Difficulties chewing food

I've just had fixed braces (top and bottom) and suddenly it dawns on

me exactly what difficulties some people have to contend with.

My stick blender is now my best friend :-) It starts the day with

porridge and is in constant use thereafter :-)

In the past I've had choking issues, even when involuntarily

swallowing saliva. Part of the treatment is to correct my 'bite',

tongue biting/cheek biting is a nuisance, and painful :-)

It now occurs to me, how to manage when eating away from home? xBeryl
