Friday Menu 2/3 - White Bean and Roasted Garlic Soup

Breakfast
Oatmeal made with soymilk, raisins, flax, and maple syrup. The left side of my jaw is killing me. I see soft foods in my future.

Snack
A clementine. Ow ow ow owowowow. Baby oranges should not hurt this much.

Lunch
A banana-date smoothie with flax.

Dinner
White Bean and Roasted Garlic Soup from Vegan with a Vengeance. I love garlic, especially when it's roasted, so of course I love this soup. I only made one change: I didn't have fresh sage, so I used a little less than 1/2 tsp. of dried. It was delicious, and inoffensive to my increasingly stiff and swollen jaw. At this point those two things are of equal importance.


So yeah, I didn't eat much today. Mostly because I couldn't. It's now 10:58 pm and I can only open my mouth about half an inch before the searing pain kicks in. It's fun. I really hope this goes away soon. Otherwise me and my absolutely-no-insurance are going to have to see a dentist, and I really can't afford that right now. Or ever, actually.

Aw man! I really hope you feel better soon! Not having dental coverage really stinks; I recognize the feeling very well... :( Take good care of yourself!

Thanks, I'm trying. :) I didn't really mind the lack of dental insurance until this started up, but now I'm wishing quite a lot that I lived someplace with universal healthcare. Ugh.

I just found your blog today & I love it...it's getting bookmarked right now!

That soup looks good! I might make it this weekend.

Hope your jaw feels better...I, too know what it's like to have no dental insurance.

Aww, thanks. :) (For both the well-wishing and liking my blog.) The soup was pretty tasty, I have to say. Very rich-tasting despite the fairly low fat content - the magic of roasted garlic, I assume.
