So I did it. I finally did it.
After a year of two of reading about this stuff, I gave in. Who wouldn't want to try a food which promised a perfectly balanced diet that could be consumed in 30 seconds? Soylent sounded amazing, but I was always too scared to try it. What if I was allergic? What if it secretly destroyed me from the inside out without me knowing? Will it give me cancer?
So here I am. Half a week into trying this light brown goop that tastes like plain oatmeal. And I'm fine. I haven't grown a third leg. I'm not glowing neon green. I don't even feel gross.
What's it like? Well I have a heck of a lot more time. I'm currently writing this blog post during my lunch break at GA. In the time that it usually takes me to grab my things, decide on what to eat, leave, pick it up, walk back, eat my food, and get settled again, I've consumed a much more balanced lunch than I would have gotten, added money to my Metro card, researched companies on the next project, and started writing. Not bad, eh?
I'll update a few more times. Hopefully it won't be from the hospital.
