Braces for adults, what can I eat?

Adults with braces, what can they eat?

As I searched “what can I eat with braces?” I stumbled upon an article about adults with braces. According to a 2014 survey done by the American Association of Orthodontist adults make up a record high of nearly 1.5 million orthodontics patients in the U.S. and Canada. A few weeks ago my husband became one of them.

What do I feed you???

Not only did my husband get braces, he also got spacers. Consequently he can not bite down at all! As we all know eating is a necessity therefore I decided to go on a quest to find some healthy and nourishing soft foods. I will be posting the recipes that my husband has enjoyed most.

(Before I share my first recipe I should clarify that my husband and I are not vegan but since cutting out gluten, dairy and eggs I have found a deep appreciation for vegan and raw cuisine.)

Let’s get started on our gluten free, dairy free, egg free and braces friendly recipe.

Black bean and chicken soup

Like I said we are meat eaters. My husband has a fast metabolism so it was very important for me to find ways to add lots of protein to his meals.
  • To begin I cooked a few chicken thighs in salted water. I then shredded the chicken and added it to the soup.
  • Pour black beans and diced tomatoes into a pot.

  • Add 8 cups of chicken broth.
  • You can add the seasonings of your choice. I used a few teaspoons of salt, pepper, Chipotle chile, and cayenne pepper and granulated garlic.
  • For extra protein I added a chopped avocado. This also added creaminess to the soup. In the future I will probably add 2 avocados.

  • Let soup simmer until beans are soft.
  • Add shredded chicken and blend. I use a Ninja Blender. Make sure you blend soup in batches and be careful not to overfill the blender.
