    Hey guys,

    I'm having a root canal done next week and the pain is really starting to get to me so it's making my eating habits difficult. I can manage to chew eggs and some Canadian bacon, but I'm worried about chicken and stuff. Liquids are okay (probably not the best route) but does anyone have any suggestions? I certainly don't want to live on protein shakes for the next week or so, but something that'll still fill me up yet taste reasonable good would be best.

    Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm not trying to be facetious when I ask: do you have, or can you get, a blender? You can puree a lot of different foods, though you may have to add a little water to tougher dishes before they'll blend properly.

    ^ I agree with this one. When I had my wisdom teeth taken out, I was eating ice cream, soup and cottage cheese. So if your budget allows, I highly recommend going for greek yogurt, frozen greek yogurt and cottage cheese and creamed chicken soup (get it? Just blend some cooked chicken breasts and add some cooked vegetables in there! icon_biggrin.gif) or buy some canned soup with the lowest calorie-to-protein ratio. Just remember to take care of your teeth after eating though.

    as was stated...when I had four wisdom teeth (two were impacted, if that is how you spell it)! I was on soup for most the time. I did throw in some lentil meals also.

    Easier for me to eat: Potatoes, Lentils, Tofu. I just supplemented this with protein.
    Best of luck! Strength and Courage!

    drink those drinks like Naked or similar, on top of your liquid diet.

    Thanks for reminding me. I've only eaten once since 8am. Totally forgot about food. Drank shitloads of coffee, though, with irish cream cause I'm out of milk.
