Liquid Diet After Broken Jaw
Since my son broke his jaw the only help I have found for recipes all want a small fee to get them. You have enough going on after this happens and a little free help is nice.We have taken regular food and made it so he can drink it through a straw. They are recipies in a since but not traditional recipe form. There really is not much out there to tell you how or what kind of foods that you can fix.

Quick Flat Bread
This is a quick recipe that I make pretty often.

I find a flat bread can be made pretty thin cutting down on bread consumption. Plus it's cheaper and much healthier than store purchased bread... And this recipe does not use yeast.

Here goes..... Makes a nice sized batch of 6-8 breads.

Mix 2cups of organic wholemeal flour, 1tsp salt, 1tsp sugar, 1btsp baking powder and 1tbsp olive oil.... Mix that up with a fork.

Get a cup of warm water and add it slowly to the mixture, stiring with the fork, until you think you have enough for a soft dough.

Lighly flour a board and turn the dough out.... knead for 10 mins or so. You will get a nice soft, smooth dough.

Let the dough sit for 10mins.

Heat a large skillet / flat pain and spray a little oil onto it's base... it should be very hot.

Roll out some flatbreads. Put a bread into the pain and spray the top. They should only need 30-40 seconds per side and should bubble nicely.

... I sometimes add herbs and spices or curry powder for different flavours.

I have a lot of recipes... I started cooking when I was 15. At 16 I was managing the kitchen of a greek restaurant.

My food has always been delicious, but the healthiness was always questionable.

In the last couple years my focus has really changed from the instant gratification of taste, to the long term gratification of health.

One of my favorite dishes to make is this.

Salmon slowly cooked with garlic and extra virgin olive oil.
1 avocado
For my carbs, I make a combination of quinoa and organic brown rice. I usually drizzle some olive oil with mashed up garlic on top.
1 diced tomato on the rice.

That's pretty much it.

I have more if anyone wants..

Right now, I'm learning my healthy meal plans from my little sister. She's a dietician, and has really helped me make a big change in my diet.

If you can afford it, I'd recommend talking to a local dietician. It's worth it in the long run.

One of my favorite healthy fast foods is sardines - high in nucleic acids, omega-3's - and cheap and easy.

Sardines and kale over pasta

1. Cook hi-protein, whole grain pasta
2. In a skillet, put 2 T olive oil and 1-3 garlic cloves, chopped.
3. Heat for a few seconds then add 3 c. chopped kale.
4. When kale is wilted, pour pan contents over cooked pasta.
4. Open a can of sardines and put a few sardines on each plate with pasta and kale.
5. Add a few dashes of hot sauce, black pepper and grating of pecorinho cheese.

Delicious and quick.
