So I'm getting my gummy food diet worked out

Smoothies
Oatmeal
Cream of wheat
Mashed potatoes
Blended chili
Refried beans
Tomato soup
Chicken broth
Pudding
Jello

That doesn’t seem very appetizing.

You can eat anything cooked soft enough or cut small. Use a crockpot to slow cook meats to be soft.

I hope to get chili done this week and freeze. Maybe I’ll do some meatballs as well. Should be easy to mash and still taste decent. Someone told me I should eat baby food lol. Yuck. I do love mashed bananas.

Have you thought of scrambled eggs? They are easy to eat. If they’re still too hard, add milk as you scramble them.

My teeth are being extracted next Thursday to prepare for dentures. I’m getting all 19 pulled that day. I’ll be without teeth or dentures for close to a year.

Banana pancakes would be good! Just banana and egg. Or even just eggs. Scrambled eggs with tons of soft diced veggies. Cut spinach, mushrooms, onions, and eggs with a big dollop of sour cream on top. Give you plenty of texture without really needing to chew.

Bags of puff corn are great, too. They’re sort of like the texture of puffy Cheetos.

Mmm we call them popcorn twists. They are like chips for little kids. Melt in your mouth. I didn’t think of those! My chip replacement :sunglasses:

If you look up mechanical soft diet I bet you can get a ton of ideas for when you get bored with food.

Once my gums heal a bit for sure. Probably stick with soft white bread. I really like the seedy heavy bread but fresh white is yummy too

Do you like yogurt? There are some awesome flavors out there. Don’t forget Starbucks frappes. :wink:
