No chew foods

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Anyone have ideas for some no chew foods? Though I'm generally a huge fan of both, at two weeks post injury I grew pretty tired of soup and smoothies. I ran some veggie lasagna through the blender, turned out pretty well. Been doing similar things. Any other no chew/soft/easily dissolved foods come to mind?

pumpkin/apple/berry pies with cookie crumb crust
hummus
babaganoush or anything eggplant really.
pate ( with a strong blender you can pretty much make any sort you want including fish)
corn or other grain meal mush
ajvar & pindjur
plain yogurt with green chopped cooked vegs (kale/spinach/lambs ears)

Comprex,

I think he's looking for something that tastes good. These items don't fit into this category.

NUM,

Is your jaw wired shut? I've had my jaw wired shut before. Not much fun, but you'd be surprised what you can get through a straw. He's some ideas:

1. Rueben Soup - It's like a rueben sandwich, but it's a soup. Best tasting stuff around.
2. Seven layer mexican dip. If it's too thick, it too can go through the blender.
3. M & M's.

Thanks for the suggestions. Some of those foods are already in the rotation, and many of the others are about to be. I'm getting a great return on the investment I made when I bought a commercial Vita Mix blender.

She, actually.

No, my jaw's not wired shut, doesn't sound fun. What was your injury? I've got a facial fracture, torn nerves, and tempromandibular damage from a car accident. Recovery's going really well, but I miss food in its delicious glory.

Ice cream comes to mind

you probably already thought of that.

I really like smashed califlower. I eat it in place of mashed potatoes some times.
Really good.

At least I didn't call you Dude.

I just had a shattered jaw. A facial fracture doesn't sound so pleasant.

Just remember, whatever food you are craving, it may be overrated.

When I had my jaw wired shut, I used to see Chicken McNugget commericals late at night. Man, did I crave Chicken McNuggets. I would have done anything for just one McNugget. Several weeks after I got my jaw unwired, I had a McNugget. Almost threw up. Worst thing I'd ever had.

Good luck with your recovery.

For a while there I was doing it with cumin and chipotle, because even after the stitches were removed tortilla chips were like chewing glass.

When my kids were babies, I became a fan of Gerber's plums in a jar. You can mix in a little rice cereal to thicken it up, too. I guess that's kind of embarrassing to eat baby food, but those plums were good!

And to think I was going to complain about thje root cananl and crown I just went through.Hope everyone heals quickly.The dreaded jello can be turned into something pleasant by replacing 50% of the water with vodka.

Baby food....many of my bodybuilding friends used to eat it due to the quality and nutrition and portability. You can also make your own by using the selections yourself at home.

I'm shocked this wasn't mentioned until the thread's fourteenth post.

Drink Guinness, it's good for you.

It should be a criminal offence to do that to a caulifower. They should be lightly steamed to retain the texture and flavour.

Cauliflower cheese if you must have a sauce - but not overcooked or bashed about.

Porridge with a few raisins sultanas in it, or added banana, is all you really need. It will keep hunger pangs away as it is quite filling.

Porridge? Haven't heard that name in a long time-- like mine not too hot but just right.

try some grits w/ lots of butter salt and pepper -- great w/ the eggs. it's sort of like ice cream here in the South -- well, maybe like mashed potatoes !!!
