesterday it went along the lines of this:
i prepared the mixture blended well together and put in to 3 sports shaker bottles and placed in the fridge. i went to bed and several hours later came down to begin my new soylent life.
i decided to drink the half bottle fro breakfast. it was quite thick and i almost threw up when i tried a bit. i thinned it out with water and tried again. i almost threw up on the aftertaste of the masa. i quickly looked around the kitchen for something to take the taste away. 2 table spoons of nescafe mixed in later i tried again. i could taste the coffee very well but the after taste was disgusting. i took the bottle as i walked to work and managed to drink it without throwing up.
as i began work my hunger abated for a while and began to come back by my reckoning i consumed just under 200 calories so it was to be expected. i was dreading when break came. i bought some Tabasco and orange flavoring off the shop floor to try to help with the tast. it had no effect. after forcing my self to drink some i realized i would not have the time to force my self toi drink it. so i went to get a sandwich and decided to try to get something that wont make me rech after every mouth full.
so to this end i have been messing arround and have come up with this so far
im going for a nutty taste hence the milk and peanut butter. i hope to make a sort of peanut shake.
my main sauce of everything here is oat flour, which i hope doesn’t taste nearly as bad as masa. i have heard that it may have a slight nutty flavor and is naturally sweet. anyone had experience with it?
now thre are some white gaps on my spread sheet, the slightly lower carbs is on purpose
im almost sure that 1 litre of milk has enough calcium in it but i cant find any nutritional info about the calcium content of it. a little short on potassium but i want to avoid putting in more oat-flour and its almost there. and milks meant to have potassium in it anyway but again cant find the correct nutritional info just going off a general nutrition facts that google has. but again im not sure if thats accurate.
so comments and sugestions would be cool
