Saturday Menu 2/4
Strawberry-banana smoothie with flax.
A WholeSoy cherry soy yogurt.
1.5 chocolate Earth Balls.
A little White Bean and Roasted Garlic Soup and a slice of organic wheat bread.
Another day of pain and liquid food. It's not quite as bad today, and I can open my mouth a little wider... but I still had to tear my bread into tiny pieces, and those Earth Balls needed to be broken up like whoa. This whole thing is especially annoying for me because I like my food chunky. Crunchy peanut butter. Lumpy, coarsely mashed potatoes. Chunky applesauce. Soup with big pieces of stuff in it. If there's a smooth option and a chunky option, I will invariably go chunky. So this whole no-chewing thing is really putting a kink in my existence.
Calorie-wise it was a very low day. I know I didn't top 1,000; my best estimate is somewhere around 850 to 900, give or take a few on the Earth Balls because I don't have nutritional information for them. 900 calories isn't nearly enough food, and on most days I would be starving. But I've been up since 7 am and I'm not hungry at all. It's weird. I don't really know what's going on with that outside of the general mouth pain issue.
