In addition to all the helpful suggestions mentioned here, I would like to encourage you to seek the opinion of another dentist.

Microwave that apple with some cinnamon & have with a bit of peanut or almond butter. I love that as a snack in the Fall--kind of like pie! emoticon

TY everyone!

Today I bought some bananas & watermelon to try for snacking. I figured you can't go wrong with fresh fruit. I thought about trying apples all cut up. Maybe I can try that next time I'm in town. I can't bite into a whole apple, but I'm sure I could manage slicing apples into slices.

I love hummus...so I may try some veggies dipped into it.

I've been trying the white tortilla chips with salsa, but I know I need to nix all those carbs more than I have been.

Like I always say....slow & steady wins the race.

Hummus is great. Although often paired with crackers or celery, on a soft cooked bell pepper it is really good, too. You can dip cooked green beans in it or spread hummus on eggplant slices. My Geo Foreman grill is great for cooking onions, peppers, eggplant. You can probably think of other veggies. If you want even fewer calories than regular hummus, just puree the garbanzo (chickpeas) beans with some cumin.

Applesauce is good, especially unsweetened. You can add cinnamon. You can cook dates or raisins to add a different taste, although they do sell berry and peach and green apple flavors in the unsweetened.


Nonfat greek yogurt is really good. Thaw some blueberries or other frozen fruit and it'll probably be soft enough for you without cooking. Best wishes for healthy snacking!

i don't want to repeat excellent advice below. you can make smaller portions of anything a snack- if you like soups (esp cold ones now that it's summer!) those could work pretty easily. smaller portions of leftovers could work too. soft dips like spinach dip made with greek yogurt are another personal favorite that may work well for you. think of ways to make foods you enjoy work for you- for example, i like greek yogurt with fruit, so if i'm having sensitivity (like I did after getting some fillings re-done), i blended the fruit and swirled it into the yogurt so i wouldn't have to bite down. oatmeal/overnight oats and chia pudding are good options as well!

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

Re-start: 1/2/18, -10 met 1/30, - 20 met 3/27, -25 met 4/18, -30 met 7/4
Next goal: -35 by 7/31

Applesauce is good and there are several brands w/no added sugar. Same with yogurt.

If salt isn't a big issue (well we all have to watch it), V8 has a high fiber variety that I like and is filling too. They do make a low sodium variety but not as high in fiber. That with a hard boiled egg or 100 cal piece of soft cheese would be filling.

Hope you find a dentist who can help you.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Could you also try smoothies and soups loaded with fruits and vegetables?

On a side note: have you tried changing dentists? There has to be an option out there for you.

Cottage cheese, greek yogurt, all different kinds of cheeses, hard boiled eggs, dried fruits like raisins(in limited quantities), avocado and ground flaxseed/hemp seed added to the yogurt etc all make for good snacks. I also enjoy leftover cooked veggies like broccoli with a bit of salad dressing sometimes.... There are also many softer fresh fruits: melons, bananas, plums, apricots, or even canned pears in the juice would be good.

I see a lot of the healthy snacks and even some foods that are crunchy or harder to chew. Are there any that aren't so hard?

My problem is I don't have any teeth and the local dentist doesn't have molds small enough for my mouth so can't get the dentures made because of my tiny mouth lol.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
