Hi there, I've been so thankful for sjogrens support helping me help my mom out. We've been through so many struggles. Mom's supposed to get full dentures this year but since she had lost SO MUCH weight they advised her to do it in two stages. We did phase 1; phase 2 is ahead.
In the meantime Mom DESPISES PUREE. With a passion.
But we were able to move into the same house where we settled into a fairly good mechanical soft diet routine where she's getting enough calories, she's back on her feet getting a more strength up as I "custom tailor" meals to her liking. And she still uses her remaining teeth.
I thought there must be other caregivers and patients out there who might be interested in seeing what we've done so far, especially if they have the same struggles we did. So I created an ebook called "Chew Less Eat More: Mechanical Soft Nutrient Dense Soft Food Ideas For The Greatest Generation & Beyond".
It's got recipes (mostly southern with some whole food and paleo influence) and a lot of brainstorm lists with links to recipes. Being new to ebooks it was a little hard to format (no page numbers!) so be kind!! The info is there.
Do you have a favorite soft food? Do you have a go-to meal for days when you're flaring or having tooth trouble?
I'd love to hear other share their stories...
