    food without much seasoning, and definitely no spices.

    Stuff like applesauce, bananas, toast, other canned fruits like peaches and pears (no citrus fruit like oranges--they have acid in them), creamed soups, jello. For sandwiches, maybe turkey breast slices.

    Nothing deep fried. Mashed potatoes without pepper.
    Scrambled or boiled eggs. Puddings.

    Foods without fiber--like bran cereals would have a lot of fiber and might be hard on your digestive tract. Cereals I really don't know about--would just be guessing.

    Hope this helps. I'm not a specialist on diets, though.

    I have heard that for sores in your mouth, that you can make up a mixture of hydrogen peroxide & liquid anti-acid (like Maalox) and swish it around and spit out. It's supposed to help heal and coat your mouth.

    It's not good to binge. I would drink soups through a straw--maybe that would not hurt your mouth and tongue and it would be nourishment. You could blend up your own food in a blender or even buy baby food and eat. Before I would let myself get too hungry, and if the sores hurt too badly, I would eat a diet of just ice cream! It would melt and should make your sores not hurt.

    After children have their tonsils out now, that have them suck on potato chips! The salt from the chips help heal their throats after surgery -- when the chips get so soggy, then they can swollow them.

    I don't know where you live, but where I do, they make a powder in different flavors called "Instant Breakfast" by Carnation. You add milk and stir, it tastes like a milkshake and is supposed to have all the vitamins, etc. that you need for breakfast. Or, at least, I think they still make it. I used to drink the chocolate for breakfast all of the time. It's not bad.

    Maybe there is a vitamin that would help you mouth to heal up. Talk to your pharmacist and ask him/her.

    Good luck. I hope you are able to eat and put on a few pounds.
