Soft Foods That Do Not Require Chewing

If you click on one of my recommended item links and then place an order through Amazon, I receive a small commission on that sale, at no extra expense to you.

At 57 years old, I got braces on my lower teeth and Invisalign on my upper teeth to correct a deep bite. After the braces were put on I realized I couldn’t bring my molars together to chew food.

I decided to use my training as a dietitian to experiment with foods and meals that I could enjoy and then share this with others who have had the same type of orthodontic correction or have had their teeth removed prior to getting dentures or have some other dental condition in which they cannot macerate their food with their teeth.

The first two days I found it easiest to drink smoothies and eat yogurts. After that, I started experimenting with various textures and sizes of chunks of food that I could manage to eat and enjoy. Here I share with you the foods that I was able to chew and enjoy plus links to some of the recipes.
