When his wife was diagnosed with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems and needed surgery, the oral surgeon told Randy Wilson that his wife would need to eat soft foods for six months. The author took this as a challenge and developed 200 meals that were soft, appealing and nutritious. The self-published version of the book sold 33,000 copies. It has been endorsed by oral surgeons, exhibited at conventions of the National Oral Surgeons, the American Dental Association, and the Registered Dietitians Association. Many medical professionals use the book in their daily practice, and the author now wants to reach a larger audience.

The book contains helpful hints, a foreword by an oral surgeon, and a chapter by a registered dietitian. It is spiral bound so it will lie flat while you are cooking. It is not a liquid diet book, nor is it a blender cookbook. The recipes all have nutritional analyses.

The book offers new and creative ways to prepare food for the person on a soft food diet. The rest of the family will also enjoy these recipes.

I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook

Praise for the first edition, the best-selling Non-Chew Cookbook

Nearly 200 spiral-bound pages of liquid and soft-food recipes for denture-wearers, people recovering from jaw or throat surgery, and some cancer patients. All recipes have nutrient information.

Good Housekeeping

What he developed not only helped his wife but drew a response from thousands of desperate people across the country

Tampa Tribune

The book features caloric intake tables, a food groups table and a helpful hints section to get through this period of life.

St. Louis Globe-Democrat

They’re easy, tasty dishes with a wide range of meats, fruits and vegetables. Wilson has earned an impressive list of endorsements for his books.

Detroit Free Press

No-chew recipes with more punch than strained carrots and runny mashed potatoes. Wilson not only is thoughtful, he is also ingenious.

The Phoenix Gazette

"A creative new cookbook should be a welcome wonderland of fresh ideas. If you love fine food but can’t prepare or chew most recipes, order the Non-Chew Cookbook."

The Miami Herald

The number of orders for the book is clear evidence that many people crave such suggestions and recipes for tasty foods.

The Orlando Sentinel

For millions of people who have lost their chewing functions — even temporarily — because of facial skeleton malformations, dentures, cancer of the mouth, TMJ disorders, minor oral surgery, [this book] may just put the bite back into eating.

Dentistry Today

Innovative, appetizing recipes for a group of people with serious eating problems. The book is helpful and practical.

— Richard S. Rivlin, M.D., Chief of Nutrition,

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

"The I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook is well organized, easy to read, and very appealing. I admire the systematic way Randy Wilson has gone about putting the book together. It is truly needed, and I look forward to using it for many years to come."

Peter E. Dawson, D.D.S., St. Petersburg, Florida

This masterful treasury of nutritionally sound and appetizing recipes stemmed from Mr. Wilson’s loving need to help his wife. I feel this book offers exceptional variety to soft-food dieters.

K. Eric Alpha, D.D.S., M.S.D., Grand Junction, Colorado

"The I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook impressed me because it caters to a segment of the population that has been completely ignored to date. The recipes can be used by everyone in the family, not just the individual with the swallowing or chewing disorder. Nutritious and appetizing recipes everyone would enjoy!"

Jennifer Anderson, M.S., R.D., Food and Nutrition

Extension Specialist, Colorado State University

"The ramifications of the I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook are enormous. It is a must-read for all who are unable to chew due to TMJ dysfunction, dental problems, or other health restrictions. It gives a comprehensive and detailed nutritional analysis of the recipes. The I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook is a much needed resource in developing and maintaining a nutritional diet, which is so essential for healing and well-being."

Diane K. Hartley, R.P.T., St. Petersburg, Florida

It fills a much needed niche for total patient care. Patients find the recipes tasty as well as nutritionally sound.

Barry Staley, D.D.S., Aptos, California

"Thank you for allowing me to preview the I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook . I believe the book will prove to be of great value to a large number of patients who are unable to chew because of ailments of the mouth and teeth, and you have performed a considerable service to these people in writing it."

Dhadrasain Vikram, M.D., Memorial Sloan-Kettering

Cancer Center, New York, New York

The greatest pleasure that a cookbook can offer is a palatable selection of appetizers, soups, vegetables, entrées, and desserts that fulfill our need for gustatory enjoyment. The I-Can’t-Chew Cookbook certainly meets that requirement. However, the primary motivation behind this book is to offer nutritionally balanced and tasteful recipes to individuals whose choice of foods is limited by their inability to chew.

Millions of Americans suffer from the consequences of poor chewing function. For many, this has been the result of birth deformity, and for others it has been secondary to facial trauma or surgical alteration. Given the limitation of abnormal mastication, these individuals find little to rejoice about in most cookbooks.

The number of people in the United States with loss of chewing function is enormous. Malformations of the facial skeleton, with significant alteration in the structures of the bite complex, occur in approximately five out of every one hundred births. More serious facial deformities and clefts of the facial bones occur in one out of every six hundred births. These individuals, if their problems are left uncorrected surgically and orthodontically, face a lifetime of nutritional compromise because of their inability to chew common foods. Their attempts at proper dietary intake may be a difficult, if not impossible, task to undertake.

Edentulous people, that is, those who’ve lost their teeth, form the largest group with permanent compromise in chewing ability. Twenty-five million Americans have lost their teeth due to dental caries and periodontal disease. The more fortunate ones are fitted with prosthetic teeth that offer an adequate replacement for their lost natural ones. The remainder, however, either cannot be fitted with dentures or cannot afford the reconstructive surgery and dentistry available to rebuild the mouth structures. When faced with the loss of a function that was once enjoyed daily, and perhaps taken for granted, these people not only lose the ability to eat certain foods, but also may deprive themselves of the will to gain adequate nutrition because of psychological depression associated with

    My wife has difficulty swallowing and I prepare all her meals. This cookbook was recommended by a speech therapist, and I was really looking forward to getting some good recipes and helpful hints. What a disappointment! I’m a scratch cook, and I didn’t find an entrée that didn’t use a can or package of something, usually condensed soup. And I really didn’t need a cookbook to help me make lemonade or a smoothie or chocolate pudding! There’s a real need for a good cookbook of recipes for people with chewing and swallowing issues. Unfortunately, this isn’t it.
