No Crunch/Fizz Zone

Since my gum surgery last Thursday, soft, mashed and pureed food have become my best friends. This is food I already enjoy and find quite satisfying. Specifically they included:
  • eggplant stir-fry & baba ganoush
  • hummus
  • mashed potatoes
  • ground beef or turkey
  • rice
  • pasta
  • scrambled eggs
  • oatmeal
  • soup

I've had to avoid crunchy food such as chips and nuts. My beloved Diet Coke has also been on hold because of the carbonation. While the recovery period hasn't made me miss work, the dull ache lingers enough not to workout this week.

Now I know what it's like for old folks without choppers. Something to look forward to in my golden years. Sigh.
