Blending food for a broken jaw

I just recently was asked by a good friend who broke their jaw, how I got by with eating. She told me that she was over ensure and those types of eats. So I figured I’d share the email.

Hey Nina!

First and foremost I’m sorry to hear that you’re on the forced liquid diet…

Brian and I actually broke our jaws at the same time in 2008. The difference between us was that he lost a ton of weight and I stayed the same. Performance wise I was still able to compete and ride with the same amount of energy. Brian didn’t have as much energy. It was hard for both of us to breath though hahaha! This is why….

Brian strictly stuck to his Dairy Queen milkshake routine. That’s pretty much all he ate. Those and fruit smoothies.

I stuck to a way different way of eating.

The ensure drink is good because it’s loaded with vitamins and what not. Pretty much every morning I would load of the blender with..

Ensure or Muscle Milk
Assorted fruits
Agave nectar or honey
Hersey syrup
Greek yogurt
Brown sugar
Nuts
Etc….

You can add whatever you want. Just experiment with it. Use certain fruits and flavoring to get a different taste each morning. I know how it is to be bored with the taste of things..

Lunch time!!

This is where things get interesting. You can almost blend anything! My personal favorite was….

Chipotle or Qudoba veggie bowls (no meat)

Rice
Beans
Guacamole
Salsa
Sour cream
And a side of the black bean sauce

The black bean sauce gives you a solid liquid to blend. Or you can pick up a bunch of different flavor based broths from the store… Chicken, mushroom etc..

Throw all that in and blend it up really good. Sometimes the rice will get stuck because it didn’t get blended. Keep in mind to use a lot of liquid. Broths or black bean liquid.

I used black beans and the liquid that they sit in pretty often.

Dinner time! This is where shit can get crazy!!

My favorite!

Sirloin steak from chili’s
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Broccoli
Broth of your choice

One time I blended spaghetti. That one is harder because the pasta doesn’t get blended up all that well. It’s tough, but it does work.

So those are just some ideas. Once you start blending things up you’ll start to get more ideas.

Pastas don’t really blend that well and ground meats don’t either. I tried to blend a hamburger once and it just doesn’t work.

I know it might sound gross right now, but I’ve been where you are. I know what it’s like to just want to taste something that isn’t a fruit smoothie. After about a week of fruit smoothies you’ll just about blend up anything you can get your hands on and down a straw.
