Default Re: Food options

I also have chewing problems, but swallowing is pretty good. My chewing problem is caused by the weakness on the left side of my tongue. -- the tongue can't move the food around while I chew. My main food sources are mashed potatoes (heavy cream and lots of butter), cream of wheat, pudding, and Progresso soups I put in the blender to make them drinkable. Most importantly, however, is the fact that I drink 4 Boost Very High Calorie drinks per day. This Boost has 560 calories in 8 oz. I can only find it on Amazon -- not in my drug stores. This Boost helps me maintain my weight and even gain some.
