Soylent review

Soylent is the Silicon Valley sensation that describes itself as ‘the on-the-go meal you’ve been waiting for’. Designed to help time-strapped individuals be more productive and healthy in their diet decisions, the product comes in three flavours, Cacao, Original and Cafe Mocha and contains the full nutritional value of a meal with 26 vitamins and minerals.

From their stateside success, Soylent  has made the leap to the UK and partnered up with Endpoint to fuel the team’s path to success. In the process,  they have sent me a case of product to enjoy which I have reviewed below for your insight. Don’t bother grabbing the popcorn, Soylent has you covered.

Before trying out the product, I was quite skeptical and had no desire to change my diet as I was happy with my eating choices and habits. However, upon some reflection, I opened my first bottle and decided to give the product a go.

To my delight, the Cacao flavour actually tasted like a chocolate milkshake! I was also surprised by how full I felt after finishing the bottle – definitely stopped me from thinking about eating anything else.

It was at this moment that I realised that I had been over-eating every time I had lunch. The constant urge to eat past my hunger fell flat with Soylent which provides a portioned and complete meal.

Being a university student, it had never dawned on me that I don’t eat anything before my lectures. I would end up skipping breakfast and lunch, usually opting to grab something in town (which would be expensive) or not eating all together.

I took a bottle of Soylent with me and, lo and behold, I actually paid attention in class! I didn’t have to make a morning coffee or spend time worrying about food, I just grabbed a bottle and headed out the door which allowed me to focus on my lecture rather than on the food I hadn’t eaten, wanted to eat etc.

I also found Soylent incredibly useful during my university gaming league games. During the matches, I didn’t have time to run downstairs and make  food as we were playing against other universities around the UK one after another. Thankfully, all I needed to do was grab a bottle of Soylent and I was able to drink my food while staying focused on the match.

If you’re like me and you don’t have enough time in your life to sit down and make food before your day starts, then Soylent may be a fantastic option for you.  Whether it’s because you need to grab it when running out the door or you can’t take your eyes off the screen, Soylent is convenient and looks after your body.

Check out the product on Amazon UK where you can get a case (12 meals) for £39 or follow them on Twitter to keep up to date with new flavours and products!
