Hi @cdpm. It certainly sounds as though soups, broths, stews and low carb liquids in general are the way to go, until your mouth has recovered and you're back on track.

Blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry.

25g of each.
A lovely combination @MrPeaky, although some of us have to limit the portion size of blueberries because their carbohydrate content is significantly higher than blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.
