Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll check out iherb.com
I’m still modifying my recipe every day, and I’ve been replacing two meals most days for a bit over a week.
Overall I haven’t noticed feeling any worse or any better than I did eating food.
I have however, had a few occasions where I felt tired, nauseous and anxious after a serving of Soylent. So I’m currently trying to figure out if I’m getting too much of something (it seems to be (might not be) worse since switching to whey from soy protein), or if I’m just getting too much of something at once (and need to spread it out over more servings). Hopefully it’s the latter, though having to eat more frequently is less convenient.
I’d really like to replace some of the maltodextrin with oat powder too, but I haven’t been able to find anywhere that sells it… (my Japanese googling skills are a little bit lacking). If anyone knows a place, please let me know!
Also wouldn’t mind replacing the olive oil with something else, it seems to have a pretty big negative impact on the taste. And at least with the brands I’ve tried, extra virgin tastes worse than regular, it has a much stronger flavour.
I had to go off Soylent completely for a couple days after I ordered orange flavoured Maltodextrin because Amazon was out of the non-flavoured. It tastes ok diluted heavily just in water, but DO NOT put that stuff in with protein powder and olive oil… haha. Just stick to the non-flavoured. It’s always in stock on the bulk sports website and it ships just as fast as Amazon anyway.
My recipe probably isn’t much use to anyone else because it takes in to account the specific things (and brands) that I have for breakfast (fruit granola, all bran, milk, banana). And I’m still testing and refining it (and there’s the feeling nauseous sometimes thing).
But here’s my current recipe if anyone is interested:
DO NOT BLINDLY FOLLOW. THIS RECIPE IS UNTESTED, I HAVE HAD SOME CASES OF NAUSEA, AND IT DOESN’T TASTE PARTICULARLY GOOD CURRENTLY. PLEASE DO (LOTS OF) YOUR OWN RESEARCH BEFORE MAKING DIY SOYLENT.

I’m thinking about working in some solid food snacks. All I really want is to be able to eat healthy and cheap when I don’t have time to think about shopping or cooking, and I like to chew on snacks more than drink liquid food. So I’ll be looking in to that in the future I think.
