Please help with ideas for liquid/soft food diet for 8 weeks

I want to thank everyone who took the time to respond. I had the surgery and have to say it was far more painful then I had expected. The pain medication is playing havoc on my stomach so my appetite is not really there. I am back to work today, but it is a desk job. I find I am a bit light headed, likely due to the lack of food. So far I have had homemade soup, pudding, desert tofu, oatmeal and a baked sweet potato (which by far was the best). As I have to avoid chewing on both sides of my mouth until the gums heal more I am limited. ou have all given me some great ideas and once I feel a bit more steady on my feet and can spend more time in the kitchen I will try all of the ideas and have a shopping list ready to go. Once again thanks to everyone.

Please help with ideas for liquid/soft food diet for 8 weeks

I had an accident over the holidays and without going in to details I have to get all my upper teeth pulled today. I will be getting full upper dentures but that is not for about 8 weeks when I’m fully healed. I will be very limited to what I can eat due to a jaw fracture as well, basically liquids and very soft foods for roughly 8 weeks. In anticipation of this I purchased the “Cuisinart blend and cook soup and beverage maker”. I have been dieting and made great gains with this loosing almost 50 lbs with another 60 to go. I don’t want to gain weight back during my restricted eating time by eating fatty food or too much food to compensate for the lack of solid food. I would appreciate any feedback on recipes or ideas for liquid/soft foods. If anyone has the Cuisinart blend and cook any feedback on it would be appreciated as well, as I have yet to try it. My plan is to return to work on Monday so I will need to keep my energy up as well. Thanks for your help!!!
