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

As for the other things I can think of.. I do not know it they are gluten-free so I wont risk it and in letting you know. Good luck! :)

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

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/
    • So I've been glutened....
      Hi JMG, Since it's easy, and always fun, I'd blame your sister. That's what I do.  But seriously, if it's an ongoing problem, rather than an isolated incident stick with your first guess.  Then test it.   So get rid of the oat bread or the sister (her food) or anything that is a consistent part of your diet and you suspect could be the problem.  Of course processed foods are the most likely issue always. It's easy enough to drop back to a very few foods for a few days and see if things improve.  Eating with celiac isn't about having the most exciting diet, it's about eating a medically safe diet.  So it can be boring sometimes.  That's ok, being in pain is exciting but not so fun.   Boring is fine. You might ask your sister what brands of flour she used, and other ingredients.  Then check on those products for possible gluten issues.  If they turn out to be possible problems, make a note of it so you can avoid them in the future. My own sister has been gluten-free for years but she has made me sick several times with her "creations".  It really is best to trust your own cooking and nobody else's for at least 6 months as you are getting used to the diet and healing.  Then slowly branch out and add things in maybe 1 new item in a week.  Slow and controlled diet changes are the way to go.  Boring but safe.  Happy but slow.    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Jmg I am sorry to hear you are unwell. You have been so kind and helpful to me on the boards here. You deserve the time to rant too.   Everyone's suggestion of probiotic is helpful. I have taken them since the 1990's in spurts as needed but was told by my DC after this March glutening I should take it daily "for life". My local store ran out, (I buy the type that must be refrigerated so the manufacturer does not ship direct to customer.) I was ok first day without it but by day 3 I knew I had to locate some for the probiotic/ enzyme blend was necessary for me. I have still not healed well enough yet to be without. As others said it could be cc from sis or the food  industry. Within the food industry even with parameters in place errors can be made- hopefully not too often.  Often rare though especially if not designated facility.  It is hard to know some days what it was. I do hope you get better soon. Yes I do think it can affect the brain/mood. Happens to me a large amount can be immediately,  but a smaller amount by day 2 after glutening. I want to ban gluten everywhere in my environments, unrealistic I know,  but have only been able to do that at home.  Be kind and patient with yourself at this time as you would tell me. ((((((Hug)))))
    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that

      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.
