Yesterday I got all four wisdome teeth, so I wasn't allowed to eat or drink anything until 1:00 PM, at which time I drank as much water as I could stomach.my partner tried to insist I stay home and he would grocery shop for me, but I insisted that all I really wanted was produce, and he let me come along on the grounds that I stayed well hydrated and used a motorized cart of I got too wobbly. I found a container of the So Delicious coconut whipped topping, and in my drugged up state I got appropriately excited and definitely expressed it. I'm still on painkillers. so please excuse any typos.
Anyway, what I ate yesterday:
Drinks - Lots of water, a small bottle of coconut water, and some black tea brewed by clenching the bags between my empty sockets. The tannins are supposedly beneficial to the healing process, but I wouldn't recommend it unless medicalls necessary.
B - Two peaches frozen and blended to a puree (thank goodness for my Omega!) and topped with a generous amount of coconut whip
L - A few scoops of raspberry puree my wonderful, beautiful future mother- and sister-in-love hand delivered to me as a surprise. I could not have chosen a better family to become a part of! Needless to say, this was also generously topped with coconut whip. The coconut flavor is definitely still present, and it was just awesome.
D - Two large bowls of room temp red pepper soup, made by my lovely partner who ruined his perfect attendance at work to take care of me yesterday.
Today I'm hoping I can move onto slightly more solid foods. I got red potatoes, sweet potatoes, all sort of beans/lentils/peas, corn, butternut squash, and carrots to puree and/or turn to soup. And frozen bananas to turn into nice cream, and Coconut Bliss mint chocolate ice cream. I also got greens to either juice or turn into a mild curry sauce (to be eaten plain, unless I can handle a few idli.) The greens will also be for juicing, along with lemon, lime, celery, an apple, cucumbers, and carrots. I also got a red pepper, not sure what to do with it yet. Oh, and silk strawberry yogurt. I should have gotten more apples and/or pears to make Apple sauce! And chickpeas to made hummus! I bet I could do something with my tofu that would be soft enough. Maybe a mock palak paneer!
Sorry for all the rambling. I'm really hungry, and thinking of food is helping me keep my mind off the fact that the pain and nausea eds are both wearing off at once, and I'm not supposed to administer my own medication yet.
Two more quick notes:
1 - my Omega nutrition center and my blenders are my favorite things right now. If you're on the fence about buying one, I absolutely recommend it.
2 - Does anyone have recipes for very soft foods that don't involve nuts (which can get stuck in my empty sockets)? They would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for listening!
