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

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
