Soylent. Is. ???.
Since my crockpot, low-ing away on the counter, fairly whispers "lazy lazy cook", I decided to read up on a way to avoid cooking altogether. In fact, to dispense with eating food in the usual sense.
There is this liquid food replacement called "Soylent", a name irreverently inspired by a macabre alternative food called "Soylent Green" in the 1973 movie of the same name.
It is best explained by reading the blog where its creator first described his project:
His goal, as I understand it, is to eventually get the cost to $5/day for a liquid food replacement that will require no cooking and be suitable for long term, err, ingestion.
Now, some of me thinks this is pretty horrifying, and some of me thinks it is pretty pointless. After all, I want to cook! And if I simply wanted to stay fed, I could do it on $5/day, and some of you could do it on a lot less. But some of me thinks this is sort of interesting, even though I predict a commercial calamity.
Soylent is supposedly going into limited commercial production now, through Kickstarter and other investors. I have thought about ordering a week's worth ($65), but haven't pulled the trigger.
Is this of any interest to anyone? If you had a week's supply of Soylent, what would you do with it?
