my pee is bright yellow after a soylent lunch.
If you are unaware, soylent is this thing. Â It’s not mostly people, but I suppose you have a little people in it.
If you don’t know how to click a link, it’s a food replacement. Â You end up with a (without additives) fairly tasteless and bland shake which has all the calories and nutrients you need to survive. Â The actual product isn’t shipping yet, and it’s actually cheaper to make a variant yourself, so I did that. Â I’m not planning on a total food replacement, but I might do that for a week or two to see how it feels.
The plan is vaguely to get ~900 cal a day from my soylent concoction, and the rest from dinner and Mountain Dew. Â Dinners will mostly be meat and greens, so my soylent mixture is built with that in mind.
The first batch tasted pretty bad. I think it’s because I drank half of it for lunch-ish, then went to the store to get iodized salt and salt substitute (for potassium). Â I added that directly the half-remaining portion, as well as some powdered strawberry flavor and orange juice. Â I didn’t taste anything in between. Â I don’t recommend doing that; it tasted salty and acidic and weird.
I started making a batch for tomorrow. Â I realized I was a dummy for making a super salty shake last time. Â This time went much better…the oats I food processed I let food process for much longer, so it was much finer and resulted in a less oatmeally type shake and a more, less-oatmeally type shake. Â I put in a serving of juice concentrate, hoping it’d make it taste like that. Â It didn’t really, but the mix ended up being pretty palatable.
When time came to take it out of the blender, I made a mistake. Â You just have to lift up, and the blender/spinny thing attached to glass comes up, ready to pour into whatever you’d like. I somehow managed to untwist the glass from the base (probably through the twisting I was doing), which resulted in the glass coming up, the base and blades staying down, and the soylent pouring out the bottom all over the floor. Â Oops.
I salvaged enough, dumped the shitty tasting soylent I made early with too much salt and orange juice, Â and am finishing the newer batch tonight. Â After the dishwasher finishes cleaning up the mess, I’ll make the real batch for tomorrow.
My stomach feels a little weird already…strangely heavy for how little it seems I ate by volume today. Maybe that’s called being full.
