Don't stop at just remembering... experience again!
Sold out. :(
It was $14 BTW
He deleted his comment here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M2OGS08
Public Service Announcement (for Americans):
\^Non-referral link. For anyone who wishes to try it and has $10 to waste on some drinks.
edit: Amazon.com has sold out. It is on back-order until the 16th of Oct.
edit #2: Completely sold out now. Not even on back-order. Sorry guys.
Jones soda did a partnership to make Nuka Cola Quantum.
Here's a link to the not crappy version of the page. Currently sold out though.
They're selling it again. You can buy it online or maybe find it in a store. The gas station near me sells a 16oz can for $1.
Amazon also sells Bawls, you can get 'em in in a can or bottles.
You make fun of it, but I have Death Wish coffee in my pantry, which has pretty much identical labeling.
PSA: I'm not shilling for this coffee. It's not very good.
Amazon page for Surge. In case anyone's feels nostalgic for the 90's
Well they do still have the limited edition jones soda one on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Nuka-Cola-Quantum-Fallout-Jones/dp/B016ZEGTBS
This already exists: There's a Jones soda branded as Nuka Cola Quantum that appears to be officially licensed, There also used to be a company at http://www.nukacola.eu that sold different Nuka Cola flavors (I think there was at least classic, Quantum and Victory) but it looks like that website doesn't exist anymore.
American here. Best bet is Amazon.com here
It has a sort of rusty look to it with a citrus/bubblegum flavor, at least that's the best I can describe it. Definitely
Hijacking this comment to say that it is back in stock as of this post.
If they don't, you could always sneak in your own.
Although it's expensive and does not contain vodka.
The resin that green mountain uses in their cartridges isn't recyclable or biodegradable.
These are and they're a lot cheaper. If you use a keurig 2.0 you may need a clip to bypass the DRM.
Here's the link to buy it on Amazon, it's $32 USD for a 12 pack.
[It's back] (http://amzn.com/B00OK0I4AO)
There are 97% biodegradable ones on Amazon and they're super cheap as far as k-cups go!
I would rather see Jolt cola make a comeback. I hate all this Red Bull energy drink junk (and the copycats). It makes me feel like shit after a few hours.
Apparently, they still make it, but it's not in any stores here.
Hmm. I was looking up Jolt Cola stores, and I saw Amazon is selling Surge. They're selling Jolt also, but it's super expensive.
no, its mostly inorganic metals. this vega however IS organic nongmo glutenfree and lactose free.
They just brought it back yesterday. 16-oz cans!
Need a case of Surge to go with that shirt.
For those interested in getting some of their own. It's finally back on Amazon
BUY IT NOW!
Surge is working hard to come back, Their twitter is pretty active. you can get it from Amazon too if you want. And sold here on Amazon, notice it's usually bought with munchie foods.
You can get the Surge again, fyi.
Amazon my man.
Oh, but they did.
If you want instant coffee this isn't terrible, or even Starbucks Via. Every other instant coffee I've tried has tasted like stomach acid.
formerteenager is right, pick up a case at amazon! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M2OGS08
Here you go!!!
I know what you are dealing with, and I'm so sorry that you're going through it.
What I've found helpful is to try making different levels of effortlessness for various daily tasks. Basically, it's just having contingency plans that I can implement as needed. Making them pleasant is also important.
For example, here are my breakfast contingencies:
Another thing that really helped me a lot was learning to drink more water. For almost everybody, this sounds as simple as just grabbing a water bottle and making an effort to change habits. It probably doesn't even occur to them that this might need to be streamlined for people like us.
For me, here's what worked:
These are all things that require spending some money upfront, but are cheap to maintain.
Basically, the strategy is to accept that you're already doing what you can to help yourself, so making the tasks easier will let you do more and live better with your limited energy. Having contingencies that accept how bad some days can be will help to keep one very bad day from turning into a very bad week because you won't need to stretch yourself to get something done when you can least "afford" to do so.
Don't be embarrassed or ashamed by the lengths you need to go to in order to live decently. Others won't get it, but we both know that you're already used to people not really understanding.
If you want to talk more and exchange ideas about more ways to "save spoons," then just let me know. Good luck!
It’s $5 off on Amazon right now FYI 😃
RUNA Organic Guayusa Loose Leaf Energy Tea, 1 Pound (16oz) | High Caffeine Coffee Alternative | Sustained Boost with No Jitters | Organic and Antioxidant Rich https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004FSASKU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_HyGQDbNDSCFAG
Now I want to order this https://www.deathwishcoffee.com/
If, like me, you're not picky about your coffee, but you like the convenience of a Keurig, you can get 80 K-Cups for $26. The coffee actually has great reviews, too.
So I suppose you aren't excited about the fact that Surge has been brought back as a limited relesase:
Vega Protein & Greens
Does Death Wish Coffee count?
Now you just need some Surge
Let me introduce you to Kirkland's Green Tea.. You can find it at Costco. Check the reviews!
Leninade actually looks pretty good...
If no one has read the amazon reviews for this coffee, they are an absolute goldmine.
This is what I have: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J074W94/
It’s vegan, gluten free, non-dairy (lactose free), non-gmo, soy free, and kosher. So, if any of that stuff matters to you, you’re good to go. I have it because one of my relatives lifts and trains a lot and does a ton of research for anything he takes.
Roughly $1.17 a can with free 2-day shipping for Prime members.
If you've got $15 for a single bottle, you can find out yourself
Quick edit: It looks like (from the packaging) it's just the Berry Lemonade flavor by Jones in a different wrapper.
By the above picture, it would appear they have redone the Coffiest label to be inline with the new products as well.
I just use the instant coffee. Really not a big difference to me in fresh brewed or instant. Especially when I'm out hiking, anything tastes amazing after a long day.
I use San Fransisco Bay coffee from Amazon. They'd completely recyclable and about half the price or less compared to green mountain, especially if you use the subscribe and save option. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Y59HVM
Why don't more people just use stuff like this in their Keurig? They're just as convenient, cheaper, 97% biodegradable, fare trade, and, in my experience, just better tasting than the vast majority of K-cup varieties.
don't drink too many all at once
Fuck you, where?!?!?!?!?
My god it's been done.......
You can buy surge now. Amazon and cocoa cola worked out a deal to bring back surge.
Amazon sells it by the case.
I drink the Yogi stress relief tea - it also have lavender in it. It's not nearly as intense as that, but it definitely helps me! If nothing else, I sit down for a few moments and just decompress with a cup of tea. Plus it's yummy and has cute sayings on the tabs at the end of the string.
check this product out, tastes good and gives you some electrolytes you need. http://www.amazon.com/Alacer-Corp-ElectroMIX-Emergen-C-Lemon-Lime/dp/B000KHIYNI
For all you people wondering which green tea to drink, let me introduce you to
This motherfucker right here.
Matcha is not only the best possible green tea you can have, but it's also delicious. I reuse the bag about 3 times before it starts tasting watered down, but it hardly ever gets that over-used teabag taste. And don't let the Kirkland Signature turn you off, it's still genuine matcha.
Also, you'll only like it if you like green tea in general. I've had a coworker who hates the stuff, but loves things like peppermint and sugar in her green tea (???)
Edit: I also recommend black tea. If you've tried milk tea, you've basically had black tea, except without sugar and milk. Green tea has more antioxidants than black tea, but in my opinion, black tea tastes better than green.
Yes, they were both good. I don't remember Pepsi Blue too well, but I know it had a pleasant berry flavor. Crystal Pepsi tasted the same as regular Pepsi; it was just clear. There's a soda called Not See Kola that is pretty much the same thing.
You want to know something swell? Check out Not-See Kola if you want to be able to drink the closest thing we have nowadays to classic Crystal Pepsi. Shame it has the most unfortunate name of all time or maybe more people would know about it!
Or just get coffee for your coffee...
^That's ^why ^I'm ^here, ^I ^don't ^judge ^you. ^PM ^/u/xl0 ^if ^I'm ^causing ^any ^trouble. ^WUT?
> Are you advocating for this to be a purely middle class sub?
No. I was thinking more along the lines of frugality is a means for personal joy and financial freedom. And r/frugal has become a bragging post on how not to spend money at all. Not cheapness, not frugality, but bragging. A display of anti-largess.
I'm feeling r/frugal should be a way for people to help each other see into life habits and change them. How showing me what was pulled out of a dumpster doesn't make me want to jump into a dumpster
And if someone thinks Kcups are too expensive at .70 each, I like the idea that this subreddit will help them find this option at .31 : http://www.amazon.com/San-Francisco-Bay-Coffee-80-Count/dp/B007Y59HVM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1376358171&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=san+francisco+bay+k+cups
https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Chocolate-Packaging/dp/B00J074W94/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=orgain&amp;qid=1562275690&amp;s=gateway&amp;sr=8-3&amp;th=1 I have this every day, never causes any issues for me and my stomach is extremely sensitive. Ive had both the vanilla and chocolate
If you're trying to build some muscle, it definitely is important to get enough calories. So if you've calculated your goal intake at 1515/day and you want to add a swim, you should increase your intake to account for that.
As for learning the lifts, I'd start with very basic stuff like bench press, squat, deadlift, and maybe shoulder press. There should be loads of video tutorials on YouTube for this, but proper form is extremely important to minimize risk of injury so don't be too shy about asking someone to check your form in the gym. Most good lifters will be happy to help out with spotting and/or form-checking once in a while, just try not to ask the same guy for stuff all the time or it might get annoying. The biggest single piece of advice I can give to new lifters on form is this: If your muscles are sore the next day, you're probably doing it right. If your bones or joints are sore the next day, you're probably doing something wrong.
As for getting adequate protein as a vegan, that may be your biggest challenge. This stuff is awesome, this stuff isn't bad, and this is a good recipe for a high-protein seitan.
I just bought some the other day. $14 for a dozen 16 oz cans.
Unfortunately it seems to have sold out and now people are reselling it for like $46.
Ask and you shall receive. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00M2OGS08/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1410787421&amp;sr=8-2&amp;pi=SX200_QL40
I am assuming that you're trying to make the Thai iced tea served in restaurants and bubble tea shops? If so, this mix is what you're looking for :3 It's already got the tea and spices mixed in. In trying to find a recipe online to make my own blend, this brand came up over and over, and I have to admit, it really does taste exactly the same. I've since found it in several different Asian markets, so if you have one locally, you may want to try there first. It takes a fairly high tea to water ratio, because it needs to be very strong, and you will need to get a can of sweetened condensed milk to pour in after it's chilled.
Yes we do: https://www.amazon.com/Soylent-Ready---Drink-Food-Bottles/dp/B01EUEIL3E/ref=sr_tnr_p_1_5782436011_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1466358759&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=soylent
I don't think it's an out of stock issue. According to the product page, it is "under review". Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EUEIL3E
They haven't officially been released yet.
I commented earlier in the thread but I'm a strong proponent of Soylent as well.
I suggest trying both the powder and the liquid. Powder is much cheaper($1.83 powder vs $2.63 liquid per 400kcal), but that won't do you much good if it just sits in your pantry because you don't want to clean the container to mix up a new batch and wait for it to sit.
If you end up going liquid, it's now available on Amazon Launchpad - https://www.amazon.com/Soylent-Ready-Drink-Food-Bottles/dp/B01EUEIL3E?ie=UTF8&amp;*Version*=1&amp;*entries*=0
If you set up a subscription for either the powder or the liquid on soylent.com, you get 5% off. If you subscribe to the liquid on amazon, it's 5% off, but if you subscribe to 5 items on amazon it goes up to 15% off.
I know this looks like a shill post, but I really have no association with soylent other than finding their product to be a real benefit to me. With that said, check out /r/soylent as well, because one thing that really makes me love Soylent is they really don't care about people making DIY copies or even competing with them, so there are a lot of soylent clones out there and if you're not in america some of those other ones will be easier to get. A lot of the clones have more flavor options which I'd love to try, but if you are in america, most of the clones are much more expensive to ship here.
You can of course flavor soylent yourself however you want as its very neutral, both powder and liquid. With the liquid I like to squirt in some chocolate syrup and just shake it in the bottle. With the powder, flavored protein powder works well if you know what you're doing (e.g you arent depending on the bottle being 400kcals /trying to use it to track your intake closely), and blending the powder with some fresh fruit is a good way to go. Though I most often just drink it as is, it's not bad, it's just not good, it's just..what you need.
Looks to be Cacao, and all the caffeen based ones.
Soylent Meal Replacement Shake, Cacao, 14 oz Bottles, 12 Pack (Packaging May Vary) https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01NBIF6WS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_m0OmDbG1P7N3R

Looks like they start shipping January 1st.
I eat a lot of "snacks" as meals, so these are my ideas for chow on the go without a fridge:
Yup. They are on amazon and actually taste pretty good. I found these ones in a restaurant in Chicago for 2 bucks a bottle.
Edit: here is a non amazon link from the bottlers. 1$ per bottle+Shipping
Try Not See Cola. It's basically the same formula as Crystal Pepsi, and is said to taste identical.
Coffee you say?
I absolutely LOVE Orgain
If you have a Costco card, they sell a bigger tub (a little under 3 lbs) and it's cheaper. The thumbnails on that link allow you to see the ingredient list.
Regarding your question about helping the environment: http://thevegancalculator.com/ <-- Go here and put in "1 year" into the calculator. Just one year, you're saving almost half a million gallons of fresh water, 15 THOUSAND pounds of grain, 11 THOUSAND square feet of forest and 7 THOUSAND pounds of carbon dioxide (compared to a typical animal-including diet). The calculator is supported by sources. Just by changing a few minor things about your lifestyle, you can have an incredibly drastic impact on the world.
TL;DR regarding expense and difficulty - if you live in a very rural area in the USA, it can take some difficulty to find a good source of cheap bulk beans / lentils / vegetables / bulk (by weight) dried veggies. But they're sooooooo cheap; normally you can eat for $1-2 a day, plus B12 vitamin expenses ($5 a month).
Longer explanation regarding expensive/difficult: Expense is very low; I pay much less now for food than before going vegan. Difficulty may vary depending on where you live. I happen to live in Denver, and it's very easy for me to find pretty much any substitute/vegetable I want. If you cook your own meals, there's really nothing different about cooking vegan - just use vegetable oil/avocado oil instead of butter, and buy veggies instead of meat. That's about it. Just make sure you eat a lot of beans or lentils or tofu.
When I first became vegan, I was hit with the reality of vitamin/protein differences - I needed to purchase some vitamin supplements. Here's the list I have:
These two made a big difference in my life. About 3 months after going vegan I started having some troubles related to protein (I work out a lot and my body wasn't used to the lower intake). I try to hit about 90g of protein a day (I am a reasonably athletic 6' male). I think a lot of vegans downplay the issues involved with protein - it's the source of a TON of jokes in the vegan community - but the truth is a lot of vegans simply don't get enough protein. And then they fall back into eating meat because they didn't know better. Which is really pretty silly because it's incredibly easy to supplement if you can't get it in your diet.
Other than what I've mentioned above, here's some things to consider (this list is HEAVILY biased towards a lazy, no-cook approach. If you have any cooking skill, just cook your own veggie meals, they're awesome, cheaper and fresher than anything listed below, but this is for the lazy days):
Finally, there are a few things I'd like to point out in MY PERSONAL OPINION that might turn you "off" of vegan foods if you try them off the bat (a lot of people buy terrible choices and then say "vegan alternatives are bad". No, they are just poor choices lol)
The best advice I can give is to JUST TRY IT. Just go a few days making vegan food. You don't need to say "I'M GOING VEGAN", you don't need to have some public moment - you can just privately try it out. It's pretty fun!
Have I got some news for you!
Here's a link to Amazon Smile for the product page. Always helps to support charity when you buy things like this.
It's sold out for now, but it'll be back soon!
Yeah, its back now.
Surge is back!
Looks like its still available: https://www.amazon.com/Surge-Citrus-Flavored-Soda-16fl/dp/B00M2OGS08
SURGE IS ON AMAZON!!!
Just keep your eye on http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M2OGS08?keywords=surge%20soda&amp;qid=1452003193&amp;ref_=sr_1_1&amp;s=grocery&amp;sr=1-1 this will let you know when they've done a production run again because it will only be like $14 for the case.
My typical recovery drink is a protein smoothie (Vega protein powder, frozen berries, and water or almond milk).
Also recently I discovered Vega Recovery Accelerator, which I think works very well. It is more convenient than a smoothie when I am not at home.
This is the brand I use, the whole bag makes 4ish gallons and takes about 4-8 hours depending on how strong you want it. I just use a large stock pot and stir it every 20 min or so but there is a mesg holder you can get for the tea if you aren't going to be around to stir it e enough
Blegh. I got some lite salt last weekend and tried pouring it into my water because I have heard people say they do that. Apparently I should have put some flavoring in there, because even though I thought it was a small amount of salt for 24oz of water, it was pretty much salt water. And I was determined to drink it! So, that was gross.
This stuff: Elctro-Mix is my godsend right now. It has ZERO calories & carbs and it isn't crazy sweet like other powders. It has a tart flavor, I hate when drinks are super sweet and fake tasting. I drink 1 in the morning with 12oz of water, and keep a pack on me jic I crash during the day.
The same company (alacer) makes this. 0 carbs, no vitamins, just electrolytes.
I use a coffee based rub at my places for braised pork shoulder. However I use [instant espresso] (http://www.amazon.com/Medaglia-DOro-Instant-Espresso-Coffee/dp/B002BTI9B0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1407518248&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=instant+espresso). the rub is made up of the coffee, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Never tried it on short ribs, but its very tasty, the coffee is subtle though.
Basically, yeah. I use this one (although that's an absurd price).
I don't see why you couldn't use instant coffee, although I'd bump it to 1.5tsp because it's a little weaker. I use 2tsp of espresso powder when I make this because I like getting a little more coffee flavor.
Do it You won't regret it. There's a link there, it's just small.
Note that starting in January it was made with half the sugar and now contains artificial sweeteners.
There you go, knock yourself out. https://www.amazon.ca/Death-Wish-Coffee-Strongest-Organically/dp/B006CQ1ZHI
There's a company out in california that makes k-kup compatible cups using all biodegradable materials. And they are cheaper than store brand generics. They come out to 37 cents a cup instead of 50 for store brand and 75 for keurig brand
Soylent Coffiest Read to Drink Breakfast, 12 pack - LIVE NOW ($27.30)
Orgain Protein Powder, 2.03 lbs - LIVE NOW ($18.49 for vanilla)
There are also plant protein powders with no soy if you just want to avoid it altogether.
Here's what I use, tastes really good.
But if you really want soy, here's some info so you can decide for yourself. Looks like you should be fine as long as you're not using excessive amounts.
I just bought this Orgain Protein Powder in chocolate. I mixed almond milk + tablespoon of peanut butter + two cups of this protein powder. Tastes pretty good and it's pretty cheap. :)
and on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Surge-Citrus-Flavored-Soda-16fl/dp/B00M2OGS08
Fucking mobile links... here's a real link.
Have you tried the Vega protein powder? I switched from Quest to Vega around 6 months ago because I don't like how many ingredients are in Quest. I use the vanilla and I really like it! I don't even feel the need to add anything into it to besides water. It has 5 grams of carbs per serving.
That IS Prime Pantry. And $14 a case.
Here's a more specific link.
They started producing Surge again in small batches recently. The last batch sold out for the general public, but if you've got Amazon Prime you can do the whole Prime Pantry thing.
I'm sitting on a couple 12-packs I bought when it was still in stock.
Surge is back. All my local stores carry it but if you can't find it they sell it by the case on amazon.
Edit: here's the link to buy it
Didn't they make nuka-cola for fallout 4? I don't think it was coke that did it though.
Found it! It was Jones Sodas' that did it! (A FAR superior line of soda's imo)
I've been looking at Soylent for a while. I've heard good things, and it seems like it would be well suited to being a meal replacement for people with IBD. I have to mention that I haven't tried it yet though, so I can't guarantee the quality.
I am 6'1" and 135lbs. I have a hard time consuming enough calories with regular foods so I use Soylent to make up the extra calories. I drink 2 bottles of Soylent per day (Each bottle is 14oz) which equates to 800 calories total. That means I only need 400 calories for each of my 3 meals per day unless I expend a lot of calories through exercise.
The most important thing I have learned to prevent weight loss is to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day.
Ecto-1 is the Ghostbusters' car. Ecto Cooler is a Ghostbusters branded Hi-C drink.
I'd imagine Walmart carries it. I see Amazon carries it but it is sold out: https://www.amazon.com/Hi-C-Cooler-Citrus-Juice-Ounce/dp/B01FUB9XMY/
Boy, do I have some good news for you.
Yes, they now do. 2.0 at least, not 1.5 There's also plenty of people reselling as well. Here's their official link.
You can subscribe 5 times (60 bottles a month) to it to get a 15% discount.
See here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EUEIL3E/
You can look here. It's also on Amazon with free 1 day shipping for prime members.
Regular Soylent Drink also on sale.
As is Nectar...but it's nectar.
You were probably looking at listings from unauthorized resellers, which is a common mistake because Amazon does fuck-all to clarify if you're looking at the real listing or not.
You're better off bookmarking the correct page since Amazon makes it so difficult to find: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EUEIL3E/
Any other 2.0 listing you might find is an unauthorized reseller, and at the current time any listing for any Soylent product other than 2.0 is also unauthorized. They did have bars officially listed for a while, and I think they're working on Coffiest. Also, if the page doesn't say "Amazon Launchpad", you're definitely in the wrong place.
The base Amazon price and the base website price are always identical. The Soylent website offers a 5% discount for subscriptions; Amazon offers a base 5% discount for subscriptions but it rises to 15% if you have 5 or more Subscribe & Save items shipped to you in your monthly shipment. You can do this with 5 boxes of 2.0, but you have to do 5 individual subscriptions; it won't count if you do 1 subscription with a quantity of 5.
You can get the same 15% discount on the Soylent website with the 5% subscription discount + 10% coupon discount; there are permanent 10% coupon codes and occasional larger coupon codes, but they only apply to the first shipment of the subscription so you have to constantly cancel and re-subscribe. Amazon is a lot simpler, plus a lot of people have credit cards that give cash back on Amazon purchases.
Seems Amazon has it back up. Not 100% sure
EDIT: You need prime to order.
Veganuary's whole website is a great resource for anyone transitioning to veganism; their "Starter Kit" has links to lots of helpful videos and articles, as well as lists of recipes for creating weekly meal plans.
The Stingy Vegan has tons of frugal tasty recipes organized by prep time.
What’s For Dinner When You’re Vegan, But Can’t Cook? is useful if you're less into cooking. Gardein's products are also fantastic if you're into minimal cooking effort; just stir fry them and add a frozen veggie mix to the pan and you have a quick and easy meal that's tasty, filling, and full of protein and veggies.
The Vegan-for-a-Week Challenge: How to Survive and Thrive has some really useful information for the first week or two, even if you plan on continuing as vegan.

Helpful hints we wish we knew when we went vegan!
Nutrition info you can trust—from a Registered Dietitian
Vegan Health is hands down the best resource for evidence-based vegan nutrition out there, so if nothing else I highly recommend bookmarking their website! Check out their Daily Needs to make sure you're not missing any necessary food groups or supplements (you have a B12 supplement, right?).
As far as snacks or packed lunches, I used to bring a PB&J sandwich to work for breakfast and a hummus wrap for lunch. I would prepare them both in 10 min before leaving for work. You can add almost literally anything to a hummus wrap, I would add pretty much anything I had in my fridge; usually avocado and tomato but I've done hummus+peppers+lettuce and even hummus+banana!
Trader Joe's Cuban Style Black Beans are cooked and come with green peppers, onions, garlic, and other spices. All you need is a can opener and you can eat them straight out of the can, or heat them in a microwave if you don't want them cold (in a microwave-safe dish). Add them to a tortilla with lettuce, tomatoes, and/or guac and you have a 10-second burrito.
Lately I've been supplementing my meals with Soylent, which has helped me a lot (I've been trying to gain weight). It's great when I'm in a rush and just want to grab something as I'm heading out the door.
This is a recipe that's a staple in my household, you pretty much just throw everything in a pot and leave it for several hours:
Super tasty chili recipe:
· 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed & cooked according to package directions
· 1 onion, chopped
· 3 cloves garlic, minced
· 1 jalapeno, diced (optional, see note about heat level in directions)
· 1 carrot, peeled & chopped
· 2 celery stalks, chopped
· 2 bell peppers (any color), chopped
· 1 zucchini (large), chopped
· 3 cans beans, drained & rinsed (suggested: black, kidney, great northern)
· 2 cans diced tomatoes
· 15 oz tomato sauce
· 15 oz condensed tomato soup
· 1 Tbsp cumin
· 3 Tbsp chili powder
· 1/4 cup brown sugar
· 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
· salt & pepper
Saute onions and garlic in large pot until soft. (NOTE: If you are using a slow-cooker instead of the stove top OR are planning on letting chili simmer for 3+ hours, just throw the onions and garlic in raw & skip this step. If you are making the chili for a faster turn-around than 2 hours, save yourself the onion breath and sauté! Planning to consume between 2 and 3 hours? Hmm Good Luck…)
Add all veggies to pot and stir; i.e. jalapeno, carrot, celery, bell pepper and zucchini. If you like a little bit of heat, leave all the seeds in the jalapeno & rough chop it (you can handle it). But if you don’t like any bite at all, then remove the seeds.
Add cooked quinoa to pot and stir.
Add spices and base to pot and stir; i.e. canned tomatoes (with juices), tomato soup, cumin, chili powder, brown sugar, cayenne, salt & pepper to taste
Add rinsed beans. Stir.
Let simmer on low for multiple hours, until vegetables are desired level of crunchy/soft.
NOTE: This is the original recipe we used, but since then we vary the vegetables and basically just throw in whatever we have/feel like. For instance, sometimes we do potatoes instead of quinoa. Also, we never use jalapeno peppers, I think my bf just uses more tomato sauce instead of tomato soup, and we always just use garlic powder rather than fresh cloves.
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's situation. As a fellow TBI sufferer who still deals with all the associated bullshit on a daily basis, and as a fellow son of a mother with less-than-ideal mental/cognitive health, my heart goes out to you both. Biiiiig post coming up. I know you frequent /r/nootropics and similar subs so sorry if I'm just telling you stuff you already know.
It goes without saying that it would be ideal if you could get her to consult a specialist about her condition, preferably a good neurologist and psychiatrist who can work together to develop a medication, supplementation, diet, exercise, general lifestyle etc. regimen tailored specifically to her. If you have the means to do so, make it happen.
First things first, it would obviously be incredibly beneficial if you could convince her to cut out or drastically reduce her alcohol consumption. It sounds likely that she's self-medicating for depression related to her head injury and its consequences (I was there for a long time), so you might see about getting her onto a prescribed antidepressant. (Side note: it is crucial that she see a good psychiatrist to discuss taking any prescription psychiatric medication. Despite being legally allowed to prescribed many potent psychoactive drugs, GP's simply do not have the expertise necessary to make a good diagnosis and prescribe accordingly. Chances are if you ask for an antidepressant they'll just give you whatever a major pharma company shill most recently gave them samples of. Speaking from experience.) If you don't want to bring in the "big guns" so to speak just yet, then bacopa monnieri might be a good place to start. Very mild, very well tolerated, with a host of nootropic benefits to boot - it's known to improve memory significantly after about 3 months of supplementation. I started taking it about a month ago and for me personally it's been amazingly helpful; I can't wait for the memory enhancement to kick in. If it keeps on working like it has been, I don't think I'll ever stop taking it.
If you don't think she'll ever be willing to go completely sober, then make sure she's minimizing the harmful effects of alcohol with MisterYouAreSoDumb's damage/hangover prevention stack. (mind that NAC should always be taken before drinking, not during or after.)
I recommend trying to get her to replace alcohol with something less harmful, maybe every second drinking day or something at first. The obvious recommendation is marijuana, though as you're undoubtedly aware there are a ton of possible downsides to weed use as well. In the long run though, from a cognitive health point of view, it's far safer. If you're able to, get a few strains with different cannabinoid profiles for her to try so she can decide what she likes best - a high CBD/low THC strain (typically indicas) is probably more similar to alcohol than high THC, though it's still very different. If you decide to go with weed, make sure she's actively endeavouring to replace alcohol with it, rather than just adding it to her usual booze usage. Make edibles, extracts, or get her a vape if smoking doesn't appeal to her.
Then there's Kava. Its effects are probably a little closer to alcohol's than weed (though again, quite different) and it's much easier to get your hands on as it's legal pretty much everywhere (and easy enough to get through customs if you're somewhere lame like Australia). A good, affordable "beginner's" kava that she can try to see if she likes the effects is Yogi Tea's Stress Relief Tea
, as it's heavily flavoured and thus masks the acquired taste/feeling of kava pretty well. To really get a "drunk" feeling from it though, you may need to use 3 or 4 bags. Brew it in coconut milk or half water/half coconut cream to make it especially tasty. Or, if she's willing to tolerate the taste, go straight for a high quality source like Hawaiian Kava and brew it traditionally. Just make sure that she doesn't have any alcohol in her system whenever she uses it, as apparently that's a dangerous combo.
Also, if she does decide to quit booze at any point, make sure she does so safely.
Now, as for things to take... I'm still trying to perfect a regimen myself.
Over on the NeuroTalk forum, home to one of the largest online community of concussion and TBI sufferers, the recommended stack, as put together by the granddaddy of the forum, Mark of Idaho, is as follows:
>B-12 (500 to 1000 mcgs daily)
a B-50 complex, for all the other B's so you get a good balance of B's
a high potency multi-vitamin like GNC Mega Women/Men. Centrum and One a Day are too weak.
Niacin, 200 to 500 mgs
Some extra anti-oxidants, Vit C and Vit E
D3, plenty of this, 1000 to 5000 iu's
Omega 3 fish oil, with a proper balance of Omega 6 and 9
Calcium with magnesium, 500 mgs per day
I also have added
Curcumin (pricy but worth it) 950 mgs daily This is a Turmeric extract
DHEA, 25 mgs , a hormone that helps the body balance the other hormones, If your skin gets oily try 1/2 of a 25 mgs tablet. I only take a half of a tablet.
a Costco High Energy multipack (7 pieces) in place of the multi-vitamin
I have recently added:
Resveratrol, it is supposed to help the Omega 3 fish oil work better
Garlic capsules for cholesterol
L-theanine for GABA regulation
I don't know that it's perfect but it's probably a good place to start. I think he might be going overboard with the amount of B vitamins in there... As long as she's taking the full dosage of a good multivitamin like Source Naturals Life Force (gets pretty pricey at 4 capsules a day, my approach is to take half the recommended dose and then add in a sensibly-dosed B complex. Any complex that uses methylfolate instead of folic acid should be of good quality.) she should be all set for B vitamins. Curcumin to reduce any residual inflammation is probably a good idea too - it's pretty pricey though. Make sure to get pills with added piperine, and I've seen it recommended that you take it with a fat source as well.
This thread, though more specifically targeted at treating a brain injury immediately after it's happened, is a great resource. Anything that's good for the immediate effects of a brain injury is probably going to be beneficial in the long term as well.
Oh! Also, the uridine stack. I don't recall the exact theory behind it, but it gets a lot of buzz as a means of preventing/reducing dementia/alzheimer's/general cognitive aging, so much so that somebody turned it into a drink which they now make a buttload of money from.
I'm super tired so I'm gonna just wrap this up neatly now... Might come back to edit it, but you're probably sick of reading crap from me as it is! For your mom, neurogenesis is king now, pretty much. Help her give her brain what it needs to heal and grow, and keep it away from things that hinder or harm these processes (booze, stress, poor diet/lifestyle, etc.). Lion's Mane is a good start, but I'd highly recommend looking into Cerebrolysin (requires injection), possibly P21 (like a refined Cerebrolysin, but very new to the market, so kinda risky), Semax (typically injected but if you send an email to [email protected] and ask nicely they'll be able to hook you up with a nasal spray), Noopept (should be taken sublingually), piracetam (has been studied fairly extensively for post-TBI, seems quite beneficial), NSI-189, etc. Supplement-wise, this kind of stuff is probably going to be the most beneficial for your mom in the long run. I recommend checking out this post by user Rior on Longecity about recovering from brain damage. It's a thread about MDMA-related damage, but his advice is quite general and is based on his own experience with recovering from multiple concussions.
Whew! Definitely wasn't planning to write that much, haha. Really hope I've been of some help man. Best of luck to you and your mom.
I also use an electrolyte mix that I mix into water 2x a day. The first time I did Keto, I had a headache and leg cramps about a week in and I drank two of these before I went to bed and my symptoms went away by morning. I drink two packets a day now usually.
Funny enough, another user here mentioned them (as they have 3g of carbs per packet)
I add them to water and it tastes like a sports drink. It's very helpful if you're used to sodas and don't think you can drink water alone. I would stick to one packet a day and then make sure to eat potassium rich foods like avocado and spinach.
For everyday, convenient "I-need-some-tea-in-me-stat" drinking I quite enjoy Costco's house brand green tea bags. It's actually Ito En tea, sold under the Kirkland name. 100 bags to a box, and if I recall it's about $15. Looks like this (Amazon link; though Costco is cheaper).
the costco ito-en bagged sencha + matcha. it's like 100 bags for 10-15 bucks in a costco and on amazon it is almost 20.
supposedly, not see cola from germany tastes very akin to crystal pepsi. yes, it sounds like nazi and is from germany, thats the joke.
there are some other alternatives, but thats the best from what i hear. what did crystal pepsi taste like? it tasted like pepsi, but with a slightly lighter flavor. the main difference between pepsi and crystal p was the use of light corn syrup over heavy and the removal of some additives.
Terrible name, great taste.
There's also one called "Not See Cola" which taste like Crystal Pepsi.
Try instant coffee. I picked up this brand at Market of Choice not too long ago, and it's actually really tasty. Just add water.
What you're referring to? It's the best cup of coffee I've ever had while backpacking
I love Yerba mate and feel great after drinking it! With that said, I would look into Guayusa. While I do enjoy Yerba, I prefer Guayusa overall. I think the taste is slightly better, it has a certain natural sweetness to it. It is a cousin to Yerba and comes from a similar region, so its very comparable. The main reason I bring it up though is because you wanted to mix L-theanine with your Yerba. Unlike Yerba, Guayusa naturally has L-theanine in it. Honestly, Guayusa is probably my favorite beverage. If you were interested in trying it, this is my favorite brand https://www.amazon.com/RUNA-Organic-Guayusa-Tea-Antioxidant/dp/B004FSASKU/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1535924939&amp;sr=8-3&amp;keywords=runa+loose+leaf
It has a lot of different names, but i'm sure this is it. Found it under the name Guayusa on Amazon.
I like Runa brand: https://www.amazon.com/RUNA-Organic-Guayusa-Tea-Antioxidant/dp/B004FSASKU
Here's where you can find locations selling it. It's also available to buy on Amazon.
Umm, this Dragon Ball Z Funko is amazing, I didn't know they made my husband into an action figure!
Dragonite is also very adorable <3 He was always a fav of mine!
Also, Death Wish Coffee sounds very interesting and mysterious. Hmm.
Whats the raffle phrase? :D
Not OP, but I used to drink generic, regular coffee with 2 creams, 2 sugars. After trying "better" coffee and playing around with the Keurig at work, you begin to appreciate the actual blends and boldness of coffees, whereas adding creamer and sugar actually ruined the taste(s) for me. Aka different blends, stronger roasts, etc etc.
Right now, my favorite coffee is San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser and it's delicious!
$29.75 for 80 San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser cups is tough to beat.
It's good stuff for Keurig coffee, and the cups are 97% biodegradable, so you don't have to feel like a schmuck for wasting a shit ton of plastic.
But they make it conveniently!
Have you tried the San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser? It's actually really good. The mesh bottom helps I think. And relatively inexpensive.
I like this brand protein powder, chocolate flavour. It doesn't taste horrible mixed with only water, and it dissolves well if you let it sit for at least half an hour.
Also, have you tried dried bean curd? Cheap, and according to the nutrition label on my package, one sheet/serving has 50g of protein.
Non-whey and non-plant, so are you basically specifically looking for egg protein recommendations?
I usually recommend Orgain, but it's plant based. However, it tastes great! And it's easy to get at Costco or Amazon.
Seconding Orgain! Also, very affordable at Costco or Amazon.
My next try after I use up what I have is True Nutrition Vegan Optimizer - More flavors and a slightly better price, but mostly just more flavors!
Super good and cheap. Plus prime shipping. 👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿
Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Creamy Chocolate Fudge, Vegan, Gluten Free, Kosher, Non-GMO, 2.03 Pound, Packaging May Vary https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J074W94/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_6KsvCb1YG2DE4
I've tried pretty much every vegan protein powder out there, and my top favorites are Garden of Life Greens & Protein and Orgain Organic Protein-- both in chocolate. I've tried Aloha recently and was not thrilled with the flavor or texture at all, so I'd skip that brand. Vega is okay but is more expensive than the rest and is not organic, so I just crossed it out on my list.
If you need to add more protein and require a vegetarian option, I'd just suggest quinoa, beans, legumes, eggs, and nuts. I've been a vegetarian for more than half of my life, and those have always been my go-to's. But if having issues eating in general is hard, just do a double serving of protein powder a day (in a green smoothie for extra calories/nutrition) to meet those goals.
I break out with acne every time I drink a whey shake, so I switched to plant-based protein powders a few years ago. I tried a few hemp powders and they tasted awful. I found a powder I really like from the Orgain brand. It's comparable in taste and texture to some of the whey powders I used to drink. They sell it at Costco in Southern California on sale at $24 for 2.74 lbs, which I stock up on, otherwise it's $30 normally. You can also get it off Amazon.
Note: Do not get Vanilla bean, it tastes awful.
do you even lift?
I do, I usually have a scoop or two a day. I like blends. True Nutrition vegan protein optimizer is my favorite (45% pea, 45% rice, 10% hemp). And it's cheap, $9/lb. You can also build your own blend on their website, it's super easy. And they have a coupon that saves you 5% off site-wide, never expires "GOVEGAN"
I also hear good things about Orgain, but haven't tried it. Saw it on amazon earlier for $17 ($8.50/lb) https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Powder-Chocolate/dp/B00J074W94/?th=1
My husband can't take dairy either, and he mixes this protein powder with almond milk. It's not too bad!
Bro, do you even google your whalez? http://www.amazon.com/SURGE-12-16-FL-Cans/dp/B00M2OGS08
But they're new cases :D
Wait until it gets back in stock.
They sell it on Amazon
No, I wasn't drinking them (well unless I was at age 3) then. Its from the 2014 re-release.
It is normally $14. But it is sold out and people are price gouging.

People, people, the real news here is that Sruge is back!!! Gotta cop it on Amazon, and it is currently sold out. Cannot wait to go into a diabetic shock or caffeine related coma when I finally get some.
Some of the amazon reviews are hilarious.
Vega Protein & Greens was a lifesaver for me during my first trimester. I made a smoothie every morning with just water, a banana and the powder. It is easy on the queasy tummy and has 20g of protein per serving and no sugar 👌Can't recommend it enough! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MYRXIIS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_eHbSAb46D2JVT
Check it out on Amazon! It has 20g protein and 2 servings of greens. I don't like it straight, I always add it to smoothies.
This one's good, but I'm not a tea scientist or nothin.
Yah Thai tea is a star anise tea. It's definitely not the same. It's this:
That's even the same brand the vast majority of restaurants use.
SURGE, 12 ct, 16 FL OZ Cans https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OK0I4AO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_yRdGxbMY43WT2
Amazon has Surge!
Its making a comeback slowly, starting from the east side of the country and slowly going west. Sadly it looks like it died out at Louisiana, this is where amazon steps in.
I would like to make note that sadly they didn't have surge in liquid form in the coolers, but this will work for now.
Great idea for an Amazon affiliate site. Well done.
Considering its niche popularity, nostalgic appeal, and relative affordability, you might consider adding Surge to your lineup.
> Yogi kava tea
Is this the one you like? https://www.amazon.com/Yogi-Tea-Tension-Promotes-Relaxation/dp/B0009F3QKW?th=1
I read reviews and some folks said they had changed their formula recently, so wanted to ask before ordering some.
I saw Kava at my local grocery store Ralphs. can you believe it??? Is it the same stuff as you can get online ?? It's the Yogi brand.. u know, the one that produces all those herbal teas...
Tazo Rest is pretty good and will knock you out. Yogi Tea's Kava blend is pretty good too. Personally, I also do really like just straight chamomile, especially if it's loose leaf - tends to have more flavor than the bagged version. Mint is great as well - you can get dried mint, but fresh is great, too. I keep a mint plant in my apartment and occasionally make tea with a few freshly cut sprigs. (It also makes great mint juleps and mojitos...)
You can in supermarkets in other countries.
As far as I have researched, it is relatively safe.
I use this electrolyte powder that I ordered on Amazon to make up for the missing supplements. There is no sugar but it still tastes pretty good!
If you are a tea drinker: Davidson's Bulk Tea.
Decent potassium source:
This will help! I love it! I also add salt to it. Your problem is electrolytes.
I actually started blending a Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tea and a green matcha tea together in my large liter water bottle, and it's amazing!
I also enjoy a classic Earl Grey with a bit of milk and sugar.
One of my faves is a Jujube/goji/longan berry blend. It's super common here in China, and sometimes hawthorn is included in it, too. It's naturally sweet, but adding a bit of rock sugar can be nice at times.
As for Chai, my favorite blend is Good Earth, but that was an older blend and I'm having trouble finding it online...
I take Optimum Nutrition creatine mono and whey, Nature Made fish oil, and NOW Vitamin D-3. They all seem to work for me (but I've never felt any difference with fish oil). This stuff is a relatively good green tea for cheap.
There's the Kirkland matcha green tea blend that's pretty okay.
i cold steep it
storebought, no fucking way, i don't drink that sugary shit
Kind of online I believe. Idk if it's a scam or not although it can't be very hard to make yourself just buy a glass bottle of strawberry Fago and gets some lamenant or something. If I can find a link I'll edit and linkthe site I saw it for sale.
Edit: it's from Amazon so if that's not your thing I get it
Dazu erstmal eine Not-see Cola.
You can still sort of try it if you buy some Not-See Cola. Brad of Brad Tries says they taste exactly the same.
Most 711s have little "espresso" shots available for free mixed in with the creamer cups. I usually grab a handful whenever I'm there and add them to cups of coffee at home.
They're these things: https://www.amazon.com/SToK-Caffeinated-264-Count-Single-Serve-Packages/dp/B00284TTG2
Doesn't effect the flavor much but adds a caffeine boost.
It’s the best espresso powder I’ve ever had. But it’s half the price at Smart ‘N Final. Not sure if a store like that is an option for where you’re located but just throwing that in there :) Lemme know if you try it and like it.
I haven't made coffee since I found Medagalia Instant Espresso. It's expensive on Amazon, but I buy it locally for $3.50. It's honestly amazing stuff!
I don't know about OP, but I bought my bag on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004FSASKU/ref=pe_175190_21431760_M3T1_ST1_dp_1
At basically $1/oz, it's a pretty awesome deal.
+1 for Guayusa, though I've only had Runa's version. I bought it for the cheap price and favorable Amazon reviews, but Runa claims it has ~90mg caffeine per cup (on par with coffee). I don't feel particularly buzzed with it, so YMMV, but I'm not very sensitive to caffeine anyway.
The taste took some getting used to. Like canadasmith said, it's not actually tea, so I shouldn't be surprised that it doesn't taste the same as orange pekoe or english breakfast. It seemed more "grassy", like some green teas.
I've been getting it from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004FSASKU/
I never use strong flavors. If want perfect amount of caffeine, try Guayusa Leaf. Always tasty and add that perfect extra focus effect. I use to use this alone for focus before i met kratom. Its only $20 for a bag. Its same family as Yerba Mate but better in my eyes because it dont have that nasty taste Yerba mate has. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004FSASKU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
You will never regret it, I reccomand it to everyone. And everyone who tried it fell in love with it. Plus you supporting Amazon jungles poor tribes since thats where it comes from.
This is also great to during T breaks from krarom. Just brew it and make it stronger.
something I haven't had since I visited Scotland in H.S.
It's the best
Pack of 6 half liter bottles are $15.49 (£12.39) with free shipping, delivery tomorrow anywhere in the USA.
Found it on Amazon:
It's awesome and this might be of use to you.

Its available on Amazon
This should help you out.
w/ super saver shipping
You kidding? We can even subscribe to it on Amazon and have it shipped straight to our door so we don't even have to put on pants to get more.
for me ;:-) I love you Kevin
I personally like Death Wish Coffee since it gives me a kick in the ass when I'm still feeling groggy after waking up. But it has a very high caffeine content (it claims to be the strongest coffee in the world) so it's not suitable if you have a higher caffeine sensitivity, i.e. it makes you jittery.
I also haven't tried making Death Wish Coffee in a cold brew method, and I imagine that the concentrate made from it would be very potent in terms of caffeine. Beware!
oh look, the perfect coffee for me.
Death Wish Coffee - The Worlds Strongest Coffee
Ludicrous Speed in a cup.
I use a coffee called Death Wish. Cold brewed is just smoother, but honestly i like that i can make a bunch of it over night. well afternoon + over night.
I make mine with one tablespoon of cold pressed coconut oil, three drops of ez sweets and two mini moo creamers. Of course I also use a brand of coffee called Death With Coffee...
Worlds strongest coffee.
My fiance is a math and physics major and his uncle got him a set of mugs that say "I love math, it makes people cry." He said he got them online and they had a bunch for different majors.
If he doesnt already have a press, maybe he would like one for his coffee and loose leaf teas?
Death Wish is a local coffee I tried once, and never stopped. I pretty much only drink this now. It's soooo good. It's super strong and dark. Mine is cooling off right now then I'm about to drink the entire pot.
I drank it straight black and super strong before keto, but now I add MCT oil and soluble collagen powder and it doesn't really change it.
Some of the reviews for Death Wish coffee beans make me chuckle.
We use these biodegradable pods:
San Francisco Bay OneCup, Fog Chaser, 80 Single Serve Coffees https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Y59HVM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_kkp5xbRPV1H5R
We buy them at Costco and my coffee snob DH enjoys them ;)
You can also get a reusable keurig filter and fill it with your own coffee. You just have to not overstuff it, and wash it of course!
Consider the SF Bay Fog Chaser. It's the best kcup I found where the taste isn't so compromising, and is (supposedly) environmentally friendly!
I used the reusable K-cup thingie in my home Keurig, and it never worked right after that (we ended up replacing it shortly thereafter). I thought it was just bad timing, so I used it in our office one, and we had to buy a new office one then, too. I don't know why, but I had terrible luck with those.
I buy San Francisco Bay K-cups. I first saw them at Costco (which no longer sells them), loved them, and kept buying through Amazon. They are working towards 100% biodegradable packaging. Their K-cups don't have plastic on the bottom (just a plastic ring), and the bags that hold the K-cups I believe are compostable. My favorite flavors are Fog Chaser and French Roast: https://www.amazon.com/San-Francisco-Bay-Coffee-Compatible/dp/B007Y59HVM
FYI, you can buy delicious, cheap, completely biodegradable k cups on Amazon. There are also plenty of recyclable brands out there as well.
And another, even cheaper overall!
That sounds about right for k-cups. That's about 75 cents per cup.
I usually pay between .50 and .60 when I buy k-cups.
You can get them for as cheap as 36 cents each on amazon
Of course, it's still more expensive than grinding and brewing your own coffee (which you can also do anyway with reusable K-Cups), but the convenience factor is what you're paying for.
Get your K-Cups from Amazon, you can get them pretty cheap and in bulk. Personally I like San Francisco Bay Coffee's Fog Chaser blend. Nice bold cup, plus it's fair trade and the k-cup is biodegradable.
HOWEVER, if you still need your K-Cups fix, this is a good deal:
You lucky duck.
I can't be too jealous because I also found a Kuerig at my local Goodwill. It was 12 bucks and pretty much brand new. I think it's the Keurig B40 which only has two cup sizes, which is annoying since they're both small...
The one thing that bugs me about these machines is the fact that they produce so much waste. I ended up getting these K-cups because not only were they the best deal, but they are also bio-degradable. Not only that, it's actually damn good coffee:
I use this one in my smoothies https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Chocolate-Packaging/dp/B00J074W94/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=protein+powder&qid=1562523433&s=gateway&sr=8-5
Peas, chia seeds, and brown rice
you can easily eat a shitton of protein on a vegan diet if you supplement a bit: https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Plant-Based-Chocolate/dp/B00J074W94?ie=UTF8&amp;SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&amp;camp=2025&amp;creative=165953&amp;creativeASIN=B00J074W94&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;psc=1&amp;tag=duckduckgo-d-20
With a little effort you can gain LMM as fast vegan as you can eating animal flesh.
Saying you cannot get enough protein on a vegan diet carries no weight = you just need to learn more.
Source, me: http://i.imgur.com/v7xz95N.jpg
I have faced no challenges other than letting people know you don't need to be anal about macro anything as long as you eat mainly non processed whole grain whole foods low in oils/fats w/ a protein shake or two per day to perform however you want athletically or looks wise
> Vegan protein powder exists although it is more expensive than regular stuff.
I've used both Orgain and Sunwarrior. The Sunwarrior stuff has BCAAs, while Orgain does not. I find both mix up pretty well in smoothies.
Also, for diet stuff, check out the No Meat Athlete. Lots of good recipes and other info.
Question about soy-based protein: I've heard in some circles that any soy-based product that isn't fermented is basically nutritional garbage. I don't know enough to have a strong opinion either way, but my wife and I tend to avoid it when we can (though will happily eat it when eating out).
Once you start making these you'll find what you like/don't like. Start off small with ingredients you trust then work your way into the dark side. If you told me several years ago you drink things that have garlic, broccoli, peas and apples in it, I'd gag. Now, I can't get enough of it.
I don't know if you are into fitness (fitness whole pizza in my mouf!) or just want to be a bit healthier, but either way you will fall in love with this kind of stuff. Specially when you get creative, start making random things and actually notice the difference it makes in everything. I feel more energetic, I am not bogged down or full feeling. If I do feel full, it's light. I wouldn't go for a run after I chug one, but taking a nap is not even near my list of wants after. Without being gross and just blunt, going number 2 is extremely quick, smooth and honestly reassuring your body is liking this (you'll see why).
For protein replacement, I use this: https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Powder-Chocolate/dp/B00J074W94/ref=sr_1_8_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1497277026&amp;sr=8-8&amp;keywords=pea%2Bprotein&amp;th=1
It's light, uses peas/spirulina (more greens!) for it's protein and adds a nice kick when you need it. I usually get the vanilla bean, but chocolate isn't bad. They just added Matcha which might be next for me...
Here's what a typical daily shake looks like this for me, workout or not:
30 seconds of blending and boom, you're set.
Have you tried this stuff? It's what I use. It doesn't blend as well as Whey did, but it's much better than Vega IMO.
salted caramel was the first I've tried. Honestly, it probably is the best out of like 8 different protein powder brands/flavors I've tried, but if you don't have the money, this is probably a lot better.
It's unavailable atm, but it costs less than half of vivolife and tastes about the same (granted it's different flavors).
And the answer to your question: not as good as I expected, but still one of if not the best I've tried.
Orgain protein powder. It's organic and vegan.
I use a variety. I have some unflavored soy protein isolate in bulk that I add a tablespoon to my morning smoothie.
I have Orgain Pea/Brown rice stuff. Its pretty good in all the flavors I've tried so far. https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Chocolate-Packaging/dp/B00J074W94
I also use Hemp: https://www.amazon.com/Manitoba-Harvest-Protein-protein-Serving/dp/B002CPVTH4/
I also eat a lot of nuts and seeds. Hemp seeds are amazing. They make smoothies extra creamy. https://www.amazon.com/Manitoba-Harvest-Shelled-protein-Packaging/dp/B00856TSCC/
Start goin to the gym and drink this after, maybe mix in some fruit as well. And snack on peanut butter. Each spoonful is almost 100 calories.
This works for me: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J074W94/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&amp;th=1
And you can try almond milk instead of dairy.
Add a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter, a banana, and, for an extra 240 calorie kick, 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) of olive oil.
The Orgain Organic protein is dairy free and is probably one of the best vegan proteins I've had.
You can pick it up at your local Costco or Sam's club.

Actually it looks like it may be available again: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M2OGS08
Step your game up to Surge.
Only available on Amazon.com
Currently in stock!
Thanks for reminding me. It's back in stock!
It's back in stock! Gogogogogo!
Yup! Order some here!
Your wish has been granted
May be easiest to look up the Surge Movement on Facebook, but basically they have persuaded Coca-Cola to make Surge again and currently it is in a "testing" phase where it is being sold on Amazon here. Don't worry, it IS NOT $80-100, there are just some assholes buying cases and reselling it for much more. It is simply out of stock right now, and regularly sells for $14 for a 12 pack of 16oz cans (from Coke themselves). We are happy (the Surge Movement) because it has been in stock twice and it sold out within 2 hours both times because we all love Surge so much. Hopefully Coke brings it back for good!!
You can buy it on Amazon
Also, this: http://youtu.be/MoIrYC7pbnE
Then whatever you do don't click this link
how about Surge Energy and Pringles
They've been back for a while.
yes, they make it again buy you can only get it through amazon. i assume its what was in the amazon box

In that case I use Muscle Milk vanilla. They also have chocolate. I get it cheap at Costco. I put it in my smoothies with fruit/greek yogurt.
I do NOT recommend this stuff. Also at Costco. Does not taste good when mixed in a smoothie.
I'm definitely happy that we have so many options nowadays and that there are so many companies that are creating Vegan products.
Really depends on what you're looking for though. Customization is certainly great, but Vega really shines when it comes to creating high-quality innovative products that are formulated with performance, flavor, and whole food ingredients in mind that I actually trust to put into my body. For the most part their products are not supplements, but whole food powders (no synthesized vitamins and mineral blends that come from a lab, amino acid blends, enzyme derivatives etc. but rather non-GMO powdered food ingredients like greens, spirulina, marine algae calcium, acacia gum, real fruits and veggies, etc.). Price-wise there is really a range now too, Protein & Greens is available on Amazon for about $17/lb, and has 20g of protein and 3 servings of greens in a scoop.
I rotate between four different protein powders, all are vegan and are sourced from multiple sources (mostly pea, flax, and hemp protein).
My favorite taste wise is the Vega Protein and Greens.
Also from Vega, the Sport Protein is nice, as it has 30 grams of protein per serving vs the 20 per serving in the protein and greens. However, Vega changed the recipe for the Sport a few months ago, and now it makes a super thick drink, almost akin to drinking cake batter. I have to split up the serving just so the drink doesn't become too thick.
The Garden of Life Sport Protein also has 30 grams of protein per serving, and isn't as thick as the Vega Sport, but I think it doesn't taste quite as good as the Vega branded stuff. Not bad though.
Lastly, I'll occasionally buy Orgain as it is the cheapest typically, though it has a somewhat grainy texture compared to the others.
I usually just buy whatever of the four are on sale at my local Co-Op, but if you're going to go with one, I'd recommend the Vega Protein and Greens if you're ok with only 20 grams of protein per serving.
Edit: oh didn't realize you have already had the protein and greens, maybe try the Vega Sport? Also, I buy all four exclusively in vanilla, so I can't speak for the other flavors.
For my thai tea I use this https://www.amazon.com/Thai-Iced-Traditional-Restaurant-Style/dp/B00NJS4S6C/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=grocery&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1495113730&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=thai+tea
No need for the evaporated milk, I just brew then pour over ice. Top with HWC and a liquid sugar free sweetener. One cup will come out to be 4.5 grams of net carb. Could be less depending on how much tea you brew. :) In my opinion this tea taste much better than black tea.
I add this tea mixture to water (1 cup of tea mixture to 4 cups of water, plus 3/4 cup sugar if you like it sweeter) in a French press. Let it steep for 30-60 minutes (the longer you let it steep, the stronger the flavor). I "press" out the tea leaves, then put the mixture in the fridge to let it cool. Add half & half (or basically any kind of milk you want--coconut milk is also good) until it's the color you want. Delicious and saves me lots of money to make it at home!
FYI, this is the brand that a lot of restaurants use, and then add evaporated milk. Be sure to get a "tea sock" or you'll end up with leaves in your finished tea, no matter how many times you strain it.
I buy this 2 pack from Amazon all the time. Good price and great tea https://www.amazon.com/Thai-Iced-Traditional-Restaurant-Style/dp/B00NJS4S6C/ref=pd_sim_325_4?_encoding=UTF8&amp;pd_rd_i=B00NJS4S6C&amp;pd_rd_r=K0JZZPA87DJVCRDSEE61&amp;pd_rd_w=IY2jW&amp;pd_rd_wg=oQvFf&amp;psc=1&amp;refRID=K0JZZPA87DJVCRDSEE61
You can buy surge again.
While you're there, get Surge on Amazon.
I love Orange Dry. For the uninformed, I would describe it on a spectrum as Orange Juice -> Orangina -> Orange Dry -> Sunkist. Less pulp and more soft drink-like as you move left to right.
Also a PSA to my fellow 90s kids: you can buy Surge from amazon. Just saying.
Last night. You can order Surge from Amazon!
Here it says 56g
Edit: Sorry. This is wrong. This is for 16oz
They are still on sale for $14 for 12 16oz cans. HERE
edit: It's only for prime members, but you can get a free 30 day trial.
It's been back for like three years now. Check yourself
Have you tried Surge? It's pretty dang close.
You can pick some up on Amazon but they had it at gas stations for a limited time in the US this summer. It is also under the name Urge in other countries.
Yep, but it's only available for Prime Pantry at the moment. Used to be available for all, so most are protesting by not buying it until they switch it back.
However, it's available at convenience stores throughout the Southeastern United States so you can check surge.com for locations.
I got curious, and yup... they are on Amazon.
SURGE, 12 ct, 16 FL OZ Cans
Trying to decide if I want to risk ruining the memory with the reality.
Amazon sells it now. I think some stores sell it as well.
If you had time to plan I would recommend a case of Surge and a 4 pack of Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili
Otherwise, I'm a big fan of Mountain Dew and Spicy Nacho Doritos.
Do you happen to have a Trader Joe's near you?
They did and it ran out quick. It's just a rebranded jones blue raspberry lemonade as far as I know, which I've had and is pretty good.
Yeah pretty much what everyone else has been saying. I would recommend a doctor. One thing you might be able to do is try to get her to drink Soylent. It's used a lot here to introduce a complete diet in a case where otherwise someone is eating a limited group of foods. I think it could be good for your sister because each small bottle has 400 calories. It might be useful for slowing down her weight loss due to how calorie hence each bottle is. The "original" flavor tastes like nothingness or they also have flavored versions such as chocolate. Some of those bolthouse farms drinks are really calorie dense too. It may be a way for her to "trick" her mind into feeling like she still isn't eating a lot while still ingesting a lot of calories. If it's orthorexia rather than anorexia she should be happy too because the Soylent bottles only have exactly what the body needs. Five bottles and she would be getting 2000 calories and all her micro and macronutrients. I looked at a calorie calculator and if you can get her at anything over 1,422 she should stop losing weight. 2000 calories a day would be getting her about 1 lb per week back until she starts reaching a more healthy weight. As a heads up given her measurements she has a BMI of 14.64. Anything below 16 is the lowest category which is severe thinness. That's pretty dire medically. I would force her to go to a doctor whether she likes it or not.
>I dont think they believed me when I said I get almost everything non-food related through Amazon.
You can fix that: https://www.amazon.com/Soylent-Ready-Drink-Food-Bottles/dp/B01EUEIL3E
Amazon has their 35% off Coupon back up for all flavors with Subscribe & Save. 1st order only.
Also since you are a new subscriber, if you want to get a 15% discount check out the Subscribe and Save option from Amazon. Ordering at least 5 boxes will get you 15% off and you can always change your qty (minimum 5 at a time for 15%), cancel or push off months at-will.
You could try adding Soylent or an equivalent nutrient drink to your diet. It's not super filling and one bottle adds another 400 calories to your diet. Drink 2 in one day along with eating and you should be able to start seeing some progress.
I doubt you're missing anything. The eBay dude probably buys the patches straight from the SpaceX store, and sells them on eBay for a nice markup.
We see the same thing in /r/soylent. Soylent is a meal in a bottle shake that sells direct from the manufacturer (or from Amazon) for about $34 per case of 12 bottles. People still resell it for $22 for 3 bottles. Note that on that second link, the product isn't sold by Amazon, it's sold by a 3rd party. The 3rd party just orders the first link, splits the 12-bottle case up into 4x 3-bottle packs, and sells the 3-packs individually, making $54 for each case they split and resell.
I have no idea why anyone would buy 3 bottles for $22 when you can buy 12 bottles for $34, but apparently some people do.
Go ahead and try it:
Soylent Meal Replacement Drink, Original, 14 oz Bottles, 12 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EUEIL3E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_VmuPybQ95ES5E
> I wasn’t even being adventurous in my fast food meal, I just liked that it was convenient and I knew what I was getting.
Have you looked into meal replacement drinks? I replace one meal a day with soylent for this reason. It costs about $3, fits into my diet nicely, and takes literally zero effort. There are things I could be doing that would be more healthy, but... they might cost more, be less delicious, or be less convenient. And I have an easy time sticking to a plan if it's this convenient.
They sure do
I tried a case and did not like it.
Maybe this link will work: https://www.amazon.com/Soylent-Meal-Replacement-Drink-Original/product-reviews/B01EUEIL3E/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewpnt_rgt?ie=UTF8&amp;reviewerType=avp_only_reviews&amp;pageNumber=1&amp;filterByKeyword=nectar&amp;filterByStar=critical
Hopefully I didn't just give you my Amazon password or something.
My experience is similar - it tastes a little bit like some kind of lemon-infused detergent.
Sorry, Bad link:
Should I resubmit the post?
Here is the link. It looks like it's sold out right now, but it was also sold out a few minutes before I bought it. I was hitting refresh like a mad man waiting for concert ticket links to go live. Best of luck!
I've seen it at a few shaws, but like anything you can get it on amazon with prime shipping.
Still in stock
I've just started mixing Soylent with coffee for breakfast when I get up, the when I feel like it during the day at work. It's basically a hyper-nutritious mocha at that point that gives me everything I need.
Now I'll periodically make delicious complicated dishes when I feel like it, but the complete freedom to not have to really helps.
Sounds good, thanks!!
So is this a good start?
Just want to make sure I’m ordering the right thing.

it usually sells out pretty quick on amazon.
not really sold out but it looks like they make you signup for prime in order to buy it
Well Amazon initially was just selling it straight up for $14 for 12, and I bought a case then. Now they've moved it to Amazon Pantry where it's still only $14 for a 12 pack, but because it's in Pantry you have to order a bunch of other crap from them too.
I'd love to buy it again, but I'm with you... I'm not paying $40 to a reseller on Amazon for it.

When I am trying to gain weight I use a nutrient shake called Soylent. It has 400 kcal per bottle and all an appropriate amount of all essential nutrients per calorie. I usually drink 2 bottles per day to add extra calories to my diet. However, in your situation you could add as many as you need. You can usually get 12-packs delivered with next day delivery on Amazon if you have a Prime account: https://www.amazon.com/Soylent-Replacement-Drink-Original-Bottles/dp/B01EUEIL3E
Also, they have flavored versions, but I honestly think the original flavor is the best for general use. Maybe cocoa flavored one on rare occasions. Nectar flavor is awful.
Check out [Soylent](Soylent Meal Replacement Drink, Original, 14 oz Bottles, 12 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EUEIL3E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_SDgQybNFG0JZX). Its designed to completely replace food if you want or need it to. It has all the nutrients and vitamins an average person needs, with 400 calories in a bottle. Buying a 12 pack from amazon works out to less than $3 per bottle, and a 2000 calorie diet will put you at 5 bottles per day, for a grand total of less than$15 per day.
The taste is pretty bland (lots of people describe it as the milk left over after eating cheerios), but works great as a base for smoothies. Personally, I use Mio "water enhancers" to flavor it, and those work great too.
Neither Soylent nor Mio require refrigeration. But I will say that Soylent tastes a lot better cold, so maybe pour it into a glass with ice or save up for a mini fridge if using your parents' isn't an option.
Soylent is taken
I have started drinking Soylent for breakfast, one or two for lunch and then eating a healthy dinner. Soylent has everything I need nutrition-wise, is quick and easy and is portable (in pre-mixed form anyway).
As far as fruit, I have two of the small sugar free cups of fruit that come in the little plastic cups. I don't have the time or energy for fresh fruit. I add a couple drops of liquid sucralose (Splenda) and it's a great, sweet snack before bed.
I drink Soylent Bottles
Tastes kinda like the after milk from Cheerios sorta but bland. I mix mine with chocolate syrup sometimes.
I think smoothies in general might be a good option also but my blender sucks so I don’t do that yet.
So, how many of you have tried this meal replacement drink called Soylent https://www.amazon.com/Soylent-Replacement-Drink-Original-Bottles/dp/B01EUEIL3E
Just tried it a while ago and CaoCao was pretty good
Purchased a case for next weekend at a con. Not going to have time to eat anyway.

I recommend getting a box or two of Soylent and taking it with you in checked luggage. I'll take a box of coffee and a box of chocolate and then go out to eat once or twice to break monotony. Breaks down to ~$3 a meal for breakfast/lunch/dinner/as often as you can tolerate them.
This may seem like an odd suggestion, but you might want to give Soylent a try. The Cocao and Coffiest flavors are good. Stay away from the Regular and Nectar flavors though. Also keep in mind the Coffiest flavor has the same dose of caffeine as a cup of coffee.
They are about $3.25 a bottle, and each bottle is 1/5 of your daily calories and nutritional needs (400 calories and 20% of every vitamin you can imagine). The wife and I drink one for breakfast and then have a regular lunch. If we can't figure out anything good for dinner we have another.
They don't require refrigeration and keep for a year. Pretty ideal for when you are on a long haul for weeks at a time. They beat the hell of out fast food, that for sure.
With the subscribe option, I can save 15% off the ~$60 CAD price tag, which works out to cheaper than from the Soylent website after the abysmal exchange rate we deal with right now, bringing the price to around $50, and Amazon magically doesn't tack on any tax. Throw prime into the mix, and I'm not entirely dissatisfied.
In light of recent revelations, I noticed that the packaging of Soylent Drink had been changed on the shipment that I received yesterday. The Nutrition Facts side is a large sticker, not sure if it was to cover incorrect information or what.
Original Coffiest, all three regular soylent flavours, and powder is available on Amazon Canada with subscribe and save too
I would suggest Zoloft but not at her age. Maybe kava tea at night? Lack of sleep is a big reason I had anxiety at that age. You can get Kava tea from Target, Whole Foods and Amazon. I use this one, it's very mild but helps a lot
Kava Stress Relief Tea. This stuff is awesome. I drink a cup with two bags and find it really helps when the anxiety kicks in. Also the act of prepping/making the tea is a nice ritual of sorts.
As an aside, i loathe chamomile and am likely allergic to it anyway, so i steer clear.
Came to post tea, was not disappointed.
I've fallen in love with this tea in particular:
Yogi Kava Stress Relief
Subtle calming effect, not to the point of being anywhere close to a 'buzz' or intoxication, but I've found its a perfect way to wind down at night. Even just the ritual of making it and then patiently waiting for it to cool as it gives off its sweet aroma is usually enough to start calming me down.
If you're struggling to get 8 hours a night, you can focus on deepening the sleep you do get instead of sleeping longer.
Source: neuroscientist who focused on psychopharmacology and sleep when I was getting my degree.
Yummy herbal flavor, slight relaxing effect. I like this one
Holy shit, Kava and Kratom are grouped with coke, heroin and pcp. What the fuck were they smoking when they grouped them together?
I am sorry everyone, I have a confession, I've been getting high on this tea I buy from Amazon, I am literally a junkie. amazon.com/Yogi-Herbal-Kava-Stress-Relief/dp/B0009F3QKW
I HIGHLY recommend Kava Tea. It is a stress relief tea made from organic herbs that yogis use to help meditate. I quit 5 days ago and have been drinking 3 cups a day and it feels as though the anxiety just disappears. I had a panic attack the day I quit and punched a mirror so hard I broke my knuckles. The counselor at the crisis center suggested the tea and it is a miracle. If you are running out of hope like I was, just give it a try. It has relaxed me as much as weed did. Except you don't turn into a zombie like with weed. DONT GIVE UP. The anxiety is coming from your own thoughts. You WILL get though this and we are all here to help.
My daily electrolyte supplements usually look like this:
The rest of my electrolytes come from food. If I still feel unwell after the above, I may drink another ElectroMix. This seems to be working well for managing my induction.
Remember: Spinach is a good source of potassium and other healthy nutrients. It never hurts to mix it into whatever you're making or have a side salad with some olive oil.
Best of luck to you and KCKO! :)
I use PowerAde Zero and this stuff : ElectroMIX.
I am still trying to get the fiber part in check, but have found this to be the best sugar free electrolyte supplement out there.
These are what I take:
I went with something like this
But it doesn't have sodium
Interesting theory, but I've never heard of brewing tea that way. I found the brand I drink on amazon. 100% Japanese tea and it doesn't recommend throwing away the first brew.
I hate bags, but one of the better bagged greens from a grocery store I've had is Costco's Kirkland Green tea with sencha and matcha. It is by Ito En, which is a good tea seller that does matcha/greens pretty good. FYI, this has matcha so the caffeine will be high.
If you don't have a costco, you can buy online. https://www.amazon.com/Kirkland-Matcha-Blend-Japanese-Tea-100/dp/B000WB1YSE
If you can find Harney & Sons in store, they have good teas too and come in bagged form.
edit: since you are new. Refer to the side bar for temperatures. Green tea needs to be done at a lower temperature or it'll be a bitter mess.
I'm probably not as much of a tea expert as the rest of the guys and gals here but I have this green matcha tea I bought from costco and it tastes good enough to me.
Comes in a huge package of 100 and isn't too expensive at about ~$0.20/bag.
This is tea with matcha however. I'm not sure if that is the same as just matcha.
ok, I'll look into that one. I was also looking at this one -http://www.amazon.com/Kirkland-Signature-Matcha-Blend-Japanese/dp/B000WB1YSE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1417670024&amp;sr=8-2&amp;keywords=green+tea - what do you think?
why drink tea if you can't stand it? i like coffee a lot, i just prefer ice cold tea.
while others may post exotic tea ideas, i'll stick with the tried and true just to get you started;
it's ok to garnish your tea with citrus juice or milk, sweeten with sugars or honey.
variety packs are fun to sample, just keep in mind they may not be different teas,
just various fruits|spices used to flavor them, kinda like flavored coffee creamers.
> Costco green tea
Hmm, I guess I need to give it a try. Any specific brand you'd recommend? I noticed this was the best reviewed brand on Amazon:
Hello again! Got your PM. Would you like to try any or all of these teas? I can pack small quantities (such as 10-15g samples) or larger amounts, whatever is your preference.
If you would like to pay WAY to much for it, you can get it online. ex.
Available on Amazon at an inflated price.
For all those wondering where we can find it...
Manufacturer Website: http://leninade.realsoda.com/
I should probably just make it myself
Amazon leninade https://www.amazon.com/ask/questions/asin/B001IVVL94/ref=ask_mdp_dpmw_ql_hza?isAnswered=true
I love this soda, but even a twelve pack is so expensive it is an insanely rare treat to myself
Really, on a Monday?
They did, but it's made by the third reich.
Not see cola
They also drink Not See Cola. On a side note it tastes exactley like crystal pepsi.
Crystal Pepsi? That's not 1996 that's 1992.
And if you want Crystal Pepsi that bad, you can get it under a different label. The Cinema Snob reviewed it on one of his food shows (yes, he does food stuff too) and said it tasted exactly how he remembered Crystal Pepsi tasting.
Hvis man har været villig til at lede grundigt nok, har man da kunnet få klar cola mange steder fra. F.eks. "Not See Cola". Fra firmaet, der også lavede Leninade. De har åbenbart specialiseret sig i sodavand med diktaturtema?!
PS: apropos klare/hvide ting: "Remember it like racism: White is right!"
completely relevant: Not See Cola
The same brand sells/sold an even less tasteful flavor as well.
If they don't end up putting this out on the market, you can always buy some Not See Cola from Amazon. It's apparently just like Crystal Pepsi.
You are! Energy drinks are slightly more high-power caffeinated beverages. Two cans of Coca-Cola will set you back about a dollar and will have more caffeine than one 2-3 dollar Red Bull.
All that other crap in them - especially B vitamins - is not actually useful for energy (unless you like a niacin flush... in which case, do you, I guess) and just make them look more special.
Or there's coffee at the cost of pennies on the dollar, and cheap enhancements like Stok to boost it even more. Or caffeine tabs like No-Doz, which are dirt cheap. Energy drinks are very expensive for what you get.
Unfortunately, I really like how Red Bull tastes (although the international version is better)... so I actually do buy it sometimes.
264 count for $23
Here you go good reddit sir [or madame o_o;]
My local circle K has em by the coffee creamer cups. Here's a link for 264 count for $32:
40mg caffeine per little container and its coffee flavored! Half off if you're a prime member here
If you're in a hurry try these instead of coffee SToK Caffeinated Black Coffee Shots, 264-Count Single-Serve Packages https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00284TTG2/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_-Sstub10M5NSX
These are pretty nice for a quick caffeine fix. I throw 1-2 into my tea or coffee in the mornings. I even drink them straight sometimes but that's a bit nasty.
I drink 4-8 cups of coffee with a few Stok shots thrown in throughout the day depending on his bad I'm dragging. Plus 2-3 Sugar Free Rockstars a day. I have a really high caffeine tolerance.
Only 264 packs available now. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00284TTG2/
I'm just going to leave this riiiiggght here....
What about just mixing in espresso powder? Flavor, caffeine, basically no extra calories?
I wish I was a wizard! I just started experimenting by always making a second batch and adding different things. Oh, I forgot to say with the tiramisu-type ones: add a dash of almond extract.
Some things I've found to be good in 'mallows:
Dehydrated berries, crushed into powder.
Peppermint extract (with or without adding cocoa powder)
Vanilla bean paste - this has become my standby recipe, sometimes dusted with crushed candy canes.
*Matcha, though I'm still trying to get the balance right for that nice, creamy green tea flavor.
Your marshmallows look gorgeous, by the way!
1 - There's really no need to rinse. Swishing the cage and grains around in the milk of a new batch should be sufficient.
2 - If it works for you, there's nothing wrong with it. I like it to ferment 24 hours, that way I only have to take care of it once a day, and so I don't overproduce and waste milk. Simply reduce the amount of grains you're using for it to take longer.
3 - I'm also on a ketogenic diet. There's really no way of knowing the carbohydrate content of homemade kefir, so I calculate it the same as commercially-produced kefir, about 6g carbs per 1/2 cup (118 ml).
Once I see pockets of whey in the curd (before it becomes fully separated), I remove the grains and let it continue to ferment (secondary fermentation) another 24 hours. At that point it's usually separated, so I just stir it together and refrigerate it. I figure this way I'm reducing the carb content as much as possible. I also only drink 1/2 a cup of kefir a day (1/4 cup morning and night)... I make it in a 2 oz instant espresso jar.
No, it's a different thing. Here it is: instant expresso powder
When I make my chocolate cake, I mix cocoa powder and instant expresso powder in a bowl and then add boiling water and mix. Then I let it cool and add buttermilk and vanilla extract and those are my wet ingredients (that I then mix with the butter, sugar, eggs, and dry ingredients).
While not a true Camellia Sinensis, guayusa is a great caffeinated holly tea native to Ecuador with natural sweetness. You can check it out here and here. Yaupon holly, a sister plant to guayusa, is also a naturally sweet caffeinated holly native to Southeast North America.
Anyone that likes Mate should also give guayusa a try. Personally I like how mate feels but not the way it tastes. Guayusa feels very similar but it tastes amazing. I believe they are very similar plants but guayusa is not at all bitter.
You can buy it from Amazon or Harney and Sons.
A little more information.
heres a link to wikipedia page about it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilex_guayusa
Yes!! I completely agree. Just started drinking this stuff in the morning: http://www.amazon.com/Runa-Amazon-Guayusa-Traditional-Tea/dp/B004FSASKU and surprisingly I have really quickly cut my caffeine consumption down to 1-2 teas a day instead of 200-400mg caffeine. Really digging it.
Also in regards to Lions Mane, I have looked into that and would like to try it but have held off since mushroom powders are so expensive (and it feels very important to me to get organic, quality powder). Currently planning on switching to this stuff once my reishi runs out http://www.mushroomharvest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=39&amp;products_id=201 .
I also use Guayusa - typically mix it with black tea. Extremely inexpensive - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004FSASKU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
You can buy a 6 pack from amazon for what works out to a more reasonable $2.59 a bottle.
Use the search term "Irn Bru near me" on google. It will show locations that stock it on Maps.
Apparently they're about fifteen dollars for a pack of six, so that's pretty nuts.
[GET IN MY BELLY] (http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj272/bill7101/birdy.jpg)
As a Scottish-Canadian, I may be obligated to recommend [Irn Bru] (http://www.thescottishgrocer.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/5/0/500mlirnbru.jpg), a 17oz bottle of which is usually about $5.00 US. You can also [get one on Amazon] (http://www.amazon.com/Barrs-Irn-Bru-16-9-Ounce-Pack-6/dp/B004VD6S8K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1417407234&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=irn+bru), of which a pack of 6 is about $18.00.
It's a delicious Scottish soft drink (a bit soda-y, a bit chemical-y) that was sort of outlawed in places in Canada for awhile for having some ingredients that weren't approved for consumption here. Kinda badass.
Linking [this] (http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00LMEIWQC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&amp;colid=208VAYF3DZF52&amp;coliid=I2KJ3O2CH6J41V) cool necklace that only comes to $4.00 CDN after shipping so you can gift someone else too. Thanks for the contest! :)
Here you go:
No Tennent's though, sorry.
For anyone that wants Irn-Bru in the states, Amazon does sell it now.
I've read on Reddit that the ingredients are slightly different, but I'd been buying them from an import shop and other than the fact that these are bottled, not canned, I don't notice a difference.
Alternatively, you can check the Irn Bru website for US distributors if you just want one to try. There aren't that many locations yet though unfortunately.
Can buy it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Barrs-Irn-Bru-16-9-Ounce-Pack-6/dp/B004VD6S8K/ref=pd_sim_sbs_gro_1
Could be different, I am not sure. I could only find it online though. This is what I ordered: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004VD6S8K
And I'm 100% serious, the taste is like watered down cream soda.
Is this the right one? I'd like to order some...
You definitely need this. I know I do ;)
Today I'm studying, then off to work 9-5 (where I hopefully can get a lot done in between meetings), then home to make dinner, then more studying, then watching GoT, then sleep! :D
Who needs revision?!
We got it on Amazon. It is really good coffee.
I have no clue what you've tried, and I'm no coffee connoisseur so I can only think of a few. Everyone around here seems to love Death Wish coffee, and a good chocolate coffee I like is Gevalia's Chocolate Mocha. :)
I agree on the body weight thing, helps quite a bit. Lately I've been using pre-ground (Deathwish). I don't have a grinder yet since I'm kinda between living situations (live with parents, very little room for my stuff as it is). But once I have more space I'll be moving on to whole-bean, fresh-grind.
Get some of this:
So 1 pound of deathwish is $19.99. You'd bet you would save money buying in bulk, like say two pounds. ^(Nope it's $86.74)
5 pounds is $80.00
If you want a strong coffee here you go I've heard nothing but good things about it, and they're local to me. They're even collaborating with some local craft beer makers. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Edit: NVM, I see you have it on your wish list already.
Here ya go!
Speaking of expensive coffee. But impressive caffeine amount.
Here's the link for it if you were wondering:

Can't we send dronpes a coffee?
this kind of coffee:
He won't be needed to sleep for the next 2 days after that.
So...Percoloco won. I'm giving it to you because you inspired it!
Please add the 1-lb package of Deathwish Coffee to your wishlist!
Death Wish coffee and a French press.
A fun t-shirt
DVD/Blu-rays like Dr. Who or Game of Thrones.
You can buy it on amazon, with prime shipping.
My good news is that today I ran the numbers and my fundraising committee raised $21,435 for a local Special Olympics competition, the largest student run one in the world! Our group raised twice as much as last year and it means we can make this years twice as good!
Edit: If I win, without being selfish, is Death Wish Coffee to get me to winter break and finals!
EDIT: Also, congrats on the job! What kind of writing is your favorite?
Fuck that I refuse to degrade myself because there's sub-par coffee.
nearly guilt free K Cup
The resin that green mountain uses in their cartridges isn't recyclable or biodegradable.
These are and they're a lot cheaper. If you use a keurig 2.0 you may need a clip to bypass the DRM.
If you want to go keurig again (I know you are looking for alternatives) look into these cups http://www.amazon.com/San-Francisco-Bay-Coffee-80-Count/dp/B007Y59HVM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1375745311&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=san+francisco+bay+k+cups The fog chaser and breakfast blend are pretty good. They are cheaper and there is less plastic waste. That or get the brew basket that you can use your own grind in. I do a combo of the two.
Yea they did. I got a mesh k cup with my keurig as a gift and it won't brew. That was actually the reason I wanted one. Now it barely gets used. I did find some degradeable cups http://www.amazon.com/San-Francisco-Bay-OneCup-Coffees/dp/B007Y59HVM They send you a thin plastic container with the order to store the cups in. They come in biodegradable bags as well. Plus the coffee is pretty good 8)
OMG. They exist. Which is why articles like this piss me off so much. Why won't anyone provide a solution instead guilt trips? Try this:
These are BIODEGRADABLE, CHEAPER, and actually TASTE BETTER.
You can buy recyclable ones.
I just bought these for the first time since I'm sick of cleaning the reusable and refillable cups. They're cheap and better for the environment, but I bought the Keurig for convenience. So what I just bought is good. Supposedly only the foil lid isn't compassable.
Anyone with a Keurig, buy San Francisco Bay K cups. They're made from organic materials and are biodegradable. Good coffee too.
Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Creamy Chocolate Fudge - Vegan, Low Net Carbs, Non Dairy, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, No Sugar Added, Soy Free, Kosher, Non-GMO, 2.03 Pound https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J074W94/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_mjEpDbK81PVQC
That one and the one in vanilla. Vanilla for the mentioned
Vegan athlete here who bikes, runs, rock climbs, and lifts. I get about 90-100 grams of protein a day (I'm also very small) and it's not hard.
There's a ton of brands that make plant based protein powders instead of whey. Vega is a very common one, but the consistency is a little thick. Orgain protein powder is tasty but doesn't have the best protein to carb ratio for my macros. I'm currently working through the Kaizen vanilla vegan protein powder which is 140 calories a scoop and 25g of protein I think. I also have a ride based protein powder that's 110 calories a scoop with 31g of protein but does need to be mixed with some fruit to make it taste good. Also make sure to mix your drinks with plant/nut milks for a better taste. You can buy large bags of protein powder off myprotein and there's a few vegan options. A lot of these protein powders list amino acid ratios on the tub and all of them are fairly decent. I've used a variety of brands and they've all done the trick.
I drink a lot of cashew and soy milk (2-3 cups a day, mostly cashew milk) so I tend to get my calcium and what not from that. I also take a daily vegan multivitamin, but you only really need to suppliment B12. I've also always taken a D3 suppliment in the winter for emotional support and there's even vegan versions of that just make sure it's from lichen sources.
It can be hard getting in omega-3s but luckily there's lots of options. One option is Gardein fishless fish which is fortified with an algae based omega blend. Another option is adding ground flax or chia seeds to a protein shake. There's also hemp seeds which not only have omega fatty acids but also have a decent amount of protein.
I get my iron from leafy greens. I like making green smoothies with lots of spinach and some berries for vitamin c to boost absorption. I track my intake daily with myfitnesspal and tend to meet my iron goals, if not go over them. Lots of greens in general have iron, even broccoli which is fantastic roasted with a little nutritional yeast. You can also get iron from beans.
This is what I use https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Chocolate-Packaging/dp/B00J074W94/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1524531519&amp;sr=8-1-spons&amp;keywords=orgain+organic+protein+powder&amp;psc=1

Orgain's creamy chocolate is pretty damn good and very close to ON.
This stuff is vegan, it's great:
Orgain Chocolate Fudge
Found it. I little cheaper if you subscribe.
Chocolate flavor, all plant based protein, lactose/dairy free. $22 with prime for 2lbs.
My wife got this, tastes pretty good: Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Creamy Chocolate Fudge, 2.03 Pound, 1 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J074W94/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_2JkDzbDGZ29J8
I use this with almond milk, lactose free and tastes great!
Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Creamy Chocolate Fudge
Not to be "that guy" but buy this stuff instead. Good protein sources, FDA approved, solid amino's in it. It also tastes bomb and is fairly cheap for a vegan protein.
I'm not sure if this would be what you're looking for, but you could try using a plant based protein powder like this and making a smoothie with it. Add peanut butter for more protein, as well as bananas, frozen fruit, or whatever you like with some dairy free milk of your choice.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J074W94/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;th=1 This is the stuff I get. I hated whey protein, it never quite sat right in my stomach. With this stuff I can drink a shake and go for a run without getting an upset stomach. The taste is better too I think.
loving this plant based organic protein powder right now. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J074W94?psc=1&amp;redirect=true&amp;ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
I checked on Amazon. They want $170 for 24 of these. That's $7 a bottle.
It's already sold out: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M2OGS08
When they link to the mobile version of the site, yeah.
Here's the non-mobile version
The price is all kinds of wrong. $14.99 for a 12 pack of a soda I last bought just 7 years ago. It just hasn't been long enough. This isn't exactly Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator here, I'll pass.
How much did it cost you OP? I was considering buying some myself when I heard about the Amazon deal but it's all sold out and no price is listed.
Naw I'm pretty sure it's Surge
Shits already sold out, TAKE THAT EBOLA! MURICA!

This really isn't a 2011 Boston Red Sox thing. This is a: They were out of their minds on the field. It was just time to come back down to earth. Frankly, I think there is enough in the tank to resurge for the playoffs. And I hope the A's do. It was phenomenal to watch your team for a while.
they sell them on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Surge-Citrus-Flavored-Soda-16fl/dp/B00M2OGS08/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1466816200&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=surge
Amazon is your friend.
You can still buy them
They Sell the Pepsi version on Amazon
Linky EDIT Apparently they took the product off the site.
You can also get Coke life on there from a different seller.
Don't forget SURGE! for when you want the opposite of a lower calorie cola!
Here you go.
Gonna use this to wash it down with:
The lava sauce from taco bell
EDIT: Does anyone here remember the soda "Surge"? The Coca-Cola Company brought it back on September 15, 2014. It's being sold on Amazon by 12 packs of 16oz cans.
We both need and want Surge so that we can travel back in time to the mid-90's through our tastebuds.
And anyone else who wants the link.
They are only about 1.20 per can when they are in stock on amazon.
When prices are above 14$, they are scalpers.
Get it while it lasts, surge link, so you can buy it. Selfish OP :*(
Yes, but it sells out often and fast: http://smile.amazon.com/SURGE-12-16-FL-Cans/dp/B00M2OGS08/
Are those the $54 12 packs??? lol I want to get one so bad but I don't know if i can spend that much on nostalgia. in case anyone wants one
Yep, only through amazon currently though. The official price is $14 per 12 pk.
Follow Surge on Twitter, or The Surge Movement on Facebook to find out when it will be restocked.
Emphasis on the kind of.
As per the rules, the link to purchase it is here, in a comment.
EDIT: Aaaaand it's $80 again. Hope some of you guys got it before the price shot up!
This is for you.
hurry its there now
SURGE, 12 ct, 16 FL OZ Cans https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M2OGS08/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_D.ywub1QWAKPJ
Buy it here..expensive as FUCK!
Buy some right now... http://www.amazon.com/SURGE-12-16-FL-Cans/dp/B00M2OGS08
Feed the rush, my man
From Amazon only :(
Surge is 50 friggin dollars on Amazon.
They're an Amazon exclusive.
Right now they're out (gougers moving in on the market), but when they're in stock, it's $14 for a flat of 12 cans (16oz) with free Prime shipping.
You have to get it when Amazon themselves restock, then it'll be the $14/case. Currently, the page for Surge lists a price of $44.44 sold by CLEAR VIEW MOVIES, whoever that is....
Edited because I used the wrong Amazon page for Surge...
Im going to celebrate with a chalice of the finest ceremonial libations.
Back on sale on Amazon.
[Here you go!] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00M2OGS08?pc_redir=1410686619&amp;robot_redir=1)
Look up The Surge Movement on Facebook. I was one of the people from the start that tried to get this thing off the ground. Coca-Cola restocks Amazon every few days as of now. It's $14 for a case of 12 cans (16oz.). The price will drop if and when Coke mass produces again. They are looking to see what the demand is on Amazon as of now with a limited supply. Every time it's gone up on Amazon, it's sold out within minutes or hours. eBay and Amazon secondhand sellers have fetched over $400 for a case in this past week that it's been back. But just wait until Amazon has it in stock. I bought 5 cases at $14 each (the official price as of now).
link to the item (didn't show up in search results for some reason, but this link goes straight to the surge). it's still in stock as of now, but it's already sold clean out at least once since they added it to amazon
Was able to snag some off of Amazon (before it got expensive)
Bitch, we drink surge.
P.S. It's normally not that expensive. Coke sold out so it's just people selling the cases they bought for more.
Maybe he bought a case of it off Amazon, like I did.... http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00M2OGS08/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&amp;condition=new

How did you get it?
The only ones I seen on Amazon are $294:
Yes, 3FUEL is expensive. Grass fed whey protein hydrolysate (cost driver), MCT's from coconut milk. A good balance of macro nutrients, with minimal sugar - at a premium price. "Balance" being based on Zone 40/30/30 Diet. (9g carb, 7g protein, 1.5g fat = 1 block)

Most on here will tell you True Nutrition. Which, I can agree on some points. However, most of their products are sweetened by Sucralose (secret word for Splenda). I usually like close to 2lbs of powder. Which, could put you around $20 but in the US shipping and handling can run you to around $27.
I like this one:
with PRIME shipping is free. It tastes very good and it's sweetened by stevia which is a better alternative than sucralose.
Here it is. They also failed to mention that it's Prime exclusive.
Hi! I also use Vega some of the time to cut down on my dairy intake. Vegan protein powder has a gritty taste and texture. I can't drink it with just water, but it's delicious blended with frozen berries/banana, kale, and water! I've only tried the Vega Protein and Greens in Vanilla as that's what they carry at Costco. You can purchase it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Vega-Protein-Greens-Vanilla-Servings/dp/B00MYRXIIS
Wrong tea....you want this stuff... https://www.amazon.com/Thai-Iced-Traditional-Restaurant-Style/dp/B00NJS4S6C/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=grocery&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1518150342&amp;sr=1-4&amp;keywords=thai+tea
The recipe is on the bag, but I recommend brewing/slow simmering it for like 2 hours.
Great snack that can replace cravings for smoothies, shakes, icees, slurpees. I avoid boba shops because they are inconsistent, cost too much, and don't display calorie content (or contain too many calories).
Buy thai tea mix and a tea pot. The tea only takes a few minutes to make but should sit in freezer or fridge for 30~ minutes to cool before adding ice and drinking. Other teas work too. Most teas are 0 calories. I freeze some tea into icecube tray so that I don't have to wait for tea to cool as long. You can also make a big batch of tea and save in fridge if you want.
Boba can be made by hand or boiled from hard (30-60 minutes) or boiled from soft (5 minutes). It is about 80 calories for 1/4 cup.
I use artificial sweeteners and artificial creamers to make the tea sweet and creamy without adding many calories. Make sure to soak the boba in hot sugar water to get them nice and sweet before adding them to your (less sweet) tea. I usually use nut pods or some sort of creamer that has some calories, adding 50-120 more calories to the boba, but you can stick to zero calorie creamers if you want. I hear Stevia is the healthiest zero calorie sweetener, by the way.
Because you want your tea to cool and your hard boba to boil it takes 30 minutes to make but you aren't in the kitchen the whole time. When I get a craving I will start the boba tea and during the 30 minutes I wait. Most of my food cravings pass easily during this time as I know I am about to drink boba. I find it to be very filling by the time I am able to drink it. I find that this is something of a strategy in itself... Having to wait 30 minutes for my snack helps the cravings pass and the snack feels more filling.
All you need is that special thai tea mix..
I made it once upon a time.. I believe with stevia.. and kept it simple by just adding heavy whipping cream. had a really nasty taste. IMO your best bet would be using something like allulose maybe
You're right, not sure why you're getting downvoted. AmantisAsoko literally just copied what Wikipedia says which it clearly says may include (which most of the time it doesn't).
I drink Thai Tea all the time. It's extremely easy. I usually get Police Dog brand (what's available at my local asian grocery stores) and add in condensed milk and ice. This is what every Thai restaurant I've ever been to does and what most Thai recipes will tell you.
Ingredients: Tea, food coloring.
Weird, I'll just repost:
I use this mix and start from this base amount and double/triple/quadruple the amount for larger batches:
Boil water, add sugar and tea mix. Let it boil for 3-5 mins then turn off the stove and steep for 30 mins. Strain and store. I do 8oz tea + ice + 2-4 tablespoons of half & half per serving, depending on preference.
I used a regular strainer but there's a finer amount of stuff that pass through so I strain it again using a finer strainer. They sell thai tea strainers on amazon if you prefer that.
If you have Amazon Prime (and are in US, maybe others) you can pick these up through their Prime Pantry program for about a $1.16 a can, not including the $6 shipping for the Pantry box (about $20 for 12 cans with shipping fee, so about $1.66 a can), but this only fills up 30% of the box so if you're a Surge lover (like me :P) you can get these for about $1.33 a can if you pick up 36 ($48 for 36 cans) ;]. Surge on Amazon.
I thought this thread was about the drink
Amazon is your Friend.
You can still buy Surge through Amazon Pantry
If you have Amazon Prime you can order it from Prime Pantry for $14 for twelve cans. Three cases will just about fill a Pantry box and then it's only $6 to ship it. I stock up every few months.
Actually, they arn't sold out.
$14.99 +$5.99 shipping. Only available to prime members.
They've actually started producing it for the US market again, but it's only available through Amazon.
Looks like OP already knows that, though, since that looks like one of the new 16 ounce cans he's got in his broke-ass penatgram there.
Surge, sure: http://www.amazon.com/SURGE-12-16-FL-Cans/dp/B00OK0I4AO/
If you really want it that badly.
You can get it right here.
Here you go...
This shit is even cheaper: $8/lb
I think it'd be better if they filled it with Urge, or better yet, Surge
You can buy a 12 pack for $14
Nah, available on Amazon now.
When they first put it up, it sold out in about a day. We debated buying it, but it was gone by the time we decided to. We bought some the second time they put it up.
And you're right, it's not $40, it's $38.95. And there's currently 4 in stock.
This one by vega is amazing and not that pricey (as compared to the sport line). http://www.amazon.com/Vega-Protein-Greens-Vanilla-26-8/dp/B00MYRXIIS
Nah, just fuckin with ya.^^^^it's ^^^^really ^^^^back
You're in luck.
Damn it, you are right. Link
Coke brought it back for a limited time, but you can only order it through Amazon. My first sip since ca. 2001. Just as good as I remember it!
Stop being such a raging fuckhead and use your goddamned eyes.
Much better deal to subscribe and save on Amazon. Use your Amazon store card and get 5% back. $27.45 for the case.
try this tea
Soylent is the biggest brand name in complete foods. Basically a food product, typically a liquid meal replacement drink (NOT a "protein shake"). Kind of like Ensure, but replaces a whole meal, and also has 100% nutrition. $29 for a 12-pack on Amazon right now:
Here's my basic system:
In a nutshell:
I do a lot of meal prep. I also use complete foods when I'm feeling lazy, or for emergency situations like if I'm stuck at work late & don't have dinner handy & just need a quick meal. These are the two best ways I know to manage your food budget. I mean, you could literally buy a car with how much money you'd save by making your food at home and/or using complete foods, not to mention feed yourself like a king and/or get amazing nutrition into your body.
Getting in shape:
Also, if you haven't done it yet, jump into the world of macros! As long as you're bothering to take control of your food budget, you might as well take care of your health too! Read up on IIFYM & use the free calculator here to generate your macros: (recommend using a burner email, if you have one)
Basically, if you're not at all familiar with macros, it's very simple: you pick a goal, of which there are only three options IRL: lose weight, maintain weight, gain weight. Those are the only three things you can do to your body. Next, input your data & the calculator will generate your macros. In a nutshell, your stomach has 3 funnels to pull energy out of food: protein, carbs, fat. Your body needs all 3.
Math-wise, protein + carbs + fat = calories. You burn a certain number of calories just by being alive, plus any extra from moving around during the day. Eat fewer calories than that, you will lose weight (don't want to lose it too fast, do a google image search for "loose skin" if you don't believe me). Eat what you need & you will stay where you're at. Eat more & you will gain weight.
Let's destroy some myths: doesn't matter what you eat. Doesn't matter when you eat. If you were born a hundred years ago, your stomach would still be pulling out protein, carbs, and fat from whatever you ate. Maybe you get it from a donut & a protein bar today instead of hunting a deer 500 years ago, but your body doesn't care. Obviously, the more natural, whole foods you can eat, the better, but eating fast food or junk food isn't going to kill you. Every day is cheat day with macros!
Also, every diet in the world is based off macros. Once you understand macros & realize that it doesn't matter what food you eat or when you eat, as long as you hit your macro numbers every day, then things get a lot more clear. The more strict you are with hitting your macros, the better & faster result you will get.
This is all optional, but if you're going to go through the trouble of doing meal prep, why not get yourself a six-pack out of it? It's not any hard to use a $15 kitchen scale off Amazon to weigh your kitchen before you cook it than it is to not do that, you know? Save money, get in shape, eat awesome food, use complete foods when you're feelin' lazy. That's my system & I'm sticking to it! lol.
