Delicious Soft-Diet Recipes for People with Chewing, Swallowing and Dry-Mouth Disorders
by J. Randy Wilson
This new and updated edition of the best-selling Non-Chew Cookbook is for all the people who love and enjoy tasty food, but suffer from chewing disorders that make eating less than the pleasure it should be.
Over 40 million people in the U.S. have chewing, swallowing and dry-mouth disorders. (The joint in the jaw experiences more stress than the knee or hip joint.) Some are recovering from head or neck surgery, are mouth/throat cancer patients or have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems. Others have braces or wear dentures, are patients of stroke, ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, AIDS or lupus, or are parents transitioning babies to solid foods.
This is not a liquid diet book, nor is it a blender cookbook. Inside are 200 soft and tasty recipes for casseroles, soups and main dishes featuring crab, salmon, ham and chicken. There are Mexican-flavored entrées such as chili rellenos,vegetables such as broccoli that are chopped not puréed and mouth-watering desserts. This is food the whole family can enjoy.
People with chewing disorders often exist on milkshakes, Jell-O, mashed potatoes and baby food. This book explains how they can get the foods their body requires to recover from surgery and disease. There is a new section on good nutrition by a registered dietitian, and each recipe comes with complete nutritional analyses, so that you can be sure your meals are healthy and nutritionally sound.
REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
"A unique resource for flavorful soft-diet recipes is the I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook, by J. Randy Wilson (Hunter House Publishing). This is not just a liquid or blender recipe book; it contains more than 200 mouth-watering, soft foods. It includes casseroles, quiches, soups, and ethnic recipes. Readers will also find main dishes using crab, salmon, chicken, and other meats, plus fresh vegetables that are chopped, not pureed.
Don’t forget the dessert! This cookbook features 32 cakes, pies, puddings, mousses, custards, and iced desserts to delight your palate. This is real food for real people – even when entertaining. Many vegetarian recipes, or recipes that may be easily adapted for a vegetarian, have been included as well.
The book also contains a section on good nutrition, written by a dietician. Each recipe has a complete nutritional analysis, so you can monitor fat content, sodium, fiber, protein, and calories." - Susan Courtney, MSSA The Motivator
