Help! What Are Some Foods I Can Eat Without Chewing?

Good Questions

Q: Help! I got into a bike accident recently and as a result have some chipped and cracked teeth. One needs an to be removed and replaced with an implant, but this isn't happening until a couple of days from now. I am a college student and spend my days on campus or at work.

As much as I love yogurt, soup and smoothies, they are getting old (I'm on day 3 since the accident). Any other suggestions? My chewing ability is limited, though not completely gone. Thanks!!!

Editor: Readers, what would you suggest to Maris? We are thinking of a bowl of very soft noodles in a thin broth (more noodles than soup, though) and perhaps some polenta with tomato sauce. What else comes to mind?
