It should be noted that I created this recipe in Excel using fairly custom micronutrient targets, especially for electrolytes (see high levels of Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium). This is partly to accomodate a Ketogenic diet (requires additional electrolytes due to being diuretic) and partly to keep all the other things in balance with the Keto electrolyte increases.
At some point in the future I plan on shifting over toward Pea Protein. If it tastes okay it will totally replace Soy as I can get it cheaper, and it has a lower proportion of Methionine.
There are a couple of ingredients here I’m fairly proud of finding, while of course I don’t recommend or condone their use, you may find them interesting:
- Bulk peanuts. For protein alone, they are better value than powder isolates, then you get all the other stuff on top like fat, fibre, and B vitamins. This makes them amazing value, plus they’re delicious.
- Potassium Sulphate. Avoids the necessity of using MSM or relying on proteins for Sulphur intake, while conveniently giving extra Potassium. Sold for aquariums (but I use a lab grade, not a technical/aquarium grade).
- PegaVite. A multivitamin for horses. I discovered that you can get some health food-style products very cheap if you buy the horse version. The tub of PegaVite I paid £17.95 for will last me for 10 years at my current usage rate. My Flax Oil is also from an equine products site.
