Recipe requests: Wired jaw + Unhealthy weight loss!!! HELP!!!

kay_siaris | Dec 24, 2008 01:05 AM

Hey everyone,
My boyfriend got his jaw wired shut about a week ago and has to endure it for 3 more weeks. He isn't able to eat anything except: Ensure, Peanut butter and jelly smoothies, and Mashed potatoes and gravy. He weighed 165 lbs. and has lost about 15 lbs. in this last week. Needless to say, we are very concerned. I would be very grateful to know things that I could make for him that can be sucked through a straw but can still help him gain weight. Thank you so much! PLEASE HELP!
