I am having dental surgery in a few days. What are some nutrition advice and recipes when I need to go on a liquid diet?

I am having a full mouth extraction and have dentures to replace them. I won't be able to eat normally for a few months and would like to keep my nutritional intake at a normal rate( no need feeling back and having pain ).

Dietitian's Answer

The first advice is making smoothies that you like. Getting nutrition during this time not only can help fuel but it can help bring down the inflammation post-surgery.

Aim for recipes that include at least 300 calories such as this one:
