Australian Masa-Lent is a 2500 calories Soylent. I was a fan of PeopleChow 3.0.1 and ate it for a couple years, but I found I was unable to source many of the ingredients when I moved to Australia so I made a new recipe based loosely on that recipe.
My priorities for Australian Masa-Lent are: Digestibility. I tried Aussie Lent but it uses oats. Oats based recipes give me terrible gas, and I found that Masa Harina was my best choice.
Taste. It takes like a plain corn tortilla. I don't want to add sugar to my recipe, this tastes plain but not unpleasant. It's very much the same flavor as PeopleChow.
Cost. Using Masa drives up the cost somewhat, since it isn't a significant source of protein I'm forced to add more whey, which drives my cost to to almost $8 a day. A note about Masa, its very hard to find in Australia at a reasonable price. I've only found it in Bibina for about $9.50 for 2kg.
Simplicity. I want to use as few components as possible for ease of preparing.
The multi-vitamins are blended into a powder and measured out by weight, and my vitamin K-2 is in capsules that are opened and poured into the mix. The flaxseed I get as flax meal, and blend it into more of a flour so it's not so gritty.
10/10/17: Lowered flax meal to 20g from 50g after learning that 50g was the maximum safe daily dose, and that flax has high levels of phytoestrogens.
Added MSM/sulfur supplement.
9/10/17: Changed sunflower oil to Canola oil to try to get a better Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio. Some recent recommendations are to have a 1:1 or 1:4 ratio. My old recipe was more like 1:17 Added vitamin K-2 capsules Rebalanced everything to get roughly near 2500 calories
