We are grocery shopping tommrow sometime and I need help to get an idea what I need to get. I would go with the suggestions in the pantry section however I have a problem.<br>
I have a few teeth that is bothering me, I am in a waiting period of getting it worked on or checked.<br>
I tried to eat something today and it hurt my one tooth.<br><br>
So I am getting Some Amy's Kitchen entrees and burgers, I am getting organic greek yogurt tommrow, Some Vegeterian styled ice creams.<br><br>
Pasta and some beans of some sort.<br><br>
I am in so much pain I need to eat soft stuff like the pastas, mashed potatos, smoothies, soups and soft entrees and stuff.<br><br>
Thanks for the help<br>
Peaceful

I am bumping this up for more help and ideas, I can't have crispy things, crunchy things, anything that will hurt my teeth and gums. I tried a simple lasunga type recipe last night and I hurt my one bad tooth and gums because a burnt piece got mixed up into it.

Beans! Refried beans, black beans, baked beans, things like that are soft and good and the cans are pretty cheap. Progresso has a really delicious lentil soup, too, it's packed with soft lentils and the veggies are cooked very well and they're soft and aren't even noticeable. They also have a minestrone soup which is vegetarian but not vegan, I had it as an omni and I remember the veggies being very soft and cooked in that one, too, and Progresso soups are a lot cheaper than other veg*n soups like Amy's. I don't like crunchy veggies so I eat a lot of beans, too. Tofu dishes, many potato dishes (like mashed potatoes or baked potatoes with margarine mixed in to make it soft), and oatmeal is good, too. Spaghetti and other pasta dishes are great, too.

do you have a good blender where you could make green or regular smoothies? You could get a lot of nutrition in by blending fruits and veggies together without having to chew! I personally prefer softer foods anyway over hard cold crunchy salads, although I eat them. So, soups and stews are great!<br><br>
Do you have a crock pot? I really like the cookbook Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FFresh-Vegetarian-Slow-Cooker-Recipes%2Fdp%2F1558322566%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1312131138%26sr%3D8-1" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Fresh-Vegetari...2131138&sr=8-1</a> and they are all vegan recipes, although the title says vegetarian. Again, totally soft food and if you work, it could be put together and ready when you get home.

It's important that you not only eat greens (kale, chard, collards, spinach, mixed greens) but also chew them on occasion, too (in other words, don't just blend into a smoothie every time).

Why is that? Do they lose some of their nutrients when they are blended?

Thanks Penny for the salad and green stuff.<br><br>
My teeth that been bothering me had be extracted today, so after my recovery I hope I can go back to greens and salads.
