However—and it’s a big however—everyone’s schedule and likes and wants are different. It’s all part of life’s rich tapestry. And, because of Soylent, I have the option of glugging my way through a fast liquid lunch when I don’t feel like keeping the larder stocked—and can also enjoy cooking and eating a fabulous dinner with my wife when the mood strikes.

Most of the articles I’ve seen about Soylent are just pure food snobbery (to quote Rob Rhinehart… I love that phrase!) and ill-informed or misdirected anger. This one is fairly good, though personally I would have preferred to have heard after 2 or 3 days, rather than an article based only upon first impressions that will stick eternally to the intestinal walls of the internet, and perhaps not be followed up on.
I’m really hoping the author continues to write about his experiences with the product over time. My first taste wasn’t so great either for the same reason the author found (not letting it get cold first) but after that first day, it’s been amazing.
