When I had new dentures put in, I invented Instant Potato Soup. It's Idahoan spuds, I like the four cheese, with twice the water. It's smooth and easy to eat. Milkshakes, broth and other things that are easy to get into you without chewing will help till everything heals. Remember, you might be hungry and can't eat steak and carrots now, but it will be in short hiatus from your fav' food.

At 65, still working and with some decent insurance I went to a border town to have some extensive work done. The last of my ten teeth out (ready to break and fall out, but no decay) and I had 8 implants. What to eat was my biggest issue. The Doctor insisted on a "liquid diet" for the first 4 weeks, minimum. I had a friend who'd been through something similar who told me my blender would become my best friend. It has.

Two things I've tried that worked well. Cook Top Ramen noodles per directions but do not use the seasoning packet. Instead, while the water is still boiling add a can of condensed chicken noodle soup, toss it all in a blender let it rip. It was great.

My doctor is high on veggies and chicken so last night I did a Marie Calender chicken pot pie. It has lots of chicken, carrots, I added some pees and potatoes. I cooked the pot pie, put it in the blender with the extra ingredients (cooked) and let it rip. I used milk to loosen it up a bit, but not quite a soup. All the flavors were there, it was amazing.

Tonight I am going to try a doctored New England clam chowder. The soup calls for milk so I am going to cook (poach) 1lb of cut up fish (cod) in the milk bring to just below a boil, being careful not to scorch the milk, it just takes a couple of minutes to cook the fish. When the fish is flaky I will add the soup to the fish/milk and bring it back to a point just before a boil. I'll put all that in a blender, along with some bay shrimp and let the blender rip.

Give it some thought, be inventive and use the things you love to eat. My dentist told me to avoid any soda, red meat, eat lots of veggies and fruit. Fish and chicken are a great......full of positive healing properties. Good luck and here's to a quick and comfortable (as it can be) healing process.
