I lived on scrambled eggs, baby cereal (like Pablum), milk toast made with white bread (use soy or almond or rice milk), applesauce, mashed pears, mashed potatoes - white or sweet or yams, mashed beans, soft canned fruit like peaches (mash them up), ground turkey (I don't eat red meat), tofu, tilapia, goat cheese, stewed tomatoes, winter squash like acorn or butternut (makes a good soup too), jello (lots of jello) and probably more soft foods that I've put out of my mind. It's pretty repetitious but you do what you have to do.

Hope that helps. Good luck.
That sounds good (from another milk allergy person). I'd add oatmeal with almond milk, cornmeal boiled in water & then add almond milk (aka cornmeal mush), soup that you can make from butternut squash & pureed onions, herbs, and almond milk, custard that you can make with eggs and almond milk. You can even make your own "ice cream"--look up some of the dairy free recipes. Ice creams and sorbets are good with almond milk. If you can possibly afford a Vita Mix, it's great for things like this. Smoothies can be really good too made in a Vita Mix.

I hadn't thought of cornmeal mush. I might try that just for fun anyway.

How I forgot spaghetti I don't know! Pasta can slip down easily without much masticating. Add some pureed spaghetti sauce, or olive oil, or "pretend butter" and there you go.

Myzithra cheese is made from sheep or goat milk. I can tolerate that, too. It's a hard cheese that can be melted or grated onto pasta or soft bread.

Jams and jellies make the boring soft white bread more interesting. Honey works too. It's all coming back to me now!

It was sort of strange when I could eat hard or crunchy foods after that year of healing was over. I found I didn't really miss that chewiness so much. Prior to that I was all about crunchy. Funny how we can retrain ourselves out of necessity.
