The Root Canal Diet

As I mentioned in a recent post, I had three root canals last week. While the procedure itself is pretty mild, I still can't really chew solid food. This has actually been good for my waistline and for my efforts to drop a few pounds before the bar, but, suffice it to say, I'm looking forward to having full chewing ability again, hopefully tomorrow when I go in to get the crowns.

In the meantime, I've been eating stuff like this:

I put some organic Quinoa in the rice cooker, and just before it was done added in organic black beans and chopped onion, and topped it off with some shredded light cheddar cheese. Talk about protein! I didn't think I had the hunger to finish it, but I did! It was pretty good, although I still contend that Quinoa needs some kind of acid like tomatoes to really make it delish.

I know your pain! I have had two root canals and then finally an implant all on the same tooth. Never know how you miss real solid food till you can't have it. Glad your finding things you like to eat!
