About the Book

So you've just had some kind of oral surgery, and you're sick and tired of the liquid diet. And the baby food diet. And the no-food diet. Well, starve no more!Author Jean Bly had a similar experience, and now she's sharing her secrets on how to beat the problems caused by restricted eating. In this tastefully collected gathering of recipes, one can overcome the restrictions caused by any invasion of the mouth or gums. And what's more, these recipes are delicious! Take a look for yourself.Ranging in palate- and stomach-pleasing delights from basic biscuits to chicken and dumplings, author Jean Bly sets forth in easy-to-understand language both the process for preparation and an explanation of the benefits as well. Her experience mirrors that of many other people who, after oral surgery or treatment of any mouth-related medical problem, find the restricted diet they are placed on just doesn't fill them up or satisfy. Mrs. Bly takes care of both these concerns.More importantly--Mrs. Bly's specially-developed way of presenting the recipe is a major help to the cook in preparing the dishes without trial and error, or embarrassing failures. Her recipes also bear the two unmistakable marks of the true master of the kitchen: simplicity and economy. Every dish is presented so that anyone can prepare it, without breaking the budget or the rules of medicinal restriction.As a guide for people with teeth, without teeth, denture wearers, post-operative, or the elderly, this veritable cornucopia of tasty meals also contains hints to promote better eating habits and more nutritional meals for anyone with mouth problems. When acknowledging her own situation, that of a denture wearer who'd just had implant surgery, the author found no guidelines for good eating. Frustrated, hungry and in pain, Mrs. Bly began experimenting and through her good efforts this unique and important cookbook was created. Palates and stomachs everywhere will thank her!THE I-CAN'T-CHEW COOKBOOK is not by any means a complete cookbook and was not intended to be. My goal was to share with you what I learned and tried during this time when eating is hard and very boring. I hope you will try at least one idea and recipe in order to make your healing time pass in a more pleasant way. Having the support of my husband and my dentist, Dr. Timmon Dye, and his wonderful staff, and good food have been a great help. If you have a great mouth and perfect teeth I hope you will try a recipe or two also. Your meals do not have to be boring or soup only. Be creative, and happy eating.JeanP.S. Seven weeks after my surgery, I had a piece of bacon. Yes, it was great, but not easy to eat.
