    Liquid "foods"

    So I've been eating this SOYLENT stuff for a few weeks. Not full-time, but just for lunch at work most days. It tastes too terrible to eat regularly, but it's pretty serviceable for "I am hungry and that is inconvenient" type situations. At least when I dump a bunch of cocoa and sugar into it, so it tastes kind of like a chocolate/bread smoothie.

    I'd much rather eat pizza all the time, but that probably won't be good for me in the long run. Does anyone else here have experience with these, uh, food things?

    All I know about liquid food is that it's given to stomach cancer patients during their dying months. And to astronauts, allegedly.

    I drink a gross amount of protein shakes. They're getting pretty damn good with flavors these days.

    It's not exactly on the soylent level of things but with a few modifications it's easily workable as a meal replacement.

    That sounds miserable.

    Don't be silly, we all know they eat mostly ice cream.

    just drink fruit smoothies, dump a bunch a fruit (and veggies) into a blender, done. delicious, lots of fibre, almost no preparation.

    Smoothies and fruit juices are a new risk to health, US scientists warn

    Innocent Smoothies claims that people who drink juice have better diets and lower rates of obesity than others, although the studies it cited had funding from the juice industry.

    Commercial juice yeah! Thats flavoured perfumed sugar water. Blended fresh fruit is healthy as fuck. There is no need to buy your beverages in a bottle. Unless it's water. Even then it's a bit of a scam.

    Yes well there is also another article that said drinking smoothies is not as healthy as eating the fruit/veg whole, since the body has trouble processing it and recognising it for what it is. But it might have been in German and I can't find it now

    That said, I am absolutely guilty of regular smoothie consumption myself.
