Soft foods!

Hi everyone!

I am getting braces on Wednesday and I have my separators in now. I haven't been able to eat solid food in about 4 days and I can really feel the difference in my overall energy level. So, I'm asking for some help-- what should I eat while I am going through this process that will keep my energy level up, but still be soft enough to chew? I've been living on oatmeal and cottage cheese, so I'm desperately looking for some variety for every meal.

Thanks!

Margarita recipe

3-point strawberry margarita. I don't know how many points margaritas are usually but my mom made this yesterday and it was a nice way to end the day.

3.5 cups fresh or frozen strawberries,
2.5 cups crushed ice,
.5 cup tequila,
.5 cup fresh lime juice (5ish limes),
.25 cup sugar,
3 tbsp Cointreau (orange-flavored liqueur).

Combine all in a blender.

Serving is 1 cup. Makes 4 servings.
