Here are an assortment of recipes for a entire meal based on fresh in-season summer produce, meats, and sea foods that are suitable for those who have trouble either chewing or swallowing normal whole foods.
The degree of blending or pureeing needed will vary depending upon the swallowing ability of the eater. In addition additional thickeners may need to be added to drinks and thinner sauces for those who have more severe problems with swallowing. In such cases produce that leaves behind tiny seeds (such as strawberries, raspberries, or even the addition of chia seeds) should be avoided entirely or strained before serving.
