Except for the pudding, this is pretty much what I ate while recovering from having all four of my wisdom teeth extracted.
Not pictured is this bottled protein shake by Bolthouse Farms. I drank a lot of that (the chocolate flavored one) since I couldn’t really chew and get nourishment from any type of meat. I heard scrambled eggs was good to consume but, I don’t like eating plain eggs (without any meat on the side). I couldn’t really taste the protein powder that’s in it. It tasted like chocolate milk to me.
The cream of rice was good. First time trying that. I switched back and forth between that and oatmeal for breakfast, with a banana, water and about a cup of that protein shake. I’m still watching my wheat/gluten-intake so, the rice was a good option over cream of wheat. It had the same consistency.
Lunch and dinner was usually soup or baked/mashed potatoes. Sweet potatoes was a nifty change up from regular ‘ole potatoes. Husband made me this fantastic, fresh cream of asparagus soup. It was really good! The recipe doesn’t use a ton of cream to thicken it up and make it creamy. The addition of fresh sauteed asparagus blended with potatoes did though. I will be making that one again.
Sometimes I had more cream of rice for lunch. To give it some flavor, I added a bit of chicken bouillon base to the boiling water. Nothing spectacular taste-wise. Just something different.
In between “meals”, I snacked on bananas, JELLO, applesauce (which I choked down…is it just me or does applesauce taste like blood?) and delicious banana & greek yogurt smoothies.
Oh, and vanilla Frosties from Wendy’s were the best! The best.
What foods did you eat after having teeth pulled?
