@adriennef Hi Adrienne,
Ten years ago I had gastric bypass surgery. Post op I could only eat soft foods for about a month. Some of my favorites are cottage cheese, yogurt,applesauce, chili (Taco Bell’s chili is still a favorite as it’s smooth and a great source of protein) you can puree some of your favorite foods in a blender. I’m not sure if scrambled eggs would be okay as far as swallowing.
I hope you find something new!
Jen

Thank for the suggestions, Jen! And I apologize for only thinking about H&N cancer patients in regards to soft foods. There are so many other conditions that require it. Thanks for noting the Taco Bell brand of chili. I tried eating it from Wendy’s and it was waaaay too chunky. I didn’t realize Taco Bell had it. Thanks for the input!

Lots of us share the soft food diet. The thing about H&N treatment is that is alters taste if you have radiotherapy and spicy foods can sting. But I love a mild butter chicken with sour cream even if the rice sticks in my teeth a bit.
