I was lucky enough to have my wisdom teeth removed yesterday afternoon. And although (I guess) I’m glad they were removed, my face still hurts and I still can’t eat solid foods. In preparation for this, I picked up a few vegan friendly childhood favorites at the local health food store. Vegan jello, soy yogurt and organic chocolate pudding, which was veganized by using almond milk instead of cows milk.
While all of these treats turned out deliciously, I quickly grew bored of eating just these three things. I was able to choke down some oatmeal this morning, and just ate a banana with some peanut butter mashed together, but nothing is really satisfactory.
I want to use this post as a place to generate ideas of soft, delicious, vegan foods that can be eaten after wisdom teeth removal, or any sort of procedure where you’re forced to eat soft foods.
Lets start with the obvious things:
- vegan jello
- chocolate pudding
- soy yogurt (also other varieties of vegan yogurt)
- dairy free ice cream
- fruit smoothies
- mashed bananas
- mashed potatoes (plain or sweet)
- oatmeal (after the first day)
- maybe a tofu scramble (?)
Well, looks like I’m out of ideas.. In that case, I’ll tell you what I ate for my last meal of solid food yesterday morning. This should come as no surprise to anyone who reads this blog with any regularity. I made strawberry and banana pancakes!
Of course, these pancakes were topped with 100% maple syrup, made in Michigan, which I picked up at the Maple Syrup Festival a couple of weekends ago.
