A NY Times writer, Julie Kraut, suggested for Thanksgiving:
“Of course, there will be conversations at the Thanksgiving table. And that’s completely O.K. — as long as you stay out of them. Don’t speak and try not to listen. Earplugs are a good idea or, if you can, simply avoid all noise. Light is also hugely distracting. Think about a blindfold. The easiest way to dodge all the commotion is to take your plate away from the crowd entirely.”
This article was not about Soylent, but having read many articles about Soylent, I was shocked.
Remember, the bad thing about Soylent according to many writers is that it disrupts the sacred community aspect of eating. Where is that aspect if you are ear-plugged and blindfolded?
You should be able to find this article on the NY Times site … if you want to. It advocates “intuitive eating” aka “listen to your body”, a worthy idea. I consume Soylent intuitively.
