    Staying primal w/ a broken jaw...

    Primal Fuel
    I just had to have my jaw reset yesterday morning, which means everything I eat has to be blended and sucked through a straw. This, of course, most easily done with processed powders, dairy, and juices. Just blending what I'd normally eat sounds easier than it is- I had italian sausage last night, blended and strained w/ beef broth. Itcame out well, but I had a hell of a time trying to suck it up.

    Any suggestion, anyone been here before?

    Are you adverse to dairy because it doesn't agree with you or because some people interpret it as being neolithic? Mark puts it in a "decide for yourself" area. If your system tolerates it, kefir all by itself or as a base for shakes could be your best friend right now. You could blend in some eggs, berries, etc.

    Other than a little gas, my system's fine with dairy; I've been overdoing it a bit, though, in the last few months, and am more concerned relying on it wholly. I'll look into the kefir, though.

    Because it's fermented, it can be much easier on your system. Even some people who are lactose intolerant when drinking regular milk do fine with kefir.
    Also a lot of people do fine with raw dairy products (the laws on this vary from state to state). Also goat milk is easily tolerated by many people who have a problem with cow milk.

    I recently started drinking cultured coconut milk but I don't know if this is available everywhere. It is the consistency and tangy taste of kefir but with less carbs and more fat. A very tasty option.

    You could try to locate some maca powder to mix in your drinks if you need/want more carbs. It would be a natural alternative to powdered mixes.

    There is also a guy who makes a protein drink powder (c'mon memory) that is just eggs, totally natural stuff.

    Maybe some avocado diluted with olive oil? I usually use that as a base for my homemade salad dressings. I'm sure you could dilute it with other oils such as coconut oil, and it would come out just fine as well.

    Avocados, definitely.

    You could start with a homemade mayo base. Just bend 2 raw eggs then drizzle in about a cup of oil (I like coconut, olive, or avocado oil). Drizzle it in really slowly with the blades turning on high through the hole in the lid. Then, when you have mayo, you could blend in lots of other proteins like canned tuna or chicken. The creaminess of the mayo might make it easier to get it down to a straw worthy consistency.

    Definately thinking "green smoothies" ultilizing kale, spiniach, ect...

    Just water, ice, cup or two of kale, and maybe a 1/4 cup of blueberries and viola!

    I wonder what the result would be if you just made a meal like normal and tossed it in the blender, veggies, meat, spices and all. Would it taste good? I mean... It all goes to the same place, right?

    The sausage didn't taste bad, but even after being mixed with broth and seived, it still clogs up around my teeth. I don't imagine food that compliments eachother on a plate would be bad companions in a blender, though.

    I make a smoothie with kefir and two eggs--whites cooked, yolks raw. But when I was in graduate school and had my wisdom teeth out I got so tired of sweet shakes that I finally put what my parents were eating in a blender--squid with tomato sauce. Do you like mashed cauliflower? How about cucumber soup?
