Need a liquid/really soft diet recipes.

Got anything? He's tired of Tomato soup and pudding.
Mushed up potatoes didn't go down, so, need something along those lines but smooth like pudding. Meat is out of the question in whole form, he chokes in seconds. Thanks for any help!!

Smoothies jazzed up with protein powder. What is this for? Why isn't your doctor helping with this?
Potatoes can be made closer to liquid. Meat can be pureed in gravy.
Do you have a blender? Stick blender?
Eggnog--made with pasteurized eggs or coddled eggs.
Vegetables pureed. Just about any food you want, pureed.

Ohhhh, poor guy... no news about his condition or treatment?
Well, for now I think variety of smoothies may be the way to go. You can combine so many different fruits, and with some addition of milk, yogurt, or if necessary some proper quality supplements, it can make an enjoyable and satisfying meal substitute.
Here are lots of examples of recipes.

I really hope he can get back to where he can enjoy real food with you soon though!! Good luck!!

Thanks you two!
Won't hear anything until monday on the barium swallow.
As for doc's ideas, i haven't gotten the fax yet, which has been 3 days now, pphhfff. It 's for, hopefully, severe reflux inflammation in the esophagus.

How about other kinds of cream soups? Split pea or mushroom? Cream of wheat or malt-0-meal thinned down some? Or Just chicken or beef broth? Jello?

Texas Girl. you get on that phone and tell them to fax the menus over right NOW! 3 days is ridiculous.

My suggestions are similar to everyone else's. Smoothies, soups in the blender, thinned out mashed potatos (potato soup) If you are making veggie soup, you can add a jar of meat baby food into the blender. Shoot you could add different meats to the potato soup.

Call that dr office and get them off their tail ends. Tell them not to make Half Baked come over there!

First thing is to get the Dr's office motivated to get you the information you need.

Butternut squash soup, carrot ginger soup, broc. & cheddar soup (pureed). Welsh Rarebit without the toast. Cream of chicken soup. Almost any soup can go in the blender. Does he like seasonings? You can make a big batch of cream of chicken - and flavor it different ways. Make the tomato feta soup that's posted here somewhere. It's important to make the food tasty.

Egg nog is good, smoothies with lots of fruit - and make sure to use some of the "Bene-fiber" product so that you make sure that he's getting lots of fiber. It might be better if he has lots of smaller but more frequent meals. Jello, pudding, tapioca (made with fruit juice or milk), soft boiled eggs.

Lots of good ideas. Also, you might want to pick up some of the supplements such as Ensure, which is primarily for seniors to ensure they get complete nutrition. You can use one of those to make sure he can get the vitamins etc that he needs.
