Wisdom Teeth Out: Baby Food

I'm gearing up to have oral surgery tomorrow. They pulled my left two wisdom teeth a few years ago, and tomorrow the right two are going. Last time, I lived on instant mashed potatoes for a week. This time, I wised up and bought baby food, which has come a long way! They have lasagna, spaghetti with sauce, turkey dinner, pasta primavera, roast beef, and lots of cool seedless breakfast stuff, too! I got oatmeal with pears and cinnamon, rice cereal with pears. and blueberry pear puree.

It is important that whatever you eat after having teeth extracted be seedless because seeds can get stuck in the root canal and interfere with blood clots forming and gum tissues healing. I got mighty tired of eating mashed potatoes every day last time, so this time I hope variety is the spice!

I weighed in at 155 this morning.

I am doing great staying off the diet soda and switching to decaf coffee. So far, so good on that front. 


  1. I hope all goes well tomorrow!
    I never would've thought of eating baby food but it makes perfect sense.
    Diet soda is something I'll have to deal with at a later date. Right now it's helping me with my sweet tooth.
    Congratulations on eliminating it from your life. :)

    I found my very old copy of the SMD at my mom's on the weekend!

  2. Glad for you, that you found your copy of SMD! I actually had two, but cannot find either of them. Not to worry though, I had read them so many times I practically have them memorized.

    I know what you mean about diet soda for the sweet tooth. It definitely helped me, too. Heh, this is not the first time I quit it, either. Hopefully, it will be the last.

  3. And I'm out of surgery in one piece! Yay!

  4. Woo Hoo! Hurray! I'm glad it went well for you. :)

  5. Thanks. The baby food was a flop, though. Well, the breakfasts are good, but the dinners are way too bland! I ended up eating mashed potatoes again yesterday. Today, I had canned ravioli by Chef Boyardee.
