Need soft mushy food ideas please

Recommended Posts

I'm having major teeth issues right now and am on a waiting list to see an emergency dentist. It doesn't always hurt to eat, but I'm worried it will start. So far I have no issues with hot/cold.

 

I've come up with pudding, yogurt, smoothies....what else?

Oatmeal, lightened up mac and cheese, eggbeaters/eggs, soup, chili, cantaloupe/honeydew melons, bananas, cottage cheese.

 

I hope it's nothing serious and you get in to see the dentist quickly. Feel better soon.

Stacey - just about anything can be made into a soft food using a blender :) You might need to add a little liquid.

 

Be sure you get adequate protein - lots of yogurt would help.

thanks for the replies...and Rose, I chuckled at your post because although almost anything can be made into a liquid with a blender, there are some foods and combinations that lose their appeal when blended.

 

We went grocery shopping and I got a variety of stuff, so I should be ok. And yes, tons of yogurt.

LOL - I agree! When my mother was very ill, and we had to practically liquify everything we gave her, she gave us a really hard time about some of the "soups" we came up with! :D

I had my jaw fractured years ago and had to suck through a straw. I was before blenders were in every home. I am a speech patholgoist who advises patients who need mosit soft diets. Here are my first recommendations:

 

Soft, Moist Food Ideas

Cold cereal soaked in thickened milk or cream

Scrambled eggs, omelets or quiche

Pancakes or French toast with butter and syrup or fruit sauce

Macaroni and cheese, pasta dishes with a cheese, cream or tomato/cream sauce

Buttered noodles with parmesan cheese

Perogies, chopped fine with sour cream

Pasta or potato salad

Egg salad, tuna salad, pate, liverwurst, guacamole, hummus or cream cheese spread

on a slice of soft, crustless, buttered bread

Chicken a la King, creamed salmon or seafood

Fish poached or cooked in a sauce

Soft cooked vegetables with a cheese or cream sauce

Melon, avocado, bananas

Canned fruit (packed in heavy syrup) with cottage cheese

Cream pies or sponge cake with custard sauce

Cookies dunked in hot chocolate, coffee or tea (thickened)

Extra Soft Food Ideas

Soft boiled or poached eggs

Hot cereals such as oat bran, cream of wheat, corn meal, oatmeal, congee

Plain or flavoured yogurt or Minigo®

Cottage cheese

Hearty broth based soups, borscht, congee, cream soups or chowders (blended if

necessary) – can be thickened with instant mashed potato flakes

Split pea, lentil or bean soup

Ground beef, pork, lamb, chicken or turkey cooked in gravy

Add strained “baby” meats or canned fish to soups, sauces or gravies

Mashed potatoes, carrots, turnips, yams or squash

Cooked puddings such as tapioca, rice, bread or custard

Jell-O® or instant pudding mixes

Applesauce, stewed, mashed or pureed fruits

Flavoured dessert tofu

sorry to hear your feeling sick. i had the same predicament after taking out four wisdom teeth at the same time (not a smart idea).

 

-slim fast shakes (they are a good way to fill up)

-cottage cheese

-cream of potato soup

-brocoli cheese soup

-any soup for that matter, you can even throw in some croutons or crackers and let them become mushy so you can eat them too

 

if anything, just try and cook your food accordingly. ifyou want pasta,just cook it more so its softer for you.and perhaps eat it in smaller portions. and smaller bites

 

the toothpaste "sensodyne" is amazing for tooth pain. i use it the second my teeth bother me.however, it is not something you should use on a daily basis when your not in pain, as your tooth will naturally become sensitive and used to it. if that makes sense.

 

also-heating up some cloves and putting them on your tooth will definitley help the pain.
