How to Stay Paleo After Oral Surgery?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 01, 2011 at 1:05 PM

I'm having an apicoectomy to remove infection in a poorly done root canal; and, based upon all the descriptions I'm reading, I may be in a bit of pain for a few days, possibly needing to eat only soft or liquid foods. Any suggestions for some good paleo foods I can eat during this time?

So is it basically bones in water in a crock pot for a couple of days? Or are you talking about making a stew with meat and veggies plus bones? Sorry, if that's a dumb question.

Just make a stew and leave the bones in the crock pot a few extra days.

How do you make it? What does it taste like that I might be familiar with? I haven't ventured into bone broth territory yet. Everyone keeps saying it's yummy, but I'm having a hard wrapping my brain around the idea.

I love everybody's answers, but I guess I am looking for ways to keep this pretty low carb and I'm not sure how I would do that with smoothies? I have them now and then, but the carbs would really add up, I'd think. The ground meat, scrambled eggs, etc. I think are more what I'm looking for. What else do you guys think is good that keeps the carbs really low? Anything?

Just went through this too. Coconut milk smoothies, yogurt, kefir, mashed root veggies. Scambled eggs were still pretty easy to eat. Ground beef may also be a possibility.

Bone broth. Heat in a mug and sip it like tea. Lots of good nutrients for healing too.

smoothies with raw eggs and coconut milk. Easy. With an apicoectomy the incision is in the vestibule of the mouth so no issues. And you just need to avoid biting. You can still eat fish and ground grass fed meat.
