I am somewhat lucky - I don't have to eat everything pureed. I can even eat some meat, with lots of sauces. Pureed food is easier for me as it does not get stuck in my teeth. The first solid food I could eat was a fried egg; then marinated veggies with lots of oil in the marinade.
Most of the things I eat are easily chewed; cereal, some fruits; eggplant parmesan; noodles like Phinsing does, I use small noodles like very thin vermicelli, Chinese plain noodles, and others like orzo and tiny pasta shapes; with lots of sauce. Add rice to soups, and barley. Yogurt is Ok, and I fix drinks mixed with fruit, Ensure or Boost with flax seed or psyllium seed. I add soy protein or vitamin soy powders to yogurt I make and anything else I can.
For a juicer or blender - have you heard of Vita-Mix? I have owned one for years; actually 2, as I bought another one several years back when I owned 2 houses. I still have the first one and it still works and will make juice out of anything, almost. Plus the recipe book has lots of recipes for all kinds of pureed whole foods.
Where do we start sharing recipes? Is there anything I can do to help?
Thanks for your input and take care.
