Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Recommended Posts



I'm going to be starting my Whole30 next week and I could not be more excited! However, during my 30 days I will be getting my wisdom teeth removed. Pretty much I will not be able to chew many kinds of foods so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what I could do? I really don't want to start my Whole30 any later so I'm hoping I can work around this one particular weekend while still staying within the guidelines. Thanks in advance!

First off, don't trust that the hospital can give you compliant food, mine couldn't even do food without gluten :o  :huh:


I didn't have a fridge so I bought a bunch of those little organic baby food pouches.


I didn't have much tolerance for heat OR cold after I had mine out and for a few days also had very little appetite so I tried to just eat as much as I could and I didn't worry about 3 meals or the template as much, but I did buy pouches that included meat and vegetables, not just the all fruit ones.


For the after-hospital recovery at home I found I wasn't blending my soups smooth enough, depending on your surgery this can mean adding in lots of veggies can be difficult (using a sieve was best for me, although my sieve is a bit too forgiving). My recovery was a lot longer than a few days, but I had a full general anesthetic and hospital admission.


Before your surgery, you may be able to find out info on your post-surgery medication (if any) and look for more compliant options (but remember, doctors orders trumps Whole30).


Optional, but if you can use a water pick, you may find this helpful for the later healing stages when you're adding more solid foods (check that this is okay with your doc). I also found Vitamin C helped a lot with healing.
