A hands-down spectacular idea and implementation. I ate Soylent for months, and have even eaten it both as a snack, then a meal, and then as my only food. Highly recommended, not just for diet or general health but for lifestyle.

  • TODO - Finish the linking.

I gave it away, though to whom I cannot recall.
