UPDATE #2: For the past 5 days I've been consuming this soylent recipe (still don't have the potassium or choline) almost exclusively and I feel great. I just had a bowl of home made chilli (I couldn't resist) and I'm full after half of what I would normally eat. Just confirming the reports of stomach size shrinking after being on soylent. About the taste. I honestly think it tastes alright for the 2 minutes I spend a day drinking it. I also only consume 2 servings a day, not 3. I stay full after the first one for about 4 hours then after the second I don't feel hungry until the next day (it's worth noting I'm not working at the moment so it's probably due to lack of stuff to do during the day)
UPDATE #1: Tried it for the first time today without Multi Vitamins, D/K2 liquid, Potassium Citrate or Choline Bitartrate (still waiting on them but I figured I'd try it with the essentials).
I used approximately 1/3 of the mixture around 5:00pm after waking up at 12:00pm and not eatting all day. Mixed with water first then added the oil. Shake vigorously for 15-30 seconds, tap the bottom if there is any soylent that sticks to the bottom while shaking.
The taste wasn't bad, just tasted like fiber and oats.
The texture wasn't bad either, no big chunks, again, just felt like drinking fibre.
I used a 1.1 Litre container as you will see in the pictures. I felt very full getting down to the last 100ml.
I'm trying to make a decent recipe for Canadian's (I'm in southern Ontario) from QuidNYC's recipes because his seem to be the most balanced and cheapest. This is still a work in progress so I'll let you know the preparation that goes into the daily/weekly meals when they arrive. The oat flour has a 12 day/unit because I only purchased 5.?lbs/2.3kg so when you go to purchase it (and when I go back to bulkbarn) I would recommend getting more since it wont go bad for a while and then you don't have to leave the house as often ^_^ So far this is what I have come up with. I want to keep the price below $4/day with the exception of shipping as I'm sure that will end up driving the price up :(. The shipping and tax for me in Sarnia, Ontario bring the daily cost up to $4.68 from $4.20 in the recipe. I will be working to cut this back and hopefully get this bellow $4.
Any and all help on this would be appreciated!
