What Vegans Eat – Day 1065, Travel Edition


Breakfast: This lockjaw thing is a pain in the neck, no the jaw! I am committed to healing and that means eating soft foods. We’ve been doing minimal cooking while on the road and I decided to “go to the trouble” of cooking our morning oats so that breakfast would be super soft. It was no trouble at all. I also chopped the Walnuts up into tiny pieces to simplify chewing and added Blueberries on top. It was served with Teeccino and Soy Milk.

Lunch: We had some leftover Tofu Rolls from Khanh’s. They seem soft but I had to cut them in pieces to get them in my mouth. With lockjaw it’s hard to open the mouth very wide.

Dinner: After our rehearsal for The Music Man, Gary and I were both very hungry. The theme was soft, but a lot. I mashed up Tofu and mixed it with Tahini Dressing and Nutritional Yeast. It was like a soft cheese. I also mashed up an Avocado and cooked some Sweet Potatoes. We warmed up some Tortillas too. Gary had a Mixed Green Salad and I chose Arugula, wilting it a little, to make it easier to chew. We took our time and ate it all up.

Evening: To finish off the evening I made some Italian Chamomile Tea for me and Gary had more Teeccino.

  1. Hi Karen, I had the same issue, some years back, after a dental ptrocedure. It was a pain and frustrating when eating! Alas, it eventually got better! I seem to remember being given some jaw exercises to do… might be something to look into.

    Loving, as always, all you do!

    • Do you remember how long it took to heal? I am almost all better, a month in to it. Funny, I found some exercises on YouTube when I first noticed the problem. One recommended an exercise using a stack of tongue depressors. I couldn’t find tongue depressors anywhere, so I gave up. I just stretched my mouth on my own. Thanks for the input and your kind words.
