Eating has been difficult the past few days. I had a wisdom tooth removed on Friday, and even though everything seems to be healing up nicely, I haven’t been brave enough to risk eating many of my normal foods. There have been a lot of pastas and ice cream the past few days, and as much as I hate that, I didn’t have toooooo much choice. Tonight I made a first attempt at some slightly more normal foods, and since that seems to have gone fairly well, I’m going to pack a normal-ish lunch. I’m so excited to return to normal foods that I can’t wait to post exactly what I plan to have… I’m such a dork!

Tomorrow’s lunch:

  • peanut butter sandwich on light wheat bread
  • 1 banana (1/2 of it will most likely end up on the sandwich)
  • 1 apple
  • baked potato chips
  • a larabar (pecan pie, I believe… not my favorite, but it’s what I have left in the cabinet)

Tomorrow’s food will be spaced out as such (times are obviously estimated, but for the sake of getting it down):

  • 6:30 – smoothie
  • 11:45 – sandwich and banana, apple
  • 2:30 – potato chips (this is going to be risky, but I’m going to give it a shot… it should be ok if I keep it on the other side of my mouth, right?)
  • 5:00 – larabar
  • 7:00 – dinner… most likely soup and a salad, since I’ve been really craving some lentil soup, but was afraid that the lentils would get stuck in the hole in my mouth

I may allow myself some sort of dessert-y type of food, but most likely not, since I’m absolutely sick of sweets the past few days!

It’s good to be back to semi-normal food. Still, I won’t deny that I’m craving a veggie burger, but am still quite positive that my mouth can’t handle that yet.
