After years of being on a soft diet (and sometimes a no-chew or even a liquid diet when my mouth was wired shut), I’ve accumulated a cabinet full of blenders, immersion (stick) blenders, juicers, protein powder, etc. Here are the products I think are essential for TMJ patients….
A great blender is necessary, and the first thing I would buy if I was told I needed to be on a soft diet. I have tried many, and these are my favorite at the moment:
An immersion blender is really great to have when you are making soups, and they aren’t too expensive either!
Juicers can help us get vitamins, fruits, and veggies when we normally wouldn’t.. I highly recommend the Breville, it’s the one I had when I was wired shut:
They have several different price points available (but keep in mind that if you buy the cheapest, you probably aren’t extracting the good stuff out of the fruits/veggies… we learned this the hard way with a cheaper juicer).
