OK I can’t really explain this one.
Last night I decided to take a stab at Soylent bars again. Here is the basic recipe:
2 Tbls maple syrup
2 Tbls canola oil (or oil blend)
6 Tbls liquid Soylent (or as needed for consistency)
1 cup dry Soylent poured into silicone molds, Microwaved on high 5 mins. Made 8 bars.
Frankly they cooked unevenly, some are quite hard and some are nicely soft (though they are fairly tasty). I need to try again with a regular oven. But here’s the weird part…
It is now 7:42 PM and I have not had one drop of Soylent since some time last night before I went to bed. I was fairly hungry this morning so I started off with a Soylent bar and some water (maybe 6 to 8 ounces) around 8am or so. Then I had another and some water in the early afternoon. Again hunger vanished. Then I noticed about 90 minutes ago that I was quite hungry again, so I had 2 bars and some water. Once again, hunger has vanished. Though at the moment I’m noticing that I’m feeling my usual evening munchies.
So all day, I’ve had maybe 3/4 of a cup of Soylent, and a little maple syrup. WTF!!! How in the world does this make any sense? I should be absolutely ravenous… but I’m not. No way I could have made it all day like this on 3/4 of a cup of liquid Soylent. So what could possibly account for this? Is there some reason that solid form Soylent would be far more satiating than liquid??
Extremely puzzled at this…
