Sorry for the delayed response. I'm still a little new to this app. But I would say anything more on the raw side because it makes me feel better. I am a huge fan of rice, quinoa, beans, and oriental cuisines.

Hi Wendy,

I'm sorry to hear about the health turmoil that you're having to deal with!

Will they be fitting you with a set of dentures, or implanted artificial teeth?

Are you able to eat soup, made with softer cooked vegetables? You can make/buy great soup with beans, rice, and leafy vegetables (like kale or collard greens). Just add canned broth and some hot sauce to spice it up. Lentil soups are part of traditional Portuguese, Northern Spanish, Armenian, and African cooking. Many supermarkets have canned lentil/bean/veggie soups.

Do you like Mexican-style refried beans? You can buy canned vegetarian refried beans at most supermarkets. It's easy to chew, and it's good with avocados and salsa.

Nut butters (peanut butter, walnut butter, etc.) are easy to eat, and they provide protein, healthy-type fats, and minerals.

If you like oatmeal, you might enjoy mixing a little mashed tofu into the bowl. The tofu will add protein, calcium, and iron to the oatmeal, and the tofu doesn't really change the flavor of the oats. Oatmeal is quick to cook.

Cooked sweet potatoes are easy to eat - plenty of vitamins, too. They are quick to boil, steam, or microwave.



Has your physician referred you to a Registered Dietitian - someone who can help you plan a healthy, satisfying diet that you can chew?

Hi Wendy, and welcome to the forum. What kinds of foods do you normally eat? Maybe we can suggest tips on how to make them vegetarian.
