Man oh man. Getting your wisdom teeth out means a totally different diet. Alongside of hanging on the couch all day, it takes me an insane amount to get through an entire meal. Surprisingly, the Slim Fast shakes (I got chocolate) are not bad at all. I think if you were trying to embark on a weight loss goal, they are pretty filling for only 190 calories. I don't think you should use it as a meal replacement unless you're eating lots of mini meals, because it's not too energy dense but it's a great filling snack or maybe a light breakfast. This is also taking into account that I didn't move all day, so I didn't need filling food. The best part about wisdom teeth surgery is the ice cream. I get to eat it a lot.
The strange thing is, I have to eat really slowly, which is different for me. I'm like a hoover with my food. It's devoured immediately. This is showing me it's not just okay, but better, to eat slowly. I taste my food!
Today I went with Susie and Dick to a Christmas Craft show that had so many food vendors enticing me with fudge, toffee, caramel corn, chips and dip and everything else you could imagine and I had to turn all of them down! In the last aisle however, a company was selling different hot drinks.. you name it, they had it: hot milk chocolate, hot dark chocolate, mint chocolate truffle, chai tea, cappuccino, pumpkin spice latte, caramel apple cider, etc. They also had "diet" versions of these and they were SO good. They only have 20 calories for an 8 oz cup. I got the mint truffle and dark chocolate. I need to look up the name of this company. It's worth ordering. I also got hired by a caramel/chocolate making company haha. My dream come true!!
I've been eating so much soup and yogurt.. I can't wait for real food! I feel like a grandma with dentures. It's all good though. At least I'll be healed for Thanksgiving...
