I had 16 teeth removed 12 days ago for full uppers and lowers and will be going for my first adjustment tomorrow.  Pain and aggravation are beginning to subside quite a bit but eating is quite a challenge.  A few things my wife and I have found that I can handle are: Canned fruits, peaches, pears, mixed fruit/  Raviolis - Taste great but would suggest you cut em down to small bite sizes after they're cooked/ Carnation Instant Breakfast - Just a drink but I think it is designed to have some nutritional value and they taste pretty good.   I wanted meat and found that Cormell Taco Meats are great!  Already shredded, put in a bowl, add a little water and microwave for 1.5 minutes.  Tastes like real meat.  At night I take em out and treat myself to some M&Ms.  No peanuts of course but just let em melt.

15 removed 4 days ago. Stitches coming out tomorrow. Carnation instant breakfast, oatmeal, mashed potatoes and chocolate pudding have been my choices. I tried steak the other night. Let me just say my sons dog left the table happy.

Nyerenga, you were a brave person to have attempted a steak just days after your extractions! My experience has been that I ,just this week feel like I could try a steak and my extractions were on August 4th.

Good luckď

Don't know if you're still here, but here goes...a really good Blender, like Bullet or Ninja or VitaMix will become your best friend. I can pretty much eat solid food now, even steak. But sometimes my gums flare up, and I have fibromyalgia so sometimes it just hurts to chew. Even before dentures I was leaning to soft foods.
Anyway with a good quality blender you can make healthy, delicious shakes from fresh ingredients without those chemicals that are in things like Instant Breakfast.
With something like VitaMix you can also make creamy, hot soup. OK you start it out in a pan on the stove, just to kickstart heating the veggies. But, when you put the stock and veggies in the VitaMix or other high speed quality blender, the friction of letting it run for about 20 minutes builds up heat to finish cooking the soup.
Maybe we could start a Topic Thread for sharing Easy To Eat recipes?
Or just pick it up here...sharing recipes and suggestions?
