I know I’m not alone when I say I hate the dentist.
I mean, what’s enjoyable about it? You have to sit there while someone you barely know picks around in your mouth. Jabbing, stabbing, and prodding at your teeth. Fun stuff right? Its even more fun when you’re someone like me and have a history of weak teeth. Hereditary evidentlly 🙁
I’ve had two root canals, several fillings, my wisdom teeth pulled and most recently a tooth extracted. Let me tell you how much fun that was…
I know people dread root canals like the stomach flu but that tooth extraction was no joke! Much worse than any procedure I’ve had done in the past.
Needless to say I was fairly sore from sitting there with my mouth open for two hours while the dentist cut away at my gums and broke apart my tooth.
Food didn’t sound good but the next day I was starving and knew I needed substance so the pain meds didn’t come right back up.
It was cold, soft enough to chew, and easy to swallow.
Exactly what I needed.
What is it you might be asking?
Pudding! Not just any pudding though, a Paleo Coconut Chia Pudding that is easy to whip up the night before so it’s ready to enjoy the next day.
- 1 cup canned, whole fat coconut milk
- 1/4 cup organic chia seeds
- Optional tsp. raw honey
- Desired toppings
- Mix together coconut milk and chia seeds.
- Store in an airtight container over night or for several hours.
- Stir then top with fresh berries, toasted coconut flakes or enjoy on it's own!
Whether you’ve had a tooth extracted or not this is a good one 🙂
