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,

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
