7 posts in this topic

I am going to have jaw surgery in the summer and I need some new ideas about what liquid foods that i can have. Now i am weird but i don't like ice cream or smoothies and that is a HUGE prroblem becuase I just had my wisdom teeth out and the hardest part was getting enough food to keep my stomach full...

i want filling foods that are soft/liquid becuase the said i will be on a soft food diet for at least a month and i am starting high school in aug. and i don't know if i will be able to chew then so any suggestioins are welcome

I totally feel your pain hun...... try these, their yummy!

***Cream of Rice cereal (Its gluten-free...make it with more water or milk so its more liquidy)

***Applesauce

***Dole peaches (plastic jar... mash them up good and you can slurp them)

***Mashed potatos (do not use boxed because they are not gluten-free)

***Mashed veggies afer they've been cooked

***Tons of juice

flagbabyds,

You want to also get some protein. If you get some plain whey protein or egg protein powder (make sure it is gluten-free) them you can mix it with the other pureed foods. You can also get the little jars of pureed meats from the babyfood section of the store.

And there are some brands of instant mashed potatoes that are gluten-free. Idahoan Instant Original and Barbara's Instant mashed potatoes are two that I know of. Of course fresh baked or boiled are probably healthier, either way they need to be mixed to a smooth runny consistency.

Any soft cooked food can be blended up into a shake like drink. I don't recommend blending rice. It comes out very sticky. I tried this with my husband when he had his tonsils out (at 36 years old!) and he couldn't stand it. And he is by no means a picky eater!

God bless,

Mariann :)

Flagbabyds,

Just saw this and thought I'd add grits to the list. They are very quick (can be made in the microwave) and you can do lots of things to them -- make them spicy and savory (salt, pepper, paprika, butter & Parmesan cheese if you can tolerate lactose) or sweet (maple syrup, cinnamon, applesauce, with milk or soymilk or rice milk) and it is very filling, so you do feel like you've eaten something substantial.

I'd also suggest you get hold of a few good soup cookbooks (many soups are gluten-free) and invest in a handheld blender, which is usually only about $25 or $30. It's really useful for pureeing soups and other things because you can do that right in the pot without having to pour it into a food processor or blender (very messy and time consuming). The handheld blender takes literally a couple of minutes and it makes soups so much better. You can get an enormous amount of nutrition from one soup and it'll taste good also.

Good luck -- it's good you're preparing ahead of time, it will make it a little bit easier to get through.

Zippyten,

Great ideas! :D I just picked up a new handheld blender at RiteAid for $14. I felt it was safer to use, since my husband uses our regular blender for his non-gluten-free foods all the time. I can make smoothies and soups and stuff.

My daughter is just starting the gluten-free/cf diet and will be having her tonsils out this summer. This topic is helping me to figure out what I am going to feel her as well.

Thanks everyone for the great ideas of what to eat. I am hoping my daughter will not notice the tofu in the smoothies, since I think that will be a good way to sneak in some protein.

God bless,

Mariann

I drinka ton of miso soup. All you do is put a couple tablespoons of miso (make sure it is gluten-free ) in a mug, and add water until you have a ratio that you like. Easy, salty, full of protein.

Is "Ensure" gluten-free? It wouldn't be the most delectable meal, but at least it would be nutritious. Obviously, soups and stuff, but I don't have any suggestions in that category...I've never had too much of that stuff

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
