My braces have me on a diet – and it is not a see-food diet. It’s a not-now diet. I couldn’t even bite into a pickle the other day at lunch. I cut it up with a knife and then couldn’t chew it after all. I tend to throw food around my mouth until I think I can swallow it. My go-to-back-up meal of a sandwich is out of the question – just think Florida reef and you’ll know what I mean.
It would be great if these limited choices had me losing weight but (!) the one thing I can eat and it feels good in my mouth: ice cream.
