Try any or all of the following: soft bread without crust but with cream cheese and jelly; chocolate (or any other kind of) pudding; apple sauce; pasta (cooked a little bit softer than usual) with just about any kind of sauce (and, if regular pasta is too hard to chew, try pastina); blueberry, apple or carrot muffins (and, believe it or not, cutting them in half and toasting them with a little butter makes them easier to chew); fish (including fish sticks); and guacamole. Anything moist or with sauce, cut into really small pieces, should also work.

I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. I can imagine how much you're looking forward to more variety in your diet. Thanks Ron & Sandy for your fantastic ideas!
If the soups you're eating are broth-based, try creamy varieties such as broccoli cheddar or potato soup. If you like, add oyster crackers and allow them to soften in the soup. Look for new pasta recipes. If you like Mexican food, maybe you could eat tacos without the shells. Serve up seasoned taco meat with toppings such as cheese and sour cream (skip the lettuce) and refried beans on the side. For dessert, spruce up vanilla pudding with sliced bananas and whipped topping, or mash strawberries with a bit of sugar and top with whipped cream.
I hope this helps!

I temporarily switched to soft bread, egg salad makes a nice sandwich, mashed sweet potatoes are healthy and easy, baked beans, soft pulled meats like barbecue, Good luck, Ron

Good Morning, Try scrambled eggs, omelets, lightly cooked hashbrowns, mashed potatoes and gravey, cream of wheat with a little bit of peanut butter, cottage cheece and a sliced tomato (inside if the skin is a problem), a can of chili with a sprinkle of cheese and diced onions, and of course ice cream.
