    Don't get me wrong; if I can fast or have some BP coffee on a lazy day, great.

    But if anything, people should be cooking more, not less. And learning to enjoy it. Not inhale it like an inconvenient waste of their time.
    I couldn't agree more! There already are countless types of food that can be mindlessly sucked down. If anything I'd like to see more people learning to not only cook but to eat foods that require a fork and a knife, more time spent at the dinner table enjoying meals and engaging in conversation with one another. We do this at our house but I'm always surprised at how few people actually sit down at a table to eat.
    Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.

    Bad name too - has soy in the name so I thought it might contain soy it seems it doesn't .
    Name is a reference to Soylent Green movie.

    Wiki: In 2022, with 40 million people in New York City alone, housing is dilapidated and overcrowded; homeless people fill the streets and food is scarce; and most of the population survives on rations produced by the Soylent Corporation, whose newest product is Soylent Green, a green wafer advertised to contain "high-energy plankton", more nutritious and palatable than its predecessors "Red" and "Yellow", but in short supply........... human corpses are converted into Soylent Green wafers


    So really bad name.


    -------

    Wiki :

    Soylent is a food substitute intended to supply all of a human body's daily nutritional needs, made from powdered starch, whey protein, olive oil, and raw chemical powders.

    Below are the ingredients that Rhinehart arrived at after his first 30 days of experimentation. Many are not readily available and must be ordered from laboratory supply stores.

    Carbohydrates (200g), in the form of oligosaccharides such as maltodextrin
    Protein (50g), in a powdered form such as whey protein isolate
    Fat (65g), in the form of olive oil
    Sodium (2.4g), from table salt
    Potassium (3.5g), in the form of potassium gluconate
    Chloride (3.4g), also from table salt Fiber (5g)
    Calcium (1g), in the form of calcium carbonate Iron (18 mg), from an iron chelate
    Phosphorus (1g), from monosodium phosphate Iodine (150μg)
    Magnesium (500 mg)
    Zinc (15 mg) Selenium (70μg)
    Copper (2 mg)
    Manganese (2 mg)
    Chromium (120μg)
    Molybdenum (75μg)

    After three months, Rhinehart made some changes based on experience and further reading. He replaced half the maltodextrin with oat flour, and added creatine, coenzyme Q10, and 2 g of sulfur from methylsulfonylmethane. The oat flour provides 40 g of fiber per day, and continues to provide energy after the initial "kick" from the maltodextrin. Because oat flour is not a raw chemical, he had to adjust the amounts of other ingredients to compensate. He adds ethyl vanillin to
    Most of that stuff was written when it seemed like crime was out of control in The USA. Now the media tries to do it despite the reality.

    I like food far too much to consume this gunk. Even if it would make me live fifteen years longer I still wouldn't touch it.

    Because he tried to do it with a scientific approach rather than some bullshit, ill thought out vegan idea.

    Anyway I find this idea very interesting, though I doubt I could do it myself.

    Did you see this? Poor guy. Why would you want to waste your life drinking something that "looks like semen".
    Real food is just so much more appealing!
    Doesn't all dairy look like semen?

    Who cares about primal though. This is really intriguing for me, but I want to see some facts and empirical studies done before I say anything more.

    Ooh, I just thought of the backpacking possbilities. I wonder if it's stable at room temp? If it's compact, it could make an ideal pack food.
