Please help with ideas for liquid/soft food diet for 8 weeks

Tagerbun | Jan 11, 201301:24 AM     23

I had an accident over the holidays and without going in to details I have to get all my upper teeth pulled today. I will be getting full upper dentures but that is not for about 8 weeks when I’m fully healed. I will be very limited to what I can eat due to a jaw fracture as well, basically liquids and very soft foods for roughly 8 weeks. In anticipation of this I purchased the “Cuisinart blend and cook soup and beverage maker”. I have been dieting and made great gains with this loosing almost 50 lbs with another 60 to go. I don’t want to gain weight back during my restricted eating time by eating fatty food or too much food to compensate for the lack of solid food. I would appreciate any feedback on recipes or ideas for liquid/soft foods. If anyone has the Cuisinart blend and cook any feedback on it would be appreciated as well, as I have yet to try it. My plan is to return to work on Monday so I will need to keep my energy up as well. Thanks for your help!!!
