For the first week the taste is...Bad. (Must be mixed in a blender, for serious!)
On the plus side it is green, Soylent Green!
After putting on nearly 2.5kg in 3 weeks on the previous recipe I needed to drop the calories a bit, sugar seemed the easiest place.
Can't go turning into a tubbytubster
ham soylent planet
After 3 weeks the horrendous gas stopped, which everyone without smelling range was glad of.
Other than that, feel better than I have in years. Taste grows on you, banana + banana flavdrops makes it taste of: DUN DUN DUN! BANANA!
After 100 days I've started not feeling overly great, shall get some more blood tests done. Going to try extra zinc while I wait for those to come back.
Guessing it was the Zinc as after a week on an extra 60mg a day I'm back to feeling good. Shall add 15mg/day to the mix and see how it goes.
Good news! Blood tests show I'm not dying. Nor do I have heavy metal poisoning.
Bad news! I think the banana flavdrops might be staining my teeth, switching to vanilla, taste appears better with those also.
Going to try lowering the sulphur back to Nabj's original, apparently the gas emissions aren't particularly endearing.
Lower sulphur (1.6Mg MSM) makes for a far nicer indoor environment.
Going to try adding Beta Alanine to try and grow some more mad wattz!
More than two years on and I'm still alive! Soylent is still my main diet (with the occasional cheat day on Sundays) I still feel better than ever and can't see me going back to regular food anytime soon. The only change I've made lately is switching tangerines for a glass of orange juice in the mornings.
Batches: (I make five day batches as that's all that will fit in my mixer)
Wholegrain Buckwheat Flour (cook for 2.5 mins in microwave) 500g
While that cooks measure:
Table Salt 21.5g
Ultra Fine Scottish Oats 535g
Brown Rice Protein 195g
Pea Protein 175g
Complete Greens 50g
Choline Bitartrate 5g
Aktivated Barley 75g
Xanthan Gum 2.5g
Calcium Citrate 20g
Potassium Gluconate 35g
Co-enzyme Q10 0.25g
Montmorency Tart Cherry Extract 10g
Chop & grind the pills:
DEVA Multivita 2 pills
Lifespan Sea Kelp 2.5 pills
Mix everything together in a food mixer, mashing up the clumps of flour with a fork as they rise to the top.
While the above mixes, weigh out the following (much easier than trying to measure it)
Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil 81g
Oil, Coconut 79g
The coconut oil will need microwaving or leaving on the radiator for a few hours (In the UK at least)
Store everything in air tight containers.
Drinks (I generally make 8 shakes every 2 days to save on washing up... and because I'm lazy)
(Measurements are per shake)
Hemp 8.75g (9g)
Powder 86.15g (87g)
In a blender: (Super important, hand shaking does not work and tastes BAD.) Add:
Half the water
Wizz for 30 seconds or however long it takes to weigh out the powder and peal a banana, Add the powder, banana and rest of the water and wizz for 30-60 seconds, then put in the fridge. (they taste much better cold). Doing it this way vastly improves the texture.
A shake will fit in a normal protein shaker bottle but you will have to put the lid on for the last little bit, I use SIS ones.
Four shakes a day then remembering to eat 3-4 tangerines and take the pills, you could probably put them in with the powder but it might affect the taste, K2 definitely would.
