As pictured, this is the basic package of Soylent with the oil additive (containing your Omega-3 and Omega-6), scoop, and release notes/instruction manual. According to the Soylent manual, you’re supposed to ramp up the number of meals you replace over the course of five days. On the first day, you replace one meal, then you replace two, and finally you replace all three meals. Each replacement accounts for one-third the total amount of vitamins you’re supposed to intake per day according to the recommended allowances as determined by the FDA. (more…)

Every once in a while, Julia goads me into making gingerbread cookies. Gingerbread is the first kind of cookie I ever made in my life, because my dad loves gingerbread and so I learned how to make it so I could bake it at will. I came up with a great recipe in middle school that I learned while taking Home Economics, but in the course of moving over nearly twenty years, I lost my notebook that had all my cool recipes in it. So, instead, I will part with the recipe I’ve been using lately. If you’re willing to do this, then feel free to take the recipe. After all, it’s on the internet…
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups dark molasses
2/3 cup cold water
7 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
Put brown sugar, shortening, molasses and water into a large bowl and mix. Then add everything else except flour and mix once more. Add flour and mix until you end up with the dough. Then chill for 2 hours.
Roll dough into quarter-inch thick slabs and cut into shapes with a floured cutter or knife.
Heat over to 350 and bake for 10-12 minutes.
