Special Diets 15

Fighting to keep my voice

I was recently re diagnosed with throat cancer. The first time I got the diagnosis we did surgery, radiation and chemo and I was on a liquid diet for about one week which wasn't the end of the world. This go round there will be no surgery or I will never be able to speak again, and 20 weeks of radiation. In the meantime my Dr. recommended that I go on a full liquid diet. Not a clear liquid diet but a full liquid diet. His rule of thumb was if you have to chew, don't ingest it. Can anyone please help me find healthy recipes for this sudden long term possibly permanent life & dietary change?
