Smoothies! Depending on how you choose to make them, they're nothing like ice cream. Use whatever fruits you like, and whatever juice/milk/yogurt you'd like. You can add protein powder to them easily (I do this when I have a smoothie for breakfast since I can be borderline hypoglycemic - which is why I also use full-fat soy milk for them.)

Also, refried beans (make your own from a can of pinto beans), avocados (mashed up), apple sauce, yogurt, chicken broth (Pacific brand... yum!), mashed potatoes (make 'em with more liquid if they need to be really thing) (and you could also mash sweet potatoes or carrots for variety),... and that's all I can think of at the moment.

Good luck.

so skip the mashed potatoes, and maybe the refried beans (though I've eaten them cold), and the chicken broth if you don't like it cold. everything else works great cold. (particularly smoothies... yum! eh... I've been on a smoothie kick, what can I say! :-) )

- As Tarnalberry said, smoothies, applesauce, yogurt (almost all my ideas)

- Also, canned fruits (mandarin oranges, peaches, etc.). And of course, you could mash them up.

.......not much, but I hope it helps in some way

Hi Molly,

I was wondering how you were doing? I had my tonsils out when I was 15 and it hurt a lot. Now they like you to be on pain meds. since they realise you heal better and faster when you are not in too much pain! I wish they did that then. My daughter goes in in three weeks for her surgery. She is only 5 though, and it is easier when you are little...

As for the soft foods. I know this is a little strange, being that you are a teenager, but babyfood gives you a wide variety of choices and flavors. I used it when I had my tonsils out, and I've already let my daughter pick out a bunch of flavors for her to use. And they can be eaten cold.

Or you can steam any kind of veggies you want and make a veggie puree in the blender. Just let it get cold and eat it that way. I did this for my husband when he had his tonsils out last year. Do not try to puree rice though, it gets really sticky. Hot rice cereal will work though. Just cook it and add more milk to it. Stir it up while it is cooling down so it stays smooth.

Any food can be eaten cold, it just might not taste as good. The pureed baby food meats would give you a little bit of protein, too. And if you like tofu, it is soft and can even be added to a smoothie to give you more protein.

I hope you are doing well.

God bless,

Mariann
