When I got my wisdoms taken out, I pretty much did not eat for 2 days after surgery. My mouth was too bloody, and I was too nauseated from the full body anesthesia I had.
Afterwards, I ate a whole lot of applesauce, mashed taters, and soup. There's really not a whole lot that can be done to avoid 'not eating a lot. If you want protein, maybe try some quinoa pasta. I didn't eat meat for like 5 days, and the first meat I had was chicken. Easier to chew than red meats. Maybe try shrimp?
Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.
