I'm almost 2 months in. I loveddd Bird's eye lightly sauced (aka lower fat) Steam-In-Bag Creamed Spinach, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, plantains,spiced lentils and rice, black and/or red beans and rice, eggs and grits, pancakes during my soft periods when i first got my braces and after my first adjustment . In the meat category, I still struggle with steak/chicken and my jaw tires easily so I eat less of it. I only used to eat it for a treat anyways due to my diet. However, even before braces I mainly ate fish for protein and I have found that it's the best thing to start with once you wanna jump in that category, especially tilapia and salmon.

Don't cook the tilapia too hard though, make sure to watch it carefully so it can melt in your mouth once served :)

Tonight I made a roast and mashed potatoes and gravy. I had a huge bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy and didn't even miss the sliced meat. I am adding quite a few more numbers to my repertoire, thanks to all the great suggestions!!!

I find myself not snacking or eating as often. After spending 20 min doing the routine cleaning, I reach for a brownie or a cookie and change my mind. Just don't want to deal with all that cleaning again.

I agree totally. Food is so much effort. I ate a piece of chocolate cake last night and my mouth was a disaster after
