Here is my natural soylent recipe.
- 0.5L orange juice (fresh pressed) (sieved)
- 0.5L goat milk
- 20 gram oats
- 10 gram potato starch
- 10 gram gelatin (great lake gelatin)
- 20 gram sugar (add to taste, if oranges are sweet, it is not necessary)
- 1/3 teaspoon salt (refined canning salt without additives)
- 1 raw egg yolk
- vitamin D/K2 oil (thorne), 1 drop
I add the raw egg yolk to get enough choline, lutein and zeaxanthine.You may think the raw egg yolk would make this recipe disgusting, but I’ve tried with and without the egg yolk, and the egg yolk makes it taste very creamy and delilcious actually. Note that in mayonaisse they also add raw egg yolks.
Three of those meals, give 350 gram carbs, 80 gram fat, 110 gram protein and in total 2500 cal.
I’ve used cronometer, to look at the nutrients. The RDA is more than 100% for everything except:
- fiber 29% (11 gram)
- omega-3 60% (1 gram)
- B3 74%
- zinc 82%
- B12 85%
Eating 1 or 2 oysters would solve everything except of fiber. Other seafood will work as well, or a piece of beef/lamb.
This recipe is Ray Peat inspired, who thinks a little bit different about nutrition. I like a ray peat inspired diet, as it makes me energetic and alive, and my blood levels shows that it cures my thyroid problems. Some of his general guidelines are:
- carbs should come from fruit
- fat should be saturated, monosaturated fats should be limited, and PUFA should be avoided
- at least 80 gram protein, and proteins should come from animals, and should be balanced with gelatin (which is an anti-inflammatory protein)
- calcium/phosphorus ratio should be 1:1
- sodium/potassium ratio should be something like 1:1 up to 1:3
- eat 1 carrot daily for its beneficial fibers, but more fibers are not necessary
- caffeine and cholesterol are considered essential nutrients
So I guess my recipe follows his guidelines pretty well, except for the carrot, which I will just eat normally. No need to mix it in my soylent.
