My husband is having oral surgery to repair receding gums just before Thanksgiving. (Seriously terrible timing, but whatever.) He was told to expect 6-8 weeks for full recovery, as they'll be grafting skin from the roof of his mouth onto the gums. Does anyone have suggestions as to what he'll be able to eat to keep paleo and to keep calories up? He'd prefer not to use whey protein powder as a supplement.
What I did was just to put everything into a blender.
Raw eggs, raw liver, meat, berries, coconut milk, veggies, bone broth, salad, whatever you eat...
Smoothies with high fat raw cream, berries and juice is just delicious!
Yes, you will definitively get tired blending all your food, but it will do the trick.
Before undergoing such Drastic surgery, have you explored Periolase treatment for gum disease? There is no cutting needed and it is very effective. Look at Google and Youtube for information.
Tallow, for one thing.
Put bones and beef fat and suet in your slow cooker with water and a little vinegar.
Refrigerate the results to cause the tallow to form a nice thick waxy crust with gelatin underneath (which is broth). Spoon the tallow off (might need a crowbar) and put it aside for quick appetite suppression. Much better than lard.
