Here in just over a month I’m getting my lower 2 wisdom teeth extracted. Unfortunately, one of the two teeth is real close to the jaw bone and nerve endings in my mouth. It can be extracted (needs to be), but it’s going to leave the jaw vulernable to a break for 4-6 weeks, so the oral surgeon is recommending a soft food diet for that time while the jaw completely heals.
Obviously, I don’t want to lose all of my gains I’ve made the past few months, but I don’t want to break my jaw trying to chomp down on a burger, either.
Aside from eating lots of yogurt, cottage cheese and drinking every kind of protein shake I can think of, does anyone else have any good ideas of what I can add to my diet?
