This morning I realized I forgot to mix up a batch last night, I was hungry, so I figured I’d try throwing one together and drinking with no “sitting” time. Then I also decided to use lukewarm water, as recommended in one of the brochures (when I let it sit overnight, I just use cold tap water; in my experience, soaking overnight makes warm water unnecessary).
So I drank the lukewarm just-made Soylent. It was awful. Normally I find Soylent satisfying and easy to drink (although not incredibly tasty), but this was a struggle to choke down. Not sure why this was so awful, I couldn’t identify any unpleasant flavor in it, but all the same I couldn’t stand it. So note to myself: Always make soylent the night before. When it’s an emergency and I’ll be eating it immediately, use cold water! Grit I can stand, but this I cannot.
