I just remembered another favorite I had which helped satisfy the savory cravings and it was excellent!!! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/gi...

I also didn't add the cream in it and it was still delicious! So with you being kosher you wouldn't even need the cream and it went through my wires fine!

So sorry to hear about your son! My mom would also make me this carrot potato soup. It was completely puréed and so delicious! I also had some of the box soups from whole foods and trader joes if u have those near u. I remember liking potato leek. I was craving the savory as well!

So sorry to hear that! It was so frustrating but I promise u will get through it! I drank muscle milk protein shakes every morning for breakfast with a straw with baby farina hot cereal with a straw as well. For lunch and dinner I would have Campbell's cheddar cheese soup thinned out with chicken stock and drank with a straw. I was craving cheese so that helped my craving. I also would have all puréed soups. I would strain them and then dilute them if they were too thick with chicken stock. U have to unfortunately only stick to liquids or it will be stuck in your wires. I did lose a lot of weight as well bc I am also as u are vry petite. So I treated myself every single night to a fattening milk shake from either the ice cream place or I would make them at home and buy good icecream and whole milk! Please let me know if u have any other questions! Best of luck on a full recovery!!!!

Thanks all so much for the feedback! I appreciate it so much! I tried drinking some clam chowder the other day but even bein strained after those LiL clams snuck their way in and got stuck in my wires! Maybe now that I can use a straw ill try it again being I had to drink it before and made it very hard! Also with the cheeses that's my weakness so I tried Campbell's cheddar cheese soup (which I normally use to make my delicious home made Mac n cheese prior to this lol) and I thinned it out with stock and enjoyed that too! I definitely want to look into baked potato soup I keep hearing about that idea. The straw change today definitely will help me find more options! Like I said before I have major issues blending chicken up and other foods so stickin to soups is what's best for me but unfortunately I need more fat to fill me up! I am going to try out all of it ideas thanks so much! The weight loss I know comes with this type of injury but as I said before I'm 30 yrs old very petite and tiny as it is and trying to not be below 100 lbs seems impossible right now with the low calorie diet! I swear I'll never understand how people survive not eating food!!! I dream about food all dayyyyy longggggtt now more than ever!!!

Thanks so much for responding! Me n the blender are definitely best friends now! I'm craving so many things its so hard! I just feel better trying different soups though Bc the thought of blending chicken parm ( which I want more than life) I don't know if I can get it down in a straw n enjoy it but I guess I have to! Unfortunately I know weight loss is inevitable but I am so petite as it is that I don't want to look scary! And this past week my calorie intake has probably only been like 300-400 a day which is even scarier and IF THAT! I want to be able to get over the fear of drinking food n just do it! I do use broth in everything to make the consistency as thin as possible! I'm going to attempt things later try and toughen up! Everyone keep saying to try mashed potatoes but idk how that can be come thin enough even with the stock n blender! Sorry just so frustrated! Thanks for writing me back!

My jaw is wired shut!

Hi everyone! I need some majorrrrr help!!! I was in a horrible accident and had my jaw wired shut last week. I will be this way for another 5 weeks! At first all I could eat the first 2 days was chicken broth! Then I finally was able to have a muscle milk protein shake n that helped fill me up for breakfast! Ensure doesn't do it for me! Today I FINALLY got more feeling in my lip and was able to use a straw! But still everything I've tried (which is only soups) has to be blended to a water consistency! I need recipe ideas or places to try because I'm loosing my mind and walking around growling 24/7 is unbearable!!! Please whatever help u have ill try!!!
