Lost My Wisdom

As the title says, I have lost my wisdom....teeth! On July 31st I had surgery at 8am (too early to even function!) to remove impacted wisdom teeth. When we did x-rays it showed that I had only three wisdom teeth,  so I can say I'm not in complete pain but two of those were my bottom wisdom teeth with are the most annoying ones every! With top wisdom teeth there isn't really anything you need to watch out for, food can't really get stuck in the top but the bottom, if you have anything that has small things in it, will most likely end up in the hole where your wisdom tooth was. So something as simple as strawberries (whether it was yogurt, smoothie or an actual strawberry) was out of the diet till you were able to chew and clean out the holes properly!

When you first get them out, you will need protein and a lot of stuff that will help you heal faster. I had yogurt, yogurt fruit smoothies, pudding, vitamin water (different flavors!), jello, cream of chicken (blended with an immersion blender!) The day after around 9pm I was so wanting something that would fill me more and wasn't so sweet (who would of thought not wanting icecream!). I scoured the web to find some soft food recipes but a lot of them were things like tofu and at 9 o'clock at night, I was not going to go to the store to buy some tofu. Finally I found something so simple, that had me questioning why I didn't think of it before. Scrambled eggs! They will fill your stomach, make you happy and you could add just about any seasoning to it! But I'm just like my grandmother when it comes to making eggs, you only need eggs, milk, salt and pepper. It's so easy to just eat eggs because you don't really have to chew them and they go down easily.
