The Wired Menu

The doctors rule of "no swallowing or biting" has (no surprise here) definitely put a damper on my usual meal schedule. This morning, however, I totally kicked some jaw healing-food consuming ass. That's right...I ate an egg white! Woo hoo. Go me. Go me. Welp, wait...hold up...I didn't exactly eat and egg white...I really just swallowed one. But nonetheless...I filled me up...and I have learned, that is really the goal with every single meal at this point in the game.

So, you may be wondering...what's on the menu these days?
Below are a few of the food & drinks I have conquered!!!!:
  • Chicken broth (thrilling, I know)
  • Tomato soup (never knew I was a fan...till now)
  • Tom Yum Thai Soup with Ramen (chopped in tiny tiny pieces) from Buddha's Belly
  • Tortilla soup from El Compadre
  • Albongidas soup from El Compadre (heaven on earth!)
  • Country Crock Pre-Made Mashed potatoes
  • Oatmeal
  • Yogurt (I am currently a connoisseur of yogurt)
  • Mushroom & chicken soup broth (looks gross but fills you up)
  • Carnation Instant Breakfast (I am still 100% standing behind my review - taste good & filling!)
  • Naked Juices (Love the Berry Berry & Protein - if Whole Foods ever has it again)
  • Diet Sprite (you know I'm still not feeling well because I haven't had a Diet Coke in two weeks)
  • Water (false belief that water will deflate my face)
  • Hot Chocolate (feels so good on the throat)
  • Jello Pudding (I am also a Jello connoisseur - banana being the favorite)
  • Strawberry Homemade Milkshake!!!! (you know, I just had to use the strawberrys before the went bad)
  • Shamrock Shake from McDonald's (damn you the month of April)
  • Pinkberry Plain Frozen Yogurt - no toppings (not so fun to eat - hard to control temperature - always too cold)
  • Egg whites! (hellz yeah)
Today for lunch I will be trying turkey chili. I know, hold the phones, riiiiiiight? Super exciting. Story of my life.

It sounds like you're doing VERY well! (read: I'm envious, since I had the wired shut treatment) And seriously, I can't stress it enough: one Boost Plus, a scoop of chocolate ice cream, half a banana, and a spoonful of peanut butter in the blender. Tasty, calorie-laden, and you'll be full. It was my lunch for three straight weeks.

Try a banana smoothy it's healthy and delicious.

Add the following to a blender:

2 bananas
milk or soy for less phlegm

and Blend!
